Did you know: On average, 1.75+ million people move every month, and during that move, the average consumer spends over $9,000. The response rate for new movers is also higher than the average consumer, averaging 0.5 – 1.5%.
This is a huge audience with tremendous purchasing power! What type of purchases are we talking about exactly? The list is long! Movers typically make 70+ brand decisions during a move, buying everything from large appliances and furniture to cleaning supplies, paint and restaurant delivery. They’re also making long-term brand decisions like communications and healthcare providers, preferred retailers, grocery stores and more.
If new mover marketing isn’t part of your overall marketing strategy, you could be missing out on a fantastic opportunity to not only drive new business but create loyal customers.
The Fastest & Most Accurate Mover Marketing Program
Speed is more important than ever in capitalizing on this highly valuable consumer segment. In the past two years, the cycle from listing to contract in selling a home has shrunk from 55-70 days in 2019 to 25 days in 2020. By April 2021, nearly half (47%) of all homes were on the market less than 7 days.
Our Quick Response Postcard, the fastest mover marketing program available, enables you to reach movers quickly, whether your goal is to target them at listing, at closing or beyond. Our mover information is available within 24 hours of a trigger being activated, which means we have the freshest data possible to build your integrated campaign. We can help you reach these consumers first, during a critical, high-spend, loyalty-starting buying phase.
A Flexible Approach Offering Multiple Touch Points
With speed comes flexibility, giving you the ability to target movers around a variety of purchasing decisions as needs change pre-move, during a move, and post-move.
