10@10 Networking Event with The DS Group

Tuesday 11th May 2021
10:00am - 11:00am


Direct mail ideas to boost your sales: Why physical mail still works, and how to use it. 

Essex Chambers of Commerce welcomes you to attend our first 10@10 Networking event. We will be joined by Allistair Hunter, Managing Director of The DS Group for a 10 minute talk on the advantages to your business of Direct Mail campaigns, followed by networking. 

When you think of a new marketing and sales strategy to boost your business in 2021, direct mail probably doesn't come to mind. In this unique virtual networking event, we discuss what direct mail is, why it is beneficial to both marketing and sales professionals, and how to create a successful direct mail campaign for your company in simple steps. 

We live in a digital world. Why would anyone send a physical letter or postcard to a lead when they can send an email and does it work? The answer is: yes - when used correctly. 

Direct mail still does work. In fact, a properly planned and executed direct mail campaign can be extremely beneficial and we tell you why ...

Direct mail still remains the core part of our work at the DS Group. With over 20 years' experience, we know how direct mail can work for you and your business. 

Here are some of the reasons why we recommend direct mail as the right choice for you: 

  1. Direct mail can easily reach households and other individuals 
  2. Direct mail is tangible 
  3. It's more personal 
  4. Direct mail offers chances of engagement 
  5. People appreciate effort 
  6. It's more formal than other marketing methods
  7. Direct Mail has the highest authority 
  8. People are more likely to trust Direct Mail 
  9. Direct mail has proved to provide a good ROI
  10. Bears more influence over buyer decisions
