Direct Mail (DM) and Every Door Direct Mail (EDDM)

Whether you choose traditional DM or EDDM, this type of marketing is still a great way to get your message to your clients.


Click here for a quick pros and cons overview!


But there are several facts that you need to understand before you begin your campaign.


1) When undertaking any type of marketing strategy like a direct mailer, you should be prepared to advertise a minimum of three times! Whether it be a post card, then a brochure and finally a follow up letter, putting your name in front of the client and keeping it there is key.


2) Average return rate on DM is 2-3% with 5% on the high end. EDDM is too young to get the numbers, but most likely, it will be less. But no matter which you choose, there are many ways to increase your return on investment (ROI).
• Is your mailer eye-catching?

• Has it been professionally created, designed and printed?
• Are you printing in full color?
• Can you use a unique envelope size to catch the recipients attention?
• Is the mailer flat or is there a 'Free Gift' inside?
• How is it addressed (DM) – name or 'resident'?

3) With DM, what is your mailing list like:

• Did you purchase it from a reputable supplier?
• Do you have rights to use it more than once?
• What criteria did you use?
• Were you able to provide demographics to specify the clients you are looking for?

• Can you request specific zip codes?
• How about developments within a township?
