Extracting A Postcard’s Potential
Postcards are still part of our modern system of communicating. That fact we cannot deny.
Postcard’s old charisma is preserved. It can still uplift the mood and brighten everybody’s day. No question about that, right? The effect is flagrant that even though there are already lots of communication channels that a person can choose, a lot stick to postcards.
Postcards these days come in two forms – e-postcards and the printed postcards. The first one is the modern counterpart of the printed postcards. The former is fast and easy to process. With just a few clicks of the mouse, a beautiful e-postcard can already be had. With regards to the latter, it takes a few days or weeks depending on the printing job. Nonetheless, this type is more preferred by a lot of people. Why is that so? - Because nothing beats a postcard that is personally delivered. A postcard that can be touched and held. You do not simply save it in your computer but save it where you like it to be saved.
The ask now is – how do you extract postcard’s potentials?
Well, there are a lot of considerations. I will give you few of the significant ones. Here we go..
1. Make a Mailing List. Be sure that those included in the list are interested in postcards. They may be your loved ones. Or if you are an entrepreneur, they must be interested in your offer – be it a product or a service.
2. Create postcards in a ‘friendly manner’. What do I mean by this? The message, design must be friendly so as not to sound ‘puffing’. You can step in your recipients’ shoes or try to ask a third person so as to have an idea whether the tone is already friendly or not.
3. Use of Direct Sales Pitch is rubbish. Postcard services are not primarily used to do direct marketing. Here, it is made indirectly. Simple information like phone numbers, addresses and the likes are given in order to guide recipients in regard to their future queries.
4. Do not beat around the bush. Little space cannot accommodate everything you want to say. Be sure that your message is ‘ready to read’. Therefore, be brief and easy to read.
Postcards must appear pleasant top the senses. They are not made to annoy or piss anybody.
They are there to comfort, care, advice, or impliedly tap another’s shoulder or whisper words of inspiration. Good luck in your postcard preferences!
