“We consistently deliver results for our clients”

“We consistently deliver results for our clients”

The Design Print Distribution Group helps businesses of all types gain new customers

We live in an increasingly digital world, don’t we? Yes and no.

While online advertising options are increasingly in demand, so are the more traditional methods of advertising a business’ services or products too.

Print marketing stands out from the crowd, but more importantly, it gets great results and returns for a client’s marketing budget.

The Design Print Distribution Group helps clients in various ways, from local door drop leafleting campaigns and targeted direct mail to print management and graphic design.

These methods have helped its numerous clients across the country in a wide variety of sectors - from estate agents, gyms and restaurants to all the major political parties.

Positive outlook

Mike Ethridge, managing director of The Design Print Distribution Group, explains: “The print marketing market outlook is very positive and we’re growing year on year. In fact, we haven’t stopped growing since we were founded.

“Yes, we have the internet and online marketing, but we will always have local, regional and even national businesses that will need to reach a target audience in a specific geographical location.

“As long as people live in homes with letterboxes and as long as there are businesses looking for new customers, there will be a strong demand for our service.”

Franchise package

The Design Print Distribution Group’s aim is to continue this growth, with the ambition of helping businesses in every city in the UK and is looking for people who want to build their own successful business in their own city to join the company’s network of franchisees.

The franchise package is very comprehensive and includes everything needed to not just start trading from day one, but to start gaining clients from day one.

As well as full training ahead of launch, sophisticated mapping software is provided, plus all the hardware needed to start building a business.

On the opportunity, Mike says “This is a business opportunity and not just a job opportunity we’re providing. We’re 100 per cent committed to our franchisees and their success on their journey with us.

“The territories we provide are very large, with typically over a quarter of a million homes within them, providing scope for a very decent sized business that will build over the long term and provide our franchisees with the lifestyle they deserve.

“Unlike other business models that are reliant on one income stream, we have four, which help to secure a successful business model that delivers long-term growth.”

New challenge

While no experience is necessary as The Design Print Distribution Group will train and support you in all aspects of the business, it wants to recruit people who are looking for a new challenge and have a strong desire to build a business in their own city, helping the businesses and business owners based in it.

With 2022 on the horizon, now is a great time to be thinking about your next business opportunity.
