Social media and online marketing dominate the way businesses promote themselves nowadays but more traditional methods of reaching out to customers can still be highly effective.

The long-established route of targeting people directly via their letterbox with a leaflet is still – even in our high-tech age – one of the best ways to get your name, product or message out there.

And it’s to provide exactly this type of service that Carlisle-based Mark Thorburn launched Business 2 Door in September 2018.

The company offers cost-effective door-to-door leaflet deliveries across north Cumbria that are GPS-tracked so clients can see exactly where and when their leaflets are going out. The areas they are currently distributing to are Carlisle, Penrith, Wigton, and Rural villages and soon be expanding over the border to the DG postcode area of Gretna and Annan.

Since starting out nearly 18 months ago 49-year-old Mark, who was born and bred in Carlisle, has already built up an ever expanding list of happy, repeat customers that include car dealers, takeaways and a garden buildings company. Some of the lovely testimonials (which as read more of them on his website that he has received has been from the likes of Andrew Hurst from Synergy Home Improvements who have said "Very friendly, very efficient. Pleasure to deal with, used Mark’s service a number of times. Would definitely recommend." 

In addition to delivery, Business 2 Door have teamed up with a local design firm to help produce and print your leaflet if that’s what you require.

As a special 2020 discount a 20 per cent discount off any distribution order of 20,000 or more leaflets for the whole year is available. And the order doesn’t have to be delivered in one go – customers can spread the deliveries into chunks throughout 2020 (for example, 10,000 leaflets in March and another 10,000 in August).

Mark offers a personalised service and likes to meet customers face to face so he can find out about their business and plan tailored marketing packages that deliver exactly what they need and reach precisely who they want to find. Research shows that more than 90 per cent of people read leaflets delivered to their door – so contact Business 2 Door today.
