Direct Marketing Production Printing & Value-Added Services: A strategy for growth


In a highly competitive and digitized world, the success and growth of a business can be attributed to its unique marketing approach and to being in the right place at the right time with the right message. Marketers are looking for the most efficient tools and resources that can make a significant difference to the sales and profitability of their business.

Promotion of products and services through direct campaigning can cut through the clutter and can be extremely effective and powerful for both small and large businesses. Marketers want to stand out and get noticed. The right media mix can involve a combination of several methods including direct mail marketing, direct response, mobile marketing, promotional letters, catalogs and personalized online advertising.

The versatility of direct mail over the years, combined with modern technology, means that it will remain a relevant marketing channel well into the future. While based on printed sheets of paper, direct mail marketing is combining technology to bring about the future integration of offline and online marketing.

With advances in technology, this benchmark InfoTrends study is designed to look at what the future holds for marketers, consumers and direct mail printers as well as the requirements for support from both equipment and software providers. It will explore how marketers want to leverage direct mail to effectively engage consumers.
