6 Tips For An Effective Postcard Marketing Campaign

Here are our six tips for an effective postcard marketing campaign:

  • Cleanse Your Data – Ensure the data for your campaign is the best it can be; this is crucial to the success of your campaign. Cleansing your data and filtering out poor data will maximise your ROI.
  • Make An Impression – An effective postcard must be attractive, memorable and compelling. Using high-quality images and graphics that will catch your customer’s eye.
  • Emphasise The Benefits Of Your Products or Services – Don’t confuse your audience with technical jargon they need to research. Instead, focus on the benefits they get if they try out your product or service.
  • Make The Offer Clear – Could you ensure the message is clear, simple and to the point? Don’t fill your postcard with unnecessary images and content that confuse your audience. The purpose of the postcard is to be short and snappy. Ensure the offer is clear and the recipients know what to do.
  •  Create a Powerful Call-to-Action – After letting the recipients know about the offer, you need to tell them what they need to do to take advantage of it. Creating a powerful call-to-action will ensure your recipients take you up on your offer.
  • Measure Results –  After your postcard campaign has ended, measuring your results is always good practice. Analysing your results shows how close you were to the original aims and if you achieved a positive ROI. Measuring your results will highlight what worked well and what may need changing for the next campaign.
