About 15 years ago, I created the direct-to-business owners postcard marketing industry, giving small businesses across the country access to the marketing advice and technology that big-time ad agencies were hoarding.
Today, I am proud to announce that PostcardMania is about to change the industry (and the way you market) once again!
Introducing Direct Mail 2.0!
That’s right! We have fundamentally changed the very idea of what a direct mail postcard campaign is. We’ve made it better, more efficient, and more technologically advanced. If the industry standard postcard campaign is a 2-D comic strip, Direct Mail 2.0 is Toy Story.
It’s a game changer – and I couldn’t be more excited about it!
Let’s face it, direct mail postcards have always worked (that’s why we use them), but they have gotten a reputation for being ‘old school’ or ‘no longer effective’. Neither is necessarily valid but nonetheless, businesses fear using them over the newer ‘more exciting’ marketing channels. That’s why we re-engineered this whole process….
• With normal ‘old school’ direct mail, you needed a separate follow-up system to keep your name in front of prospects. Direct Mail 2.0 seamlessly integrates with Google Remarketing, so you automatically follow up with online leads – without lifting a finger. Google Remarketing is pretty much the greatest new marketing tool ever. In a nutshell: your prospect receives your postcard and they go to your website to check you out. But they’re not quite ready to act. With Google Remarketing once they visit they’ll now see your add on sites they visit afterwards over and over again. This warms them up and gets them primed to interact with you. This is part of Direct Mail 2.0.
• With normal direct mail, you would order postcards and then wonder when and if they would reach your prospects. Direct Mail 2.0 comes with a built in tracking system (integrated with the USPS system) that tells you exactly what day your piece hits each address.
• With old school direct mail, you had to manually tabulate how may responses you received and add up the Return on Investment (ROI) on your own. Direct Mail 2.0 comes standard with a response tracking system that helps you easily analyze your results and uncover your ROI.
And with all of this change, we didn’t mess with the main tenets of Direct Mail one bit. Your targeting options are still the best marketing has to offer. Here’s a short video to give you a visual of how Direct Mail 2.0 works…
