Trade Show Follow-up

Advanced fulfillment services, direct mail marketing, and bulk mailing services

Situation: After announcing a new product release at a trade show, this major Fortune 500 technology manufacturer needed to quickly get the product DVD and literature into the hands of its customers.

Problem: Many companies struggle to effectively follow up after a trade show. This company wanted to put an end to those struggles. The regional office for our client had mailing lists from various data collection sources including names from existing customer databases, names collected at the trade show and a large accumulation of business cards from prospective customers---prospective customers that the sales team felt was vital to contact. If performed internally, merging the lists and performing overall mailing list hygiene would have taken several weeks, causing the company to miss the window of opportunity for quickly contacting people from the trade show.

Solution: Our client contacted Automatic Mail where our advanced fulfillment services, direct mail marketing services, and bulk mailing services performed bulk data entry, consolidated and cleaned mailing lists, and removed duplicates, assuring the highest possible quality. Plus, we created a personalized letter---a letter addressed to each recipient---and packaged it with the product DVD and literature then executed this highly targeted campaign.

Result: Our client was able to focus their efforts on sales lead follow up in the time frame that mattered most---when the announcement and product name was still fresh in the minds of their target audience. Equally important, we provided our client with a comprehensive and clean database of leads for telemarketing and any future direct mail advertising services that we would perform for them.


Reducing Costs for Publication Mailing

Bulk Mailing Services

Solution: Automatic Mailís bulk mailing services team worked closely with this publication to improve mailing list management while our 4-color printing team worked with the publication designers to make small, virtually undetectable adjustments to the physical size so that postage costs could be dramatically reduced.

Result: An enormous cost savings and the implementation of a continued cost control process.
