The Power of Remails
An extremely effective tactic with direct mail is the concept of Remails; the practice of mailing an audience again. Not dissimilar in theory to how brands think about any marketing. It is rare to email a consumer just once or serve just one display ad to a consumer. Marketers typically re-email or re-serve messages multiple times. Repetition is a key tactic to use in advertising to build brand familiarity. As with any marketing program, we need to be smart about how we remail and to whom we remail. NaviStone offers several remail opportunities.
Multis: When NaviStone provides data for a scheduled event, this data will go into a merge process to make sure any duplicates (multis) are merged into one record and prevent a consumer from receiving more than one identical direct mail piece. But, we know this data is valuable because they were selected by more than one source. Remail them a second time with a more personalized piece and increase your likelihood of a conversion.
Recent buyers without email address: Advertisers will have some type of PII on their customers. Maybe they have an email address. Maybe a postal address. Maybe both. Maybe they had an email address at one time but now don’t. It is common for marketers to utilize email addresses and send a triggered email to a customer or lapsed customer after they have visited your site. What about those customers for whom you don’t have an email address? You can still retarget to them, through direct mail. NaviStone can take those same customers and match to a postal name and address and send a triggered direct mail piece.
Same season prior year: Could it make sense to mail a site visitor who browsed your site and scored high at this same time of year, last year? Take for example a seasonal advertiser. If cookie 123 visited your gift site last year in preparation for the Holiday season, it is likely that they will be in the market for gifts this holiday season as well – even if they didn’t buy. Maybe they remembered your site, maybe they didn’t. Mail this strong audience from last year, this year.
For more information on SMART audiences to remail, please reach out to your client partner.
Walking a Mile in Nisolo's Shoes:
Lessons of Direct Marketing Through the Pandemic
As every marketer knows, 2020 should have been coined “The Year of Adapting”. No one knows this better than the hand-made shoe brand, Nisolo.

In this webinar, executives from Nisolo and NaviStone will discuss how this retailer met the challenges of 2020 by testing and adapting (and generating an 8:1 ROAS!) with direct mail retargeting and how they are applying their lessons learned in 2021.
Key topics include:
