It’s important not to just create one flyer and sit back waiting for the phone to ring. Run several flyers in different areas with different offers to see which ones are increasing profitability to your business and which aren’t.
Many factors can effect whether your advertising is working including the time of year, demand for your product or service and also your flyer design.
To measure the effectiveness of your letterbox marketing, you need to monitor your sales and keep track of new customers, requests for information, phone inquiries and even web-site traffic. Here are some ideas that will help you not only determine the effectiveness of your flyers but will also give you some new marketing ideas.
Keep in mind that you can’t measure success if you don’t know what you’re trying to achieve. Make sure you have clear advertising goals. You might want to boost business overall, but your objective should be more specific. For instance you might want to increase sales of new products such as digital video recorders or a new service such as GPS or video. Another goal might be to build awareness of your company. At certain times of the year you might want to stimulate overall sales or expand your business in a particular market such as home integration.
By combining the way you measure your ads with your goals, you’ll know when your ad campaign is working.
