    Electronic E-Blasts are falling out of favor, and Direct Mail is back, but the Rules have Changed

    1.  You cannot simply send someone a paper postcard and expect results.
    2.  Don’t spend all your budget on the mailing list, save some for execution of the message.
    3.  Your message needs to cut thru the clutter and give the targeted audience a memory that will last  
    4.  Technology on print has grown by leaps and bounds, are you up to speed on the all the changes
    5.  You need to make your print technology match your message to make a memorable experience.

    This is for distributors and Multi Line reps that need to make a favorable presentation to their new and existing clients that you Direct Mail as a vehicle for reaching their target audience. 

    You can be a first time show person new to the industry, or an experience PRO, the rules have changed and this seminar answers the questions to what is new in direct mail.    This presentation has lots of interaction with Video’s and interactive samples for all attendee’s.    It was the highest rated presentation at the USPS show in the Spring with 100% favorable comments.

    How to Create Email Content That Drives New Business

    Stats show for every $100 you sink into email marketing, you can expect an average of $4,425 back. While many factors impact the success of an email marketing program, content plays a critical role. But many marketers are unsure of what constitutes compelling content. Should it be educational? Personal? Focus on solving problems? Humorous? Packed with special offers? If you want to keep customers engaged and entice prospects to take the next step, the content in your email program must go beyond the typical offering of promotional merchandise at a discount.  

    This session will cover:

    •         The importance of analyzing your audience
    •         What constitutes compelling, substantive content
    •         Establishing reasonable email program goals
    •         Creating vs. curating content
    •         The value of editorial planning
    •         Tracking results

    Properly developed and executed, email programs deliver a high return on investment. This session will show you how a content-based email program will generate opportunities to develop new business. If you are considering an email program, or your existing program isn’t effective, don’t miss this session! You’ll walk away equipped with ideas you can easily and quickly put into action.
