  2. Q: What does Personalized Marketing mean and why should you care?

    A:Personalized marketing can be seen as the opposite of mass communications, where the message is broadcast equally to all recipients (sometimes called "blank"). Newspapers and mailed pieces to "Dear Customer" would fall under the mass category.

    is capable of conveying a unique message to each single individual. A classic example of a personalized piece of advertising that you might have been exposed to in the past is a postcard that comes in the mail from your car dealer reminding you that you are close to needing a 15,00-mile service

    The reason that you should care about personalized marketing is because your personalized advertising is focused and relevant to the recipient of your message

    Both research and our own recollection of data out of personalized marketing campaigns, show that personalized marketing produces rates of response in the range of 3% to 5% on the lower end, going up to double digit response rates. Those are significant numbers when compared to traditional direct mail marketint producing around 1% of response. Who are you and treat you in a more intimate way

    These findings show that the bottom line of a campaign can be significally improved when compared to traditional marketing campaigns.

  4. Q: Can you give an example of a personalized campaign that integrates with the web and provides measurement?

    Yes, please follow this example: You know that the particular individual that you are sending a direct mail piece to loves to play golf (because he's either a customer of yours, or because you've purchased lists that detail the favorite activities these people like). Therefore (let's assume that you're a financial advisor) it'll be ideal to relate your message with some benefit to your prospect in such a way that a high level of relevancy is created:

    So we are trying to connect the financial needs of an individual that likes to play golf. A message in a printed campaign could be something such as "Start investing in your retirement today" and an image of a retired person playing golf might be part of the piece mailed. There would be a call to action asking the prospect to act either by sending email, calling a certain number, or visiting a personalized website created especially for your prospect.

    Yes! A micro site that is unique to this particular individual that loves golf! If this individual were invited to visit HIS minisite such as that contained specific information about ways to plan for golf and retirement! In the privacy of his house, while browsing the internet. In an absolutely pressure-free environment!

    Data shows that many more people will take the time to visit that particular site. Once on that site, the prospect might express interest in a product or service in which case, a sales action will occur based on this particular individual's requests.

    Out of the people that respond through the web, or the phone, or a simple email, you've just increased the chances of contacting people really interested in your business.
