What is our Direct Marketing Services (DMS) ?

DMS is a service operated in house by Approved Trades on behalf of its Members. Using the Postal Address File (PAF) system we are able to identify the full postal addresses of the properties most local to where you have your next job.

This gives you an ideal opportunity to let the neighbours know that;

  • You are about to start work at a particular property.
  • You are a member of a recognised Trade Association.
  • You are reputable.
  • You are considerate (a small apology in advance for any inconvenience that may have caused)
  • You will happy to give them a quote!

We do this by sending a personalised letter to approximately 25 properties as close as possible to where you are going to be working.

Each neighbour receives a letter which invites them to call us for a Trade Member to quote for any other work they may be considering. This means that at some time in the future, you may get a call from us to quote someone as a result, of a DMS drop done for another Trade Member in an entirely different type of business. In an indirect way, our members are all supporting each other!
