Newsletter mailing for Mercy Ships Sweden – for more loyal donors

We have been producing newsletter mailings for Mercy Ships Sweden for 5 consecutive years. This mailing is a fixed part of the fundraising strategy and we send these out twice a year.

Aim of the newsletter mailing

The newsletter mailing enables Mercy Ships to engage donors more and to tell them the impact of their donations. For example, donors get to know more about how an operation went.

Contents of mailpack

The mailing consists of a letter, newsletter, and leaflet. We repeat the request for donations in the newsletter. The donor also receives a set of 3 cards.

The newsletter

The newsletter contains a testimonial from a Swedish volunteer, we hear from a doctor, and there are before and after photos of patients to illustrate the impact of donations. There is also an article about the option of leaving something to the foundation in your will.

Follow-up calls to donors

The mailing was followed up by a telemarketing campaign. We worked on this together with Swedish telemarketing agency Becksmo.

Has direct mail peaked?

Exactly how relevant is direct mail in an increasingly digital world?Whitepaper direct mail

Research shows that direct mail does, in fact, have added value alongside digital communication.

We at Mindwize love direct mail. Not only because it remains highly effective in attracting donations and retaining donors, but it’s also a great medium where sight, touch and interaction can be used to convey emotion and urgency.

We can tell you all about the benefits of direct mail. But perhaps, its best to let our research speak for itself.
