Score Big with Tailgaters at Home with Direct Mail

Football season is here! While it looks a little different this year, there is still a big opportunity to get your message in front of football fans with direct mail.
Most fans are recreating the tailgate experience at home or “homegating”: the game on the big screen, appetizers, snacks, chips and dip, meat on the grill, cold beverages in the cooler—all the things you’d expect to find at a traditional tailgate. This provides restaurants, grocery stores, pizza places and retailers opportunity to capture these consumers as they stock up for the big game each week.
Engage and activate these football fanatics using direct mail, a media channel that more than 80% of consumers check and read daily. Make sure they know about your promotion!
