How do we plan a circulation?

  • Start with your database

  • Maximise the profitable mailings to house file

  • Determine the available recruitment activity and the likely costs of recruiting buyers

  • Mail prospects to the point of acceptable cost per buyer

  • Buyers versus Enquirers

  • Recency: 0-6 months, 7-12 months, 13-18 months etc

  • Frequency: 1, 2, 3+

  • Monetary: 0-£50, £50-£100, £100+

Buyer circulation example

Buyer Circulation - Example

  • Mail all our buyers in first drop - 22,732

  • Remail all buyers in second drop - 22,732

  • Remail best buyers in third drop - 10,000

Prospect circulation

Prospect Circulation

  • Only time to consider lists here

  • Rank list history by the profit or loss of acquiring a new buyer

  • Determine cut-off point by pay back criteria

  • Maximise roll-out to successful lists remembering statistical variation in results

Ray Morris-Hill Associates


Payback criteria

Payback Criteria

  • What is an acceptable cost of acquiring a buyer?

  • Depends on propensity to buy again and the profit from those future orders

  • If I recruit 1,000 new buyers today and mail them my catalogue programme, how much profit will I make over the next 6 months?

Ray Morris-Hill Associates


Sample answer to payback question assuming 3 mailings in next 6 months

Sample Answer to Payback Question assuming 3 mailings in next 6 months

Mail Spring Catalogue Drop 11000 @ £15.00/book Demand £15,000

Profit £5,000

Catalogue Costs (£500)

Net Profit £4,500

Mail Spring Catalogue Drop 21000 @ £9.00/book Demand £9,000

Profit £3,000

Catalogue Costs (£500)

Net Profit £2,500

Mail Spring Catalogue Drop 31000 @ £4.50/book Demand £4,500

Profit £1,500

Catalogue Costs (£500)

Net Profit £1,000

Total Profit in next 6 months from 1,000 buyers is £8,000 - £8 per buyer

If it cost more than £8 per buyer to recruit, payback will be longer than 6 months
