How to Keep Campaign Fatigue at Bay
You may have found the holy grail of a direct mail campaign for your business. The copy, design, timing, and list are all fine-tuned, and you continue to see great responses. Unfortunately, it doesn’t matter how great your direct mail campaign may be; the results you see will eventually become less and less successful. Each campaign is unique; you can’t know for sure when or why your campaign starts to slump, but it happens to every single one.
You want to get the most mileage out of a campaign, but when is it time to put it to pasture? At Mudlick Mail, we have a lot of experience with the life spans of campaigns. Many times, direct mail campaigns slow down because their graphics are outdated or irrelevant, or your recipients have seen your mail so often they just throw them away. Whatever the reason may be, there are telltale signs that it’s time to change things up, and we know how to spot them. In today’s blog, we want to share some signs of campaign exhaustion and what we can do to refresh your campaign to keep it compelling for your recipients.
How to Sense a Campaign is Wearing Out Its Welcome
As we said, all campaigns behave a bit differently. They are completely unique to the businesses that use them. Sometimes, we’ll see a campaign degrade so slowly it’s barely noticeable. Other times, it will feel like the campaign jumped off a cliff. Either way, you don’t want to be taken by surprise. Staying ahead of the curve is key. There is only one way to remain sensitive to the health of a campaign, and that is to continuously monitor the response you get to your mail. However, that isn’t enough.
In addition to keeping a constant finger on the pulse of your campaign, you need to be able to understand what you’re sensing and what to do about it. That is where our highly trained team shines particularly brightly. We know how to monitor the big picture and easily act as your strategists, determining that key instant when you’re no longer dealing with a living campaign and depending on a zombie campaign instead. You can’t afford anything less than the best in the business, and that is us. We love what we do!
How to Be Prepared to Shake Things Up
Running a business is exhausting. It can feel like it takes all of your energy just to achieve one successful campaign. But did you know that even as one campaign rolls out, you should be planning the next? Yes, it is true. If this thought blows a fuse for you, that is why we are here. We know how to get a snowball rolling for your business and ensure it always has another snow-laden hill to roll down. You can focus on every other part of running your business, of which there are many (we are sure!).
We stay primed by assuming that a campaign package is going to start providing fewer responses at every turn. While one campaign is flying, we’ll be testing new campaigns to determine what sort of changes will be most effective when the time comes to revive the current one. We can start small by adjusting formatting and images while keeping your content the same, saving everyone time by preventing the need for new copy. We do this because we understand just how important direct mail can be to the success of your business, and there is nothing we love more than being dependable allies for hard-working business owners.
