Are you new to direct mail marketing? We've summed up some of its many advantages below.

Personal. You talk to an individual on a one-on-one level. It's you and the customer. You have more time to persuade, convince and engage those receiving your mail-out. You can ask them a direct question and encourage a direct response.

Responsive. Mail is the most likely form of communication to get a response from a recipient. This is because you often actually supply the means of response – which can be coupons, reply cards, application forms or telephone numbers. You're also more likely to evoke a positive response because you are conveying your message to people at a time of their choosing, making them more receptive to what you have to say.

Cost Effective. Mail provides a very affordable way to sell your message and elicit a response. Through targeting, profiling and segmentation, you'll maximise your returns on time and money spent and minimise wastage. And there are other savings to be made: a printed response form, for example, gathers the specific information you need at a fraction of the cost of a phone call.

Measurable. You can measure the exact cost of every response. Moreover, mail is a continuous learning process: through data collection and analysis of mail campaigns you deepen your understanding of your direct mail-out audience. What you learn provides return-on-investment information that will help refine your next campaign. Each mailing can be more effective and more precisely targeted than the last.

Data Security. A&O has highly secure SFTP sites available to which you, our client, have direct access.

What the ‘Stats’ Say

The UK's Fundraising Standards Board recently surveyed a selection of established donors – in Signed, Sealed and Delivered: What the Public Think of Charity Direct Mail – and they found that:

  •  53% thought that direct mail was a good way for charities to raise money for their work.
  •  Half did not mind charities contacting them on a regular basis to raise money.
  •  Direct mail that is specifically addressed to the recipient is more likely to be read.

According to an independent study commissioned by Australia Post – Reaching Consumers in the Information Age:

  •  Personally addressed (direct) mail was the preferred media option for club and sporting organisation members and supporters to receive advertising or promotional information about their group; with 35% of those surveyed saying it was their preferred option.
  •  For non-group members or supporters, addressed mail was the fourth most preferred way to receive advertising or promotional information from clubs and sporting groups (15% of those surveyed).
  •  Personally addressed mail was by far the preferred medium for charity group members, donors and supporters to receive promotional information and advertising material (34%).
  •  For non-members, donors or supporters of charities, personally addressed mail ranked third (16% – just behind television) as their preferred way of receiving advertising or promotional information.

A UK study by the Royal Mail and Charities Aid Foundation found that:

  •  Charity donors recruited by direct mail gave 5-10% more than those recruited by other means.
  •  Organisations in the not-for-profit sector account for 8.6% of consumer direct mail.
