The value of direct mail marketing has been demonstrated repeatedly, with high open rates and high response rates. Direct mail is more durable than email, with a longer shelf life. And direct mail resonates with an unmatched tactile and visual experience. According to an article in PostPress Magazine, the mailing industry represents roughly 4.6% of GDP in the United States. US households read or scan more than 70% of the advertising mail they receive. And a recent USPS study found that 67% of consumers think direct mail feels more personal than electronic messaging.
A noticeable transformation is occurring in the realm of digital marketing. The impending decline of third-party cookies is transforming how businesses collect data and target ads to their audiences. This change, driven by increasing privacy concerns among users and regulatory restrictions, signals an end for these tracking tools that have been integral for ad tech companies. Major browsers like Safari and Firefox are already blocking third-party cookies by default, with Google Chrome planning to follow suit by the end of 2023.
While both direct mail and email campaigns resonate with specific audiences and yield results for marketers, direct mail continues to outperform email in most cases. Direct mail averages a 4.4% response rate compared to email’s .012% response rate, according to research by the Direct Marketing Association. And while email may get there faster than direct mail, recipients can unsubscribe from your emails with the click of a mouse—which makes direct mail more durable.

There are lots of ways to reach out to your consumers, but direct mail is still more effective, predictable and trackable than many other mediums. Designing an eye-catching and effective direct mail piece can make a big difference when it comes to your ROI. Of course, some formats can push you over budget on postal costs alone. But with the right information at hand, you can increase your bottom line without breaking the bank.
