EDDM For Jewelers
What is EDDM (Every Door Direct Mail®) for Jewelers?
Every Door Direct Mail® (EDDM®) is a service offered by the USPS that provides an affordable, targeted advertising technique to help businesses reach potential customers. With EDDM®, mailers can choose to target specific routes within a zip code. You pick the neighborhood you want to target, and a USPS carrier delivers your mail piece to every address on their route while delivering the day’s mail. This allows you to reach your desired demographic or area.
EDDM® can be a very effective means of advertising. With EDDM® postage being so low, it allows you to promote your business with a direct mail piece in a very cost-effective way. Most often, the cost to print and mail, including EDDM® postage, can be less per piece than the cost of a first-class stamp.
Promote Your Jewelry Store with EDDM®
EDDM® service is perfect for promoting your jewelry business within your community. Whether you’re having a sale, opening a new location, or promoting a new collection, EDDM® can help you send a promotional mail piece to the right customers. The EDDM® Online Tool makes it easy to find the perfect prospects for your jewelry business. The tool allows you to choose zip codes and neighborhoods—even filter by age, income, or household size using U.S. Census data through the USPS. This way, you are targeting the people most likely to shop in your jewelry store.
EDDM® direct mail is perfect for a jeweler who wants to promote a trunk show to nearby neighborhoods. With Every Door Direct Mail®, EVERY mailbox on the route gets a mailpiece delivered. So no mail list is needed. This is one less thing that is needed to promote your jewelry business, saving you time and money.
What size mailpiece can I send with Every Door Direct Mail®?
Given that the size requirements for an EDDM® mailer are the same as that for a flat, jewelers can send out an oversized postcard and gain greater visibility. The mailpiece must be greater than either 6 1/8” high or 10.5” long on one side, with maximum dimensions of 15” long or 12” high.
According to a study conducted by the Direct Marketing Association, large postcards received a 4.25% response rate. Sending out an oversized postcard will make your mail piece really stand out in a pile of mail. So you can “go big” with Every Door Direct Mail® and get your jewelry business noticed.
