A quick fix

At the beginning of 2020, no one expected the entire business and personal front to change as drastically as it did when Coronavirus (COVID-19) reached the national pandemic level. In a few months, the way we all did business and lived our lives changed. People were staying in, quarantines began, and work from home became the new normal. Poolwerx quickly realized their most recent direct mail campaign promoting an annual sale no longer made sense. Rather than terminate the entire campaign, Prisma’s DM360 experts were able to quickly update and alter the message to reflect the changing times. Their campaign transitioned from a sale event announcement to letting their clients know that their business was essential and still available for their needs.

Data-driven decisions

Changing a campaign directly after the initial launch can be stressful, but seeing the results of this change doesn’t have to be. The DM360 dashboard used real-time updates to show Poolwerx how their new campaign messaging was doing in an easy to understand format. Knowing an accurate number of website visitors and ads displayed, partnered with knowing how many leads were generated at what cost, providing peace of mind amid challenging times.

Mail tracking provides peace of mind

With locations across multiple states, you want to know your message isn’t getting lost in transit. Through the DM360 dashboard, Poolwerx never had to guess where their direct mail was heading. Mail tracking features provided predicted delivery times and confirmed when each piece reached its destination. The reporting function allowed Poolwerx to search by city, state, and zip code, giving them detailed information on when the updated mail piece arrived or not. Knowing when each piece was delivered allowed them to understand their campaign results and see accurate impressions.

“We were already doing direct mail but we had no visibility over results. Using DM360, we were able to track mail delivery and phone calls generated. The integrated digital retargeting allowed us to increase the frequency of exposure to our marketing message, redirect customers to our site, and generate more leads via tools on our platform. And because it was digital, we had the flexibility to quickly change the ad message mid-campaign. Originally, our campaign promoted a short-term sale. When the pandemic forced businesses to pivot, we were able to change our creative message to inform our customers of the actions we were taking and the new services we were rolling out to continue to provide them with all their pool needs.”
