Direct Mail

Over 4 billion pieces of direct mail are delivered in the UK each year. There are some very good reasons for this.

You can prepare and mail a small promotion within weeks rather than months. This makes it a perfect vehicle for testing the latest prices, offers and audiences.

Response is faster. You see the results of a mailing more quickly and accurately than with most other advertising.

“69% open all the mail they receive vs 22% open all the emails – 47% say they receive too much mail vs 70% who say they receive too many emails.”

It is cost-effective. X1 can mail to lists as small as 200. And X1 will target your mailings, meaning more results and less wasted effort.

It is more flexible. After testing a promotion, X1 can fine-tune it based on initial feedback.

It is more personal. Not only can letters be personalised via mail-merging techniques, but you can use more informal language in writing your letter and can direct your letter to the specific interest of the reader.

It can build a list of loyal customers. Direct mail allows you to build and maintain an in-house list of ‘premium prospects’.

“1 in 3 not only look forward to the mail arriving but are disappointed if they don’t receive anything – 70% enjoy receiving vouchers, coupons and discounts through the post.”

A postal database provides demographic information about a target audience. Marketers can profile the different individuals in that target audience to be able to engage them in a more relevant way.

There is no screening – there is no junk mail filter with direct mail, your recipient will receive what you send them.

People receive far more emails and text messages than postal pieces. Sending an item in the mail means you have more chance of catching your target’s attention.

Marketers can capture their target’s attention by attaching promotional items to a direct mailing piece. Also, paper is tactile and tangible, making it easier for marketers to show the value of what they sell.
