What is Money Mailer?

A marketing consulting franchise that lets you build a thriving business by helping others grow theirs


Money Mailer is a thriving, stable brand in the $46 billion direct mail marketing industry, and as you talk to our franchisees, you’ll find our innovative approach to local business marketing makes us one of the most appealing home-based franchises you can invest in. We like to think of ourselves as “The Main Street Marketing Franchise.” Franchisees work with other business owners in their communities, helping them strategize their growth. You’ll use our technology-driven process to show business owners how to target their best prospects. You’ll oversee professionally designed coupon offers for those businesses and coordinate monthly mailings distributed to 10,000-household zones.

Money Mailer targets affluent consumers, who are more than twice as likely to redeem coupons than lower-income households, according to CNBC.

You’ll have proprietary software and web-based marketing tools to present compelling proposals that become annual agreements. And you’ll solve one of the top challenges faced by local businesses: how to reach consumers living within a 3- to 5-mile radius. You’ll do this with compelling offers delivered right to consumers’ homes in our shared mail envelope, and then you’ll extend that reach with online, mobile and social media. With our B2B business model, you can organize your business life around your family life and never have to make another excuse to attend to a personal matter.

Why local businesses need direct mail marketing

Yesterday’s yellow pages have been replaced by today’s search engines. Both are a perfect way for consumers to find what they already know they need, be it a plumber, an exterminator or a pizza. But what if they don’t know about a wonderful business right there in their neighborhood? Local businesses need to reach neighborhood consumers. Direct mail helps grab their attention. Money Mailer’s direct mail marketing provides hyper-local offers to high-income consumers divided into 10,000-household zones. The clear window on the front of our red, white and blue envelopes features an attention-grabbing image like food, enticing people to open the envelope – who doesn’t love food? – where they’ll find all sorts of goods and services right there in their neighborhoods. Local businesses tend to quickly see results.

The best home-based franchises are about relationship-building

Franchisees are helping other businesses in their community grow, which provides them with a sense of purpose. “What I like about Money Mailer is the fact that I get to help small businesses. I get to bring in new customers through their doors,” says Peelu Shivaraju, who owns the Money Mailer franchise in Grand Rapids, MI. “I’ve fostered a lot of good relationships with my clients. They’re clients I golf with, they’re clients who brought me home dinners when my wife, Kate, and I had our first daughter, Leela. They’re clients that brought me dinner the when we had our second child, Ray. “They’re clients I go have a beverage with every now and then. They’re clients who come and hang out with us, we go out and do stuff together,” Shivaraju says. “The fact that I’ve been able to help as many businesses in my community as I have, is one of the most rewarding things I have done.”
