the power of direct mail
and printed newsletters
Amid all the noise, clutter and complexity of our digital world, printed direct mail is still one of the most effective ways of engaging potential customers. According to Canada Post, direct mail gets noticed, opened and read because our brains are hard-wired to pay more attention to it due to its tactile nature. Studies show that marketing campaigns that integrate direct mail with digital elements elicit 39% more attention (i.e. time spent) than digital campaigns alone. Today, savvy commercial printers, marketers and ad agencies realize that they must incorporate direct mail into their promotions to be successful.
According to several online searches, email-only newsletters can average click-through rates from .5% up to 1.6%. However, a printed direct-mail newsletter can generate a 3% to 5% response rate. To give you another comparison, Mailchimp pegs the average click-through rate for all emails across all industries at 2.62%. Your shop’s printed newsletter, on the other hand, will be touched and seen. Ask yourself this: how likely are you to go back and open an email you skipped over earlier? The fact is that nearly everyone sorts through his or her printed mail at least weekly, if not daily. Plus, a printed newsletter also symbolizes a certain professionalism and a commitment to your clients that’s difficult to convey with e-newsletters or messages on a computer screen.
