DIRECT MAIL SERVICES – STILL A POWERFUL MEDIUM
We’re talking about the whole process of direct mail services, not junk mail. More than any other medium in the marketing mix, direct mail offers precise segmentation.
It lets you get close to prospects to maximise the opportunity to sell by personalising the mailer, the envelope and the follow up with a multitude of creative ideas through graphics that zing and visual aspects that remain memorable and tactile.
Of course, there’s a lot of detail in a direct mail campaign – the database, timing, postage and fulfilment as well as creative issues – all of which provide a huge opportunity to save money without compromising the creative and brand message if handled by those who understand the whole process.
