As many as 79% of recipients keep, pass on or glance at door drop marketing material; 38% keep it for at least a few days, whilst 13% retain it for a week or more.
71% of those questioned said they found free samples delivered through their letterbox useful; 66% said the same of supermarket offers, 62% of money-off coupons and 47% of new product leaflets. DMA research shows that consumers generally find promotional material delivered through their letterbox approximately 10% more useful than they did in 1995. Even among those who, in research, initially claimed to reject door drop marketing, 52-63% still said that the material was useful.
