Flyer distribution by snail mail is one of the most popular forms of advertising for small to mid-size businesses!
But, did you know…
Most people make buying decisions from online research. The truth is that printed flyers on doorsteps do work. They have been an effective method of advertising for decades. They are far more affordable than TV, Radio, print or Billboard advertising. However, they also fail, or at least fall short when compared to the online opportunities that are available to small businesses. Most people turn to the internet first when doing research about what to buy. Distributing flyers online offers businesses a 100% view rate that you simply cannot achieve with traditional mediums. In fact, consumers trust online banner ads 7% more than TV ads! Not to mention, they are much more affordable, which builds ROI nicely.
Direct mail blasts entire neighbourhoods instead of a specific audience interested in your products and services. This means that you’re most likely spending your marketing investment on many of the wrong people. Trim the fat out of your campaign by using advertising channels that allow you to target more specifically, minimizing waste and increasing return on investment.
Printed flyers are seen at random times, instead of optimized times. That means more of them end up in the recycling. Depending on your industry, there will be better times throughout the day to put your business in front of your future customer’s eyes. For example, if you are a restaurant, reaching people between 4:30pm and 5:30pm has it’s advantages because that’s generally when they are likely to be making dinner plans. When people are shown ads for something they are already looking for, they are much more receptive to the content and far more likely to convert.
Marketers need to spend countless hours cleaning your mailing lists or you waste money on duplicates. Keeping direct mail lists clean and updated can be an enormous effort. Having well groomed lists of recipients is essential for efficiency. An unmanaged list can add thousands of unnecessary dollars to your campaign cost.
Poor weather conditions can ruin messages. Delivering flyers to car windshields or door steps leaves them vulnerable to the elements, and no matter how good your products and services may be, no one is going to bother with a waterlogged piece of advertising.
There is no option to change a printed message if there is an error, or a change to the promotion. Once flyers are sent to the printer, they are permanent. If there is a misprint you have two choices, either go with it, or throw them away and re-print.
Information is limited, there is only a small space to introduce your company. This is a major area where printed direct mail flyers fall short compared to online opportunities. It takes the receiver a significant extra step to find your website online to read more about you. They have to take the flyer to a computer or pull out their smartphone and Google you. Online advertising makes this process much more direct. If you can get your potential customers to visit you online, you have a much higher chance of getting a sale than from a simple printed flyer because it allows them to see the full range of your products and services, increasing the likelihood that they will find something they want or need.
Information cannot be easily shared with others in your customer’s networks unless they physically pass along your flyer.
We’ve developed a solution that guarantees to deliver ten times more results than printed flyers.
I did my research because I know a lot of SEO companies exist and wanted to choose the right one for me. Wisdek's reviews on BBB were good and they explained themselves quite well in my opinion. I approached them for a website design and online marketing program. They took the time to understand everything that I wanted to include in my website and made recommendations even before I signed with them to ensure everything was user friendly and also stayed within Google's guidelines. Next, they treated me with respect and advised us of how long it would take to get ourselves noticed online. All reports are delivered on time and everything is explained to us monthly. Due to their efforts I have been able to gain more clients and people to my website so If you are looking for a company that will simplify the Website and online marketing process to you and show you realistic results at a good price, Wisdek is the way to go.
We started working with Wisdek in June of 2016. We have approached them with an idea that shortly became our core business. They developed our website within one month. We were very happy with the process and communications. We just opened our store location and Wisdek's technicians helped us set up email, hosting and Google maps. We are very excited to start our search engine optimization campaign and grow our business nationwide.
My experiences with Wisdek SEO has exceeded my expectations with the impressive scope of the program. Like many business owners, we find it difficult to stay on top of many of the changes and updates on the SEO industry to stay ahead. We have to rely on experts like Wisdek to do all of the research required to keep up to date with the internet visibility needed to support my business. I look forward to the upgrade, and I look forward to a continued partnership with Wisdek.
We've asked Wisdek to develop our new site and we were quite happy how this project turned out. We've got ourselves involved further with Wisdek by expanded into SEO. They've helped us grow our business locally during first three month and thereafter globally. We still work with Wisdek on daily basis.
We've worked with Wisdek right from the beginning to develop and launch our SEO equipped website. We've grown tremendously on account of their SEO and funnel optimization services. Thanks to Wisdek we were able to take our initial steps onto the market in a quick, safe and inexpensive way. We made the decision to jump in with both feet an utilize almost every unique service that they offer and we're glad we did. Today we have over 1 million clients that are getting organized, getting promoted and getting paid using our application.
I’ve been with Wisdek for over 2 years now and I am very pleased with their service. What was promised, was delivered. About 3 months after I started I began to enjoy good rankings across Google, Yahoo and Bing. Also, the cost was not unreasonable! Wisdek’s service delivers more leads than posting an add in an old fashioned printed directory and is more affordable than print listings were 5 years ago!
Today I have expanded my services with Wisdek from my beginnings in SEO, to PPC and Content Network Advertising. The return on investment has been incredible. I truly believe Wisdek offers their clients cutting edge marketing services and puts businesses where people are searching. I would like to recommend Wisdek to anyone who needs consistent leads for their business.
Northgate Chiropractic & Massage Therapy Centre in Calgary has used Web based advertising and marketing since 2004. As a result of continual investment and effort, our web site always came up first in local searches. The payoff came 3 years ago when people really began to use search as a way of finding our services. Last fall, our internet traffic slowed considerably and we noted that our search listing had dropped from first on page one to the middle of page four, literally making us disappear.
One of our service providers, Eran Hurvitz of Wisdek, explained to us that Google had changed their rules for search and were imposing a penalty on our web site for having back links. (The very thing they promoted previously as improving our web site standing). This penalty resulted in our listing being dropped to page four. There were thousands of these links and it looked like a significant job to remove these links. Eran offered the services of Wisdek to clean up these links and petition Google to remove this penalty. It was initially estimated to take 3 to 6 months to complete this task. To our great pleasure, Wisdek achieved the penalty removal in just over one month. We are now back on top for our local area and are very pleased with Wisdek’s service.
I would strongly recommend Wisdek and for web based service.
Wisdek has provided me with a service I need to make my business grow. It has saved me a substantial amount of time by outsourcing and has allowed me to generate more revenue and build more customer relationships.
My clients are international, there is no better way to reach them than online!

Our Firearm Safety Training business did not exist before we started working with Business Media and Wisdek. Business Media built us a beautiful SEO-Ready website from scratch that is now pulling in leads left right and center. Wisdek applied their most affordable SEO package for local coverage, and it was so effective that we started to rank all across the PROVINCE!
Business is so good that the phones are now ringing daily. We are happy to report that we will be opening a second location as well as a massive firing range in the next few months to capitalize on the overflow. We are actually going to upgrade our campaign with Wisdek to push our business even harder!!
