Every Door Direct Mail (EDDM)

Brenneman offers Every Door Direct Mail® from the U.S. Postal Service®. EDDM is designed to help reach every home, every address, every time. You tell us the zip code areas you wish to reach and we do the rest. You benefit from reduced postage costs and avoid mail list expenses.

EDDM reaches customers who matter the most to your business in nearby neighborhoods. Simply identify the target neighborhoods and your message will be delivered to every active address. And now, with demographic information (e.g. age, household income and size) available for delivery routes, you can select delivery routes containing the customers you want to reach.

Data Enhancement Services

Our data enhancement services help pinpoint your best prospects based on hundreds of criteria. New search technologies and our experienced data professionals help save you money and reduce waste by finding the “sweet spot” in your customer data.

As with most databases, your customer information may be limited to name, address, and purchasing history. By using our data list enhancement tools, we can increase the depth and effectiveness of your data by adding information such as:

  • Gender
  • Age
  • Household Income
  • Own or Rent
  • Length of time in residence
  • Pet Owner
  • Lifestyle Categories
  • …and much more!

The more you enhance your customer data, the more you can effectively target your market and turn advertising dollars into sales.

Data enhancement services can also:

  • Determine what attributes are common to your best customers, and use that intelligence to reach your ideal target audience
  • Create a more detailed and complete picture of your current clients
  • Increase engagement with customers and prospects by adding a personal touch to your communications
  • Reduce mailing costs by segmenting your offers and promotions more accurately
  • Reduce customer defection and improve your brand image
  • Ultimately improve and increase response rates

List Acquisition Services

Not all mailing lists are created equal. At Brenneman, we utilize information to fulfill your desired campaign results in an easy and affordable way. We target specific criteria to tailor your mailing list to meet your needs. We assist you in determining your footprint size and zip code selection, suppressing any zip codes or locations you want to avoid. We use our experience and relationships with list compilers to provide guidance to help make your campaign a success.

By defining, segmenting, and targeting your prospects, your direct mail campaign will yield higher response rates and maximize your marketing dollars.
