A great direct mail marketing example: Nice pants!

We are strong advocates of direct mail marketing and write often on this subject. Today we were the recipients of a direct mail piece from Pirate FM which we just had to share as a great direct mail marketing example. This is how to do it!

We’ve shown you our briefs… Now show us yours!

This is what we received:

Direct mail from Pirate FM
USB enclosure with direct mail

Why we loved this direct mail marketing example:

  • Receiving a parcel in the post is exciting, we just had to open it!
  • It is fun and on brand.
  • It is relevant to us.
  • It demonstrates creativity which is exactly the message they were trying to convey.
  • It included a useful branded gift (the USB) which we will probably keep. This will help keep the brand in our minds.
  • There is a direct call to action.

The only downside is that the pants are huge so no use as a stocking filler. Although they may come in handy for fancy dress at some point!
