Expertise as Direct Mail Professionals

We know how to utilize the power of direct mail marketing. We’ve had many years of experience using letter delivery via the United States Postal Service (USPS), together with strategies that include targeted mailing lists, personalization, and split testing, in order to successfully turn targeted recipients into prospects, and eventually into buyers.

In regard to offering fundraising solutions to charities and other nonprofit companies, the persuasive copywriters we work with have utilized time-tested techniques such as “storytelling” and appeals to the tax deductible nature of charitable contributions, to bring new donors on board, increase contributions, and improving donor retention.

Analytics + Donor File Audit

How well do you understand your donors?
It’s not a simple question. After all, truly understanding your donors means knowing the frequency of their gifts, the reasons why they donate, and why they're contributing more (or less) than last year, the types of appeals they respond to and much more. And you need these details across each of your donor segments.
