A clothing retail company reached out to us wanting to advertise the opening of their new branch. They were recommended to work with us via the digital marketing agency they currently worked with.


To get a message out soon enough to have customers coming into the door from day one on opening. 

Up to this point they had used Royal Mail for their offline marketing distribution, but the lead times available would have been too late. 


  • A targeted door drop in the 5-mile radius around the store. By drawing a custom map based on postcode sectors, we made sure that only people with access to the store got the drop.
  • A QR code and custom redemption codes were added to the leaflet to enable us to track engagement with the campaign. Thanks to this, we know that there was a 10% rise in redemption compared to previous campaigns run through Royal Mail.


  • Getting the message out quickly
  • Keep costs low 
  • Targeting only household that had access to the store

Benefit of chosen methods

  • Short lead times compared to Royal Mail who they had used previously
  • Not wasting money on targeting household that  aren’t in store catchment
  • Live GPS tracking as standard

Client Feedback

They were happy with the quick turnaround, low cost, and end-to-end custom service -, especially compared to previous experiences  using Royal Mail.
