  • Does direct mail marketing work?

    Absolutely. If direct mail marketing didn’t work it wouldn’t be so popular, but the best way to answer this question is to throw some questions back at you.

    • Have you ever received direct mail marketing materials?

    • Did you pick them up?

    • Look at them?

    • Decide if you wanted them or not?

    Even if you decided that you didn’t care about the materials you still took the time to pick them up, hold them, flip through them, and maybe even keep a few. We are willing to bet that on more than one occasion direct mail even influenced your purchasing decision.

  • Why does direct mail marketing work?

    Direct mail marketing puts your branded materials directly into the homes of people who are statistically most likely to respond positively to them. Unlike annoying pop-up ads, TV ads that people skip through, or a billboard you pass on the highway; direct mail puts a physical object in your potential clients’ homes. They look it over, decide if it is useful and in most cases usually ends up on the counter, table, or fridge for days, weeks or longer as a reminder for them.

  • Why is direct mail marketing still relevant?

    Direct mail has been around for a long time. It outlasted the emergence of radio, television, the Internet, and now social media. Direct mail has survived and thrived for one reason – it works. Believe it or not, today there are still individuals and businesses that are not online (or not online as much as you). This is why even Google, a name synonymous with silicone valley, often uses direct mail to reach new potential clients.

  • How does direct mail integrate with marketing and new technologies?

    Direct mail has evolved with technology. It is now more targeted and integrated with digital media than ever before. Direct mail can be used to redirect people to websites, landing pages, social media accounts, and other digital properties either by posting an address or through the use of a QR code. When a user scans the QR code with their smartphone, it takes them directly to the web address that you designate.
