Direct Mail’s Positive Impact on the Younger Audience

In the digital age direct mail drives engagement with millennials.

That statement may seem like a contradiction of common knowledge but it is true based on recent reporting. The average American devotes about 10 hours a day to screen time but the digital landscape is fragmented with multiple platform and channel options making it difficult for marketers to stand out. Direct mail is proving itself effective at grabbing the attention of the younger audience.

Millennials are more likely to interact with direct mail than previous generations.

This younger audience will scan, sort, read and share the mail they receive, providing a captive and coveted audience for marketers.

Yes millennials do spend a lot of time on devices, but the data shows that if you are trying to reach this generation direct mail should be part of your omni-channel marketing approach.

NFocus provides multiple targeting options to help you reach this audience and stand out including our Consumer Household database and the Automotive Direct file. Contact your Account Manager or email us for more information on targeting options for your next direct mail campaign.
