A Few Tips to Make Remarketing Work Even Harder

Go from Digital to Analog

The best direct mail campaigns come from successful email marketing. Why? Because open rates for direct mail run higher more often than email.

Test and Track

Create an A/B test with as many mailers as possible. A/B tests provide a strong idea of what is working and what isn’t.  Then, you adjust your tactics accordingly. Additionally, create accurate methods to calculate conversions.

You can do this several ways, such as:

  • Only include a single CTA on each mailer.
  • Use unique promo and tracking codes.
  • Provide separate landing pages.

Make it Personal

Above all, make the mailer content personalized to the specific customer.  Research shows that personalized promos per customer perform better than standardized mail.
