B2C Direct Mail campaigns added to online marketing is the smart way to market. Physical Direct Mail marketing is now the “new” way to reach customers. As a B2C marketer, you have both opportunities and challenges in the “New Normal” of Amazon, Google, Yelp, and other online spaces. Yet one goal remains: making sure you remain relevant and visible in the minds of your customers. As one of our boutique retail clients notes, local mailings can drive real foot traffic better than most anything else.
