Surrounded with ever-evolving online communication tools and technology, direct mail seems to have been left in the dust. That being said, there’s still room for direct mail in most small business marketing plans – if it’s done right!
The benefits of direct mail
The most obvious advantage of direct mail is that your message physically gets directed to a real person. Your brand is in their hands! People are much more likely to open and read a letter that comes to their mailbox than peruse an email in their inbox.
Direct mail also gives you an excuse to check back with a potential client so that those “cold calls” aren’t quite so chilly. Other benefits include being able to easily measure your campaign’s rate of success and target your market quite specifically.
