If the unopened envelope is tossed in the trash or the postcard is never turned over, then your advertising direct mail is a failure. Imagine pulling an advertising flyer from your mailbox. How do you respond to it? Do different pieces get different levels of attention? Why? What catches your attention?
What makes you cast it aside? Knowing and understanding your own habits and those of the people around you can help give you a clear picture of what you must achieve with your own marketing flyer, and, perhaps more importantly, how to approach the envelope that holds it. Images, color, different types of text, and even peek-through windows can help to ensure that your potential customer base actually sees what you have to offer.
