Direct Mail Marketing – the secret’s out!

What’s the best way to get your customers genuinely excited about your business? Have you been missing out on all the buzz, the leads and the sales that come from great direct mail marketing?

These days, we all see hundreds of emails, online ads and endless other messages on our mobiles, tablets and laptops. And frankly, we’re all getting a bit bored. On the other hand, there is sheer pleasure in getting a personal, memorable piece of physical mail through the letter box. And that’s why direct mailing has real impact.

MarketReach/Brand Science/Neilsen

Did you know that an email buys you less than 40 seconds of attention? And, that’s only if it gets opened.  A letter gets 8 minutes – 12 times as long!  Mail stays around too on the desk, or around the home, usually for two weeks or more. So it keeps your business front of mind.  Mail gets passed around, it keeps customers buying from you and it brings in brand new customers too. In fact, direct mail response rates are 10 to 30 times higher than digital media (Direct Marketing Association 2017).

There are so many different ways that you can use direct mail services. Try a postcard or a simple letter. Or perhaps a brochure or catalogue. Add in some special offers – and how about a free gift?  Here at Mailing Expert we can help you achieve great response rates to drive your business, charity or organisation forward.
