Firstly, It all begins with a targeted and up-to-date mailing list. If your piece is stellar, it won’t matter if it is not getting in front of the right people. Additionally, you don’t want to waste postage on pieces that will not get in the hands of your targeted audience, right? With our listserv vendors, we guarantee a relevant and refreshed targeted mailing list for your direct mail campaign.

Call to Action

Always drive your audience to take action. Whether it’s getting them to your website or calling a sales representative, if you don’t ask them to do anything they won’t. If you include an offer in your direct mail piece—depending on the industry in which you’re in—your call-to-action will simply be a sales conversion.


Personalized direct mail pieces are all the rage! According to Canon Solutions, adding a person’s name and full color in the direct mail can increase response by as much as 135%. Canon also reports that adding a person’s name, full color and more sophisticated database information can increase the response rate by up to 500% vs not doing any of these things. Wow! Make your targeted audience feel special. make them feel like they are your only customer. Look at the numbers, it truly makes the world of difference.
