- Eligible mail includes automated Non-profit letters and flats as well as First class mail with a full-service IMB
Get actionable results
Launched by USPS in 2017, Informed Delivery combines the best of direct mail marketing with digital marketing to give you actionable results on your campaign. USPS customers who have enrolled in the service receive an email notification each day with images of the postal mail that will arrive in their mailbox.
Marketers can replace the basic black and white image USPS provides with a full color banner ad, images and links, which take the customer directly to the offer. If the customer is interested, they can click and act immediately online—in some cases before they even receive the physical DM package in their mailbox.
USPS continues to expand the capabilities of Informed Delivery, Now recipients can share offers on Facebook and X, formerly known as Twitter, as well as through text and email. This gives marketers an even larger audience, potentially increasing ROI and adding more leads to your prospect list.
Increase customer engagement
It’s no surprise that organizations incorporating Informed Delivery into their direct mail campaigns report a significant rise in customer engagement. This amazing omni-channel marketing tool helps direct mail marketers:
- reach more engaged customers—as of 2023, Informed Delivery reaches 54 million and that audience continues to grow
- connect with customers digitally through their physical address
- generate multiple impressions from a single mail piece
- get faster responses—prospects can respond immediately online
- potentially increase ROI on your campaign
- measure campaign performance to optimize marketing efforts
