Tips for mailing to Spain

Tips for mailing to Spain

Direct marketing campaigns are extremely efficient in Spain: according to a survey conducted by Correos, 69% of private customers and 70% of business customers have bought a product or a service that was promoted by direct marketing. A total of 4,577 million personalised advertising texts were sent in Spain during 2012, every household received 263 addressed advertising texts.

The catalogue is the most popular offline medium. Both private as well as business customers pay more attention to catalogues than mailings. Catalogues are perceived to be serious and professional. They also improve the likelihood of a purchase being made and increase customer loyalty.

A Robinson list is maintained in Spain (Lista Robinson), which contains 45,000 addresses. It is managed by the Federación de Comercio Electrónico y Márketing Directo (adigital). There is no law stipulating that lists should be maintained. Each type of promotional literature must specify where the data comes from.

Spanish consumers greatly value brand policies. Particularly original and creative approaches in direct mailings are received well in Spain; a URL or microsite should be mentioned, as Spanish consumers like to obtain information about the product before they purchase. This is also how response rates can be improved.
