Key principles of doordrop planning

  • Establishing a clear objective for the doordrop campaign is fundamental.
  • Once the audience is identified, strategic planning involves deciding on the creative, offer, messaging, incentives, and coordination with other media.
  • Success measurement is crucial, using response data to inform future campaigns.

Data utilisation

  • Geodemographics, provided by companies like Experian and Acorn, are traditional methods of targeting.
  • Market research data, such as TGI and JICMAIL, offer insights into consumer behaviour and interactions with mail.
  • Consumer expenditure data can highlight spending patterns in different regions.

Offline community targeting

  • Word-of-mouth is a powerful tool for marketers, as humans are inherently influenced by their community and peers.
  • Detecting word-of-mouth has been challenging, but when harnessed, it can significantly boost ROI for doordrop campaigns.

Application and summary

  • Doordrop media planning allows for precise targeting, selecting specific postcode sectors based on potential.
  • Brands can effectively connect with consumers in their homes using doordrop media, especially when leveraging new targeting techniques.
