When planning a leaflet campaign for your business, whether you are looking to promote a sale, or just get more foot traffic, it is vital you consider an effective leaflet distribution strategy.

Here are some key distribution tips you can follow when launching the perfect leaflet campaign:

The Top 5 Key Tips When Planning your Leaflet Distribution Strategy

1. Be strategic with your leaflet design

A staggering 92% of people read the door drops delivered to their homes by Royal Mail, but to ensure that yours is one of them, strategic leaflet design is key to ensuring your campaign gives a lasting impression.

2. Give Discounts to Attract New Customers

Offering a discount or special deal is a great way to attract new customers and entice your leaflet audience.
By including a tailored promotional code, coupon, or special offer within your leaflet depending on user group or area, you’ll be able to gather more data about who is responding to your leaflet campaign.

Quick Tip: It’s important the discount codes you use don’t expire too quickly, so consider this when making the code live or deactivating it.

3. Consider a Multi-Drop Leaflet Strategy

Considering a Multi-Drop Strategy is an excellent way of increasing brand presence and making the most of your leaflet advertisement.

The option to deliver more than one leaflet in the space of a month can help increase the engagement and response rates of a campaign. Although the branding should remain consistent, the second leaflet drop could be altered to provide further campaign messaging, helping to reinforce your brand’s identity. This is a particularly valuable strategy once you have data from your first drop to tell you which areas or demographics particularly responded to your first campaign.

4. Consider your target Audience carefully

Picking the right target audience for your leaflet distribution is essential in creating a successful leaflet campaign.

Delivering a non-targeted leaflet distribution campaign means you can’t tell if you are marketing to the right people or even in the right area. Planning a campaign with targeted distribution turns a leaflet into a mature marketing campaign and lets you strategise by choosing your target audience.

5. Choose the Best Leaflet Distribution Partner

Consider who will be distributing your leaflets. Local distributors can be cost effective but do not guarantee all your leaflets will end up on your target doormats. Royal Mail can be slightly more expensive but guarantees your distributions and delivers your leaflets alongside the post.
