  22. 22. Mobile Web Sites<br /><ul><li>Samples</li></li></ul><li>Mobile Web Sites<br /><ul><li>Samples</li></li></ul><li>Mobile Users Interact with QR Codes<br />A 2d barcode with embedded data such as web site URLs, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, calendar events, etc.<br />QR code is short for Quick Response code.<br />Numerous barcode and QR code scanners are available for free in smartphone app stores.<br />Once the QR code is scanned the smartphone will automatically launch the requested web page, call the embedded number, draft an e-mail, etc.<br />NO TYPING REQUIRED<br />
  23. 23. How do they work?<br />Install a free QR Code/Barcode app. Then….<br />
  24. 24. Do people use QR codes?<br />During the last six months of 2010 QR code scanning increased 1,200 percent across North America. (Source: Mobio Identity Systems, Inc.)<br />The same report showed:<br />The majority of QR scanning is coming from individuals in the 35-44 years of age bracket (25%). <br />Steady adoption is being seen amongst all age brackets between 18 and 54 years of age (84%).<br />Women show more interest than men in collecting information on products and services, entering contests, and making purchases using their smartphone. <br />

  49. 49. Transpromo Statement Marketing<br />What is Transpromo?<br />Transpromo is a compound expression formed from the words "transaction" and "promotional". <br />By adding relevant messages, you can piggyback targeted promotions and advertising onto existing transaction-related documents, such as statements.<br />Transpromotional documents combine and data mining and business intelligence technology with variable data printing.<br />TAKE ADVANTAGE OF “FREE” POSTAGE!<br />Include targeted advertising with your statements<br />
  50. 50. Does Transpromo Work?<br />How many people actually look at their statements?<br />Would you believe these numbers?<br />According to a 2009 survey performed by the United States Postal Service, 95% of people will read their monthly statement at least once, spending an average of 3 minutes reviewing the statement.<br />A September 2009 Survey by InfoPrint (a joint venture between Ricoh and IBM) found 83% of respondents always open bank statements received in the mail.<br />A 2010 Survey by PitneyBowes reports 73% said they would open and read financial/bank statements right away.<br />
  51. 51. Does Transpromo work?<br />Will people look at ads on their statements?<br />64% of respondents to a recent survey by Zoomerang and InfoPrint said they would use personalized coupons if printed onto monthly bills and statements (with nearly half responding that these would encourage brand loyalty). <br />Compare this to the DMA 2010 Response Rate Trend Report that says nearly 60 percent of direct mail campaigns in financial services aimed to produce a direct sale. The average response rate was a comparatively low 2.66% to a house list and 1.01% to a prospect list. <br />Onserts (ads) printed on your statements will get read.<br />
  52. 52. Statement Onserts<br />
  53. 53. More Transpromo<br />Statement Letters<br />Include personalized direct mail letters as the first page of your account statements.
