While it seems everyone is focusing on digital ways to reach their audience, one shall not forget about the older marketing tactics.

After all, it depends on your industry and your target audience. Maybe your true client doesnt spend his time on websites full of ads and hates the constant spam, but treasures the real mail?

This post is about a marketing company that is not all about digital. They found their niche in direct marketing efforts and it works amazing!

Background and challenges

Agent Z Marketing provides customized, easy-to-use marketing tools that help promote, grow and sustain businesses with personalized postcard mailing packages. While everyone is focusing on digital ways to reach their audience, sending a physical postcard can now make you stand out from the crowd! And that’s “Agent Z Marketing” agency’s way of reaching people!

With modern, fresh, and eye-catching design, these postcards help businesses reach new customers effectively and affordably.

The challenge is that even though it’s affordable and highly effective many people find it hard to plan and distribute their marketing budget. Personal service providers and restaurant owners are solely relying on word of mouth and good referrals to fuel their business, so they are not sure how much budget they can dedicate to their marketing activities and what will be the return. Is it worth it?

We wanted to help service providers understand the value of a customer and also the amount they should be spending on marketing, annually. Many don’t understand that to fuel your business, you need to invest.

Well, using such a calculator it would be quite hard to get negative results, dont you think? People who didn’t have the knowledge of how much investment would be good or enough to reach results now do. And people who were doubting whether your tool or services ar worth a try also dont anymore. The benefits are clear without questionable promises or the push to try out. Simple, yet brilliant.

The feedback has been that it is eye-opening to them about their business .
