E-mail and social media marketing may slowly be gaining popularity, but most small businesses still see a world of opportunity with direct mail campaigns. Surprising as this may sound for others, direct mail marketing actually gains a 25 percent response rate among audiences, compared to the 23 percent garnered by e-mails.
One way to ensure some attention and a response from a prospective customer is by sending them a postcard. Postcards are inherently intriguing for most people, since these evoke a desire for them to read the message on the back and learn more. You must create a postcard that’s both engaging and eye-catching, make it standout from other items in the mail, otherwise your recipient wouldn’t even bother to take a close look.
