The Rule of 7
A very important rule in marketing and advertising that is utilized more often than you may realize is the rule of 7. The main point of this rule is repetition. The rule states:
The two most important words in that sentence you should be paying attention to are “at” and “least”, specifically in that order. Please take a moment to remember the Farmers insurance commercials. Now, please hum the jingle from the end of those commercials. The reason you are able to do this so easily, besides it being catchy, is because you’ve heard it multiple times. Now imagine having that power for your marketing campaign.

Offer Them Something Tangible
Send your customers direct mailers with compelling offers frequently so they have a reason to hold on to it. Direct mailers with coupons, gift cards, or interactive elements can win prospects and keep existing customers coming back again and again. Great pieces can end up on your customer’s fridge which serves as a constant reminder of your product or service.
Email Your Customers the Same Offers
Repetition is key to the rule of 7. By sending email that matches your direct mail piece to your customer base or targeted area, you can further remind them about your special offer and you also give them another channel to respond to. Learn more
