Why do some of the mailed cards arrive with smudges? The United State Postal Service uses machinery during the process of preparing your cards for delivery. If the local USPS sorting machines are not calibrated properly, they can cause rubbing on the actual card. This creates friction and may leave a smudge, burn or other marks. These smudges are NOT a result of the ink not drying completely. Regular maintenance is key to minimizing this problem but is the responsibility of each local Post Office. We use a coating on the postcard to help reduce, if not eliminate, the marks. The design elements of your card will help too. For example, use large illustrations or photos on the left side of the cards. If a smudge occurs, it will be on an image and will not distort text, phone numbers, logos, etc.
Is it important to use a Coupon or Call to Action on Lead Generation marketing? YES. Your goal is to drive NEW customers to your business. They probably have someone they do business with currently and a discount or special offer is designed to entice them to try your company. You don't have to give your service or product away but make sure you would think your offer is a good "deal" if you received it in your home. Don't forget to offer your current customers special offers from time to time. This is a great way to show appreciation for their loyalty.
