What are Inserts?

Inserts are highly targeted printed materials which are placed into parcels, publications, newspapers, and various third-party distributions. They promote a product or service and often include a promotional discount code, with which you can track the number of new customers.

Due to the continuing boom in online shopping, parcels have become a part of daily life. This provides a wealth of opportunity for advertisers to scale their brand straight into the homes of customers, where buying decisions are made.

This exceptionally effective form of direct marketing reaches audiences that other channels cannot. Inserts drive new customers directly to your business.

As one of the most powerful one-to-one marketing options available, Inserts are a simple formula for growth in an increasingly difficult marketplace.

Why Inserts?

In today’s digital age, Inserts are one of the few ways to get your brand into the hands of customers. Using innovative print formats, Blue Market Media ensures you stand out against your competition with the core objective of driving sales and improving your ROI.

With eCommerce growing at approximately 21.3% year-on-year (source: Office for National Statistics), the number of products dispatched to customers because of online purchases is going through the roof. By placing Inserts into these parcels, you are getting your brand in front of customers where they do 83% of their online shopping – in their own home.
