Improve Your own ROI Along with Plastic Postcard Mailers

Barcode Tracking

By adding a unique barcode to each individual card mailer, not only are we able to measure your direct mail efforts, we can provide you with further data and measurement for use in your future direct mail campaigns.

How it Works

Embedded in each barcode are demographics specific to the recipient. After the card is redeemed by the customer, a standard barcode scanner is used to scan the barcode. ValCards uses this data to create you a customized Prospect Profile.

Demographics such as the age, gender, and income of the individuals who redeemed your card mailer are included in this report, which is given to you at the conclusion of your mailing.  Using this data, ValCards then creates a new mailing list for your next campaign.  Either mail to those who already redeemed the piece and see your redemption rates explode, or suppress the list and only mail to strictly new customers.  This will significantly enhance the ROI of all your future mailings!

Profile Your Prospects

We can tell you the following demographics about the customers that redeem your piece:

  • Age
  • Gender
  • Households with Children
  • Address Type Indicator
  • Homeowner/Renter
  • Household income
  • Marital status
  • Zip code
  • Length of Residence

Features & Benefits:

  • Measure the success of your direct mail efforts by tracking your redemption rates
  • Grow sales by basing your marketing strategies on facts instead of guesses
  • Increase your customer base by “cloning” the customers you already have
  • Save money by only mailing to customers who fit your Prospect Profile
  • Only reach new customers by suppressing the names and addresses of the customers who redeem your piece
  • Boost sales during “slow” periods by mailing to your existing customer base

Magnetic Stripe Tracking

ValCards Magnetic Stripe technology allows you to track redemptions and profile your customers using your existing POS system. Don't have a POS system? No problem. We work closely with POS providers to help get your company up and running.

How it Works

A Magnetic Stripe is a small strip of magnetic tape that is embedded on to a plastic card mailer and is encoded with data. Using a card reading devise, your point of sale system will recognize the card mailer's unique serial number. Your POS system will automatically add your offer to the purchase, as well as store information regarding the customer such as their age, income, and gender.

Variable Data Printing

Variable Data Printing (VDP) refers to making each plastic postcard unique with variable texts  without stopping or slowing down the printing process. This is done by linking information from an external database that holds the variable data to the digital document that makes the print. The printing data for each card is switched in real-time while our high-speed digital press is making each impression. This can make possible a broad range of  direct marketing opportunities.

That is why Variable Data Printing is extremely useful in producing  direct marketing pieces and engaging in direct advertising campaigns. Anywhere on the printed plastic card an individual  name or customer information can be displayed  thus personalizing the message directly to the customer receiving the mailing.     Imagine being able to create a mass plastic card mailer personalized for each customer. It is now possible with Variable Data Printing.    

Phone Tracking

There’s no smarter way to prove marketing ROI on direct mail campaigns than by using a call tracking number in your direct response advertising.

By assigning a different tracking number to each mailer, identify exactly which campaigns produce the direct mail marketing results you want. Use the call data to refine your direct mail campaigns and optimize marketing ROI.

Call Tracking

Convert more leads into sales by focusing on those that get better direct advertising response rates. Use this data to refine advertising campaigns and know what appeals to your audience.

Choose from a huge selection of 800 numbers, or appeal locally by selecting a local tracking number for your direct response advertising.

With smarter call tracking for direct mail, you can score the calls with a custom scorecard and set up goals around each campaign to measure and improve marketing ROI and sales performance along the lead cycle from the mailer to the way phone agents handle the call.

You have complete flexibility and control over your tracking number configuration: set preferences for tracking numbers, user groups, and advanced call routing options.
