Disadvantages of P.O. Boxes

When sending direct mail to potential customers, you must analyze each and every part of your mailing. The envelope needs to be just right, as well as your ad copy and the positioning of the address. One item that is often overlooked in the direct mail industry is the return address. Many businesses list PO Boxes as their return address on direct mail. While this may be fine when sending mail to current customers, it is generally frowned upon when sending mail to potential customers. Typically, if a potential customer examines your direct mail piece and sees a PO Box which he or she does not recognize, they will quickly discard your direct mail. However, if you list a physical street address, or even an office suite, potential customers are much more likely to open your direct mail.
