Why Direct Mail Delivers More Than Just ROI

At Send DM, we believe in the unmatched power of direct mail to create lasting impressions and strengthen customer-brand relationships. Unlike digital channels, the tangibility of direct mail provides a physical touchpoint that resonates with recipients.

The Power of Tangibility

According to a recent study by JICMAIL (the Joint Industry Committee for Mail), the average piece of direct mail is looked at for 108 seconds over the course of a month. This extensive engagement time allows businesses to deliver their message and make a lasting impression on recipients.

The Key to Success: Relevance

The true strength of direct mail lies in its relevance. When direct mail is well-targeted, it lands directly in the hands of the customer and resonates powerfully. Achieving this level of relevance requires meticulous data hygiene involving several critical steps:

Regular Data Cleansing:

  • Routinely clean your data by removing duplicate records, correcting inaccuracies, suppressing gone-away and deceased individuals, and updating outdated information. This ensures your communications reach the correct recipients.

Validation and Verification:

  • Validate and verify customer addresses to avoid wasted resources and missed opportunities due to incorrect or incomplete data.


  • Tailor your direct mail campaigns to deliver personalized content that resonates with your audience.

Consent Management:

  • Ensure compliance with data protection regulations by promptly respecting opt-out requests and managing consent effectively.

Overcoming Cost Perceptions

Many businesses approach direct mail with apprehension, viewing it as too expensive due to media, creative, data management, and postage costs. However, the perceived high cost of direct mail should be weighed against its proven ability to deliver exceptional results and engage consumers uniquely.

At Send DM, we are committed to helping businesses overcome these cost concerns by demonstrating the unmatched effectiveness of direct mail. Tailored campaigns ensure that every penny spent builds stronger customer relationships and achieves higher ROI.
