The realm of direct mail marketing can be a difficult one to traverse, and some small companies might find it difficult to make their way through it alone. That is why two or more companies sometimes form partnerships with each other to create a marketing campaign that advertises products that each company makes.
Although this marketing tactic may sound odd, there are many advantages to partnering up with one or more companies in a combined direct mail marketing campaign.
It’s normally cheaper
Some small companies that are just starting out or don’t have large amounts of revenue coming in, might find it difficult to get into the “big leagues” of advertising and afford a direct mail marketing campaign. This is a big reason why one or more small companies pool their resources together to form a mail marketing campaign.
Each company’s products complement each other
One great way for companies to boost each other’s sales is to advertise similar products together. This has been done to great effect through the years. One popular example is super markets advertising a sale on hot dogs at the same time they are having a sale on Ketchup, or advertising a sale on socks when having a shoe sale. Potential customers that need one product have a good chance to associate that need with another product and might purchase both. This will boost the revenues of both companies.
Both companies can work together to create a stronger marketing strategy
This is a strategy that many companies have used in the past. When two companies come together to market one or more products, they bring their marketing departments together to create a more powerful marketing strategy than each one could do alone.
This works with a direct mail marketing campaign as well. Two or more companies can get together and figure out a powerful marketing campaign to use through a direct mail marketing service. This is a great strategy to use when companies are small and don’t have very large marketing departments. It can also be a powerful strategy when two companies are marketing complementing products but have different ways of promoting them. When combined they can create a powerful cross-promotional strategy.
Provides opportunity for a more flexible marketing strategy
Going in with one or more companies in a direct mail marketing strategy can give companies more flexible options in their marketing campaigns. For example, the companies could provide a discount to customers if they buy one product from each company. Special discounts can be provided by each company to buy the other’s products. Both companies can pool resources and hold a contest for customers. There are many more options open to companies that work together in a marketing campaign.
These are just a few ways combining forces with one or more companies can benefit you on your direct mail endeavors. As the old adage says, two heads are better than one. The old saying holds true for advertising as well.
