How it is different from other tools There are two main definitional characteristics which distinguish it from other types of marketing or advertising. The first is that it attempts to send its messages directly to consumers, without the use of intervening media. The second characteristic is that it is focused on driving purchases that can be attributed to a specific "call-to-action." This aspect of direct marketing involves an emphasis on trackable, measurable results.

Advantages of using Direct Marketing Targeting – it targets a selected group of people and directly contact them and make personal interaction with them. Personalization - Direct mail can address the customer personally and be tailored to their needs based on previous transactions and gathered data. Optimization of cost and resources. Analysis - The bulk mailing is large enough to allow statistical analyses. For example the results can be analysed to see in detail the performance of individual offers in say a squinch report which shows sales per square inch. These enable better selection of offers and lists for future mailings. Direct responses can be measured and provide ease to the cost befit analysis.

Disadvantages of using Direct Marketing Cost - The cost per thousand will be higher than almost any other form of mass promotion (although the wastage rate may be much lower). Also, development costs in database acquisition/development. Waste - Large quantities of paper are thrown away. Low rate of response and less attention paid by the customer as they receive huge amount of mails from the companies.

How We Use Sweepstakes in our Mailings Every mailing carries the Official Prizelist and Rules. No purchase is required to enter the main Contest or Sweepstakes they offer customers the chance to win whether they say “Yes” or “No” to the offer. They depend on repeat custom, and their customers appreciate going in the draw, and they also want to thank them for considering the offers. Deadlines on certain prizes encourage customers to reply quickly, while the offer is fresh in their mind. They only want orders from people who want the product, so they clearly state the offer in the letter and the Yes reply envelope.
