Digital Handwriting in Action
To better paint a picture of what this technology can do we’re going to walk you a great campaign created by one of our customers in New Zealand. Action HQ, a direct marketing agency in Auckland, created an omnichannel lead generation campaign targeting the top marketing masterminds in New Zealand.
Working with renowned chef and author Brett McGregor, Action HQ created an event called ‘My Team Rules’, which was designed to be a fun networking event and cooking challenge for the top marketing managers in the region.
To invite participants to the event, Action HQ sent out a direct marketing package which contained a cover letter, a personalized cookbook, a link to register for the event and form to call out their food preferences and cooking level.
The cover letter, address label and return address label for the package were all printed using distinct handwriting technology – enabled by the handwriting.io integration using XMPie’s platform. The company was able to pick a handwriting style that added an authentic, yet special personalized flair to key package elements.
Each recipient also received a personalized copy of MasterChef Brett McGregor’s latest cookbook, CHOP CHOP. The cover was personalized with the names of the recipients and Brett personally signed each copy.
Upon arrival at the event, the participants even received a personalized ‘My Team Rules’ themed apron.
The response to the campaign was resounding, achieving an 88% conversion rate just one week out from the event. Recipients were impressed by the level of creativity and innovation used to create the direct marketing pieces.
