In this post, we look at why you should include Inserts to your marketing mix as a key acquisition channel.
What are Inserts?
Inserts have become a great way to promote a wide variety of brand messages, but what are they? Simply put, they are the leaflets placed into parcels, newspapers and magazines from advertisers used as a direct response form of media.
What are the benefits of Inserts?
1. They capture your customers at home
Inserts let your customers browse your product range at home and get your brand in front of an audience that you already know is captive. They’re highly intrusive meaning that the engagement levels and imprint left by inserts are higher than that of other advertisements. In fact, they’re the ONLY form of effective physical advertising out there. How else can someone experience and engage with your brand via the touch and feel of the premium paper, from the comfort of their own home?
2. They make your brand stand out
Want to set your brand apart? INSERTS’s are the way to go. Online, we’re constantly bombarded with advertising messages, to the point where the majority of consumers no longer take notice of the ads that they see. With inserts, you have a real opportunity to create an ad that looks different and stands out, and therefore gets noticed.
3. Increased dwell time
Online ads can easily be blocked or ignored; however an Insert could sit on someone’s coffee table for a week or more, giving it a much longer shelf life. Multiple people within the house will engage with the insert giving your brand more exposure.
4. Broader reach
According to research, more customers use Inserts to make purchase decisions than any other form of media, with a large portion of consumers saying that they actively look out for inserts and the deals that they promote.
