Identifying the Client’s Need
The client was looking to increase their new member enrollment and grow their market share.
We mailed to five zip codes surrounding their location – for a total of 71,000 households. The piece (SMP) highlighted their differentiators – open 24 hours, extensive equipment, free training and $10 per month, no commitment membership.
The initial mailing produced over 800 new members. The client appreciated the value of the SMP (Smart Market Postcard), because they can hit 3 times as many homes compared to solo mail.
Reaching the right audience using the mailbox drives sales results!!
You expect these kinds of numbers from a new location, but we were VERY pleased for an established gym like this one to recruit this many members!”
