pURLs & QR
Typically, a personalized URL is embedded in a direct mail piece or any visual communication. A personalized URL is a web address that usually includes the recipient’s name (www.JohnSmith.domain.com). This personalized URL or web address takes the recipient to a personalized web micro-site related to a promotional offer or call-to-action included in the original piece. It often begins with a welcome and personalized survey page. The purpose of the survey page can be to validate existing customer information and/or seek additional information about the recipient with a goal of making future communications even more customized and personalized. This technique also links the email or direct mail print campaign to the web, where responses can be monitored and tracked in real-time. In addition, it allows the marketer to take immediate action once a recipient responds.
QR–or quick response–codes have been growing in advertising use for good reason. They have a relatively small footprint, and are easy to notice and implement. Found on everything from packaging to direct mail, QR codes can send text messages, redirect to a URL (or pURL), display some text, offer coupons, and create an interactive experience for your customers.
Direct Mail Benefits
Mass advertising (TV, print, radio, etc.) can be expensive and isn’t always an option for small businesses. But direct mail can focus on a smaller group of prospects who are more likely to respond to your offer, giving you more bang for your buck.
With direct mail, you can address your customers by name, speak to them individually, and appeal to their interests. And when customers feel that you understand their needs, they’re more likely to respond.
From letters, to postcards, to brochures, there’s a wide variety of inexpensive and easy formats available for your direct mail campaign. You can additionally add impact by including a special offer or free sample in the envelope.
Direct mail allows you to physically place your message in your customers’ hands and encourage interaction. Along with an engaging message, you can make an unforgettable impression by incorporating elements that actively involve the customer–such as stickers, samples, and coupons.
Direct mail is one of the few media channels that give you the ability to track the success of your campaign. It’s as simple as counting the inquiries you received, or counting the number of coupons redeemed. By tracking and analyzing your results, you’ll see what’s working and can then make adjustments to future mailings if needed.
It’s easy and cost-effective.
You don’t have to be a direct mail expert with a big budget to advertise with the mail. With a computer, some desktop publishing software, and a little know-how, you can create your own professional-looking mail piece.
