Mailbox Monday: Using direct mail to drive traffic to a website or app

Hello and welcome to Mailbox Monday. My name is Brianna, I’m the marketing strategist here at One Step Services. Today I’m going to be looking at a piece of direct mail that I received that shows how you can use direct mail to drive traffic to your website or app.

So NextDoor is an app that people in the same neighborhood can join and then they can talk to each other about whats going on in the neighborhood. I received this envelope and the thing that stuck out to me was this cute little doodle. It made it personable and caught my attention.

The piece itself came from someone specific. It was her first and last name and the street she lived on. A lot of times we talk about personalizing the piece to the person that you are sending to, which is extremely important. But you can also personalize who it is coming from, and the fact that it came from a specific person as opposed to just the generic NextDoor App, I thought was really effective and helped build that trust factor that’s so important in marketing.

Something else about this piece is the code. The code allows you to track the effectiveness of a specific piece. So if I go to NextDoor and I join and I use this code, they are going to know that I came from that specific mailing. It just helps them to track the response to the mailings that they are sending out. And of course just some verbiage here, very simple, very straightforward that explains what the app is and encourages me to join.

So this is a great example of a way that you can combine your digital and your direct mail and you can use your direct mail to drive traffic. This is particularly effective if you don’t have email addresses of people. It’s also effective because the mailbox is less crowded than the inbox. So if you are really looking to grab people’s attention, you actually have a much better chance of doing that with direct mail than you do with an email. Those are some tips for you. Hopefully you can incorporate them into your next direct mail piece. Have a great day!
