How it’s Better

The United States Post Office Every Door Direct Mail program, called EDDM, makes you print and mail to every home and apartment on the postal carrier’s route. And you get a great postage rate for doing that, BUT…if you mail to most of the homes (50-90% or more of the addresses on the postal carrier’s route), you can still get the same EDDM postage rate (or better – under 16 cents) and you can eliminate homes you don’t want to reach. With Better Than EDDM you get a great postage rate and save a lot of money that would have been wasted on sending mail to homes that aren’t your market.

Every Door Direct Mail is great. Pick your routes. No mailing lists. Low postage. Deliver it to the post office and your direct mail marketing is on its way. What could be better? Mail Made Simple™ offers a Better Than EDDM mailing service with better targeting, personalized addressing, lower postage, increased deliverability, and….we do all the work!
Mail Made Simple’s Better Than EDDM all-inclusive direct mail marketing service includes your mailing list, postcard printing, addressing, postage and shipping. We handle it all for one low price and guarantee a 3-week turnaround time from the date art is approved to the day the mail is delivered.
Better Targeting
Save money by mailing only to the people who are most likely to respond. Target by: carrier route location, household income range, age range, head of household gender, single-family homes, multi-family homes (ex. apartments) or both. You also can include or exclude businesses. Better Than EDDM mailings remove vacant houses and those people on the "Do not mail" list.
Instead of addressing mail to the impersonal “occupant” that EDDM uses, Better Than EDDM increases response rates by personalizing mail with a name. If you prefer to target the mail campaign by gender, mail can be addressed to either the male or female head of the household (where available).
The post office charges 18.3¢ postage per piece for EDDM. Better Than EDDM postage is just 17.4¢ per piece. By offering a 5.5-in x 11-in jumbo postcard, your mailing piece qualifies for a lower postage rate.
With EDDM the mail gets sorted by the postal carrier – one per household. EDDM mail may get delivered upside down or backwards. At apartments and condos, EDDM mail may end up on the floor in a “take one” pile. With Better Than EDDM, your direct mail gets sorted by machines and is delivered by the postal carrier in the mail box with other important mail addressed to the individual in the home.
