Mind share and online traffic
In 2021 leaflet distribution can provide a food related business with two things. Mind share in the local area you are looking to target and online traffic.
It is rare for people to order food by calling a number from a leaflet. People are used to mobile food delivery apps and fixing this habit is beyond the scope of what we can do here.
With that said strategically planned and executed leaflet distribution has proven to be one of the best sources of quality traffic to online profiles of local food producers in 2020. The people that visit your online presence after receiving a leaflet tend to stay an spend.
Leaflet distribution also still remains to be the king of local London mind share. If you want people in your local area to know that you are open for business or that you have a new wine-tasting event coming up. Leaflet distribution is still the best way to get locals through the door or to your app of choice.
With the development of new stock control and operations techniques repeated deliveries have become the most important new development in leaflet distribution for the food industry in London. Almost all advertising relies on repeated exposure. TV ads, print, google and everyone else builds the effectiveness of a campaign on the target audience being exposed the each ad more than once.
This has been historically an issue with leaflet distribution as deliveries are made one at a time and some logistical challenges make frequent and tightly controlled deliveries difficult. This has now been overcome and leaflets can be delivered with a high level of timing precision.
As such we can plan leaflet distribution campaigns that target the same households multiple times with well pre-defined rest periods between each drops. Each delivery can also be made with a leaflet design that has been slightly tweaked to reduce exposure fatigue.
The introduction of this technique has seen a great uptick in response rates and anyone looking into leaflet distribution for the food industry needs to consider it.
