Creating a custom mail piece can help your mail piece stand out, and mailing it in a hand addressed envelope will give it a personal touch. Getting YOUR message across is important, but you also need to make sure you are presenting it correctly. Here are a few tips to keep in mind when creating your own mail piece:

  • STRIKING HEADLINE – You want one distinct central message.
  • Graphics that support your message – Use graphics that reinforce your message. Don’t confuse this with a pretty picture that has absolutely nothing to do with your message.
  • Color Choice!Use bright colors to catch your audience’s attention and get them to read your message. Using different colors can offer different benefits, such as helping guide reactions, reflecting a season or holiday, or simply matching your logo.
  • BENEFITS, not features – Example: Don’t assume your leads will know what benefit can come from a lower interest rate on their mortgage; instead, tell them their monthly payments will go down.
  • The offer! – Make sure your potential clients know why they should be calling you instead of someone else. Keep your offer short, clear, and easy to understand.
  • Your company name and logo – Include your company name and logo on color letterhead in order to give your mail piece a professional appearance. However, make sure you don’t overwhelm your audience with it. They want to know what you can do FOR them, not who you are.
  • Call to Action – Tell them what you want them to do! “Call Now!” and “Email me at: 123@blank.com” are easy ways to get your leads to contact you.
  • Contact Info – Make sure to keep your contact information, such as your name and phone number, in an easily located space on your mail piece. Your leads should be able to identify your contact information quickly.
  • “The Glance Test” – Would YOU read it or throw it away? Use your judgement here!

At Yellow Letters Complete, we’re here to help your mail piece get results. Never underestimate the power of presentation; it can take a good message and make it great. By following these simple tips, your mail piece can stand out and get read.

Looking for an added boost? Send your mail piece in a hand addressed envelope. A hand addressed envelope provides a personal, unique touch so your message gets opened! By pairing your custom mail piece with our hand addressed envelope, you can create the perfect dynamic to keep your phone ringing!

At Yellow Letters Complete, we provide a variety of yellow letter templates to choose from, but we also understand that sometimes you want to switch it up! Fortunately, you can provide a custom message for your yellow letter to add a personalized touch! However, when creating a custom mail piece, there are several factors to keep in mind to ensure your message is effective:

Keep it Simple

Be careful to avoid lengthy messages and overwhelming graphics; these can actually distract your reader and lower your response rate!  Instead, focus on keeping your message clear and concise. Offer a short overview of who you are, what your services are, and how your target audience can benefit from contacting you.


Your leads want to know that they are working with someone who is reliable and credible. Be sure to reference your experience or include your company logo for a professional approach. Sending to a single mailing list more than one time can also encourage trust and establish credibility. When drafting your custom yellow letter message, consider how that message may fit into a series of several mailings!

Call to Action

Provide easy-to-follow and specific directions on what steps your leads can take next. Using vivid language and action verbs can increase understanding and guide a reaction from your leads.

Contact Information

Include your name and phone number in an easily located space. If you create too much competition for your contact information, such as by hiding it within a large message or dominating it with graphics, your leads may not know how to reach you. Keeping your contact information in a location that your leads can easily identify will increase your response rate.

Use the P.S. Effectively

When including a P.S., be sure to reiterate the most important aspects of your letter. This way, even if someone were to simply scan your yellow letter, the P.S. can quickly catch their eye.

Color Choice Matters

Color choices make a difference, so be strategic with the colors you use. This may include anything from the letter ink color to the envelopes. Bright or seasonal colors can also work well to grab your audience’s attention.

By carefully creating your message, you can maintain a high response while adding an extra, personal touch. For more information on what your custom yellow letter message should include, call us at 888-294-0780!

Now that you’ve had an introduction on the basics of direct mail marketing, you may be wondering what your next step is. At Yellow Letters Complete, we make it simple to start an order by providing templates for practically any campaign type. We can even pull a mailing list for you. Talk about easy! But how do you know which direct mail campaign to use?

We offer several types of campaigns to fit any area and any comfort level. We can send your marketing materials as often or as sparsely as you decide. Below are some common direct mail campaign options to help you get started:

Single Touch Campaign: Whether you are new to direct mail marketing or you are simply looking to test a new area, sending a single touch campaign is a great place to start. With a single touch campaign, we will send your mail piece to your mailing list one time. Sending letters works best for single touch campaigns. We offer yellow letters, typed letters, and stationery letters that all work well as the mail piece.

Single touch campaigns offer flexibility so you can adjust your message, mail piece, filter options, and more between each campaign. This campaign type also allows you to test and see what response volume you can handle.

Ongoing Campaign: After you have found an effective combination of your message, mail piece, and mailing list filters, starting an ongoing campaign may be your next move. Once we set up your ongoing campaign, it will run on autopilot. Simply send over the mailing list you would like to use and we can split the list up into batches, or have us pull a new mailing list with each batch we send on the schedule you decide.

Ongoing campaigns take away the stress of having to set up several separate campaigns. Also, because they run automatically on the schedule of your choice, you will be able to predict your response/profit. An ongoing campaign is the perfect choice for organizing your direct mail marketing plan and sticking to it. They also help you plan your budget. Concerned about getting caught up in contracts? Don’t worry! You can pause your ongoing campaign at any time for free!

Multi-Touch Campaign: Sending to a single mailing list more than one time can vastly improve your response rate. Multi-touch campaigns are designed to have each touch planned and ready to go on the schedule of your choice. A multi-touch campaign can also help you establish trust with your target audience. Also, since we prepare all of your mail pieces at one time, you can enjoy a discount for bundling your mail pieces. Worried about name removals? No problem! We can remove names from your subsequent touches.

With a multi-touch campaign, you can mix and match your mail pieces to keep the appearance of your message fresh. Letters are great to use as an introduction and explanation of your services. Postcards are a great way to keep your name in front of your leads with a pop of color!  Multi-touch campaigns allow you to design a custom campaign the way YOU want.

Ongoing Multi-Touch Campaign: The perfect collaboration, an ongoing multi-touch campaign allows you to send a sequence of mailings to a new mailing list automatically on your schedule! That’s right! Once you set it up, you are worry free. Your mail pieces will be sent automatically, and since we will send more than one touch, you are able to build credibility with your leads. That’s a win-win!

While an ongoing multi-touch campaign may seem like an overwhelming option, it is actually pretty simple. Since we mail your letters on the schedule of your choice, you can plan for your phone calls. We can even provide the mailing list for you, so you never have to think about anything besides closing those deals!

At Yellow Letters Complete, we understand that starting a direct mail marketing plan can seem intimidating. However, we also know that direct mail marketing offers several benefits! We want to share an introduction to direct mail marketing to help familiarize you with this effective form of marketing. Learning about marketing with mail pieces can help you easily track your response and form a clear, organized direct mail marketing plan.

Direct Mail Marketing is a form of marketing that delivers your message right to your client’s mail box! You choose your own marketing piece and it is mailed directly to your target audience. The best part is that setting up a direct mail campaign is both fast and easy. At Yellow Letters Complete, we offer a variety of templates for you to choose from and we can even provide a mailing list for you. Just let us know which areas you are interested in, and we take care of the rest.

Below are the main check points of preparing for a direct mail campaign:

Your Mailing List: When choosing your mailing list, start by deciding which area you are interested in. Consider adding mailing list filters to your list to help focus in on your target audience. If you already have a mailing list, that’s fantastic! If you need a list of leads, no problem! We can provide a mailing list for your campaign. Make sure to test and track the response so you know which set of filters performs the best for your area.

Your Mail Piece: Whether you use one of our templates or decide to create a custom message, keep your target audience in mind. If your mail piece and message resonates with your audience, they will be more likely to respond. Focus on using a clear, concise message and keep your contact information in an easily located space.

You should also consider which mail piece style will work best for your campaign. Formal campaigns will benefit from a formal mail piece, such as a letterhead letter. Looking for something a little more casual? Perhaps a yellow letter or postcard is right for you. With casual mail pieces, you also have a little more freedom with the appearance of your message. For example, you could include a relevant graphic, $dollar signs$, or words in ALL CAPS! This could draw your audience’s attention and buy a few more moments of their time.

Tracking Your Response: It is always a wise idea to keep track of how well your mail pieces perform in a certain area. Whether you are just starting out or you are a veteran of direct mail marketing, keeping track of response rates will help you form effective campaigns in the future. To help you manage your campaigns, we have included a Campaign Tracking Tool at the bottom of this post.

Direct mail marketing can help you grow your business. The calls you get from your campaign can also help you make adjustments so you can accentuate and replicate what went well.

Are you looking for results with minimal work on the front end? An ongoing campaign may be the solution for you! Direct mail ongoing campaigns work well if you have a large, overwhelming mailing list that you don’t want to send all at once. They are also helpful when you are just looking to put your marketing on autopilot so you can focus on reaping your results rather than setting up campaign after campaign.

Direct mail ongoing campaigns offer several benefits for you and your marketing. Below are just a few of the many benefits of setting up an ongoing campaign:

  1. We work with you to create the exact campaign you’re looking for. Once you set it up, we take care of the rest!

Direct mail marketing can be a lot of fun. You get to choose or design your mail piece, coordinate colors, and, of course, listen to the sound of your phone ringing. However, in order to pick the details, there has to be a strong foundation to build from.  This foundation is your marketing plan.

A marketing plan helps guide your marketing decisions to make sure that you can manage your response. For example, sending out too many mail pieces may mean that the response is overwhelming and unmanageable. However, sending your marketing too sparsely may create gaps in response and can make revenue unsteady and unpredictable. Creating your marketing plan can help you find and maintain a happy medium from which you can grow.

Your marketing plan will also help you plan and keep to a budget. Sending out several touches to a mailing list may be more expensive, but it will also help increase your response and boost your return on investment (ROI). Sticking to a marketing plan will help you balance your funds and plan for future expenditures.

If this all sounds overwhelming, don’t worry. Instead of planning and stressing over setting up several campaigns, you can set up an ongoing campaign ONCE. That’s right, once you set up your ongoing campaign, it will run on autopilot until your mailing list runs out or you put it on hold. Your ongoing campaign will mail out on the schedule of your choice, so you can easily keep track of it on your marketing plan.

Ongoing campaigns can also help you plan and keep to your budget. If you are mailing the same quantity each time on the schedule you choose, you will know exactly how much each mailing will cost. This can help you plan other aspects of your business and allocate your funds accordingly.

The best part is that YOU decide what your ongoing campaign looks like. Looking to send several touches to your mailing list? No problem! Simply tell us how many you’d like to mail each week and your multi-touch ongoing campaign can run on autopilot. Just starting out and want to space out your mailings to help manage your phone calls? We can do that too. In fact, your ongoing campaign can contain any number of touches and any combination of mail pieces you would like. We can even pull a new mailing list with each batch we mail or split your large mailing list into several smaller batches.

Sending an ongoing campaign on autopilot can dramatically improve the stability of your response. By incorporating an ongoing campaign into your marketing plan, you can get rid of your marketing headaches! Call us today at 1-888-294-0780 or email info@yellowletterscomplete.com to set up your ongoing campaign.

Do you wish your marketing could just mail automatically without having to set up campaign after campaign? Direct mail ongoing campaigns can help save time by sending your direct mail on autopilot!

An ongoing campaign is similar to any other direct mail campaign. The only difference is that you only have to set up your campaign once! After that, your campaign runs on autopilot. We will send the quantity of your choice from your mailing list until your list runs out. If you need a list, we can pull a new list of leads for each mailing. We will then send your mail pieces out on the timeline of your choice. You can even decide how long you want to wait in between mailings.

Ongoing campaigns offer several benefits. You can set up your marketing ONCE and then you don’t have to worry about constantly planning and setting up new campaigns. Ongoing campaigns can also help you plan your budget. Once you know what a single batch of your chosen mail piece costs, you can anticipate future costs. You can then allocate the right amount of funds you will need for your marketing.

The best part is that you set up an ongoing campaign just like any other direct mail marketing campaign. Simply send over your mailing list or we can pull a mailing list for you. Then you can choose your mail piece and schedule.

Once your order is all squared away and you have approved your proofs, the order process is complete! You don’t have to worry about setting up a new a new order every time you want to send something out. If you ever need to adjust your campaign, simply let us know and we can make updates to your campaign.

Obtaining a new client can take a lot of time and effort. First, you must find your target audience, reach out with relevant marketing, wait for their call, talk through your offer (sometimes several times), and finally (hopefully!) land a deal. Phew! That can be exhausting!

While it is necessary to obtain new clients, it can also be a bit overwhelming. Sometimes, it may seem like getting new clients is the only thing that matters. But what is even better than getting a new client? Keeping a great client!

Loyal customers bring repeat business, which means you can keep a healthy flow of revenue. Trust has already been established, so the conversations are often brief yet fruitful. That means you save on time and energy!

When it comes to real estate, however, maintaining customer loyalty can get tricky. Buying and selling property might not be something your leads do every day. However, when the time comes for them to buy/sell again, you want to be the one they reach out to. In the interim, a loyal client can still offer several benefits. Perhaps most valuable is the positive word-of-mouth marketing that comes from a loyal client. Trustworthy recommendations from friends and family are priceless.

In order to keep a loyal client, you must continue to nurture the relationship. Once you have closed a deal, make sure to follow-up with them. A simple thank you can stand out and leave a lasting impression.

Greeting cards are a perfect way for reaching out and thanking past clients. Classic and effective, a greeting card can be personalized for your leads. You can choose between typed or handwritten font and can even pick the graphic for the front of the card. Don’t see one you like? No problem! We can even customize your greeting card with the picture or logo of your choice.

We then prepare each greeting card by placing it in a truly hand addressed envelope and placing your choice of first class or standard postage on the front. Your clients will love to open up their mail box and see a truly hand addressed envelope waiting for them!

This simple gesture can strengthen current relationships with your clients and lead to cultivating new ones. Maintaining customer loyalty can help fortify trust and grow name recognition in your community. Perhaps the best way to reach new clients is to thank your old ones!
