Seattle Direct Mail Advertising

 seattle direct mail advertising Consumers are exposed to thousands of digital ads every day, but the truth is, they’re ignoring most of them. Digital ad space has become crowded and businesses that once saw it as an inexpensive and effective channel for reaching audiences are spending more time, and money, to recoup their investment. With 54% of consumers wanting to receive mail from brands they’re interested in, direct mail remains a dominant marketing channel in today’s digital world.

National brands like McDonald’s, Goodyear and Terminix understand the benefits of direct mail marketing and use it as a core component of their advertising strategies. Local businesses along the eastern Pugent Sound coastline can see just-as-impressive results when their print campaigns are executed thoughtfully. Here’s why:

  • It’s Memorable. Your message and brand are more likely to be remembered by consumers who are introduced to your business when they receive your promotion in their mailboxes.
  • It Gets Response. With a response rate of 3.7%, direct mail gets a higher response than email, paid search, online display and social media.
  • It’s Precise. Direct mail can target specific households based on purchase behavior, income or demographic, in the same way digital advertising does.
  • It’s Relevant. 77% of millennials pay attention to direct mail advertising and 52% will switch brands if they have a coupon.
