Why should I use Direct Mail?
Radio, television, and print advertising are all good marketing choices, but Direct Mail allows you to target your audience more specifically. The best solution is to create synergy in all of your communications by combining your Direct Mail with advertisements through other media.

How long does it take to create a Direct Mail piece?
On pbSmartMarketer, it takes just minutes to create your own Direct Mail piece. After that, the overall production/fulfillment process usually takes about five business days. That means your customers can be receiving your Direct Mail just 7 to 10 days from the time you created it.

Which mailing list should I use?
You can select your own list (which you can upload to the site) or create a new one. Your list can be organized by ZIP Code, customer profiles or other information. It's your choice. The most important factor is to use the most up-to-date list.

What is a Customer Feedback page or p-URL?
The purpose of a Customer Feedback Page, or personalized-URL, is to obtain information about your customers and prospects via a webpage. This kind of web page may also feature an offer to enable you to gain even more information about your customer's preferences and habits. Response information from the Customer Feedback pages are emailed to you, but can also be viewed in the reporting section of My Workspace on the site.

When is the best time to send out Direct Mail?
Planning on creating events and offers based on seasonal sales, holidays or customer behavior? Ideally, you'll want the recipients to have your mail piece in-hand at least one week before your event/sale. Remember too, that it may take several business days to reach your prospects and customers, so plan accordingly.

In what ways can I cultivate stronger customer relationships?
Direct marketing enables you to create repeat business and build strong customer relationships. Unlike mass media, direct mail allows you to customize and personalize your marketing materials. So your customers feel like your direct mail was truly created for them.


With pbSmartMarketer, all it takes is a few minutes of your time to customize and send a direct mail piece. And because you already have a customer list, you can simply upload it when prompted, or select it from your saved lists.


Your first step, however, is to choose from hundreds of marketing templates the one design that best reflects your business. Next, customize your direct mail based on your specific messaging.

For example, you can use direct mail to:

1. Invite customers to an exclusive event

2. Publicize special prices or promotions

3. Tell customers about your rewards for purchases

4. Promote new products and services

5. Announce an upcoming sale

6. Ask customers to tell a friend about your business and receive a special gift


Your next step is to make your mailing even more effective by setting up a personalized Customer Feedback page. This gives customers a chance to tell you more about themselves and what they're interested in, so you can close the deal. You just ask the questions and we do the rest.


To increase your response rate, once you've chosen a Customer Feedback page, you can include it in a follow up email. Simply click the 'Create an Email Project' link in My Workspace to get started.


Keep your business top of mind with your customers. First, let them know you're thinking of them. Second, cultivate those relationships. You can do that here.
