Key Benefits of Every Door Direct Mail (EDDM)
- Small Business Price
With EDDM you can mail your postcards and flyers for just 16˘. Compare that to traditional direct mailer campaigns that cost an average of 75˘ per piece for the smallest and most basic mailer promotion.
- Bigger EDDM Sizes
The amazingly low price of 16˘ per piece is applied to ANY size of mailer. As long as you keep within the postal size guidelines, you can send 8.5x11 postcards and larger for big impact postcards that stand-out in your customers mailbox.
- No Postage Permit Needed
Normally when sending direct mail campaigns, you would need an active postal permit which can cost as much as $450 just to open an account. With EDDM, you don't need one. USPS provides a special USPS/EDDM Endicia permit that you can add directly to your mailer designs. This special permit also ensures that your EDDM mailers are mailed separately from the mass of "circulars" that people are not always fond of.
- No Mailing List Needed
Instead of printing names and addresses, EDDM utilizes a "simplified addressing" format that targets local postal customers in a radius of up to 5 miles. And because you no longer need to print names and addresses, you can forget all the typical ink-jet printing and labeling hassles.
- EDDM Perfectly Works for your Business
Direct mail is statistically one of the most effective forms of advertising for any business. It delivers a higher return-on-investment than any other medium. Every dollar spent on mailers returns an average of $12.57 in sales! And with 3-out-of-4 people reading direct mail, you are also guaranteed to get seen by the majority of people you send your mailers to.
- EDDM Benefits: Postage Savings
The actual postage savings with EDDM marketing is about 3 cents over postcard first class rate, and about 7 cents over standard letter rate. The nice thing about EDDM postcards is that you can mail a much larger piece which will grab attention in the mail box. You will want to quote the entire campaign with EDDM mailpieces and then quote the entire campaign with a targeted list to get an exact price comparison of the difference in the costs of the complete campaign.
