Calculating Your Return

one half of a percentInvite Them InNot only do we sell direct mail marketing, we also use it.  Why?  Because it works.  Figuring out how well it works can sometimes be a challenge.  Make sure you review the whole picture and don’t be blinded by what may seem like a light return.

We conducted a prospecting campaign targeting churches in our area.  We sent two postcards over a 3 week period to the same recipients.

The graphics we used for our 6 X 9 postcards reflected multiple generations and cultures, and conveyed a very simple message.  Use direct mail to invite your neighborhood to worship in your church.

The mailing brought 3 new clients or .56% of our universe; which seems like a very low return!  That’s because it’s only part of the equation.

The campaign generated $4,450 in new business within 30 days of the first mailing.  The retail charges associated with mailing both cards, including postage is $1,530 which equates to a $2,920 return.  We anticipate the new clients will generate an additional $9,000 in revenue over the course of the first year.

Direct mail marketing works – let it work for your business too!
