Boost your Direct Mail and Print Marketing with Social Media

Boost Your Print Marketing with Social Media

Why do we need to combine print and digital marketing?
Let’s say you distribute 1,000 Direct Mail Flyers around your town, village and local area for an event your attending. 5,000 people see your flyers, which leads to 600 people booking and buying tickets for your event. Maybe some of those people who saw your flyers were interested, but weren’t available that day or maybe they didn’t have the budget for tickets that month. These people could have been within your target audience group and they may be interested in attending future events. What if you had a chance to build a relationship with those people so you could communicate with them directly in the future about upcoming events? If your flyers and direct mail efforts provide an engaging message that directs your target audience to interact with you on your social media platforms, you can secure a relationship with those potential and future customers, and interact with them in a meaningful way that will increase the likelihood of them spending money to attend an event in the future. Thus ensuring that your direct mail campaign not only provides immediate value, but also contributes value to future promotions.

Social media engagement
Most active consumers use some form of social media. Social media provides a venue for people to hang out, get to know each other, create and share content about their interests, talk about their favorite products and causes… it’s a constant information buzz. These networks deliver the opportunity for consumers to talk about your products and services amongst themselves, but it’s also an opportunity for you to jump into the conversation, shape the message, and participate in two-way communication with people who can become beacons for your brand online – spreading the word to their own micro networks. Give them content and motivate them to talk to you and about you!

Spread the word!
There’s so much noise online, that it can be hard to break through the clutter. Print is a great way to build your digital media programs because it gives you the chance to direct someone straight to your social environment without any distractions along the way. You might have noticed roadside banners including Twitter #tags (hash tags) or links to a Facebook page as a way to sign up for a contest. Business cards usually include a company’s web site, LinkedIn url, Twitter handle and Facebook link. Actively directing people straight to your social media platforms to speak to you. You have to promote your social media activities in order to make them a success.
