Direct Mail LandscapeTop 20 Acquisition Mailers, Jan – May 2008

GEICO mail dominated mailboxes nationwide as the company mailed nearly three times more acquisition campaigns than the second top mailer, State Farm.

GEICO ranked #2 among acquisition emailers in the Auto Insurance category (48 unique email campaigns) behind The Hartford (62 unique campaigns) from January to May 2008. “Not specified” was removed as the #1 position in acquisition mail.

geico executive summary
Geico Executive Summary
  • GEICO continues to rank as the top acquisition direct mailer, while ranking #2 in the email channel behind The Hartford. State Farm ranks as the #2 direct mailer.
  • In review of the direct mail control packages from GEICO, Comperemedia found that none of the top 5 campaigns utilized the gecko. On the other hand, the gecko was used heavily via the email channel (follow-up acquisition mailers). Also, GEICO used the same control packages in 2007 and 2008 via direct mail.
  • GEICO diversified their mailing types in 2008 by moving into Win-Back, Loyalty, and Renewal Mailing offers
  • For 2008, GEICO is not currently using incentives to attract new customers (although they have in previous years)
  • GEICO’s top 5 control campaigns strongly drove readers to
geico executive summary1
Geico Executive Summary
  • Comperemedia began tracking the acquisition “Caveman” campaign from GEICO in February of 2006 within Direct Mail and in December 2007 for email. This acquisition direct mail campaign has really come on strong since April 2008. With nearly 1 million campaigns in 2006, Comperemedia saw a lull in 2007 and a surge in 2008 with nearly 2 million campaigns mid-year. GEICO uses the caveman in customer communication emails only!
  • In the first two quarters of 2008, Comperemedia saw an uplift in the amount of Watercraft/Motorcycle/RV/Aviation mail from GEICO. The volumes more than doubled in Q1 2008 compared to Q1 2007. Also, GEICO used the Caveman icon heavily in these mailings.
  • As you will see, GEICO segments the market with direct mail, but not obviously through the email channel. In 2008, the gecko is the mascot of choice within acquisition emails. 72% of all acquisition emails from GEICO contained the gecko.

Youth Segment2007
  • GEICO relates to the youth market in this campaign through the use of images (skiing), pie charts and compassion: “Living on a budget can be tough”
  • First seen in August 2006 (test), this campaign was sent mainly in 2007 and was recently picked up again in March/April 2008
  • Media ID 20060915-645
hispanic segment 2007
Hispanic Segment2007
  • Comperemedia has recorded over 5 million pieces for this GEICO campaign which has run from July 2007-April 2008
  • While GEICO does change strategy when marketing to the Hispanic segment, they did not send any Spanish or English/Spanish mailings to prospects or clients (as they have in years past).
  • They use only a few phrases in the Spanish language, such as “Remember, any way you say it, everybody wins with GEICO”
  • Comperemedia noticed that the gecko mascot appeared more to the Hispanic segment compared to the general market
  • Media ID 20070817-1953
