Acworth, GA (PRWEB) April 29, 2014 -- Direct mail provider Mudlick Mail has signed an agreement to serve as a preferred vendor for Petland Inc., one of the nation’s largest pet store chains. The company will work with Petland’s corporate and franchise-owned stores across the United States, to develop innovative campaigns designed to drive traffic and increase sales.

Mudlick Mail is now serving 38 Petland stores, assisting the shops with marketing outreach to both attract new customers and retain existing relationships.
“Direct mail is the key to our success. We’ve increased our customer count faster than ever before,” said Brad Parker, manager of the Petland store in Kennesaw, GA, which had previously used email blasts and in-store flyers to build sales. “We had 100 new customers after our first mailing.”

Thanks to its in-depth market research, Mudlick Mail offers the ability to target households by neighborhood, income level, and other key demographic details.
The company also offers a customer penetration report that gives clients the ability to see who their customers are and which neighborhoods they are coming from. This report, along with Mudlick Mail’s database-matching program, allows clients to better judge the effectiveness of their campaigns.
Other key value-added benefits include:
• Free graphic design services to enable a completely customized postcard program
• No contract requirements or set-up fees
• All inclusive package pricing
• A free market analysis report and demographic map
• A free call tracking number to help store-owners accurately capture all in-bound leads generated by their direct mail campaigns.
