Tips for mailing to Germany

Tips for mailing to Germany

German companies spend 32% of their communications budgets on fully address promotional mailings, and 9% on partially or unaddressed promotional mailings, showing that the population are still taking notice of direct mail. German consumers respond better to addressed promotional mailings, and matter-of-fact language with a clear reasoning behind the message you’re sending.

In 2009 there was an amendment to the Federal Data Protection Act which has put restrictions on companies sending advertising mail. According to the new law, consumers must actively agree to their address data being used, with few exceptions. There must also be a ‘proof of origin’ giving consumers the opportunity to prohibit further use. 

You must also consider how the address in laid out; where it's placed on your mailing piece and which salutations you should be using. Our teams can help you with them, and other obstacles, when planning your mailings.
