Direct Mail




Direct Mail

The Challenge

A thriving customer base is every marketer’s dream — and for one magazine client, converting free content users into paying subscribers was vision-critical. The publisher had one million registered website users, a direct mail subscription offer, and Alliant to help predict which consumers were most likely to respond.

Our Solution

With deep demographic, transactional and behavioral insights on the American consumer – Alliant built a custom model identifying 650,000 of the web registrants as potential prospects for the direct mail campaign.

  • Nearly 3,000 registrants were identified as being the best prospects for the direct mail offer (segments 1 and 2 of the model results)

  • An additional 80,000 registrants in lower score groups were identified as prospects who can be mailed profitably

  • The result was a solid target audience, a 63% decrease in campaign’s cost per order, and one happy client
