Postcard Marketing for Local Businesses

Are online ads doing less and less for you?

Online ads are easy to ignore or annoying. Neither of those things is good for your business.

Separate yourself from your competitors with personalized, handwritten postcards that your customers can hold in their hands and have higher conversion rates.

You can find new customers, offer deals to existing customers, warm up leads, or send postcards to your website visitors with automatic, personalized cards.

What is postcard marketing?

Postcard marketing is modernized and targeted direct mail 📬

You can reach a targeted audience with promotions, announcements, and offers using personalized postcards.

It might seem old-fashioned but people still prefer physical mail: according to the USPS, 86% of people take the time to go through all their mail1.

Here’s why you want to give potential customers something they can really hold on to: only 44% could recall a brand after seeing an online ad but 75% could recall a brand after receiving direct mail.

And direct mail offers convert 10% to 20% more too2.

Here’s a postcard message personalized with the recipient’s name (Hey Marcus) and city (Durham homeowners). The QR code is customizable and will notify you when it’s scanned.
Send gift cards that can’t be redeemed unless the recipient takes an action – and only pay for gift cards if they get redeemed.

Direct mail + data + automation = MAGIC 🪄

Modern postcard marketing combines an old school method with today’s technology

Use your audience data to send the right offer to your most reliable customers, or ask for reviews and referrals.

You can personalize messages with their name or other data to let them know it’s not one-size-fits-all direct mail.

You can send gift cards3 – and require that recipients watch a video or make an appointment before they can cash it in.

You can make drip campaigns with postcards and automate thank you notes, birthday wishes, houseiversaries, send postcards to your website visitors with direct mail retargeting – and even send postcards from your CRM.

Find new customers near you 🗺️

Search around an address to find new customers

You have the option to buy leads and filter them with detailed demographics so you can find new customers easily and cheaply (as little as $0.03/lead).

Buy leads in your city, or in a specific zip code or around your address to reach the people mostly likely to become new customers.

The possibilities are endless. Imagine:

Find businesses local to you, or search in new cities or zip codes to increase the size of your market.
