Selectabase & Maileva Join Forces


Selectabase and Maileva join forces to offer a unique direct marketing solution, and if they don’t deliver you get free data, free printing, free fulfillment, and free postage.

Selectabase, the leading marketing data supplier, and Maileva, Europe’s leading hybrid direct mail provider have joined forces to offer UK marketers a unique direct mail marketing solution.

Not only that, if any mail is returned as undeliverable they will resupply fresh data and mail to that new address for free. That’s free data, free printing, free fulfillment, and free postage. We believe this to be a unique guarantee in the industry.

Pascal Brighi, Maileva’s UK Director commented, “We are really excited by our partnership with Selectabase.?? This means that customers can now order data, create their mailing, and get it produced and mailed all from one website.” He continued, “We are mindful that customers may be wary about buying mailing lists online, so we wanted to alleviate any concerns by offering a market leading guarantee”.

Steven Sellwood of Selectabase added “We are delighted to work with Maileva and we think that their online direct mail solution is so good that we are actually offering it to our customers too. SME’s in particular have been turned off from direct mail because of the hassle involved in creating a campaign and the cost. Typically there are many suppliers to manage from list brokers and printers to mailing houses and postal operators. But now thanks to Selectabase and Maileva, producing a direct mail campaign is quick, easy, and cost effective, you can do it all from your PC in a matter of minutes”.

Within Selectabase’s database there are 36 million households and 2.5 million businesses and these can be broken down by a wide range of demographics at the click of a few buttons. There is also no minimum quantity, so you can send test campaigns for just a few pounds, and if you get the desired response you can simply place a bigger order.

Recent research by MMC shows that direct mail ROI is on the up and open rates are at 91% compared to email acquisition open rates that are at 11%. It also illustrates that direct mail marketing can boost ROI from internet marketing and social media marketing too. Pascal concluded, “Direct mail has had to reinvent itself in response to online marketing. The Maileva ‘hybrid’ direct mail solution provides all of the convenience associated with online marketing tools, but the customer or prospect receives a physical, personal and targeted piece of mail through their letterbox, and excellent ROI can be achieved”.
