What is Direct Mail Automation Software?

Direct mail automation software, like PostGrid, helps businesses run their direct mail marketing campaigns just like email marketing campaigns.

With such software, you can create, print, and mail all of your mail pieces and personalize them for your customers merely from a single dashboard.
It helps you eliminate all the hassle of running back and forth to the print labs and post office.

You can also track all of your direct campaigns with PostGrid and get complete analytical reports of all current campaign launches.

Yet, you might ask.

Why Direct Mail?

In a world where everything is online, why should you consider direct mail marketing? Isn’t it something people used to do in the ’70s?

Well, direct mail is one of the oldest yet most effective ways of marketing. Its response rate is way higher than any other form of marketing, viz., social media marketing, email marketing, PPC ads, etc.

Traditional Marketing

It’s when you create your direct mail sample in-house or have it done by a designer, get it printed either in-house — keeping all the resources in stock — or through a printing lab, and finally mail all of the direct mail in bulk.

Here’s why you should opt out of this process:

Costs a Fortune

  • The process is expensive as it demands a lot of work, effort, and resources.
  • Without any proper software in place, it’s hard to target the audience. And no doubt, sending mail pieces to everyone is just a waste of money and time.
  • PostGrid enables business owners to carry out their direct mail marketing cost-effectively.

Involves Tedious Tasks

  • When you create your direct mail manually, it takes a lot of time to get things done.
  • You need to have tons of hours at hand, resources, and staff for this process to run smoothly and timely.
  • PostGrid enables you to complete all of the tasks involved in direct mail marketing merely from your dashboard.

Out of reach

  • Since the traditional way of direct mail marketing requires a huge investment of time, money, and resources, most businesses refuse to add it to their marketing strategies.
  • Mostly, print labs only accept orders and give good deals to companies with a mailing list of around 100,000 people. That’s something small business owners can’t afford. 
  • PostGrid has no minimum policy. It means that you can get one or one million direct mail pieces printed and still get great discounts.
