With direct mail, you're going to be seeing response rates more like .2% - .5%. I mail close to 100k cards a year and have never seen a response rate (meaning signed up customers) about .6% and that one just happened to be timed perfectly.
Repetition is critical in direct mail, response rates tend to increase for the 2nd and 3rd mailings (within 2 - 3 weeks of each other) and then fall back off.
