Well, in this week’s blog, we share why you should make a resolution to use direct mail marketing in 2018.
1) Too many emails
Most of us are bombarded by large amounts of emails every day. So how do you expect your marketing message to be fully ingested in an age of inbox overload? It is highly likely that your marketing message, and hence the foundation of your company, is sitting at the bottom of someone’s inbox, where it is more likely to be deleted. While people do throw out physical mail, it is much more likely they will open your marketing message and absorb it as opposed to email.
2) A personalised message
The second benefit of direct mail marketing is that it’s more personal. You can be creative and use your sales piece to connect with your customers on a personal level.

There is a lot more trust and value placed on physical direct mail.
