Direct mail- fighting back!

According to information gathered by Royal Mail, more than 92% of direct mail is opened and 48% of UK adults acted after receiving direct mail:

Out of that “Acted” figure, 14.2million people purchased something, 10.5 million people used a voucher or redeemed a coupon, nearly 3million people tried a new product or service and 3 million people followed up the direct mail by enquiring by phone

More powerful than digital

Digital marketing has its place, and the use of digital continues to grow, however, as customers face email fatigue and the novelty wears off banner advertising, direct mail is outperforming digital. Direct mail delivers an average £3.22 return on investment compared with on line’s £3.12 for every £1 spent. Whilst this difference is not huge, its more about the fact that these sales are” extra sales” that your competitors only using digital forms of marketing are not touching And don’t forget the digitally disenfranchised. According to TGI 58% of those over 65 and 46.6% of those in socio-economic group E have not used the internet in the past year- for many products and services, this is a huge audience waiting to be tapped into.

Direct mail improves mail order

According to the latest research, almost 18million people ordered from mail order catalogues or their associated websites in the past 12 months; 43% completed the purchase online, 30% by post and 25% by telephone.  90% of consumers read catalogues sent to them through the post, 70% go online after receiving catalogues. – This can sometimes get lost in the stats and become attributed to an online conversion.

How Piranha can help you with Direct mail Services

Customer Profiling

For B2B Direct mail, we will look at your current customer database to establish the types of companies that are proving to be the most prolific and profitable. We will look at geographical spread; sic code, company size, age of company, number of regional offices or outlets and the individual who is ultimately making the purchasing decision. For consumer profiling, we use MOSAIC to fully understand your customer types which is categorised based on the postcode of each customer

Database Building

Based on the profile of your existing customer database, combined with any new business objective you may have, we will build you a unique new business database taken from a pool of 1.6 million UK registered companies. (GDPR Complient) This unique database is guaranteed to be accurate at the time of purchase. This will match all the chosen criteria of your most profitable customer groups. For consumer data, we can purchase non customer details that match your customers profile , interests or purchasing habits. Again we stick stringently to any data legislation relating to the purchase or holding of data relating to direct mail.
