Why would you send postcards?

Postcards are a highly advantageous marketing technique for you. Before we cover some of the varied applications for them, we wanted to explain the benefits for bulk mailing postcards.

Ease to produce

Postcards are generally pretty small, and so it’s not too costly in terms of time to think up and create the designs for this type of mail.

Cost effective

Because they are small, you’ll also find that postcards aren’t costly in terms of money either.

Flexible

Their cost effective nature and limited space for content mean that you can run multiple and varied bulk mail postcard campaigns throughout the year.

Targeted

Postcards are a great way to ensure that you target your audience properly.

Trackable ROI

You can include things such as personalised URLs in your postcards, allowing you to easily track conversion rates.

Effective ROI

Postcards also have a very high level of conversion, as they are easy to read, and normally eye-catching (if designed and planned well!).

Applications for the bulk mailing of postcards

Here are some of the applications that you can use when bulk mailing postcards.

Thank you cards

No matter your business or industry, you can also make use of thank you postcards. Perhaps you want to thank your customers for a recent donation or purchase, or maybe just for people a loyal member. A personalised ‘thank you’ can go a long way.

Special offers

Everyone loves a special offer or discount, and a postcard is a great way to hook a customer in. This is because they’ll normally see the offer immediately on the postcard, without first having to unwrap an envelope.

Announcements

The bulk mailing of postcards is a great way of making a big announcement on a large scale. Perhaps you have new products or a new event happening soon?
