How to Directly Target
One of the biggest values of a BNP direct mail campaign is our ability to target audiences based on highly refined data. Our team is able to collect valuable information and parse it out according to your business objectives. It took 50,000 years to produce the amount of data that was created in 2017 alone. That wealth of information allows us to personalize direct mail with specific names, content, images, and exclusive offers depending on who the person is, what they do, etc. And the types of information we use to determine who to send direct mail to and increase your return is vast.
- Geographic—Target specific towns, cities, or radii around locations.
- Demographic—Target based on age, gender, income, households with children, renters, homeowners, etc.
- Behavioral—Are your customers price-conscious, early-adopters, philanthropic in nature?
- Psychographic—Target certain lifestyles, attitudes, personality traits, and more.
