How to leverage direct mail

How to leverage direct mail

As a general or specialty home improvement business, you need to know who your ideal clients are and their habits. Remodelers and roofers can focus on owners of older residences that need fixing and updates, while general contractors can market to new or recent homebuyers. No matter what kind of homeowner you target, for the most part they all look at their mail. They watch out for regular items they receive such as bills and magazines. That’s why TheHomeMag gets read.

What’s the smartest way for you to reach homeowners? Send your message right to their mailbox. You can do a mass mailing yourself or go with a company that will do all the work for you. 

Do It Yourself Direct Mail

To do it yourself, you’ll need to develop criteria to fit your target market. Procure mailing lists from a broker that fit your markets by zip codes or usethe United States Postal Service Every Door Direct Mail service to blanket mail your piece to neighborhoods by zip code.
