What if you could use just one mailing address to automatically generate a whole list of addresses for your direct mail campaign? It might sound too good to be true, but that’s exactly what radial search does.

With the new radial search feature in Lucidpress, you can make sure your direct mail is delivered to the right audience. Easily target prospects by specific geographic areas and demographic data, all with just a few clicks.

Why Targeted Mailing?


Higher ROI

When you use mass distribution, your direct mail is sent to a broad audience. Because of this, it’s inevitable that many of the people who receive your message don’t need or want your services. With radial search, you can narrow down your target audience to the people who would actually benefit from doing business with you yielding a higher ROI.


Personalize your message

Direct mail works best when it’s relevant and valuable. One way to make your message more relevant is to personalize it—and the more specific you can get, the better. For example, using geographic targeting, you can tailor your message to a specific city, county or zip code. With demographic data, you can customize your message even further.


No list purchases required

Many small businesses assume they only have two choices when it comes to direct mail lists. Either you spend tons of time building your own list from scratch… or you purchase one. With radial search, you have a third option. Because our radial search tool is powered by USADATA, you can trust that the information is accurate and up to date.

Who can use radial search?

If you’re a local service provider (e.g. plumbing, pest control, HVAC) or a small business, you can use radial search to generate direct mail lists for cities, counties and zip codes in your area.

Real estate mailing lists offer plenty of opportunities. For example, realtors can target all homeowners within a certain radius to offer home equity loans or refinancing. Likewise, they can send “Just Listed” postcards to renters with higher incomes who might be interested in buying a home.

Retailers can use targeted mail lists to reach certain groups of consumers. For example, a children's clothing store can send coupons to families with children.

If you offer a luxury product or service, radial search can help you reach new clientele. You can generate a direct mail list by targeting high-income households who are more likely to spend more on their purchases.
