3 Reasons Direct Mail Marketing Has An Edge On Email Marketing

Google Direct Mail

We strongly believe in the power of Direct Mail even in this electronic age that we live in.

We see it every day, small to medium size businesses and large corporations use direct mail in their marketing mix and yes, they get results!

Even the likes of Google, who’s main business is internet based, uses direct mail to advertise and communicate with their advertisers and customers.

The best part is, it’s not just some generic flyer or brochure, they go all-in with variable data including graphs and charts reflecting the customer’s actual data.

    These are some interesting figures I had no idea about!

    We actually do not use direct mail and now I’m reconsidering things.

    Heck, we barely even market via email.

    I do agree though, when I receive offers via mail, it’s almost like a present..I get to unwrap it, then feel and hold and read it!

    Thanks for sharing.

  • Visual aids are really important in capturing your customers’ attention. And when you have something printed out that they can specifically hold in their hands, there is a higher possibility that you communicate with them directly without any distractions.

    The edge that direct mail has over email is that there is less of it! Some people receive upwards of hundreds of emails a day. That’s a lot of clutter you need to break through. Direct mailings on the other hand, they may only get a few.

    Another good way to utilize direct mail marketing is to send coupons, or some kind of deal to your dedicated customers. It establishes a continuing relationship with them and they will be more likely to tell their friends about your company! Thanks for a great post!
