printing and mailing

Do you need direct mailing solution?

You may be using the physical form of marketing for years, but getting in front of the right audience is a pain when it comes to the traditional form of marketing. Direct mail marketing, with automated software, is the best way to boost your brand awareness, get in touch with the right leads, begin new relations with your prospects, and increase your sales.

There’s no denying to the fact that digital marketing or social media presence are very tempting to invest in, but if you’re willing to reach the right people directly and see the life-changing results with the least amount of effort—direct mail marketing is the way to go!

Overview

United States Postal Services delivers 181 million+ direct mail each day without a lag. Believe it or not, but according to the 2015 Gallup Roll, most Americans still love to receive direct mail.

With direct mail API, you can mail regular postcards, personalized marketing direct mail, invoices, or any other type of mail to your specific existing or targeted potential customers. 

Along with the delivery, the direct mailing solution, PostGrid also provides printing, and address verification services.

Plus, with the customization and automation solutions – all operated from a single dashboard – you can run your direct mail campaigns just like email marketing.

By managing your direct marketing campaigns with an automation tool like PostGrid, you’ll get no-hassle, a super-easy process, and a chance to outperform your competitors within a limited budget.

Let’s find out how that’s possible in more detail.

Traditional Direct Mail Vs Direct Mail Automation

Here’s the basic difference between traditional marketing and direct mail automation

Traditional Direct Mail Marketing

  • Manual Process 
  • High Investment
  • Back and forth running to get the designs ready and different teams’ approval.
  • Meeting multiple vendors to get the best deals for printing bulk direct mail.
  • No specific way to target the right audience.
  • No specific way to find out the location of your direct mail.

Direct Mail Automation

  • An easy and automated process that you can handle from a single dashboard and be done with the entire thing within hours.
  • Comparatively lower investment
  • Control everything from a single dashboard. From designing, printing and mailing to verifying addresses for higher accuracy
  • Access to 100’s of compliant, professional print and mail partners and benefit from high volume sends
  • Allows you to launch your direct marketing campaigns in front of the targeted audience.
  • Get notification on the exact location of your direct mail.

Let’s understand them in detail.

Traditional Direct Mail

The old fashioned conventional form of marketing, no-doubt brings the results, but at what cost?

You need to do most things manually and spend more energy, time, money, and resources into it. Besides that, it’s hard to track the on-going campaigns, such as your mailer’s location and analytical results. And that’s the reason why most businesses consider it a hit and trial method that may or may not work.

We’ve divided the entire process into some smaller categories to create an understanding of how the traditional form of marketing costs you more instead of bringing the high returns.

Costs a Fortune

  • Most businesses know well about the excellent performance of traditional marketing. Yet, they decide to choose digital marketing because the old way of direct marketing has always been way too expensive.
  • Due to the lack of technology and targeting used in traditional marketing, it feels like shooting arrows in the dark. Hence, companies avoid high investments in such marketing techniques. 
  • With PostGrid, you can effortlessly carry out a successful direct mail campaign in an automated manner by integrating to your existing stack without having to change your existing workflow all with a click of a button. Have added capabilities to send letters, postcards and cheques. Save on resources and time and benefit from highly personalized and targeted direct mail campaigns.

Manual Tedious Tasks

  • From creating the mailers manually to mailing them – all the tasks take ages to get done.
  • Loads of resources, human potential, and money get wasted in the process.
  • With PostGrid, you can control everything – creating the direct mail, getting them printed and shipped – from a single dashboard.
Schedule Manual Reporting
target new customers

Poorly Targeted

  • Without a targeted audience list, businesses in the past would launch their direct mail campaigns in front of a vast audience.
  • The broad audience’s list would include people of every zip code or details of people belonging to a very extended area. Such contact details can easily be bought from a broker, and it’s a no brainer that mailing on such a big scale costs too much money.
  • With PostGrid, customization and personalization is seamless, have highly targeted mail going out to the intended recipient without compromising too much on cost or resources and have a successful targeted campaign enjoying higher response and engagement rate.

Out of Reach

  • Due to a tremendous amount of money, resources, time, and employee potential, traditional marketing was inaccessible for most businesses.
  • Plus, no print lab would accept printing less than a certain volume which is huge for most small and medium businesses. It’s beyond the budget for certain small and mid-sized companies.
  • With PostGrid, if needed, you can even print and mail a single personalised postcard, letters or cheques.
