How Newsletters Bring a Rock-Solid Return

In the early 1990s, one of the leading direct response fundraising agencies was the Domain Group, based in Seattle. The company was known for record-breaking fundraising campaigns, generating $40 million a year in billing for clients like The Salvation Army, The Lance Armstrong Foundation, and Prison Fellowship. One of its legacies was the “Domain Formula,” a painstakingly researched-focus approach on the most effective format for printed newsletters. While formerly print newsletters had been a “money-losing necessity,” these experiments tightened content and enhanced presentation so effectively that many organizations found their newsletters generated greater response than all other direct mail pieces.
