Political Direct Mail: What You Should Know

 In Direct Mail

Direct Mail Is Successful Because Of Its Personalization

In a political campaign, the personal is political. Direct mail gives you the ability to personalize your message in a way that digital media cannot. Organize your campaign’s messages to specific sections of your audience and it will create influence with a deeper personal impact. If an individual feels that there is a personal connection with the mail or persuasive messages they received, they are more likely to engage and act with that message. 

Direct mail marketing gives you this ability to connect on a deeper level and in a more targeted and strategized way. If each marketing mail packet received by a voter would make them feel connected to your campaign’s candidate. This will more likely make it possible for them to trust your campaign and wind up voting in your favor.

This is significant because, in this type of test, values greater than 1.0 are indicative of broad in-market success.
