Door drops: helping you to grow your business
Door drops such as leaflets, flyers and brochures can be a powerful addition to your marketing mix. They put your brand message straight into the homes of new and existing customers and drive high levels of engagement. In fact, research shows that 83% of door drops are opened, read or filed*. And they are great value for money too. For as little as £500** you could reach up to 8,000 households to help build your business.
Whether you are a big, medium or small business, you can take advantage of our Door to Door free targeting service to help you reach the right households for your campaign. And you can do this locally or nationally in almost 30 million homes across the UK without using personal data.
It’s no wonder 80% of the UKs top advertisers use door drops.^

Planning great door drops
What exactly are you promoting? Are you offering a discount or running a promotion? How and when do you want the customer to respond?
Do you want to bring in new types of customers, or more of the same people who already use your services?
Our targeting is very sophisticated. For example, we can target by location (i.e. people who live in the postcodes surrounding your business) or by demographic (e.g. people with or without children, or in different economic brackets). And we do all this for free.
Door to Door covers targeting and distribution, but if you need help with design and printing why not use a Royal Mail recommended ‘Mail Made Easy’ provider?

Following the announcement of the above as part of the Tariff communications in December 2020 are writing to confirm to you that the Door to Door Walk Bundling Centre currently located at 53 Feus Road, Perth will be moving to a new location at 58 Canyon Road, Netherton Industrial Estate, Wishaw. The move will mean that all contracts booked for delivery week on or after week commencing 5 April will need to be handed over at the Scottish Walk Bundling Centre in Wishawpdf, 668.75 KB.
Scottish WBC’s opening hours are 8am – 4pm Monday to Friday. Based on our review of these contracts we believe that for many the changes will be positive, and our express intention is to try to ensure that customers do not experience any unnecessary inconvenience as a result of these changes.
Large Contract request – the Scottish WBC benefits from a docking platform allowing unloading under cover and directly into the building. For contracts being transported on large goods vehicles we would be grateful if hauliers can deliver using either a rigid trailer, or if using a curtain-sided vehicle, arrange their pallets so that they can be unloaded from the rear of the Trailer. The benefit of this will be a swifter handover and elimination of the risk of any rain damage to items.
As a reminder, Door to Door offers a competitively-priced Collection Service. If you are interested in this convenient method of handover please contact the Door to Door Team for more details, or if you are one of the customers we contact in relation to the above, please ask them for more details.
Please note – if you have a distribution date of on or before w/c 29 March please continue to handover your items to Perth WBC as normal according to your Handover Schedule.
