Royal Mail’s Most Effective Direct Mail Strategy

Most of you will have received a letter from the likes of Sky, Virgin and Visa. What you will notice is that you will frequently receive these, especially at certain seasons such as Christmas. Sky advertises on TV, on the radio, on social media and via direct mail repeatedly. This is known as ‘drip marketing‘.

Drip marketing is what we recommend to all of our customers to provide sustained and impactful returns on their investment.

All big businesses are familiar with the rule of seven, which means most people take seven touchpoints (brand interactions through marketing) before taking action. Therefore, to see the same strong results as the big businesses, you must market like them too (though it doesn’t need to be at the same volume!).

Therefore, we recommend using direct mail as part of your overall marketing mix and frequently repeat to the same audience to build brand awareness, brand trust, and ultimately brand engagement.

This is the strategy used by the most successful businesses worldwide and used by our most successful long-term customers here at Flow.

How our mail house can be beneficial to you

We would love to help you and your business benefit from Royal Mail direct mail marketing. However, if this service appears too targeted for your objectives, then a Royal Mail door to door distribution may be the more appropriate option. Either way, please contact us today to speak with one of our sales consultants, and they can recommend the most suitable service for your business.
