Types of Direct Mail

SmartEtailing offers several categories of direct mail, each specifically designed to achieve success with their specific goal.

Promotional Mailers

When you have a local or national sale event happening in your store we recommend that you do what the nation’s best retailers do - send direct mail. For nationwide manufacturer promotions, SmartEtailing partners with brands to develop localized mailers that leverage national branding. For retailers with local sales, SmartEtailing can design unique local sale themes that have the same level of quality and appeal as a national campaign.

Loyalty Mailers

Customers shop your local competition and online stores for convenience, variety, and bargains. You need to actively compete for a larger share of your customers' spending if you want to grow your business. That is why we developed Loyalty Mailers. This program encourages increased purchasing from your best customers by putting compelling offers with limited redemption windows into their hands at critical times of the year, giving them a reason to shop at your business. These mailers are not tied to a sale event. These mailers feature detachable coupon cards and are sent to your very best customers as a reward for loyalty.

More About Direct Mail

Efficiency Advantage

You benefit from volume pricing because your mailing will print alongside hundreds of thousands from other dealers. Your mailing will be customized for your business and we'll ship at the right time for your promotion.

Measurable Results

We integrate coupons into each mailing so you can easily and effectively measure your return on investment. Most campaigns feature barcode coupons to streamline your sales process. The more coupons customers bring in, the better the campaign.

Availability & Ordering

Mailers are available three times a year and are purchased on a per-promotion basis with no annual commitments. Mailers are available to ship anywhere within the 48 Contiguous United States.

Customizable

For each promotion, we design pre-formatted options to compliment graphics for national campaigns. If you would like to change lifestyle images, accent colors or text, we are happy to accommodate your requests at no additional charge. We also offer completely custom designed sale themes as well. Click here to view direct mail design samples.
