A primary benefit of marketing automation systems is the ability to send highly relevant information to your prospect at the right time. The problem is that one marketing channel never works for everybody all the time.  While email marketing can provide great ROI, relying too heavily on it can have a significant negative impact on revenue growth.

Leaving direct mail out of your automated marketing program means you’re missing out on the following benefits:

  • personalization enabled by variable data digital printing technologies
  • being highly targeted
  • a long shelf life
  • stands out since your marketing piece is literally placed in your prospect’s hands

It doesn’t need to be this way. It is actually pretty easy to add a direct mail channel to your marketing automation programs. 

Direct mail can overcome many problems faced by email marketing. Correctly implemented it can be highly personalized and it is measurable.
