The Power of Direct Mail

January 30, 2023by Welcome Wagon0

Each year, the US Postal Service collects and distributes more than 200 billion letters and packages mailed within and outside the United States. 

Direct mail has been around for ages and brings in one of the highest ROIs, yet many brands forgo this channel in favor of digital outreach. Direct mail is far from dead.

Since customers physically handle mail and often look at it before deciding whether to save it, direct mail can help your marketing get more attention. If you include a promotional offer, coupon, or call-to-action that requires them to do something with the mail, like take it to a store or restaurant, your customers are more likely to save it.

In fact, it’s thriving more than ever. According to recent research, direct mail has the highest ROI of any direct response medium and consumers ascribe high purchase influence to mail. New findings suggest that when direct mail is combined with an omnichannel marketing strategy, marketers can increase the response rate by 63%, with a 60% increase in the return on the investment. 

Good correspondence management is essential in the business sector, since through it the relationship between client-supplier can be strengthened.

In this discussion, hosted by Luci Rainey, former SVP of Marketing at Comcast and PODS, we hear from Maria De La Salas, President of Welcome Wagon and Michelle Taves, CEO of V12, a Porch Company about the power of direct mail in the age of digital.
