Creating marketing materials that are brand new and unique may feel overwhelming or even impossible to achieve. Not everyone is creative, but with the right tools, anyone can achieve their goals. The same goes for having a strong voice on paper. Getting a message across on paper can be a lot more challenging than speaking to someone in person. Whenever making a direct mail fundraising appeal, organizations need to have a powerful and persuasive message to effectively connect to contributors. With the right guidance, your written voice can impart the knowledge and experience your organization wants to portray.

The most successful marketing materials feature an original appearance with a powerful and persuasive message as the primary highlight. Valtim has services to help with all marketing needs, including the creative appearance and the message aspect of the project.

Direct Mail Copywrite

Personalized Feel

One of the elements of a successful direct mail copywrite is ensuring the marketing materials feel personalized. No one appreciates receiving the same materials in the mail repeatedly. But when a new piece arrives, it will grab a person’s attention. There are many ways to achieve a customized feel. Some options include integrating the customer’s name, gender, or title. These small elements allow the customer to feel like the mail was made especially for them because the mail doesn’t feel like it was a mass-produced product.

Unique Design

A unique design will allow an organization’s message to get across more effectively. By carefully selecting the color, font, and images for your newsletter or postcard you are creating something unique and new which allows the customer to feel more drawn to the information within. Carefully selecting the format of your direct mail is important too because you want the message to appear clear and not cluttered. The right format will allow you to select from a variety of colors and fonts that will complement each other. Your audience will appreciate reading something organized and attractive. Valtim’s services will help you with the design decisions to ensure nothing is left out of your project.

Targeted Content

Depending on the customer base you want to achieve, you can select targeted content. The best way to grow your organization is not to treat everyone the same. Different people want different products. Understanding your customer demographic and their likes and dislikes will allow you to grow the company more efficiently. By utilizing targeted content in your marketing materials, you can achieve your growth goals much easier and quicker. Not opting for targeting content can be a costly waste of money and resources which Valtim would like to help you avoid. But you will need to first understand your demographic to use targeted content to your advantage. After you know your audience, Valtim will help guide you on how to create your marketing materials the most effectively.
