Some businesses benefit from certain printed advertising materials than others. For instance, everyone needs business cards but only those in the food business can benefit from printing dine in or takeout menus. If you are in the landscaping or lawn care business, you can print business cards, notepads, postcards, flyers, and brochures. Postcard advertising in particular becomes a lot easier through Every Door Direct Mail or EDDM mailing.
How EDDM Mailing Can Benefit Your Business
First, how does EDDM work? If you have a new landscaping or lawn care business and you want to tell people within the vicinity that you are offering such services, you need to find a way to reach out to them. Here is how EDDM mailing works:
- You get in touch with an online printing company that offers EDDM mailing services. There are print shops that offer print only, EDDM only, or direct mail services if you are ordering postcards.
- Decide on the number of postcards that you want printed. Pay the fee for the entire postcards printing package.
- For EDDM postcards, the print shop partners with the USPS so that your postcards will be mailed out to a group of addresses. You need to decide whether you want to send the postcards to every house in a zip code. Or, you can narrow down your audience to a certain demographic. If you want to send the postcards only to households in a certain income bracket or those with three family members and up, you can do that. But instead of putting together your own mailing list, the USPS provides the mailing list for you.
- You only need to pay an extra charge for the postage of each postcard. The print shop will take care of the bundling of the postcards for you, as well as the USPS paperwork requirements. After all that is done, they will also be the ones to deliver the postcards to the nearest post office for mailbox distribution.
As you can see, EDDM mailing makes it easy for you to reach your target market. You only need to make sure that the design and message of the postcard is effective. Since you’re in the landscaping or lawn care business, use earth colors or green hues. Better yet, use your business logo as basis for the design of the postcard. Include a call-to-action and with EDDM mailing, people inquiring about your landscaping or lawn care business should soar in no time.
