Amazingly, it’s far from it. If you’re strategizing an effective marketing campaign for your business, increase your success rate by discovering secrets about direct mail. Introducing some remarkable statistics:
- 80% of adults keep some mail that companies have sent them in the last 4 weeks.1
- 5 billion coupons were redeemed in 2015.2
- 92% of shoppers say they prefer direct mail for making purchasing decisions.3
- 42% of recipients read or scan mail pieces.4
- 36% of people under 30 look forward to checking the mail each day.5
- 66% are more likely to remember to use a voucher if they have a physical copy.6
These statistics show that while many people consider direct mailings to be expensive and ineffective. Remarkably this is not the case. The derogatory term “junk mail” is not an accurate description of a modern, well-designed, well-targeted, and well-timed direct mailing.
E-mailings are a much easier and cheaper form of mass marketing, but they tend to have a very low open-rate. Because direct mailing items, are by nature more expensive, the secret is, they actually have a higher open-rate. According to the CMO Council, 79 per cent of consumers respond instantly to direct mail advertisements, while only 45 per cent of e-mail recipients do the same.7
