Radius Mailings

Radius mailingA radius mailing list is used when you want to mail homes or businesses that are located within a given radius of a central point. This central point may be your place of business or it may be the location of a job you are currently working on. Radius mailings are used in both of these circumstances quite frequently. Let's take these one at a time.

Radius Mailing to Homes Around a Current Job

What would you do if you could turn 1 job into 3? With radius mailngs you can do just that! Neighborhoods around your current jobs have similar incomes, preferences, homes and needs for repairs and maintenance. Why not let them know you are in the neighborhood, by utilizing the power of a radius list combine with variable data postcards, to leverage your current job and get more business? Mail King's customer radius mailing program sets the standard. Some of the obvious benefits of doing radius mailings to land more work in the same neighborhood are:

  • More sales 
  • Save on travel time
  • Save on gas
  • Leverage the herd mentality in every neighborhood. Keeping up with the Jones'. 
  • Leverage the brand exposure you already have in the neighborhood (Trucks, signs, etc..)
  • More referrals

A typical radius mailing campaign would include mailing 500 to 2,500 homes around the current job 2-3 times while you are in the area. Variable data printing (VDP) is almost always utilized in order to get a better response. Variable data printing means we pull in the home owners name, the local street name, city name, and maybe some other factors in order to personalize the postcard and get more attention.

Radius Mailing to Homes (or businesses) Around Your Business

If you just want to mail homes or businesses around your place of business then "radius" is more of a geographical select than a specific strategy like the one mentioned above. With any type of mail list you get you can always determine the geography by using a radius. A radius will be a good starting point to help you get an idea on how many prospects live around your business. For example, a typical retail business will get 80% of all customers from within 5 miles of its location. You can then filter that list down further with a targeted consumer list or a targeted business list, or you can also do saturation mailings and mail all the carrier routes, which is also known as every door direct mail (EDDM).

Another common use of a radius mailings is for a legal notice mailing, aka public notice mailings, for your business. There are many such legal notices that must be mailed to all the addresses in order to meet certain regulations or laws. A very common one is when someone gets an alcohol license in which case they need to mail every address within 500 feet of their business to notify people of their plans.
