Online Business Owners and Internet Marketers – Learn to Use Direct Mail Marketing

For those of us who have a lot of online business to do, we’re often ignorant of the fact that a lot of our buyers exist offline, and they could use our services. It is not a good reason to think that they will have no interest in the items which you are selling, simply because they do not utilize the Internet. When you’re running an online business, you have to remember offline marketing as well, especially given the glut of Internet businesses out there. Direct mail is certainly not a new idea, but it is one of the tried and true paths to success. Use this advice to create a successful direct mail campaign.

Many people erroneously assume that direct mail must be constructed in long form. Getting people interested in your products and services doesn’t require writing pages and pages of ad copy. You don’t have to do this at all! Some of the best direct mail pieces are postcards with just a few words on them! Your target market, as well as the kind of business you have, are important factors that will determine the kind of direct mail that will serve you the best. You may actually need to write a letter. You might only need a postcard with a simple graphic and your website address on it. You should never make baseless assumptions before beginning. People would much prefer getting mail that’s not intended to sell them something whether you’re marketing via email or snail mail. Instead of the usual sales pitch, include in a letter information about your niche that recipients can use or that informs them of an important community issue. If you send out a few of these each year, people will be more likely to open up the mail and respond to the mail that does contain a sales pitch. Keep in mind that we all like to get something from time to time that we don’t have to pay for.

You might balk at this, but you have to make sure to use real stamps when you do your targeted direct mail campaign. In putting actual stamps on your envelopes, it grants a much needed personal touch to your direct mail which other marketeers will not use, even though it can be tempting to allow the post office’s automatic postage machines to accomplish the task for you. It’s that kind of detail that can win a prospect over and make them a customer. Personal-looking direct mail will have a much better shot at a response.

The key to the success of any business is to explore all of the options that are available to you. The beauty of direct mail is the ability to reach the people who would have otherwise been unreachable due to lack of Internet use or knowledge. There are many people out there who are forgotten about in marketing because they don’t use the Internet as often as others. The easiest means of reaching out to those persons is via direct mail.
