The Mailing People have seen several digital marketing companies revise their strategies since the new legislation and consider direct mail as a more viable strategy. Direct mail has taken a back seat since email marketing came to the fore and many companies see direct mail as costly in comparison. But with new, stricter rules around email marketing it looks as though direct mail is making a comeback.

GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) has not affected the service of direct mail marketing and the ICO has supported direct mail by stating that unlike email, companies that use postal marketing, will not need the consent of the recipient. This means it is far easier to send flyers or leaflets to a targeted demographic than to get their consent to join a mailing list. The Mailing People may be the first direct mail company to state an increase in sales since GDPR, but this is a trend that is set to grow as businesses recognise the implications of GDPR.

Kristian Harrington of The Mailing People, said:

“Since GDPR came into force, we’ve actually seen an increase in enquiries for direct mail and June saw a 37% increase over the average.”

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
