How Postcard Retargeting Works

How Direct Mail Retargeting Works

We work with you to set up your Modern iO Direct Mail Retargeting program.

Set Up Tracking

1. Qualify your website

Confirm your business has the 3 metrics shared by successful Modern iO clients. What you’re driving are new customers:

  • Average Order Value = $70+
  • Customer Lifetime Value = $300+
  • Monthly Unique Visitors = 3,000+

These aren’t absolutes, but if your website and business look like this model, your program should yield a positive Return on Ad Spend for getting a new customer.

2. Enable 1st Party cookie data

We help you enable a 1st-party, cookie-based “tag” that ensures your program is privacy compliant and has the highest Address match rates possible.

This means you can accurately connect with more of your lost website visitors without the hiccups and problems of IP-based matching.

Track Results & Optimize

3. Target your mailings 

Set filters to identify visitors who abandoned carts, visited top-converting pages, visited two or more pages, or live in the geographic areas you want to focus on.

Based on your site and business, we’ll work with you to best set up filters and rules so you can mail to an audience most likely to convert.

4. Create the most effective postcard

The layout and messaging for Direct Mail Retargeting are different – these prospects already visited your site and have shown intent.

Focus on the story of why you’re different, and drive them with response triggers and an offer they can’t refuse…and not the same for subscribing to your emails.

We know exactly how to design or guide you to create a card that will drive response.

5. Optimize for best performance 

Using the program performance metrics in your Dashboard, we help you evaluate your ongoing results – and optimize any of the key campaign leverage points.

Whether it’s who you target, which pages you target, the story told on your Postcard design, or your offer, we can help you identify what to adjust and develop the right testing strategy to optimize your program’s results.

“When I factor in Lifetime Value, it’s 19x Return.”

“There’s a gut-level reaction to seeing how many visitors left your site but could be mailed to each day. We are thrilled with the results. We’re now seeing 8x Return on Ad Spend. And, when I factor in Lifetime Value, it’s 19x Return.” Laurie Dunlap, Founder and CEO, Blue Canoe
