FabCom Drinks Their Own Kool-Aid: Integrated Dynamic Messaging
This year we at FabCom sent out our holiday cards in the form of direct mail and HTML, both with corresponding PURLs. Staying true to our core methodologies, all communications were cross-channel, dynamic and integrated. And of course… we tracked our results in real time. All was accomplished through the use and integration of a multitude of tools, programs and creative and tech-savvy mavens.
After receipt of FabCom’s holiday card this year, interlinkONE posted an article on their blog with their reaction. We’d like to share it:
A Holiday Card Worth Imitating
By: John Foley, Jr. | interlinkONE
Alright, before get too far in this post, I must say this: I received a lot of Holiday cards this year. And I loved them all!
But I just want to take a moment to highlight one that stood out to me.
The Holiday eCard from Fabcom
FabCom is an interactive marketing agency. I love their company and their staff for many reasons. They are energetic, creative, and extremely hard-working. And, they use interlinkONE’s multi-channel marketing software to help them build, manage, execute, and measure marketing campaigns for their clients, which also gives them extra points in my book.
They sent an eCard to a number of employees here that combined a number of things that I like: personalization, humanizing a brand, and gift-giving.
Within the email, they did a great job of including a human touch. As an agency, their people are among their most important assets. Thus, by exposing employees faces, they are helping to “open” themselves up to customers, prospects, and vendors. And of course, they did a great job of incorporating a humorous and seasonal touch.
The Landing Page
After clicking the link within the email, people were directed to a landing page. It incorporated video, personalized text, and information about the donation that they were making on the behalf of the individual the email was sent to.
When it comes to sending holiday cards, companies often have multiple goals. For one, they want to say Thank You to customers, prospects, vendors, industry leaders, friends, and others. But also, they want to do something that will help make an impression about their company on someone’s mind.
I think that Fabcom did a great job of this. They utilized multiple channels and medias to make the recipients feel special in a number of ways.
