“We decided to use the EZ Target during our most recent lease-up in the northern suburbs of Chicago. The insert program was a terrific substitute for direct mail, which can be expensive and produce little response. Our rep for Tribune/Apartments.com advised us on an effective geographical area and discussed a design concept for the inserts. After agreeing on a date for placement, we had a draft design back within a week and were able to finalize art quickly. For about one-third the price of a direct mail campaign, we distributed about 28,000 inserts and ordered an overrun of about 1,000 to give away at the property and at community events. The inserts continue to “come back to us…” – people had saved them and they were an effective way to generate awareness in the apartment community.” Steve Matre, Director - Banner
