A profitable direct mail campaign is comprised of three major factors such as your copy, the quality of your leads, and your offer. Neglect any one of these factors and you will negatively effect the results of your campaign.
Top Three Components of a successful direct mail campaign
Lead Generation: Based on the best consumer demographics, spending, and interest data models
Arguably the most important aspect of any successful direct mail campaign is the quality of the lead list that you’re targeting. Sending direct mail hearing aid direct mail mailers to people who don’t want or need Heading Aids is a sure fire way of wasting your marketing dollars.
Ensuring your lead list is not only accurate, but up to date is critical. LettrLabs has the ability to gather custom lead lists based on consumer spending habits, demographic data, as well as interest models. We aggregate the best consumer data available to create a custom list based on exactly your needs.
In this example we could narrow down the search to seniors over the age of 70 who own their own home and have purchased TV guide in the six months. Depending on how well you know your clients we can also create a lookalike audience, which will review your current clients and allow us to search for future prospects who are extremely similar in the demographic, interest, and spending habits. As a result you’ll create a never ending list of leads you can continually re-target with success
Write Copy that Connects with Your Prospects
Writing copy that connects with your prospects is another extremely important factor that will help your direct mail get noticed, read, and acted on. Gone are the days of sleazy sales pitches, but rather your prospects are looking for an expert to help guide them in this extremely critical purchasing decision.
Coming off as the authority that will help them decide what hearing aid is right for them will help make sure they feel comfortable reaching out and acting on your offer.
Create a Strong Offer that they can’t refuse
Putting together a compelling offer is the third critical piece to a profitable hearing aid direct mail campaign. By structuring the offer in a way where its time sensitive and compelling from a value proposition perspective will promote your direct mail campaign and ensure more leads act on your offer.
If you can afford it a 20% or higher discount will help even the most frugal prospects reach out to learn more. Additionally, outside of a discount you can also include valuable benefits like discounted service, free fitting consultations, and other benefits to enhance your offers value.
How to Stand out
After you’ve crafted your message, lead list, and offer it’s now important to focus on how can you physically make your heading aid direct mail campaign stand out. There are two critical ways to set you apart from the junk mail your prospects receive on a daily basis.
