Die Cut Door Hangers – Marketing Magic
die cut door hangers

There are many marketing campaigns to choose from when promoting your business. Missed too often is the die cut door hanger. An inexpensive option, die cut door hangers can be marketing gold if executed correctly. QuickBooks has shared 4 tips to help improve your response rate when using die cut door hangers:

  • Research the demographics. Those old G.I. Joe cartoons had it right: Knowing is half the battle. A little research goes a long way in increasing the effectiveness of a die cut door hanger campaign. Create a customer profile to identify your target audience, then use demographic information to determine which neighborhoods in your locale most likely need your services. Focus on those areas first to see the best returns. You wouldn’t try to sell lawn services in a community full of apartments and condos, for example.
  • Keep designs simple. Remember that people quickly read — and discard — door hangers. Use bold colors and images, big headlines, and a simple, direct message. Don’t try to promote more than one major benefit per hanger. An appealing coupon, combined with potent copy and a strong call to action, helps to increase the odds of conversion success (and the likelihood that the reader will hold on to your flyer). Obviously, be sure to include your contact information prominently on the door hanger.
  • Track responses. Without a way to track responses, you won’t know where your door hangers were a hit — or where they tanked. Forget setting up separate phone lines or to hound customers for their demographic information. Use technology to help you identify where your leads come from: Remember that coupon you’re including on the door hanger? Assign unique codes and website URLs to door hangers distributed in different neighborhoods. When people take advantage of your special offer, you’ll know immediately where they came from.
  • Have your elevator pitch ready. Unless you hire another company to distribute your door hangers, passing them out gives you an excellent secondary sales opportunity: face time with potential customers. Before you head out the door, prepare an elevator pitch, or a quick blurb that clearly explains what your business is and its benefits to customers. With a pitch in mind, you’ll never be tongue-tied if someone opens the door and asks what you do. Be sure to dress professionally, too, so you’ll make a good impression. In other words, leave the cut-off shorts and ratty old concert T-shirt at home.
