Ten Advantages Of Direct Mail November 20, 2007

As a business grows and becomes sucessful it can be very easy for it to lose the personal touch that made it so attractive to customers in the first place.

Direct mail can talk to your customers by name in the way that you no longer can. There are a few other benefits . . .

Addressed mail is literally designed to reach an individual. Mailings can have a unique design to suit each particular recipient and mail comes straight to people’s hands and gets their full attention.

Everyone consumes mail and Royal Mail provides access to virtually everyone in the UK.

Mail can be personalised to individuals or groups. That unique flexibility enables greater relevance, delivering greater impact and often applying data already provided by the customer.

Mail can focus on the relevant audience i.e. by interest, demographics, purchase or behaviour. This reduces waste as your message only goes to those that you select.

Mail doesn’t compete with and is not dependent on other communications in magazines, newspapers online, so it delivers much greater engagement and understanding.

Flexible & Creative
Mail has few restrictions in size weight and colour leading to limitless creative possibilities. The creativity cuts through and gets people talking.

Mail is one of the easiest media to measure; responses can be attributed to a specific activity.

A letter, leaflet, brochure or mail pack can be taken anywhere. Customers love the fact that they are in control and can read information when it’s convenient to them.

Mail is the only medium to provide the creative possibilities to engage the customers on all levels.

As part as an integrated campaign, mail has a strong role in providing personal, compelling messages delivered directly to recipients own hands and household. Case studies show how it not only builds short and long term effects but is often kept for reference, prolonging the brand presence and deepening the communication effect.
