Should You Love Direct Mail?

Direct mail response rates have reached a 14-year high, according to the Direct Marketing Association's latest Response Rate Report.

So if you've been looking for a competitive weapon, look no further.

If your foes have abandoned the mailstream, you have an opportunity to dominate the channel with the highest response rate of all.

The response of direct mail for house lists now stands at 5.3%; the response rate for rented lists, at 2.9%.

Dazzling, compared to other channels.

Web advertising garners a paltry .9% response; email, a .6% response for house lists, and a .3% response for rented lists; social a .6% response; and paid search a .5% response. None even cracks 1%

While email and social have a higher ROI (122% and 28% respectively), direct mail's ROI (27%) ain't too shabby.

What's not to love?
