According to the United States Postal Service, 98% of people bring their mail in each and every day and 77% sort through it immediately. When considering using post cards for advertising, what are some of the main benefits for a small business?

Post Cards & Advertising

For a small business, it is important to keep control of an advertising budget. While you may not have the resources to compete with a larger company, a smaller company does have the advantage of being able to execute more unique advertising campaigns. Post cards are more attractive than reading a pamphlet, and post cards don’t require your potential customers to even open anything. You can keep your message short and concise, while also maintaining a potential customer’s attention. The uniqueness of receiving the post card will stick out in your customer’s mind the next time they need to enlist in your services, and it is a cheaper and less intrusive than cold calling or television ads.

Postcards Build Bonds

People hate receiving junk mail, but even if it’s from a business, most people will take the time to read a postcard. Since it is from a small business, sending postcards provides for a more intimate advertising platform, and is a great way to build a relationship with a potential client. Since many people will leave a postcard on a fridge, this also helps to provide additional advertising to family members and friends of your original recipient.

Postcards Provide Lower Advertising Costs

Buying ad space in a magazine or airtime on a radio show can cost a small fortune, but postcards are a direct and cheaper way to reach your targeted audience. Just because the price is less, it doesn’t mean a post card advertising campaign is any less effective. Post cards also allow you to test a variety of call to actions, and you are able to monitor performance better for your small business.
