Tips for an Effective Postcard Marketing Campaign

Choose the Right Mailing List

One of the most effective tips for a successful postcard marketing campaign is to have a good quality mailing list. Almost half of your campaign’s success depends on your list as it can connect you to your target audience, which includes individuals or businesses whose demographics match those of your best customers. If you want to get the most out of your campaign, choose a mailing list that includes prospects who want what you’re selling.

Offer Value to Customers

What do you want your audience to do when they read your postcard? Do you want them to call a phone number, visit a web site, return a form, visit a location, or respond? Whatever you goal may be, make sure it is easy for your target audience to respond in that manner. You should include all channels of communication including phone, e-mail, physical address, and social media. You can add value to them by including a schedule, coupons, tips, or other information that might be beneficial to your audience and compel them to save your postcard.

Be Clear and Direct

With postcard marketing, you only have a few seconds to grab your readers’ attention and persuade them to take action, instead of throwing your card in the trash. Some ways to keep them interested is to keep your message brief and to the point, and make sure your readers know exactly what you can offer them with a quick glance.

Test and Analyze the Campaign

The more postcards you send out, the greater the chance of response, but you don’t have to stick to one kind. You can test different versions on small subsets of your list before deciding on a final version. Doing this test and analysis approach will help you figure out what details of your marketing material are most attractive to your customers, and in the long run you will see an increase in return on investment.
