Direct Mail: The Home Service Hero

‐ April 3, 2023

Home service businesses can often have a difficult time standing out in the highly competitive market. It’s like trying to find a needle in a haystack, except the needle is your business and the haystack is the endless sea of competitors. However, by using direct mail to target neighborhoods that you are already working in, you can increase your business’s visibility and attract new customers. It’s like finding a needle in a stack of needles, but at least now the needle has a neon sign on it.

Here are some ways that home service businesses can use direct mail to target neighborhoods they are already working in and gain new customers:

Identify Target Neighborhoods

The first step in using direct mail to target neighborhoods that the business is already working in is to identify the areas you want to target. Look for neighborhoods that are in close proximity to the locations you are currently serving. Consider factors such as household income, demographics, and home ownership to identify the best neighborhoods for your services.

Create a Compelling Offer

Once you have identified your target neighborhoods, the next step is to create a compelling offer that will entice potential customers to try your services. This could be a discount on their next service, a free consultation, or a special package deal.

When thinking of an offer to put on your marketing postcard, it needs to be something that stands out from the competition and makes potential customers excited to try your services. It’s like going to a carnival and choosing which game to play – you want to choose the game that looks the most fun and offers the best prize. In this case, your services are the game and your offer is the prize.

Design Your Direct Mail Piece

The design of your direct mail piece is critical to its success. Make sure your piece is eye-catching and professional-looking, with a clear call to action that encourages recipients to take action. Use high-quality images and graphics that showcase your services, and include your logo and contact information prominently.

Choose a Reliable Mailing Service

When it comes to direct mail, choosing the right mailing service is essential. Look for a reliable and experienced direct mail marketing company, like Wilson Print Marketing, to help you target the right neighborhoods and ensure that your pieces are delivered on time. Our company can help your business with a mailing list, graphic design, printing your mailers, and mailing them out for you. We are truly a one-stop shop and can save you time.

Track Your Results

Finally, it is important to track your results to determine the success of your direct mail campaign. Keep track of how many responses you receive, how many new customers you gain, and how much revenue is generated from your campaign. This will help you fine-tune your strategy and make adjustments for future campaigns. It’s like playing a game of darts blindfolded – you might hit the target, but you’ll never know unless you take off the blindfold and check your aim.

    My business is located in Wisconsin and I have been a bit frustrated with my local design/print options. I was searching on youtube and came found the Wilson Print Marketing youtube page and I was impressed. I gave them a call and they assisted me in designing a remodeling dream book that I could send to interior designers and general contractors. I am so happy I reached out. The design is AMAZING and the print quality is top of the line. I am so impressed and they will be my go to company for all of my design/print needs.

    I just had a book of poems printed by Wilson Printing and they did more then a fine job! They did it fast and competitively prices as well. Their service is friendly and truly unbeatable. The Owner Mark Hale is top notch also-He listens to what you need and want-Is not robotic but genuinely interested in you and your requirements. I highly recommend this company.

    Wow, how refreshing. I saw the YouTube they put out on brochures and liked the information so well I looked up their phone number. I talked to Kelsi and she was so helpful and professional. Real professional company that I plan to align with.

    We recently were looking for an alternative for our printing needs. The staff at Wilson Printing helped me from design concept, pricing to fit our budget, difficultly with addresses, and etc. I could go on and on. Every question I had was researched and answered. They will walk you through the process and help you determine exactly what you need and work within your budget. You can not go wrong with them. It is family owned and operated and their customer service is 10 stars not just 5!!
