Nielsen Study Proves the Impact and Attraction of the Printed EnvelopeApril 20, 2012
The customized enveloped has to become more efficient.
Phillip Schilling, managing director of RAPP Germany, an international advertising agency, says the envelope has stood the test of time and has potential to improve its standing in the future. Work with clients shows that marketers prefer email over direct mails due to its high-level of individualization and its efficiency benefit.
Schilling suggests that the Nielsen study shows that if envelope-based communication can manage to combine its high quality with individualization and a reduced time-to-mailbox, it will increasingly be the medium of choice when addressing customers directly.
Speed is a decisive factor.
Recipients of advertising preferred postal mailings with individual advertising in real envelopes. Marketers want effective direct campaigns—high quality, direct and individualized —with a significant decrease in time required from the initial brief to the mailbox: Time-to-Mailbox is crucial for the future of direct mail.
