Make Your Marketing Pop! Customization And Personalization In Print

When you create marketing materials to distribute to your customers, you need it to feel like you’re speaking directly to them for maximum impact and conversions. But how do you achieve this? Through customized print marketing campaigns, of course! Your audience is a unique customer segment, meaning you need to start treating them as such. That’s why we’ve pulled together everything you should consider to help make your marketing pop in your next print campaign, along with highlighting why customization and personalization in print are so important. 

The Rise of Digital Printing 

Before we dive too deep, we first need to look at the rise of digital printing. As the name suggests, digital printing is a method of printing from a digital image directly to a variety of media. Since its inception, digital printing has played a significant role in creating personalized marketing materials because it enables businesses and brands to create highly customized and targeted materials. Whereas other older printing methods (such as letterpress or even screen printing) only allowed for printing to be duplicated, with digital printing, businesses can adjust their font, designs, colors, and imagery with just a click of a button. 

And this customization has changed the modern marketing game. For example, at Tulip Media Group, we offer newsletters, magazines, brochures, and more as part of our custom print marketing campaigns. So, let’s say you’re a small start-up business wanting to get your name out there, but you don’t want to invest in a quarterly magazine. In this case, you might decide to work with our team to generate a personalized newsletter that features information about you, your business, and your services, as well as educational content that your audience will connect with and find useful. In the end, it all just depends on your organizational goals and personal preferences. 

Design and Creative Elements 

Now that you understand the rise of digital printing and how it has evolved from older forms of printing, it’s time to look closer at how digital printing allows businesses to customize their design and creative elements. If you have a business yourself, then you know just how important the fonts, colors, designs, and imagery you use are to your brand. Establishing these elements in your brand’s toolkit allows your customers to recognize your business no matter if they see you in person, online, or in print. However, as we mentioned above, it wasn’t always possible to bring these personalized elements into your print marketing campaigns until the creation of digital printing. Nowadays, businesses can flex their creative muscles (or partner with a marketing agency like Tulip Media Group) to create standout materials that not only catch the eye of your ideal customer but keep them reading to the end. 

To exemplify our point, let’s look at the difference in the creative elements between two of our Client-Partners, Petra Coach and JGS Insurance. Both businesses work with us to create custom magazines that inform and inspire their target audiences, but the resulting materials look vastly different due to their contrasting goals and branding. For example, the latest release of Petra Coach’s magazine, PetraPost, utilizes their orange branding throughout and features significantly more advertisements than JGS Insurance’s latest issue of their Risk & Business Magazine. Although JGS’s magazine also has orange throughout, it’s balanced by their brand’s blue color along with some other complementary colors. And then, of course, the messaging in Petra Coach’s magazine targets business leaders and entrepreneurs, while JGS’s magazine is geared towards organizations needing insurance support. This all just goes to show that what works for one business won’t necessarily work for you, and that’s why we offer our personalized print campaigns in the first place. 

Benefits of Personalization 

Finally, the moment you’ve been waiting for: a look at some of the benefits of personalization when it comes to print marketing materials. We’ve already alluded to some benefits, but let’s explicitly outline some of the top ones here. For starters, personalized marketing can lead to higher engagement and conversion rates since customers are more likely to respond to content that is relevant and valuable to them. Furthermore, businesses that deliver personalized content not only position themselves as an authority within their industry but can actually help customers feel more confident in their purchases, thereby increasing their client acquisition rates and sales. 

And it doesn’t just increase your client acquisition stats but it can also improve your customer retention rates. Personalized marketing helps businesses build stronger relationships with customers, which results in increased brand loyalty over time. So, what does this mean for your business? By providing a personalized experience, you can create a stronger emotional connection with customers and increase their likelihood of returning for future purchases (or telling their friends!). Not to mention, personalization creates a better overall user experience, which helps drive performance and gives you a competitive advantage over others in your marketplace. 

Just look at our Client-Partner, Blomidon Nurseries, for example. Before working with Tulip Media Group, they were struggling to create promotional materials that would help them drive sales and outperform other local garden centers. After partnering with us for help with their print marketing (among other areas), they saw a 44.5% increase in organic traffic as well as an improvement in their lead generation and brand awareness. Here’s a bit about what they had to say regarding working with us: 

“Worked with these folks for the better part of a year working as a marketing coordinator within a business. They did fantastic work, were punctual, very transparent, precise, and best of all—they delivered results. . . . Very impressed with their marketing/business philosophy and methods.”

First of all, aren’t our Client-Partners the best? And secondly, it’s your turn to see results like this!
