The campaign audience

Baby Boomers are the post-war generation defined more formally as those born between 1946 and 1964. In 2020, they will be aged between 56 and 74 and account for nearly 14.3 million (21.3%) of the UK’s population. Our glorious pensioners are living longer. Their population is getting bigger, but they do need help and they need help in their own homes.

What is also a misconception is that Baby Boomers are not as active digitally as other segments but again that is a misnomer. 95% of Baby Boomers regularly use email and they have more time than most. Obviously we are big advocate of the power of direct mail but send a good proportion e-mail campaigns to compliment the campaign.

Digital media has had a major impact on both consumer behaviour and marketing communications.

As digital usage has grown, the core strengths of mail have not only endured but increased. Consumers are clear that mail and email have different qualities which make each suited to different things. Because consumers move seamlessly between the physical and online worlds, mail actually generates a great deal of online activity. Both mail and email are able to drive consumer action. Using mail and email together in a planned way builds on the strengths of each. This gives you the greatest chance of maximising the effectiveness of your direct communications.

Let us take a close look at the campaign.
