“The question isn’t “why?…” the real question is “how?!”

As the vacation season peaks, the cavalcade of Summer savings deals rolls on. Your focus now must shift to gearing up for back-to-school and Holiday campaigns. Your goal is to figure out how to create effective advertising packages that utilize direct-mail, thereby shifting to a more balanced mix between online and offline channels. By including print advertising, you can create a more intimate dialogue with your prospects, thus creating lasting, engaged customer relationships.

Engaging customers to form long-term relationships is the most effective way of ensuring repeat business. Unlike television, and Internet ads, print ads stay in the consumers’ hand, providing your potential customers a means of taking advantage of your special offer when they are ready. One of the most effective forms of print advertising is direct-mail folded mailers.
