Marketing to New Movers with Direct Mail

In 2016, 11.6% of the US population moved somewhere. They may have stayed in the same state…the same county…same city…maybe even the same neighborhood. They may have left altogether. When people move out of an area, businesses must adapt by replacing these customers by building a new customer base. We suggest that businesses advertise and market their products and services to new residents, because the benefits will include creating stronger brand awareness for new customers and the opportunity to establish a thriving customer base.

A recent article from UnitedMail discusses a few ways to ensure a successful direct mail campaign.
