Tips on how to make direct mail work for you with Ryan Cote


• Everyone says direct mail is dead and that email is dead. It’s not dead. It’s just changing.

• The challenge of a multi-faceted approach is you have to coordinate all different teams.
• I get really excited when we get a new client is using multiple strategies. Typically the results are better for the client so it’s a win-win.
• A great way to start with direct mail is postcards.  And then if you add the URL redirects on to them, then you’re building up a nice warm list.
• Multiple touch points are key. I can’t think of any reason not to follow up with them with some sort of physical mail. Something they can actually hold and feel, like your marketing message in their hand.
