Catalogues are a welcome addition to Australian Letterboxes

Home / Catalogues are a welcome addition to Australian Letterboxes


According to a 2010 national study by Sweeney Research based on 600 interviews, 89 percent of households are more than happy to receive a catalogue delivered to their letterbox, while 85 percent of Australians will read them.


Unaddressed mail is a common form of communication that is relied upon by retailers, small businesses and community groups as a means of informing households and businesses about products, services and community issues.


The study showed that consumers continue to believe unaddressed advertising mail is effective and much needed in the community.


Allowing retailers to engage directly with the consumer by delivering information about products and events to a home or business, it improves the quality and availability of product and price information helping consumers make better, more informed purchasing decisions at a time that is better suited to them. The unaddressed mail sector has achieved impressive growth over the last decade with an average growth of six to seven percent per year.


This is due to a number of factors:


  • – Unaddressed mail promotes economic efficiency through reducing search costs for consumers and promoting competition between retailers.


  • – It is the least cost and most effective way of communicating detailed product and price information.


  • – There are no real substitutes for Unaddressed Mail. Alternative advertising media is significantly more expensive to deliver and unlikely to achieve the same level of accessibility, targeting or coverage for the costs involved.


The Sweeney Study also found that Unaddressed Mail is an important advertising medium for small businesses as it allows them to cost effectively market to their local area.

7 Reasons to Use Print Marketing

Consumers are more engaged when reading printed material, unlike websites, which are often skimmed in as little as 15 second visits (Print Power, 2014).

A lot of brands take advantage of the creative potential of print marketing with many using innovations such as lenticular inks, holograms and scented paper.

When companies want to leave a memory in their customers’ minds, print is the strongest performer. People remember what they feel and see more than what they just hear (Bigelow and Poremba, 2014).

Print and digital work together and deliver optimal marketing results. Research consistently shows significant jumps in ROI when print and digital marketing tools are adopted across one campaign.

Print holds a sense of legitimacy. The fear of spam, viruses and privacy invasion is enough to make people wary of clicking. There is no imminent danger in picking up a printed brochure.

Because print is easily put down and picked up, it sticks around in the household or workplace, read again and again by others that come across it (Print Power, 2014).

Print increases online search – with websites offering a virtual sales person 24 hours a day seven days a week, print can help you bring
people to your virtual window.
