Alpha Cross-Media Marketing Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Demystifying Cross Media Marketing for New Revenue Growth
  • 2. What is cross-media? A Cross-Media campaign is one that connects one medium to another.
      • Example: Adding a personalized URL on a direct mail piece connects the printed piece to the internet.
      • Recipients are marketed to using one channel, i.e. direct mail, email, mass media, and are given the option to respond using another channel (internet/landing page).
      • Various technologies such as PURLs, GURLs, QR codes, IMBs are integrated into the message to enable personalization, data capture, and tracking.
      • Response data is collected in real-time and displayed via an online reporting dashboard 24/7. This provides measurability and a quantifiable ROI.
  • 3. What is multi-channel marketing? Using two or more different marketing channels simultaneously to reach a customer and increase effectiveness of marketing campaign.
      • Direct Personal Communications - direct mail, email, sms
        • Leveraging important “unique” data about the person
      • Mass Media - Radio, Television, Web Ads, Retail signage, etc.
      • Social Media - Facebook, Linked In, Twitter
      • The concurrent communications reinforce each other and are funneled into a single data collection point (the landing page).
      • The goal is to generate a dialogue with the respondent and gather intelligence for future communications. Tracking is key.
  • 4. One dimensional is limiting
    • One dimensional marketing misses a large percentage of prospects that otherwise might respond to a campaign.
    • We need to “connect” with each person utilizing their preferred marketing method
    • InfoTrends reports that leading marketers today are using 3, 4, or 5 touches per campaign.
  • 5. Why connect to the web?
    • 66% of consumers responding to an offline advertisement visited the web site of the company advertised or a search engine to learn more, while only 14% called a phone number from the advertisement, the survey says.

    • Let’s review some real-life campaigns
  • 15. Allegheny College
    • National liberal arts college located in Meadville, PA
    • Student population of approximately 2,100.
    • Allegheny, like many colleges, had been treating its young alumni the same as the rest of the alumni population.
    • However, they were finding that this segment needed to be engaged in a different manner.
  • 16. The Challenge
    • A cross-media campaign was developed to connect with young alumni.
    • The goals of the campaign were to:
      • Increase the engagement level of young alumni
      • Increase participation rate from young alumni in the Annual Fund drive
  • 17. The Solution
    • Direct mail : A personalized direct mail piece was sent to all young alumni.
    • There were a total of 21 variables in the direct mail piece including copy and imagery.
    • The personalization focused on the recipient’s involvement at Allegheny, graduation year, and donor status.
    • Email : An email announcing the Top Class Challenge was sent to alumni just before the direct mail piece was delivered.
    • Two follow-up emails were delivered. The emails were personalized with 30 variables and gave updates as to which class was in the lead for the “Top Young Alumni Class” recognition.
    • Web: The direct mail piece and emails contained personalized URLs (PURLs) that alumni could visit. Once there, they were encouraged to make a donation.
  • 18. The Results
    • Allegheny College was very pleased with the response to this campaign.
      • Raised $3,725 from 66 donations to the Annual Fund
      • 32% of the donors increased their gift size compared to the previous year
      • Increased the number of donors from the young alumni segment by 11%

    • The text on the card directed the recipient to the personalized URL, and the first image the visitor saw was a class picture from his or her graduation year.
    • The site also gave a schedule of the events for the reunion and asked the person to register for the reunion online.
    • They were given a chance to win Boston RedSox tickets for updating information
