Although we live in the digital age traditional advertising types such as direct mail are making a comeback. People really read direct mail with over 75% of posted advertising being opened by participants.
It is also a highly targeted media type, perfect for small businesses promoting in local areas. Since the dawn of digital, marketers have often thought that the online world would mean the death of traditional media such as print, direct mail and outdoor posters. However, due to the sheer volume of online advertising and the smaller frequency of traditional media it is once again becoming a responsive type of promotion.
Direct mail is highly engaging with postcards in particular receiving more engagement compared to flyers, letters and other materials. Mail is also more tangible allowing consumers to be exposed to your message for longer especially when compared to online advertising which is often only viewed for a few seconds.
