You'll love this one. I wish I could remember were I found it to give the person credit....
They created and launched a direct mail program for clients.
Using a "piggy-back" strategy. The first postcard...a beautiful 6x9 postcard that targeted runners...was sent to a list of approximately 1,000 road, track and cross-country runners in one state in the Northeast. The client received a 1.1% response rate…about average.
Now, Here's the piggyback part... sent next was the exact same postcard, crumpled up and flattened. We stuffed them in envelopes with a simple sticky note that said, "Please don't throw this out again.
We're trying to save you up to 20% on your running shoes, apparel and accessories. Yours truly..."
Would you believe they got a 4.2% return! Well, they did. They also got a couple of customers who wondered how we knew that they'd thrown it out...no kidding.
Piggy back direct mail works, plus it rides along free.
Budget: $50 - $759 weekly
