By the numbers: some facts and figures about door drop distribution

When deciding on the right marketing campaign for you and your business, there are all kinds of conflicting information floating about. You can find as many opinions on the effectiveness of a given marketing model as you can for any other approach, and door drop distribution is no different.

Here at Smart Distribution Solutions, we prefer to deal in facts. As a successful direct marketing business, we are well aware of the efficacy of door drop distribution. However, we also understand that our personal experience could be seen as anecdotal evidence, and will almost certainly be biased towards our favoured distribution medium.

To widen our data, we approached the Direct Marketing Association (DMA), a leading trade organisation for direct marketing professionals like us. They regularly survey both members and their clients to get hard data on current direct marketing trends. Their support and experience in the field is invaluable for any assessment of the benefits of door drop distribution.

Few marketing methods work well in isolation. Door drop distribution is most effective when part of a broader marketing strategy. It complements everything from press advertisements to online and social media pay-per-click ads. It is useful at the start of a campaign to sow the seeds of interest among your target audience and at the end of a campaign to reinforce the message received through other media with a strong call to action.
