When people think of variable data as part of a marketing strategy, we generally relate it to contests and printed material. We think of things like a postcard received in the mail declaring “Congratulations Jane Jones, you’re the lucky winner of a trip for 2 to Cancun!”
Not just for print materials anymore, variable data, when combined with the right promotional product, can be an effective tool for optimizing your targeted marketing efforts. What exactly is variable data? Variable data today refers to a form of digital printing where information (text, images, numbers, graphics etc.) can change from one piece to the next. Variable data helps build your relationship with your customer through personalization.
Variable data can:
• amplify targeted marketing promotions
• create more customized marketing pieces
• strengthen the relationship with your customer through personalization
• increase response rates and times
Beyond just customizing names, variable data can come in the form of changing text and graphics to meet the needs of the company brand.
Here are a couple of promotional product team favorites, all available with variable data.
