Measuring Direct Mail Success - Metrics You Need To Know

Direct mail can be an incredibly powerful marketing tool, but measuring its success can be a challenge. And as cost of living increases, budgets are put under the microscope, placing emphasis on ROI (return on investment).

As a business owner or marketer, you need to know which metrics to track to determine the effectiveness of your direct mail campaigns, and whether they're bringing in those all important leads or sales.

At Sorted Direct Mail, we’ve got the experience, tools and knowledge to help you report on the success of your direct mail campaigns - here are X metrics you should be aware of. 

Response rate

The response rate is the percentage of people who respond to your direct mail campaign. It’s one of the most important metrics to track, as it directly affects your ROI. 

The average response rate for direct mail is around 5%, but this can vary depending on factors such as the quality of your mailing list, the design of your mail piece, and the offer you’re promoting. 

Sorted Direct Mail can help you achieve a higher response rate by providing you with high-quality data that’s targeted to your ideal customer. 

We also offer professional design services to ensure your mail piece stands out in the mailbox and a range of innovative print techniques to make your message more memorable. 

Conversion rate 

The conversion rate is the percentage of people who take the desired action after receiving your mail piece. This could be making a purchase, requesting more information, or signing up for a newsletter.

Measuring your conversion rate allows you to determine the overall effectiveness of your campaign.

Sorted Direct Mail can help you improve your conversion rate by ensuring that your mail piece contains a clear and compelling call to action. We can also help you create personalised offers that resonate with your target audience. 

Cost per acquisition 

The cost per acquisition (CPA) is the total cost of your direct mail campaign divided by the number of new customers you acquire. 

This metric is essential for determining whether your campaign is cost-effective and whether it’s providing a positive ROI. 

Sorted Direct Mail offers competitive pricing and a range of profitable solutions that can help you achieve your marketing goals. 

We also offer a range of data cleansing services to ensure that your mailing list is up-to-date and accurate, which can help reduce costs and improve ROI.

Customer lifetime value 

The customer lifetime value is the amount of money a customer will spend with your business over their lifetime. Measuring this metric can help you determine the long-term impact of your direct mail campaign and its overall effectiveness. 

Sorted Direct Mail can help you increase customer lifetime value by providing you with the tools and data you need to create targeted and relevant campaigns that resonate with your audience.
