All business owners appreciate their clients and know that their success relies on them, but do clients know that? Companies usually send out holiday cards in December and January which makes it tricky to stand out from other mail. Enter Valentine’s day! Show your clients some L-O-V-E this February by sending them cute Valentine postcards.
Sending postcards to your customers is a very cost-effective marketing strategy for both small and large businesses. Sending postcards offers benefits such as reinforcing your call-to-action, increasing customer engagement and showing appreciation. According to DMA, there is a 5.1% response rate when it comes to sending direct mail. This rate is the highest reported since 2003 when the Response Rate Report was released. Therefore, sending postcards is an excellent marketing strategy.
When designing Valentine postcards, you need to keep in mind a few things such as your target audience, the card size, what you want to achieve, and so on. The colour, design elements and style are also very important factors to consider when designing a postcard.
