Benefits of a Specialized Direct Mail Services Partner 

We know the ins and outs of how to produce quality, highly-effective direct mail for banks, lending
institutions, mortgage brokers and mortgage loan originators. Our marketing campaigns are optimized,
consistent and affordable – producing measurable results. Here are a few of the benefits of partnering
with a tried-and-true direct marketing partner:

  • Personalized – Get noticed with personalized content and images that resonate with direct mail recipients. Variable data printing, also known as VDP, lets you personalize each and every mailpiece – all in a single print run, without slowing down. You can tailor your postcards or mortgage mailers to new homebuyers, renters and loan prospects – and build an instant relationship by addressing them by name and including details that are applicable to them, such as an exclusive interest rate or type of loan.
  • Multichannel – A direct marketing campaign doesn’t have to be one and done with a single touchpoint. Extend your reach online by delivering targeted social media ads before, during and after your mailing (yes, we said “before”). Or utilize QR codes or PURLs (personalized URLs) to drive traffic to a dedicated landing page or webpage with a special offer or promotion.
  • Trackable – Gain insight and transparency into all aspects of your direct response mailing campaigns. There are no unknowns when you have real-time tracking… down to the individual mailpiece. The reporting is even synced with Google Maps so you see the street-level view of the delivery location.
  • Insightful – With full visibility, your mortgage company can prepare for incoming calls. Be fully staffed and prepared for an influx of calls, online lead generation and loan inquiries.
  • Cost-Effective – A direct mail partner like Splash has the resources you need in one convenient location, from in-house copywriting and design to secure print and mail – without needing multiple partners or your own internal resources. You’ll also maintain cashflow and capital outlay with house stock and envelopes, which are billed as used. Plus, you’ll get the best postage rates and savings with presort automated rates.
