Personalized URLs and Direct Mail

Response rates for direct mail with personalized URL's (PURLs) are nearly double compared with traditional pieces. Americans prefer to receive a marketing piece in their mailbox with the option to respond online.

Make your mail pieces more personal with a customized PURL. Response rates will climb when customers can go online and engage with your company from a personalized direct mail piece.


Digital Marketing Tools Customize Content to the Individual

Customers and prospects who log onto their own personalized web pages see content based on prior behavior, life stages, segmentation, and demographics. As these prospects view products, read, play videos, browse, click and purchase online, their activities are fed back in real-time to our clients via an online dashboard. These PURLs appear on your direct mailing piece with a URL such as “janedoe.unitedmail.com.” Customers can fill out a survey to give you individual information, including their email for follow up newsletters.
