  • Posted by Jessica DeCrane | 2 min read

Thinking about your agency growth goals? Whether you want to grow a little, a lot or even just maintain your current customer base, you’ll need to do some marketing. 

We know that’s sometimes easier said than done. So, we’ve put together a list of top marketing strategies and turn-key resources to help you hit your goals!

1. Mail it in!

It might seem old-fashioned, but direct mail is still one of the best ways to reach customers. A simple postcard, flyer or even sales letter will increase your visibility with customers. It’s also a great way to re-establish relationships with old customers.

We recommend creating a direct mail campaign so you can keep track of your return on investment. The start of peak season is a great time to reach out to customers. Holding a special event? Send out invites to your customers and top prospects.

And want to track your results? Try creating a custom contact information that you use only for your campaigns. A dedicated email address, phone number or even landing page are all great ways to put some numbers to your efforts.
