‘Trends & Future of Direct Marketing’ (Part 2) - PRIMIR SummaryApril 21, 2011
The FSI market is robust and one of the few bright spots for newspapers. The continued health of this category has confounded those who predicted its demise along with falling newspaper circulation. Kantar Media indicated that FSI spending increased by 7.6 percent in the first half of 2010.
The research found that retailers plan to continue to use flyers and inserts, in conjunction with loyalty programs, web-based information, and perhaps e-mail, mobile communications, and social networking tools.
Secondary advertising in the form of ride-along inserts with bills and statements is the most prevalent form of print-based direct marketing for transactional mailings. In recent months a great deal of attention has been paid to transpromoóadvertising printed directly on a customer’s statement. Thus far, however, the reality has not lived up to the promise.
In next month’s final article of this series, we will examine non-print direct marketing and integrated cross-media marketing. The ”Trends & Future of Direct Marketing” research study was published exclusively for members of PRIMIR, the Print Industries Market Information and Research Organization.
