Posted on Aug. 14, 2014 by @direct_cpc in Marketing solutions

Up to a third of the people you’re advertising to online might not be people at all.

When weighing the benefits of different advertising channels, recent Nielsen research* suggests that as much as 30% of digital ad impressions could be fakes. Read on to understand this issue and to learn about the high response rates and return on investment you can achieve with direct mail.

Response rates for digital ads may not be as they first appear
Many people are not aware that computer programs called bots are being used to mimic website traffic. The false impressions and clicks that are registered artificially inflate digital advertising metrics. The Neilsen research* suggests that online advertisers may only be reaching 70% of the audience they think they are reaching.

Direct mail is an effective marketing channel that delivers real results
By contrast, direct mail has long been a reliable and proven medium for reaching people with a tangible experience that delivers advertising results. With over 15.5 million business and consumer addresses in Canada, direct mail offers amazing reach. And sophisticated targeting options allow you to pinpoint a precise audience.
