Does Direct Mail Advertising Get Results?

6/20/2023 Does Direct Mail Advertising Get Results?

Just because the age of the Internet is thriving doesn’t mean direct mail marketing is not. Regardless, the question still remains, “does direct mail marketing actually get results?” The short answer to this question is YES! But the professionals at RSVP aren’t stopping there. We’re showing you exactly how we intricately prepare and then flawlessly execute direct mail marketing to meet YOUR business goals and increase your ROI. Take a closer look at how we can turn your business into a thriving empire, all with direct mail marketing.

The Who, What, When, Where, & Why

Congratulations, you’ve decided to move forward with a direct mail marketing campaign to promote your business and increase ROI. We couldn’t be happier you’re ready to take this next step and put your products and services at the forefront of homeowners’ attention.

Before we begin, there are a few questions you should ask yourself:

  • What are my business objectives?
  • Who is my demographic?
  • Where is my target audience located?
  • Why do I need a marketing strategy?
  • When am I looking to launch my direct mail campaign?

Thankfully, you don’t have to answer these questions alone. With the help of the experienced marketing team at RSVP, we’re able to walk you through each step with incredible detail to ensure your business receives the attention it deserves and you’re pleased with the results.

Business Objectives

We get it. Your business is your baby—it’s the biggest investment you’ve probably ever made, and the overall goal is to have it succeed. But, only 51% of companies attempt to develop aligned goals, and among those companies, only 6% regularly revisit them. Whether you’re offering house cleaning services, landscape maintenance, plumbing repairs, or delicious eats in your restaurant, having a clear picture of your business objectives can help craft a functional and responsive advertising campaign.

When you work with RSVP Advertising, we’ll sit down and discuss your objectives in-depth. Are you aiming to have more than 100 new customers by the end of Q3? Would you like to increase sales by 20% this year? Whatever your overall goals may be, we know exactly how to get you there—with direct mail marketing. To ensure your campaign is aligning with your business objectives, we use proprietary software to track your leads and make an educated decision on how to move forward with future advertisements—bringing you more clients/customers and a higher ROI year after year.

Target Market

Your target market is the demographic you’re trying to reach with your product or service. Knowing your target market is one of the most crucial aspects of owning a business and advertising for it. You’ll want to identify key factors like:

  • Age
  • Gender
  • Income
  • Lifestyle
  • Geographic location

By performing a target market analysis, you can assess how your product or service fits into a specific market and where it will gain the most traction with customers. At RSVP, we target mass affluent homeowners in your area, meaning they spend 3.2 times more than the average household, and hold 60% of their total earned income. With this strategy, we’re able to put your business in the hands of those who can not only afford it but are willing to pay premium prices.

Geographic Location

At the end of the day, local businesses depend on local customers, which is why your geographic location and your target market work hand-in-hand. When you take the time to understand your geographic location, you can gain better insight into what consumers are searching for and what services they need. One area of your community may be in desperate need of more advanced medical services, while another may be Googling “best pizza place near me.” In knowing this information, you gain a more in-depth knowledge of how your business can serve the local community.

RSVP is proud to offer both local and national advertising services to businesses just like yours! We work with a variety of different industries, including dining and entertainment, home services, home improvement, recreation, healthcare, and more. If you’re interested in learning how you can target tourists and residents alike in your geographic location with direct mail marketing, contact us today at (800) 360-7787.

Marketing Strategies

Personally, the design stage of advertising is one of our favorites. This is where your products and services are highlighted and where your personality shines. Get creative with your messaging, use vibrant colors to draw attention, and don’t forget to have a direct and clear call to action (CTA) for increased response rates.

Our team offers turnkey products designed to highlight your company’s services, products, and unbeatable deals. To learn more about our proven solutions, contact our team of marketing experts today.


Whether you’ve launched marketing campaigns in the past or are new to the entire experience, you may be surprised to learn there is a right time and a wrong time to advertise specific services. For example, you don’t want to promote snow removal services in the middle of July or landscape maintenance during a midwest winter. Just as there’s a right time and place for every advertisement, there are also specific moments when bolstering sales and promotions will benefit your overall customer base and ROI. Consider implementing the following into your next direct mail marketing campaign based on the current season:
