Letterbox Marketing Is Still A Great Option For Advertising
Letterbox Marketing is still one of the most effective ways to advertise in 2021 and according to The Catalogue Association, 90% of consumers value addressed and non-addressed mail as a way of receiving advertising.
In this blog post, we look at how to make your leaflet or flyer get the attention of your target audience.
1. Know Your Audience
If you’re about to advertise, then you probably have a fair understanding of what your target audience looks like. Make sure you get to know them well before starting on your brochure. Are they male/female? How old are they? Do they live in Auckland or all over NZ? Keep digging and get specific, this will help with your design and targeting of your advertising material. Are you still not 100% sure what you’re audience looks like or loves? Then why not try a survey amongst friends and family, or within a facebook group in your industry, we like Mailchimp’s survey feature.
Nothing spells unprofessional or “shoddy” like a badly designed advertising piece. Ensure your advertising is fitting to your work or brand by hiring a graphic designer that can match what you’re trying to sell to your audience.

3. A Stand Out Headline
This is your chance to grab attention and stand out from the crowd – make it bold and worth a second look. What is your target audience going to get excited over?
4. Call To Action
- A no-obligation offer – remove or reduce the risk. This gives people the confidence to buy, in other words “try us, you’ll like us”.
- Tell the customer what they need to do. “Go online to redeem 20% off”, “Send in this coupon to get your sample”, “Call now for a free no obligation quote”.
- Encourage them to respond straight away, i.e. “This deal is only available while stocks last”.
5. Be Memorable
6. Find a Reputable Printer & Distributor
Once the designer has finalised your letterbox marketing campaign, it’s time to print your advertising piece and send to a distribution company for delivery. The complete process can be fairly daunting as requires a great deal of time and effort finding the right people to complete all the tasks involved. If you would prefer an easy solution that doesn’t involve having to find a designer, printer and distributor, here at PrintSaver we have the complete package ready and waiting for you at extremely competitive prices.
