ONCE UPON A TIME

Turning your direct mail campaign into the next great story

Everybody loves a good story. So why not turn your next direct mail campaign into a story people will remember. Infusing the great art of storytelling into your next initiative is as simple as following this checklist by the Quantum Direct Mail team:

1 | MAKE IT EMOTIONAL
What feeling do you want your audience to walk away with when they look at your direct mail campaign? Trust? Reliability? Those are good places to start. The feeling can be anything you want it to be. Just make it universal.

2 | CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT
All good stories feature a good character. Just make sure that whichever character you choose—human, animal or even an inanimate object—has a likable personality.

3 | SPELL IT OUT
Incorporate a clear call to action that ultimately benefits your business or organizational goals.

4 | BE VISUAL
Compelling visual imagery is the key to a great story. If you write the story out in text form, always include a photograph or other image beside the text. Graphics are good, too.

5 | FIND A SOUNDING BOARD
What good is your story if it doesn’t make sense? That’s not a rhetorical question. The answer is bad. Have someone proof your story and answer the following questions: What emotion did they walk away with? What did they like? Can the story be improved? Outside feedback helps ensure your story is strong and conveys the emotion you want.

6 | GO WITH THE PROS
Use a high-quality printing and mail system to take your plan to the next step. Nothing ruins a good story like poor craftsmanship.
