Leaflet distribution and ROI

door drop deliveryFor anyone considering leaflet distribution anywhere around the M25, probably the first question on your mind, before you even begin to think about design, is ‘how many new customers will I get?’ Return of investment (ROI), whether you live in Streatham, Norwood, Croydon  Dulwich or Dartford, it isn’t as straightforward nowadays as it used to be so this is not an easy question to answer.

The reason for this is that since the digital age boomed in, most people picking up a door drop leaflet from their front door mat will almost certainly go to your website. They will do this before they even think of picking up the phone and calling you.

Before the digital age, anyone interested in your service would simply pick up the phone. This meant you could sell your service simply by the tone of your voice and choosing engaging words. For better or for worse, those days have gone and a large chunk of your success rests on your website.

So, yes you can make an excellent return on leaflet distribution, providing you check the company out and they are reliable. However, bear in mind you also need to have a professional website in place. Your website will compete with others; if your nearest competitor has a crisp, clear and attractive site that is easily navigable, he is going to snap up the lion’s share. Unfortunately, no matter how well you design the leaflets for your door to door marketing campaign, this is still likely to be the case.

You can still get calls from leaflet distribution even if you don’t yet have a website and you could add a small line onto your leaflet to make readers aware. Nowadays it is imperative you get your site written professionally and properly optimised for the search engines (SEO).

The downside is that this is unlikely to get results for a while. For one thing your keywords are likely to take up to 3 months before Google takes notice, trusts you and your page ranking begins to climb. At the same time social media should be entering the game so that people begin to comment and refer you to others. This activity again can take a few months to build, is largely dependent on adding in regular interlinked blogs and articles, yet can bring astonishing results.

Leaflet distribution is such a thriving, successful way to increase profits that it is worth considering it in the digital marketing mix as just outlined. It’s simple, uncomplicated and often under-rated. Combine it with simple SEO and profits can boom.

The leaflet distribution industry is a large, thriving, and profitable industry. It requires little capital investment and even if you cannot afford a website initially, you soon will and can grow and grow your business.

Tips on brochure design

leaflet distributionAs a leaflet delivery company we occasionally get asked to deliver other items such as magazines and brochures. For some reason this seems to mainly occur in Croydon, Streatham and Norwood; I have no idea why as we deliver to Dartford, Dulwich, Catford and all around the M25. Anyway, some of the features of design are similar in a brochure to those for a leaflet. However, although you naturally have more space and layout in a brochure, content and appeal factors will be different.

Highest potential financial outcome

Think hard about which target of readers are likely to generate the most revenue for your business. It’s no point delivering a brochure or a door to door distribution leaflet that’s designed for the high net worth income bracket to an inner city estate. If your brochure is about 5* luxury travel, it makes sense to deliver it to the more exclusive properties. When you have decided this factor then make sure the content – or at least 75% of it – is designed for these people.

Company Personality

For a brochure this is even more important to get right than in your door drop flyer. Is your company image consistent throughout your marketing material? Do you know what your corporate image is and does this reflect what you offer and at what standard? It’s no good stating you offer a state of the art interior design service with top of the range brand names if you are appealing to people who are looking for a simple cut price decorating job.

Audience reaction

The one thing that remains consistent with almost every marketing campaign you undertake is audience reaction. ‘What is the response you want to get from your target audience?’ Check and check again that you are targeting the right audience. Do you want these people to visit a website, pick up the phone, respond to an offer in a limited time or enter a competition?

Collecting Information

Start making a note of useful factors about your business that you can weave into the copy. How well can you describe your business in 50-100 words? Can you succinctly express the nature of your product or service so that readers will easily understand, without complex jargon? What about hours of business or when your premises are open to visitors? Don’t forget your fax number if you have one and your website address. If you are a limited company, you should include your registered address. Do you have a good quality set of images and logo? What about a neat ‘how to get to us’ description? If your brochure is has the space, include 1 or 2 testimonials or recent news.

When you have collated your brochure material, a draft mock up will help you to see where something doesn’t look so good and you can make alterations at this stage before giving final approval to go to print.

Hope this helps everyone, anyone have any more tips?

Do leaflet delivery campaigns work?

Letterbox DeliveryLet’s face it, we’re in the digital works best era and anything that doesn’t embrace online must be a waste of time. True or false, or is there a half way? I think there is and door to door leafleting or flyer distribution services are more popular than ever in today’s crazy digital-fits-all world.

Why? Well, every day of my working life I’m getting calls from business owners and marketing managers asking me about the mechanics of a successful leaflet distribution campaign. Yes, using good old door drop marketing.

It isn’t that they’ve given up on going digital or that they don’t believe an online presence works; they all have websites and most are engaging in regular online activity. Yet time and again, the message they give me is that it’s the digital ‘overload’ that’s the problem.

We’re all getting swamped by the deluge of digital advertising and the point about leaflet delivery is that you can’t just delete the thing. You have to pick up a flyer or pamphlet, and you have to do something with it, even if it is a walk to the bin. Few of us pick stuff up from the doormat without at least a quick glance through, in case we miss something important or bin good news.

This distribution business needs good planning; you can’t just go round chucking leaflets through doors with a vague, foggy idea of what you’re hoping to achieve. Some things to think about are:

  • your business aims and objectives
  • your focus market, where they live and in what type of home
  • a planned strategy to fit the above

Leaflet distribution is booming and judging by the constant return of customers, it works big time. Most businesses report a gain in sales.

Okay, now back to the digital. Whatever you do, make sure your flyer design matches the design on your website, including your logo. Choose a good quality printer to reflect your standard. Far too many flyers I see have been hastily put together with scant regard for any artwork or design. That’s 50% of your potential customers lost.

When it comes to contact details, you’d be surprised at the number of leaflets I see going out for large scale letterbox distribution that have no mention of a website. This is the first thing the vast majority of us look for. Young or old, it’s the way consumers now decide. No website and that’s another big portion of your leaflet distribution binned. A website nowadays denotes professional; it means easy contact, testimonials, reviews, comments, images, prices and a list of services.

So you see, it’s not about dismissing digital, but it’s certainly not about dismissing leafleting. The two go hand in hand, door to door. A good leaflet or flyer leads to reading, going to website, making contact…and hey, a good sale.
