In one of our recent blogs, we discussed Every Door Direct Mail®, or EDDM®, and its potential benefits for your business or organization. This program offered by the United States Postal Service is a great resource for businesses looking to increase their visibility, especially within local communities. One of the most valuable elements EDDM® brings to the direct mail arena is the access it gives small businesses and organizations to local mail routes and zip codes. Every Door Direct Mail® targeting options allow your business to dial in on specific neighborhoods by identifying what carrier routes and zip codes that have the best potential for new customers. It even has demographic information to help you narrow down the kinds of customers available in certain areas.
There are some pros and cons to using EDDM® targeting for your direct mail pieces. Today we’ll talk about some of your options, and we’ll dive into just how targeting works to get the most out of your direct mail campaigns while using this tool.
EDDM® allows your business to hone in on specific mail carrier routes by searching zip codes or neighborhood demographics. The USPS even provides you options that allow you to analyze specific demographic information as they pertain to each neighborhood made available through public census data such as income, age ranges, household size, and more.
Using this interactive tool provided by the USPS, you’ll be able to identify which zip codes, carrier routes, and neighborhoods contain addresses that house individuals who best align with your target audience.
