Direct mail and EDDM are great because they are multi-sensory! Direct mail is one of the only ways to put a physical marketing or advertising piece into the hands of your prrospects cost effectively. Everyone still has to check their physical mail every day, read the incoming mail, and decide if it is junk mail or not. This is not true of email or social media, as these advertising mediums can easily be ignored. If you ignore the mail, it becomes a physical obstacle that your recipient has no choice but to review.

Yes, you can split orders off 500 or more into seperate designs. For instance, you can have 250 of one postcard design, and 250 of another postcard design for the 500 postcard rate.

Every Door Direct Mail (aka EDDM) is a service of the United States Postal Service that helps you reach all households and business within a certain neighborhood, city, zip code or postal route. DOPE Marketing is happy to design, print and mail your EDDM campaigns, and we’ve done it more than almost anyone.
We do not ship to Canadian residential homes on your behalf either through EDDM or direct mail. If you order a shipment of postcards without addresses that you will be distributing by hand, your shipping charge to Canada will be calculated at checkout. You will be personally responsible for all import taxes and customs negotiations. We reccomend that you find a Canadian supplier so that you can avoid import taxes.
Most USPS customer’s adresses that are available to you are also available to your competitors. Your competitors can approach all of DOPE Marketing’s competitors in the direct mail and EDDM markets and send their mail that way, as it is a competitive industry. The best way to secure lead generation in a new market is to beat your competitors to market. So, send now, and send often.
Door hangers require more man-power and expense to distribute than dirrect mail, so the initial investment is higher which can reduce your ROI. However, we believe that when used together, door hangers and direct mail or EDDM make your new lead generation campaign unignorable and ROI for both increases.
If you order a shipment of postcards without addresses that you will be distributing by hand, your shipping charge will be calculated at checkout. If DOPE Marketing is mailing your postcards on your behalf with EDDM or direct mail, there is no shipping charge to your location, but there is a standard postal fee for each piece put into the mail.
How long does it take for DOPE Marketing to get back to me after I fill out an information request or submit an order online?
Your personal or company phone number is not owned or managed by DOPE Marketing and is incompatible with the DOPE 360 call tracking dashboard. You can use your own phone number, but your phone calls will not be tracked in your DOPE 360 dashboard. We rent tracking numbers and encourage our clients to use different phone numbers for diferent campaigns. For instance, a landscaping company might have one tracking phone numnber on a direct mail postcard campaign and a diffferent tracking number on a yard sign or EDDM campaign. Then, as the calls come in and populate your DOPE 360 dashboard, the results of each of your marketing campaigns can be compared directly to eachother for ROI (return on investment) calculations.
The best time of year to send postcards has more to do with your business and your market than the dates on the calendar. When is your busy season and how long does it take your company to close a new lead? If it is in October and it takes you 2 weeks to close a lead, you should finish your campaign before mid-September.
