Marketing by mail has been popular for decades simply because of its potential to reach thousands of customers and target specific audiences. Today, while the Internet is so drastically changing shopping and buying habits, conventional direct mail has proven to be more useful than ever. Targeted postcard mailings can either increase traffic to your website or foot traffic to your brick-and-mortar business location - or both at the same time! Your results will depend on the design and substance of your message as well as the quality of the mailing address data you use. takes pride in providing mailing lists of the highest list quality.

Putting a direct mail package together takes more planning than most people realise. It has to look attractive, capture the eye, interest the audience and retain their attention for more than a couple of seconds. Depending on the media used, the postcard, letter or envelope design has to be simple but attractive, and not look like typical direct marketing. The copy has to be compelling enough to interest the reader, and to call them to action as well as highlight the benefits of the product or service.

While all those elements are important, they aren’t why the prospect is going to contact you, or buy from you. In the end, clever written copy, a well designed card, letter or the personal touch will be forgotten in seconds once their attention shifts.

What are the two most important words in direct marketing?“The offer.”

To have any success at all, any direct mail package has to have some kind of hook. An offer that gives the reader a reason to buy, something to make them think they are getting a good deal, and a reason to choose you over the competition.

The mailing list for your direct mail efforts is equally as important as your mail piece & the timing of your mail drop. Similar to the navigation system on a cruise missle. you can spend all the money you want on the hardware but if it isn't aimed at the correct target and land at the correct time, its a waste of dollars.
