The Importance of Using a Professional Copywriter

 
Direct mail is still an incredibly important marketing tool for business, even in the digital age. As with any promotional exercise, it's vital that your message is a good one if you're to gain any benefit from the expense.

Using a professional copywriter for your direct mail piece may seem like an extra expense, but it's worth every penny. It's probably better to view it as an investment than a cost. The return you're likely to get with a professionally crafted direct mail piece over an in-house piece will more than cover the fee.

Why Use a Professional, I Can Write Perfectly Myself?

Good question. It's one we hear a lot and has a short answer and a longer one. The short answer is, using a professional for anything makes sense as long as they are good at what they do.

You wouldn't service your own gas boiler unless you were trained to do it would you? Chances are, you would do exactly what the rest of us do, call a professional. Why should marketing be any different?

You may be able to write clearly and succinctly, but can you evoke a required emotion purely with words? Can you convince someone via email? Talk someone into travelling miles to come to see you on a postcard? Or persuade a prospect to invest in your company in a letter?

If you're the average business person, you cannot, which is why we use Copywriters. They have the training, experience and flair to be able to use words to provoke a desired reaction. They know what to say and how to say it to drive people to action.
 

First and Only Impressions

Direct mail has to compete with numerous other pieces that appear on people's doorstep each day. Whether that's business or residential, direct mail is a competitive space. That makes creating the right impression vital.

The prospect may never have heard of you before, so your mailshot is your one opportunity to create a good impression. Mess that up with poor spelling, grammar or word use and you could lose them forever.

Utilise that opportunity with a clever, well crafted, perhaps humorous message and you could have a new customer on your hands.

Marketing is all about making that great first impression. It's about examining that two or three seconds of attention you're going to get and ensuring you can get your message across in time. Seconds is all you have with the average prospect, you need to make the most of them.

Professional Copywriters are worth their weight in gold for marketers. They can take your message and elevate it to something truly special. They can take a mediocre offering and turn it into something people really want, resulting in more sales and more enquiries. Which is, after all, the point of direct mail marketing.
