Learn how the application of automation to your communication efforts can improve response, enhance brand and drive customer satisfaction. We bring together three different organizations that use automation to review the topic. You will hear from a marketing solutions company that combines various media to fulfill their customer’s needs. Included commentary from a collections agency where communication is government mandated and accountability plus auditing is critical. And finally, input from a membership organization that integrates communication with their web site to improve service to their members. Included in the discussion are two other major participants including a service provider that specializes in automation for the mail stream and of course the country’s distributor of mail - Canada Post Corporation.
While traditional media is viewed by the majority of consumers to be more trustworthy than digital media, it falls short in its ability to be agile. By using technology to drive sophisticated and personalized communication, clients have the ability to create a relevant, meaningful and trustworthy follow-up (or concurrent message) that can be mailed within 24 hours of customer inquiries, sales, telephone or online activity.
Gain an understanding of the benefits of trigger marketing, programmatic mail, and Mail Automation Processing and the nuanced differences between the various terms. This will help you understand and assess the process that could be best for your needs and allow you to appreciate the technology (in layman’s terms), benefits and opportunity to drive revenue, donations, response and satisfaction by technology.
Who Should Attend
- Marketing Managers looking to enhance their response and engagement.
- Production Managers who may be looking for ways to streamline their current process to reduce costs, errors and delays and at the same time create quick reactions to triggers.
- Anyone who needs to:
- Find effective ways to reach their audience
- Deliver the message quickly while the contact is still relevant or the ‘iron is hot’
- Create self-sufficient programs that don’t require added time and effort
