Benefits of Direct Mail


Image of button with the words Mailing to Win: Election 2014.The 2014 election is shaping up to be the most challenging year yet for political campaigns across the country. The battles are heated. The marketing spend is high. And the media chatter is loud and constant. How can you communicate to voters about your candidate or proposal over all the noise? The answer: mail.

In 2012, 2.8 billion political mailpieces were sent – at an average of less than 19 cents per piece in postage. In 2014, political mail will play just as big a role. Why? Because it brings advantages that few other marketing channels can match…

  • Mail is best at targeting specific voters and telling a deeper story.
  • Nearly all maipieces are at least viewed.
  • Mailpieces can be saved for future reference and shared with like-minded voters.
