What Exactly is the Impact Postcard?

The Impact Postcard is much like other postcards you have received in the mail from various companies, but ours comes with a distinct advantage that is a big benefit to your business—a substantial cost savings. In many cases our prices can be 1/3 lower than the competition because the Impact Postcard is shipped on the outside of our direct mail package with a shared mail rate.

Another advantage we provide your business is our ability to find your best customers. Many direct mail companies are only able to provide lists in a radius around your business location. Why settle for a random list when we can offer you a campaign profile that takes into account so much more than geography? We use predictive data from many sources and can combine it with your customer data (if available) to create a highly customized profile that targets the homes most likely to do business with you. Learn more about our precision targeting options on our Data Analysis & Targeting page.  This is another way we provide you cost savings on your campaigns, as well as deliver a solid return on your advertising investment.
