Direct mail is pushy. It intrudes.
In marketing, this is a good thing.
Direct mail — never, never
call it junk*
mail! — is the Cinderella of today’s
marketing and public relations story.
“Junk mail” is best defined as
somebody else’s direct mail.
Yes, we’re talking about snail mail. Doesn’t
that sound quaint? Despite the
so-called common wisdom, though, direct
mail is stronger and more muscular than ever ...
pulling its full share of the load.
Direct mail integrates perfectly with Web-based
marketing, driving visitors to your site. While
postal carriers aren’t deterred by sleet or snow
or dark of night, your Web site is ready 24 hours a
day (and on federal holidays) to serve impulsive
customers — answering questions for the curious,
inviting feedback and taking orders.
Well-thought-out direct mail gets attention. It
gets handled. Delivered via well-conceived affinity
mailing list, it arrives in the mailbox already
assured of at least a degree of interest.
Despite the volume of marketing mail, it **does**
get read. Research conducted on behalf of the U.S.
Postal Service says that well over half of
recipients look at least briefly at unsolicited
mail. When it’s properly targeted — that is,
when they’re already interested in the topic at
hand — the proportion of readers exceeds 80
Results are even stronger in business-to-business
marketing, where your audience is actively looking
for products and services to do the job better.
