Direct mail marketing, though old-fashioned for many, is still the most effective means of promoting a business, product or service.

Knowing the power of marketing and how different kinds of marketing techniques can help in achieving success, it is not strange why many businesses of different types rely on direct mail services. Nowadays, it is more difficult for consumers to learn about newly opened business in their neighborhood, new product or even sale and discount offers through traditional ways of advertising such as television or newspapers. This is mainly due to the fact that we all have little or no free time. And the free time we do have to watch TV or read newspaper, we all try to spend it as qualitative as possible listening and reading about the latest happenings in the country and world. And marketers are very much aware of this which is why they turn to mailing services as latest numbers show that over 75% of people still read their mails.
