Creating A Successful Mailshot Campaign

Using a mailshot to write to your customers and prospects is an effective way to promote your business, product, service, sale or event.

For years marketers have seen direct mail as an outdated channel for contacting consumers, but it is still one of the best options to send promotions and offers directly into the hands of consumers.

What is a mailshot?

A mailshot is a term used for a direct marketing communication method. Businesses contact a large group of customers and prospects via post.

Typical mail shot formats are letters and postcards.

Tips When Sending A Mailshot Campaign

Here are The Direct Mail Company’s 5 tips when creating a successful mailshot campaign:

  1. Eye-Catching Headings – Start the mailshot with eye-catching headings which grab the recipient’s attention from the start
  2. Interesting Content – Don’t waste your audience’s time by sending a confusing marketing message. If someone is willing to give you a chance by reading your material, make sure the content is as interesting as possible
  3. Clear Call To Action – Make sure it is clear to the reader what you would like them to do; then they are more likely to take action
  4. Include Incentives – Including special offers and vouchers in the campaign which are only available through the mailshot, will entice the reader to take action
  5. Include Contact Details – Although it sounds obvious, remember to include all your contact details so the recipient knows where they can contact you. If applicable to your business, you would like to include: a website, telephone number, business address, email address and social media profiles.
