Advertising Mailing Lists
Finding the right advertising mailing lists is an important part perhaps the most important step in creating a successful direct marketing campaign. At AllMedia, we pride ourselves in giving our clients the best service in the industry, finding the reliable lists and sorting for the best prospects so that you increase your response and your sales. But there are other important points besides your advertising mailing lists to consider as well.
Plan Ahead Dont try to put together a campaign in a week. Give yourself enough time to carefully plan your strategy, create your marketing materials, find your target audience with advertising mailing lists, and mail out at the right time. If you rush to get your great product or service to market, mistakes will be made and the inevitable glitches that happen in any campaign will destroy your tight timelines. Every campaign is different, but expect to have at least a month of preparation time before you launch your offer.
Consult Your Suppliers Contact all of the subcontractors you will be dealing with right from Day One including your creative agency, your mailing house, and even your advertising mailing lists broker. Find out what each needs from you and your other subcontractors, and what timelines are realistic for their portion of the project. A common error in direct mail marketing is that the creative agency designs a package that is un-mailable, or more expensive than it has to be. Send a proof to your mailing house before you give your creative agency final approval.
Consider Your Price Point Although this may sound like basic Marketing 101, the price you set for your product or service will have a tremendous effect on the response to your offer. Do an informal survey of friends and colleagues to get opinions if you are not sure of your price point. A test mailing to your advertising mailing lists will also help (see below).
Send a Test Mailing Test mailings of about 5,000 pieces will help you sharpen your message and discover possible shortcomings in your package. You should have a response/sales rate of 2% or more. If it is lower, then review the key aspects of your campaign including your price point, your marketing message, and your target market chances are there is something wrong in one or more of these areas. Review the customers who did purchase your offer, and see if you can find any similarities there (e.g. were they all women, all from the same area, all the same age, etc.)
