The Offline Marketing Dark Horse

Catalogue printing and distribution isn’t falling out of favour. 85% of marketers plan to maintain or increase printed catalogue circulation. And for a good reason: overall consumer response to catalogue mailing has increased by 23%. It’s a dynamite strategy to:

  • Drive customers to your website
  • Introduce new products
  • Advertise seasonal products
  • Upsell by displaying goods in specific combinations
  • Build your brand awareness
  • Encourage long-lasting customer relationships
  • Target new customers

Take customer targeting one step further using Programmatic Mail. Specific customer actions drive email marketing – you can do exactly the same with catalogues and letters triggered by specific customer actions – abandoned shopping cart, for example. Your customers can receive relevant product information on their doorstep within 72 hours resulting in increased or recovered lost sales.
