Merry Maids Case Study

Postcard

cleaning services postcards

Design Features
Merry Maids used a light, pleasant color scheme of soft blue and green. They showed a picture of a woman smiling while cleaning and asked prospects, “Would you really be that happy cleaning after a long day at work?” They offered to take care of their cleaning so they didn’t even have to worry about it. The bright, clean visual design, the image reinforcing the marketing message and the well-targeted copywriting all worked together to create a compelling marketing impression.

The Situation

Merry Maids is a nationwide franchise providing residential cleaning services. Rob Mascari has been operating as a franchisee with 2 locations for over twenty years.

It conveys a: • Headline relating to the prospect's situation • Graphic that supports the message • Solution to the prospect's dilemma Mailing List: Homes in proximity to their two locations. Mailing Schedule: 1,000 postcards per week for each location.
