Direct Marketing has a powerful secret weapon — Unlock it right here!
Direct Mail programs gain leads, conversions and sales at a much higher rate than email or other online methods. It's the most powerful medium of Direct Marketing.
Ever since it was introduced, people said it was dead. Nope! It's always been alive and well, and living at strong businesses and organizations, large and small. It's a discipline that takes time and money to learn, so it's often been the red-haired stepchild of ad agencies and companies, and marketers who like to show "glitzier" things in their portfolios like TV and web animation..
Few companies explore or master its tools. Those that do swear by it (good swearing!). And if you've explored "Direct" and it hasn't worked, it may be because — faceplant! — key fundamentals or nuance were missed. Shift happens.
But is direct mail worth the investment? Does Direct mail really gain a strong ROI?
Proof is most successful companies employ direct mail for strong ROI in their marketing.. Just ask digital kingpin Google... it's one of the world's heaviest users of direct mail! The check into almost any Fortune 500 company's promotional mix, and see if it isn't a profitable segment of their lead generation, brand-building, cross-selling, and more.
No, it's not good for every company, or every program. That's why training and experience it critical to approaching this powerful beast.
In fact, many survey results show that direct mail…
conveys information and is easier to understand than online advertising
converts prospects to customers much faster
produces a stronger emotional response
gives you an infinite range of 2-D and 3-D formats to tell your story your way (more and bigger images, infinite folding formats, multi-pages, paper textures and finishing such as foil stamp and embossing, even scrent)…and create major impact. Done well, it can be incredibly creative and "glitzy"
it's more memorable -- it gives you more than double the recall
breaks through the media overload of the internet, and puts something physical — and credible — in the hands of your prospect
response rates are way higher than email and online
the best way to heat up C-Level and top executives, and cold or warm contacts? Go with on-target messaging via Dimensional mail (3-D boxes)... where the response rate goes way higher than regular direct mail, and breaks through the clutter big-time!
