SmartEtailing offers direct mail to help independent bicycle dealers increase store traffic and increase sales.
We offer powerful direct mail tools for successful bicycle retailers, providing return on investment tracking and expert marketing consulting. SmartEtailing direct mail is an effective marketing tool proven to bring customers into your store ready to buy.
Each retailer is unique so at SmartEtailing, we work in partnership with our clients to develop personalized sale details and offers. We provide an unparalleled level of expertise in helping independent dealers market nationwide promotions for their local brand.
Direct mail literally puts your brand directly into the hands of your best customers. Most of your competitors rely exclusively on digital marketing to drive sales. High-quality direct mail from SmartEtailing helps distinguish you from other stores. Your marketing can attract more customers and help you capture more of the dollars spent in your market at the start of the season.
With our powerful direct mail tools, you'll be able to create a custom campaign that is focused on your spring sales goals.
We know that each retailer's brand and goals are unique. We can work with you to focus on increasing bike sales in key categories, upsell accessories to increase profit margin, turn over new inventory, or liquidate aging inventory.
With direct mail, all of these strategies will help you build customer loyalty and bring customers back into your store at the start of the season.

SmartEtailing offers several categories of direct mail, each specifically designed to achieve success with their specific goal.
Available for Spring, Summer & Holiday Sales
When you have a local or national sale event happening in your store, we recommend that you do what the nation’s best retailers do - send direct mail. For nationwide manufacturer promotions, SmartEtailing partners with brands to develop localized mailers that leverage national branding. For retailers with local sales, SmartEtailing can design unique local sale themes that have the same level of quality and appeal as a national campaign.
Available for Summer & Holiday Shopping
Customers shop your local competition and ecommerce stores for convenience, variety and bargains. You need to actively compete for a larger share of your customers' spending if you want to grow your business. That is why we developed Loyalty Mailers. This program encourages increased purchasing from your best customers by putting compelling offers with limited redemption windows into their hands at critical times of the year, giving them a reason to shop at your business. These mailers are not tied to a sale event. These thick plastic mailers with detachable coupon cards are sent to your very best customers as a reward for loyalty.
Available for Peak Selling Seasons (Northern Summer & Southern Winter)
Attracting new customers is essential to growing your business. You have very few tools at your disposal for attracting new customers that are measurable. SmartEtailing’s Prospecting Mailers saturate your target market with mailers highlighting your full-range of products for all types of cyclists. They feature coupons for product and service purchases. These mailers are designed to attract new customers so you can gain sales along with valuable contact information for future marketing.
You benefit from volume pricing because your mailing will print alongside hundreds of thousands from other dealers. Your mailing will be customized for your business and we'll ship at the right time for your promotion.
We integrate coupons into each mailing so you can easily and effectively measure your return on investment. Most campaigns feature barcode coupons to streamline your sales process. The more coupons customers bring in, the better the campaign.
Mailers are available three times a year and are purchased on a per-promotion basis with no annual commitments. Mailers are available to ship anywhere within the 48 Contiguous United States.
