Introduction

The current generation echoes an increased demand for marketing to cater to the constant change in preferences for various goods and services. In such a competitive environment, consumers will most definitely choose only those products they deem satisfactory and mostly that depends on every company's person marketing strategy. Therefore, a company should focus on improving its current marketing system to incorporate more far reaching methods that attract the maximum number of customers.

In the absence of media and technology, people relied more on word of mouth and marketing mail to attract people. The concepts of marketing visible to the world today were caused by the Industrial Revolution in the 18th and 19th Century. However, during and after the Industrial Revolution companies marketing management focused on reducing costs only. From the start of the 20th Century to the period following the second World War communications, advertising and branding began to come to the forefront. From 1960s onwards the system completely restructured and the increased competitive streak led to millions of dollars being spent on marketing strategies. But, it has been noticed that the medieval age methods yet continue to remain the most effective and cost efficient.

In order to effectively address customers, every company first needs a Customer Database. Certain criteria need to keep in mind to carry out marketing mail conveniently. The customer database must not only contain home address details, but also the latest email addresses and phone numbers as well. This way risk of advertisement can be minimized, and a company can ensure that a particular customer can be reached.

Some customers don't bother reading letters mailed in envelopes and just throw them in the trash. Instead they go through their emails in detail and also surf the net opening their eyes to various advertisements. On the other hand some customers do the exact opposite, spending hours on their coffee while reading their home marketing mail. Therefore, there's marketing mail package fitting every customers' needs. The problem lies in establishing the most suited customized method applicable to each customer.

Tips

If a company focuses on marketing mail in the form of sending out letters, then the envelope sizes should be large as those gain more attention in comparison to smaller ones. Moreover, the letters should be short, concise and to the point. No customer would like to waste an hour of their precious time reading something that they might not render useful in the first place.

Usually, when a company sends out letters, that's the first time customers hear of their company. The letters must not seem suspicious and must provide certified company and market details and avoid dramatic references and sales. Emails should be registered with certified online software to reduce risk of viruses as that is the main reason why people don't open unwarranted mails.

Companies should advertise their services on popular and recognized websites which people are witnessed to visit. Marketing mail advertising on unpopular and useless websites is a waste of marketing team's time and valuable funds.
