Why Target Movers?
The more than 1.2 million Canadian households who move every year represent big revenue opportunities for your company. Their spending power? $11 billion.
If you’ve ever gone through a move, you know that it’s synonymous with spending.
- 81 per cent of movers are willing to try new products and services as a result of a move.
- 87 per cent of moving households are moving out of their neighbourhoods and establishing new shopping experiences and loyalties.
- Spending is spread out in the months before and after a move, with sweet spots for different products and services. For example, of the movers who bought home electronics for their new home, 44 per cent purchased a TV within three months after their move.

Canada Post’s list service stimulates sales and generate valuable marketing intelligence.
- Working from lists of addresses associated with recent sales of luxury vehicles and other demographic data, Canada Post developed a list of addresses in nearby neighbourhoods.
- BMW then sent tens of thousands of brochures promoting BMW’s new 323 model (with a special $1,000 discount off the purchase price), and encouraging people to come in for a test drive and to enter an online contest to addresses in Canada’s three largest cities.
- The campaign generated impressive results: 1.6 per cent of the addresses that received the offer entered the contest online, generating a wealth of data.
Canada Post's list campaign delivers sweet results for Quebec grocer
- Sobeys Inc. has a network of some 1,300 stores. The grocery market is highly competitive and acquiring new customers is a challenge. Changing buying habits is difficult, but a customer’s initial store visit can become the first step toward gaining long-term loyalty.
- Using Canada Post's list service, Sobeys is able to identify and reach prospective customers more easily. Canada Post designed a campaign involving 15 IGA stores in Quebec. Working from Sobeys’ customer database, Canada Post developed a list of approximately 50,000 new addresses located near certain stores. Sobeys sent a special promotional holiday offer to the target addresses, offering a gift to customers buying over $40 worth of groceries.
- The campaign yielded an exceptional response rate that was 50 per cent higher than the rate achieved with similar campaigns in the past. The average purchase far surpassed the company’s expectations and the minimum required to qualify for the gift.
