Every SermonView Mailing Receives:

Professional List Management

Understanding who and where you are sending a mailer is an important part of increasing your response. The DMA (Direct Marketing Association) says that list management affects your response rates by as much as 50%. We use multiple types of profiles based on income, age, ethnicity, traffic patterns, and more to determine the best responding areas near your church.

Relevant
Copywriting

In order to reach non-Adventists you need to understand the way non-Adventists think. Although SermonView is Adventist-owned, our team is made up of multiple faith backgrounds. This diversity helps us to build a bridge between the church and the people of your community. This has resulted in higher attendance at events across the country and throughout the year.

Strong
Calls-to-Action

In order to increase the effectiveness of a mailing, you need to be confident in the action you want from the reader. SermonView has developed a powerful and extensible website and phone registration system that solves the problem. Now every respondent can easily view more information, learn more about your church, and register to attend your event.

Keys to an effective evangelism mailer:

  • Strong cover with saturated colors
  • Congruent main title with nightly topics
  • Clear & effective offers based on felt-needs
  • Added trust elements
  • A concise call-to-action
  • Website & telephone response options

Custom-tailored Resources

Your mailing will be custom crafted for each meeting and personalized to meet your church’s unique needs. We offer two sizes of mailers: a Bi-fold mailer and Jumbo Card mailer, each with a specific purpose that depends on your budget and demographics.


11″ x 17″ Bi-fold Mailing

Guarantee That Your Mailing is Seen in the Mailbox

Bi-fold mailers are a great size for guaranteeing that your mailing is seen in the mailbox. Although bi-folds have a higher postage rate with USPS (about .5¢ more), they can increase engagement by up to 30%, making them a great choice for churches with higher promotion budgets, or churches looking to promote a longer series.

  • Can promote up to 10 nights

  • Cost-effective at quantities over 25,000

  • Large size takes over the mailbox

  • Strong, eye-catching cover art with focused offer

6″ x 11″ Jumbo Card Mailers

Get the Word Out at a Lower Cost

Our 6″ x 11″ Jumbo Cards are a great way to get the word out at a lower cost. These huge cards are printed on thick, high-quality cardstock—ensuring that they dominate the mailbox and get noticed. Jumbo Cards are fully customized for your event and will save you money over standard sizes of folded mailers.

  • Perfect for short-run events (2-5 nights)

  • Cost-effective at lower quantities

  • Largest size available at lower “letter” postage rate.

  • Strong, eye-catching cover art with focused offer

  • Also works well for handouts
