Jury & Procedures

Best of In-Home shares inspiration & knowledge about the best use of Direct Mail touchpoints by showing the best campaigns in Belgium that created impact by reaching their target groups through the letterbox. In-Home Advertising is the ideal medium to create impact. The message arrives at the heart of the home, the place where all decisions about the household are being taken. The target audience will receive relevant commercial information without being intrusive. It creates a qualitative contact with emotional value. Mail stimulates response, an important step into achieving the objectives.

Addressed & Non-addressed

It is important to distinguish the use of addressed and non-addressed mail:

  •  ADDRESSED DIRECT MAIL:  Those Campaigns effectively use the extern & intern databases & tools in order to address messages to inform, inspire and activate potential customers in an effective way. These campaigns rely on the power of direct mail that lies in the endless personalization possibilities, which you can enhance with a touch of creativity.
  • DOOR TO DOOR CAMPAIGNS: Some Door-to-Door Distribution Campaigns are as simple as effective. They use impactful flyers or brochures to make a difference within the personal space of the letterbox.
