3 Easy Ways to Personalize Your Direct Mail

The following are three areas you can personalize your direct mail to easily connect with your audience:

  • Copy: Personalize the message to the individual by using their name. Use any other information you have available to deepen that connection. More copy is not necessarily good. Make sure to balance your message and your pitch with a consideration of their time. 
  • Images: Set the mood of your content with a visual that will draw in your reader. Images will need to appeal to each individual in your mailing. 
  • Offer: Use your data to understand your audience’s needs, then supply that need. The more aligned the offer is to the audience, the more traction it will get. 

Final Thoughts on Personalization

Create a positive message that connects to individuals instead of trying to engage everyone. Make sure to keep the message accurate, or you will turn off your customer. Private information is awkward, insensitive, and possibly a privacy breach - avoid that.
