While it may seem that the trend is moving away from direct mail, what is actually happening is marketers are choosing to use fewer, yet more effective direct mail pieces to deliver their message into their potential customer’s mailboxes.

 In utilizing the “less is more” approach, marketers are promoting more useful products to their customers and prospects. They are using a type of direct mail that contains “positive product” information and not just a piece of paper that gets lumped in with the trash.

Quantity vs. Quality

Which One Scores Your Highest Ratings in Marketing & Advertising?

In the past, having a conversion rate when using direct mail, one percent was acceptable.
