Case Study: Direct Mail vs. Email Invoices.
“Certainly one can’t beat the price of sending invoices by email. At least it appears that way, until one captures all the real costs of doing so.”
“When testing the letter versus email question, a Danish utility company was quite enlightened by the outcome. This Fresh Data Case Study will analyze the true costs of both options and present the quantitative results outlining which is really the most cost effective method. Possible spoiler alert, the results may surprise you.”
“The bottom line is that it cost the company $3.25 per customer to get paid by paper invoice and $5.75 per customer billed by email. That’s a difference of 42.8%.”
“Naturally, questions remain about the transferability of this experiment to other markets. For example, direct mail is pricey in Denmark. Each of those invoices cost Kr6 in postage, which is $1.06! But which way does that cut? Doesn’t it make the case even stronger in the US market where the invoice can go for under $.45, perhaps $.75 all in?”

If you have Gmail you’ve noticed recently that there has been some changes. Instead of getting all your mail to one inbox your mail is now separated into three categories: Primary, Social and Promotions.
This is where those of us that send out email campaigns for our clients might start to do this:
Not to worry. Take a deep breath. Things are not be as bad as that, for a few reasons.
1. Even though your open rates may suffer, the people who find your email in the promotions area will most likely take the time to interact with it be it through a click, an action step, etc.
2. If you are mailing to a “house” file you can encourage people to move your emails over to the “Primary” tab since if they are opting-in to get your content then your really shouldn’t be in the “Promotions” tab in the first place.
3. If you stick to what works well in designing a good looking email with a solid call to action, keep it simple and uncluttered and have a good call to action you will still have the advantage over the email marketers who’s 15 year old cousin designs their campaign in Microsoft Word.
4. People receiving emails in the “Promotions” tab now have the chance to scan and read these emails separately from the emails in their “Primary” inbox. This will give people more time and patience to sort through the promotion emails and give them the time and in some cases lack of time that they deserve. Since the emails are no longer clumped with the important stuff and they get their own space they will now get more time that just delete, delete, delete….
In short, keep an eye on your next few email campaign stats with an eye on the Gmail accounts see what if any affect the new changes have.
And breathe, don’t forget to breathe. The alternative is not so great.
Ever wonder what subject line to use for your next email campaign? Look no further!
