1. Write a letter
These days, a personable, hand-addressed letter is marketing gold. Yes, it’s old school, and you don’t see this often, which is one reason why you should do it. Identify and mail to 5 prospects per day.
2. Company newsletter
Your ability to retain customers has the most significant impact on growing sales. An informative company newsletter is one of the best ways to make that happen. It also provides critical top of mind awareness for your brand. Both print and email should be utilized.
3. Website resources and a blog
The first place prospects visit to form an opinion of your company. Their perception is your reality and having up to date and relevant, content gives you a competitive advantage over those that do not. Make sure to share your blog out on social media and push it out via email.
4. Social media
Very simpleâ€”customers now expect this. It’s no longer enough for people to trust you. These days, they also need to like you. Social media can help facilitate this.
5. Direct mail
Create a direct mail campaign and distribute it to a targeted list. Use a list source so that you’re reaching out beyond just your in-house lists. I’ve seen clients using solutions such as Mind Fire and Direct Mail 2.0 (and others) for some pretty slick and effective marketing.
