Why Direct Mail Marketing?
Direct Mail (Target Marketing) is the only adverting media where you know for sure that your Ad/Message will be delivered and seen buy the prospect you want to reach. Email is easy to delete without looking at it and Broadcast Marketing (newspaper, radio, television, signs) may never be heard or seen by the intended receiver.
There are lots of choices for your advertising in today's expanded media, but Direct Mail still proves to be the most efficient and cost effective means of finding new customers and ensuring customer retention.
We can saturate a given area of your choice, or create a customized "target" mailing list that directs your message only to consumers or businesses that are most likely to be your customers...and, it's trackable.
Direct Mail Advertising, sometimes referred to as Target Marketing, is based on a system of demographic accuracy. Here’s how it works in 4 basic steps.
(1) Identify: Our first objective is to identify who your Prime Customer really is. For example, if you own a Roofing Company your Prime Customer would likely be Home Owners of houses that are 10 years old or older. Further demographic information might locate houses with certain types of roofing, such as composite material. It makes no sense for a roofing company to waste ad dollars broadcasting their message to condo owners or renters.
(2) Locate: We have sources and means of locating the names and addresses of your Prime Customer Base in a given location based on demographic information that links them to the type of product or service your business provides. This demographic information would come in the form of a Mailing List. A search by demographics can provide a vast amount of important information to locate your best prospects. (For more info see Mailing Lists).
(3) Create Your Ad/Mailer Concept: Aloha Business Mailers has 20 years of experience in creating advertising that speaks to the needs of your customer base. (For more info see Graphic Design and Layout for attention getting grabbing Ads).
(4) Mail your promotional at discount rates: (For more info see Discount Postal Rates).

Mailing Lists: Business, Residential, Consumer
Mailing lists are the key element to Target Marketing that sets it apart from other types of advertising. It is a waste of resources to spend Ad dollars broadcasting your message to people who either don't need, cannot afford or simply are not interested in your product. Here's how you can change to a productive way of advertising. Say, for example, that you own a Ladies Dress Shop, specializing in up-scale clothing for all occasions. We can provide a mailing list of Women in West Hawaii, buy age, income, job type, etc. who are most likely to need, want and afford your product - essentially, Your Prime Customer. This same type of business or consumer data can be sourced and applied to virtually any business model, like your business. And it gets results.
Discount Postal Rates
Aloha Business Mailers maintains a Mailing Permit with the Kailua Kona Post Office. Our permit, along with the specialized equipment we use, enables us to address mail at the lowest Discount Postal Rates provided by the USPS.
If you are sending mail to Named Addresses, within Hawaii, we use Presort Standard Automation Rates (barcoded mail) which reduces the price of postage (currently from the First Class rate of 49¢) to approximately 27¢. (pricing may vary slightly depending on the mail list). This method provides very efficient delivery within the Hawaiian Islands.
Another highly effective program within Hawaii is Saturation Mail. This is delivered with a Simplified Address (Example: Kona Resident) and is directed to specified areas of PO Box, City Routes and Rural Routes. If you wanted to mail to everyone in, example, Kealakekua, this may be the preferred method. The per piece postage on this type of mail is currently 21.1¢.
When Mailing to the U.S. Mainland, we recommend the First Class Presorted Rate (barcoded). Under this category, you will still save approximately 10¢ off the standard First Class rate and your mail will travel under the same guidelines as regular First Class. See Special Rates for Non-Profit Organizations.
Target Marketing by Demographics
Many businesses are reluctant to spend money on advertising, even though Marketing is one of the essential building blocks to any business plan. Why? - because too often, the result of advertising is such a virtual and untackable thing. How do you know that the customer that just walked in your business is a result of your Ad?
Direct mail advertising changes that scenario, because your Ad is sent to "only" your specific Prime Customer Database, and your Mailer will include incentives to bring the mail piece in to you! These incentives are in the form of Coupons, Special Offers, Gift Cards, etc. Why do you suppose that big companies like Macy's send you Direct Mail, regularly, using this same tactic?....because it's a powerful tool that Works!
