  5. 5. creating spheres of influence® direct mail influence Direct mail is still the most highly targeted method of delivering your message to the right person at the right time. But, direct mail is far more than ink on paper with a postage stamp – it is a science. At JMMC we understand the science of direct mail and have the will do just that – create no response. The key to having a good experience. We know what works and just as importantly - what response is to have a great “relevant” offer, and the offer should does not. To create and produce an influential direct mail campaign promise emotional and physical benefits, the more personal the it is important to understand the value of a well crafted headline, the better. We have seen response increase by as much as 50% just by use of effective subheads, persuasive copy, compelling graphics, a changing the offer. In addition it is important to limit the time of the call to action and the almighty offer. offer, if you give your audience “forever” to respond to your offer they just might take you up on that and never respond. Other important factors to consider when formulating a direct mail campaign is timing, is your product or service seasonal? It is best At JMMC we understand how to create an effective direct mail to mail just before and during the times of highest demand. For campaign. Just as importantly we know the difference between a example, health club memberships peak in January and just before promotion which generates short term sales spikes and branding summer. Church attendance is highest during the fall, Christmas and which produces long term sales advantages and how the two work Easter. The demand for home insulation products is highest in the most effectively together. south during June, July and August. Direct mail is about creating a response and to create a response you need to offer something. A good offer gives the recipient a reason to respond, and then goes on to tell them clearly what the next step should be. A direct mail campaign with no response-generating offer I have had the pleasure of working with John Manlove Marketing & Communication on a number of occasions including work on Project Stars. I can recommend them without reservation as our experiences have been nothing but outstanding. Project Stars is a broad-based community effort to enhance our historic infrastructure with goals including a stronger sense of community among residents and business, and a stronger public identity outside our community. The branding, imaging and production of materials created by JMMC have been of exceptional quality and unique creativity. Sylvia R. Garcia Commissioner, Harris County Precinct Two | 281.487.6767
