Targeted Direct Mail Is Not Junk Mail image

According to one recent study, the average household in the United States gets about six pieces of junk mail every single day. In fact, every five days we collectively produce enough junk mail to literally reach the moon. Junk mail as a concept doesn't just damage the environment (roughly one billion pounds wind up in landfills each year, after all) - it also damages the legitimate direct mail marketing efforts that companies like you are engaged in every single day. Shattering The Myth of "Junk" Mail One of the most critical things for you to understand about junk mail is that it is NOT a term used to describe any and all marketing collateral that someone happens to get when they ...

Using Direct Mail to Drive Digital Engagement image

In a lot of ways, one of the biggest mistakes that far too many marketers still seem to make involves thinking about print and digital collateral as two totally separate concepts. They may have started out that way, but there is absolutely no reason why they need to exist separately any longer - especially when you consider that they're essentially just two sides of the same basic coin. In fact, many businesses are enjoying tremendous success by using one technique to feed into the other, leveraging the power that only direct mail can provide to actually drive newer and more organic levels of digital engagement. You can do this with your own campaigns, too - you just need to keep ...

Direct Mail is Tangible image

While it's certainly true that digital marketing is all the rage these days, a number of recent studies have shown that direct mail marketing and other types of print collateral are more popular (and more effective) than ever. A lot of this comes down to the fact that direct mail, by design, is something that even the best piece of digital collateral can never and will never be: Tangible. It exists in real life. You can hold it in your hand. Share it with your loved ones. Make no mistake, this is one of the most valuable assets you have access to for a variety of different reasons.

Direct Mail Marketing is Far From Dead image

To paraphrase one of the great American authors of all time, "the reports of the death of direct mail have been greatly exaggerated." Yes, it's true that today's marketing world is highly focused on digital methods and avenues like social media or email.

It's true. According to one recent study, direct mail marketing yields an average response rate of 5.1%. Email comes in at just .6% and social media comes in at a slim .4%.
