While some Americans may already be tired of the massive amount of political ad campaigns on their televisions, they should expect another influx soon – through their mailboxes. An article on National Public Radio’s website said that direct mail is one of the few ways that voters can be reached and shown hard evidence about the campaign.
Costas Panagopoulos, who teaches political science at Fordham University in New York, told NPR that direct mail is a great way to reach a targeted group of voters. There is a large amount of demographic and psycho-graphic data available that can be used to a campaign’s advantage, he said.
According to a recent blogpost on Business 2 Community, print marketing campaigns are anything but forgotten. In fact, they should be brought back with full vigor. One of the main reasons is that it’s a physical form of advertising. Customers will actually have a tangible form of marketing that will be more likely to be thoroughly read.
“There are tons of advertisements being displayed on the internet in this day and age, so much so that consumers are almost never noticing online ads anymore,” the article said. “Your best move is to back up online marketing campaigns with a print version. For your new product release, don’t just announce it online. Place posters in public malls or streets, mail postcards with a discount, place ads in newspapers and magazines.”
Companies and organizations that are looking to improve their marketing campaigns would be well-advised to invest in a paper folding machine. With that, consistent and professional pamphlets can be created, ideal for being sent through the mail system.
To that same extent, lamination equipment will protect any posters that need to be put on display along with individual documents and papers. In order for print marketing campaigns to be truly successful, businesses need to ensure that they are putting forth a quality product that will garner consumers’ attention.
