What is Personalised Printing?
Personalised Printing uses data that you already have about your customers or prospects and places customer-specific text and graphics into a page layout created especially for your project. Each printed version is customised, containing unique information directed at a particular recipient.
Utilising industry leading image personalisation software, Same Day Printing can help you to target your direct marketing campaigns like never before.
Do I need a lot of detail on my contact list to benefit from personalised print run?
No. You’ll be amazed at what we can do with even the most basic data like name and address. Where you do not have a lot of specific information on a contact, we can gain their attention by integrating their name or company name into an image, relevant to your market, that draws interest, inspiration, or intrigue. We can thread the contact’s name throughout the content and even include a map that directs them to your office, store, or event from their location.
While data is important, one of the key benefits of Personalised Printing its ability to integrate response mechanisms that build upon the data you have with each communication.
Why is Personalised Printing and One-to-One Marketing so successful?
With the content of each mail piece addressing each recipient’s specific interests and concerns, you can be sure that, when they see your correspondence, it will be immediately relevant, sparking interest, and increasing response rates. Developing an ongoing conversation with your customers & contacts, personalised marketing helps you:
- Create one-to-one dialogue with your audience
- Cut through the clutter and hold your target’s attention with variable images and customised graphics and messages
- Foster loyal relationships with relevant, personal communications
- Integrate tracking mechanisms in your campaign
- Adjust future messaging and offers based on past results
Personalised direct mail campaigns provide uniquely individualised messages that generate attention, heightened response rates (often over 35%), improved brand recognition, and substantial increases of return on investment.
Why use Same Day Printing?
Gone are the days of wastage and lost opportunity where direct marketing was restricted to printing thousands of the same flyer, possibly personalised with a name and address, and hoping that some of them hit the mark. Working with your data list, Same Day Printing can target your audiences and individualise content and images to align with elements like age, gender, and buying preferences. Standard personalisation elements such as name and address can be used in the traditional way or built upon to further captivate your audience by embedding their names in images or providing a map from their location to the address of your store, office, or event.
With in-house marketing and communication expertise you can feel comfortable that we understand the marketing objectives behind your project.
Personalised marketing has been proven time and time again to provide a much higher return on investment than traditional direct marketing, but it does require more strategic thinking to ensure you get the most from your project.
