March is one of the key months for school buying. Here are three discount offers to help your campaign along.
This is the time of year when local authority schools budgets end and any money that was due to be spent before April 5 has to be spent – pronto.
Although Academy budgets tend not to end until next term, they too quite often use this term as one of catching up with expenditure on key items as they start putting into effect all the plans that they outlined last year.
To accommodate what is in effect one of the big buying seasons of the school year Hamilton House traditionally organises some helpful low cost promotional facilities – and this year we are most certainly doing this.
We have discounts on solo postal campaigns, discounts on personal email campaigns, and another 3-Media offer in which you can get a free internet campaign and a free email campaign when you undertake a shared or solo postal campaign with Hamilton House.
With all these offers the key point to remember is the dates. Most schools will be closed between 30 March and 10 April – although some will be closed the following week.
So you can still email teachers during this period (they continue to look at their emails on their tablets, phones and the like through their holidays) and they’ll take decisions and email the request for a purchase to be made into the school office.
So, here are the details in three areas of promotion: Solo postal, Personal email, 3-Media
Solo postal campaigns: If you provide your leaflets so that Hamilton House can undertake the work of filling the envelopes, etc, between 30 March and 10 April we’ll give you a 20% discount on the cost of envelopes, labels and labour.
You don’t have to have the mailing posted at this time – we can hold it over despatch until any time up to the end of April – you just have to let us do the physical work during that period.
Personal email campaigns: Any personal email campaign that goes out between 30 March and 10 April will either be charged at half price, or will be free if you book in another promotion with us before the end of April.
3 Media Campaigns: If you book in any solo postal mailing of over 4000 addresses or a shared postal campaign to secondary schools which goes out on 28 April, you will also get a free email campaign to any secondary personal email list plus listings in all of our education web sites, including UK Education News.
This particular 3 Media Campaign allows you, if you wish, to send out the email campaign prior to the end of the financial year, and then follow up with the postal campaign in the new financial year. Or of course you can do both mailings at once.
5000 leaflets printed for £20. If you book into the 3 Media campaign we can, if you wish, also print 5000 leaflets for the mailing, black on white, for just £20.
