Your list in direct mail advertising postcards

While these attention getting techniques are important in direct mail advertising post cards, the biggest factor in building response is always your mailing list.

And the best list is always your own customer list if you have one.

When you mail your postcard by itself, it's called a solo mailing. You can use a mailing house to affix your mailing labels and do the mail drop. If you are mailing enough post cards, you will qualify for bulk mailing rates.

Your post card can even be used as an insert into your local newspaper or one of the coupon mailings to your area.

Setting your goals and recording your results are among the most important parts of using a direct mail advertising postcard to promote your business.
