Direct Mail

What is direct mail marketing?

Direct mail marketing is the making and sending of advertising materials through the mail. It includes audience research, list building, and more. Direct mail is advertising mail not requested by the recipient. Direct mail comes in a variety of formats and usually includes an offer.

Who Uses Direct Mail Marketing?

Businesses and organizations from a variety of industries use direct mail marketing. Restaurants, grocery stores, and auto repair shops send menus, coupons, and promotions. Politicians, charities, and nonprofit groups send donation letters, brochures, and campaign postcards. Even tech companies use direct mail marketing to reach their prospects. Any business that sells a product or service is a good candidate for a direct mail campaign.

Does Direct Mail Work?

It does! The upward trend in response rates over the years shows direct mail’s effectiveness. According to the 2018 DMA Response Rate Report, direct mail got an impressive 9% (house lists) and 5% (prospect lists). Direct mail response rates are higher than all forms of digital advertising – combined.

We don't only provide bulk mailing services. At Center City Print, we help with every step of the process, with a mailing list. Send postcards, flyers, brochures, and more to targeted addresses. Attract new leads or send mail to previous customers who are engaged with your brand.

Every Door Direct Mail (EDDM)

What is Every Door Direct Mail marketing?

Every Door Direct Mail® (EDDM®) is an affordable targeted advertising technique that lets you map your marketing mail audience by age, income, or household size2. You can choose the ZIP Code™ and carrier route that will target your best possible customers—current and future.

Here are four specific advantages to Every Door Direct Mail Marketing EDDM®:

  1. Reach: The ability to select specific zip codes and carrier routes allows you to target geographically, ensuring your message reaches consumers in areas most relevant to your business. You can search for your consumer market by narrowing down your audience by income, age, and location. Additional demographic filters exist if you have a slightly more targeted methodology, such as home ownership, gender, and household or family size. Ideally, your reach targets only customers in your ideal market, which will lead to a promising amount of conversions to your business.
  2. Flexibility: This measures the size flexibility of your message. What kind of impact do you want your message to leave? The variety of postcard sizes available provides flexibility with your messaging. The smaller formats allow for a punchy and compelling copy while larger formats offer room to tell the full story of your product or service.
  3. Value: Without an EDDM® campaign, large mailing requires a postage permit as expensive as $400 per permit. With an EDDM® campaign provided by Center City Print, we waive that fee. USPS provides a simplified address system so that you never have to pay the price of a mailing list. With no mailing permits or lists to buy and with postage at only 15.7 cents, the program is highly economical. We even offer reduced postage rates for non-profit organizations.
  4. Effective: Print complements repetitive digital cycles and actually strengthens the overall effectiveness of a digital campaign. Providing something you can handle and read, grabs the consumer before they decide their next interaction with your business. By adding a high-impact, personalized tactile touch, you create true multi-channel campaigns, which increases exposure, response, and prospect engagement. Print is a low-cost addition to your marketing campaign that could be the tipping point to beginning a lasting consumer to business relationship.
