It still works. It always did.
Just ask some of the small business owners in your own community.
And, it’s been around a long time.
As a matter of fact, it’s been around for so long, you may think that it’s not even worth discussing.
But, you’d be wrong.
Now, I’m sure that you’re aware that the internet has impacted the way small business owners get the word out about their businesses in a huge way. But, there’s one marketing technique that’s been proven to work, time and time again.
If you’ve been thinking about becoming a franchise owner, and you like B2B, I encourage you to read about the franchise opportunity that I’m about to tell you about, because it’s one that specializes in DM.
First Things First
I think that I’ve teased you long enough.
I know that you’re probably climbing the walls by now…waiting to find out what the marketing technique is-and the franchise opportunity that I’m referring to. So, without further ado…
That’s right; Direct Mail.
It still works because it’s super-targeted, and super-easy to track.
From their franchise website:
“Our targeted high income and high market value homeowner responds to our upscale direct mail piece because it is professionally packaged, personally addressed and features the products & services they spend significantly on.”
Let’s focus on one word; “Significantly.”
In 2002, City Publications, a Direct Mail franchisor, started franchising their concept.
They made two crucial decisions at launch:
- They decided that their franchisees would only target small business owners who sold the finest luxury products and services.
- They would only mail their marketing publication to active, affluent homeowners with money to spend
