Digital Marketing or Direct Mail?

In a digital age where social media algorithms reign and email inboxes overflow, it's time to break free from the noise and embrace the tangible power of direct mail.

"Mail is generally remembered by customers with research showing it has 35% better recall than social media advertising and 49% more than email." MarketReach

We all know that feeling of holding a physical piece of mail—a beautifully crafted flyer or a captivating postcard—ready to transport us into a different world. And that's precisely the magic we want to bring to your business.

"Mail is one of the most effective ways to reach the Gen Z audience – with JICMAIL showing that this audience is 40% more likely to claim that mail can change their mind about a brand than the average GB adult." MarketReach

With Mr Flyer as your secret weapon, direct mail becomes more than just a one-hit wonder; it evolves into a long-term strategy that fuels your success.

Imagine a continual stream of new inquiries flooding into your business, each one a potential customer eager to engage with your brand.


Why Direct Mail Works

Now, you might be wondering, "How does direct mail achieve such remarkable results?" Well, it all starts with the personal touch. We believe in crafting messages that speak directly to your target audience, tapping into their emotions and aspirations.

People also project physical production values onto brand values – if they think your mailing looks and feels' quality' then they will assume the same of your brand. DMA

When your mail lands in their hands, it feels like a thoughtful conversation—one that makes an impact and leaves a lasting impression.

Consumers see mail as a medium of authority – one they prefer for things that are important, formal or official – whilst 57% say that receiving mail makes them feel more valued. DMA

But it doesn't stop there. Mr Flyer's expertise goes beyond simply designing eye-catching and actionable materials. We understand that strategy and precision are vital elements for success.

By analyzing your customer demographics, we ensure that your direct mail reaches the right hands—the hands of those who genuinely need/love your products or services. As such, providing data is a core part of our direct mail service.

The right strategy is what gets your direct mail marketing working above all else. The strategy that the most successful businesses worldwide are all too aware of, yet so many SMEs need to be made aware of, is known as drip effect marketing.

The biggest brands know how forgetful we are as humans and so repeat their message over and over. That's exactly what we recommend too.

Rather than doing a direct mail to people once and never again, the key to success is to regularly repeat to your audience - build up that brand awareness and brand trust as that culminates in brand engagement.
