One of the most common questions Design Distributors representatives are asked is “How do I guarantee this campaign will be successful?” Although there are many approaches that ensure an effective campaign—including recommendations we’ve offered in previous blogs—the answer is typically “Include more variable data printing (VDP).”
This digital printing method personalizes direct mail at scale, utilizing the latest technology. According to a study by digital services and consultancy firm Infosys, 86 percent of consumers feel personalization has had an impact on what they purchase, while 25 percent say it has significantly influenced purchase decisions. In 2018, the ANA/DMA Response Rate Report found personalized unique landing pages (PURLs) to be the top direct tracking technique. These stats underscore the importance of incorporating VDP into every campaign.
So, how do you do it?
