Success story: Homemade postcards

Maria has a marketing method that is almost too cheap and simple to be true–but it works. She loves to take photos of places she visits and has turned her hobby into a forceful marketing campaign.

Maria says she picks favorite photos of waterfalls, mountains, buildings, people, and anything that will get attention in a stack of mail. She orders multiple prints.

Then she writes a marketing message on the back of the photo along with the customer’s address and a stamp.

That’s it! People react when they see a photo in their mail.
The personalization stands out as something nice and different.

One man built a successful small record company using this method. He told me, ” People get so much marketing stamped out by a machine that they notice and remember you for sending them something personalized.”

Send me your marketing success story and I will include it in this column.
