The Situation

MM Dental Laboratories makes custom dental products, such as dentures, implants, and crowns, in Irvine, CA. They needed to sell more products to dental and orthodontic offices, so they came to PostcardMania for marketing assistance.

The Solution

MM Dental Laboratories started sending out postcards with us in 2017 and have been mailing them out fairly consistently since then. In November of 2020, amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, they continued their direct mail marketing and ordered 36,000 postcards.

The mailers went out in five batches of about 6,000 – 8,000. MM Dental Laboratories provided a targeted list of dental and orthodontic offices in various parts of the country.

The postcard included the following design elements:

  • An inviting photo of a family and coordinating colors that attract the eye
  • An offer for a free starter kit
  • A list of popular products and their competitive prices

As the postcards went out, follow-up Google advertisements appeared on recipients’ computers who visited the website, reminding them about their company’s products and offers.

The Results

They receive 2 new clients a month from consistently sending out postcards!

Typically, MM Dental Laboratories receives about 7 responses every time the new cards are delivered to prospects, and they convert 2 of them on average.

Since each new client generates them anything between $100 and $500, that is a monthly profit of $200 on the low end and $1,000 on the high end.

Annually, this would make MM Dental Laboratories between $2,400 and $6,000. Due to the fact that this business started mailing postcards in 2017, it equates to a lifetime value of $9,600 – $24,000!
