How Direct Mail Retargeting Works

Step 1 - QUALIFY your website

1 – QUALIFY your website

Confirm your business has the 3 metrics shared by successful Modern iO clients:

  • Average Order Value = $70+
  • Customer Lifetime Value = $300+
  • Monthly Unique Visitors = 5,000+

These aren’t absolute – but definitely covers the 80/20 of successful Direct Mail Retargeting programs in most industries.

2 – ENABLE 1st-party, cookie-based data

We help you enable a 1st-party, cookie-based foundation 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 problems of IP-based matching.

Step 2 - ENABLE 1st party cookie based data
Step 3 - TARGET your mailings

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.

We work with hundreds of clients and know how 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 is different – these prospects already visited your site and have some intent. Focus on getting them to take action… tell your story, highlight why you’re different (and better), and give them an offer they can’t refuse — you’re acquiring a new customer here.

Don’t sweat the design… our 30 years of experience can guide you, or do it for you.

Step 4 - CREATE the most effective Postcard
Step 5 - OPTIMIZE for best performance
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.
