Bloggers Tom Belford and Roger Craver of The Agitator are agitating their readers to submit their best-performing direct mail letters and packages. No critique, just the foundation of an online resource for colleague communicators and fundraisers.
So step up and submit your best-evers in direct mail, current or from the past. Submission details here.
So far, the agitators have shared two direct mail packages, both of which are great models:
- An invitation to make a legacy gift from the Nature Conservancy of Canada, which generated an unheard of 13% response rate
- A recent National Psoriasis Foundation package that generated an 18% response rate, and incorporated a query on how frequently recipients want to be contacted by NPF, a great way to generate goodwill at no cost.
I urge you to submit your direct mail packages that have done well. We have a lot to learn from each other.
