Project Description

Objective:

In 2017, Fresh Nous was selected to develop a series of direct mailings to target HS2 contractors. The design and print finish created a unique and eye catching set of creatives and used features such as spot UV and gilt finishes.

The targeted campaign supported the overall business objectives of: Increasing brand awareness, positioning Zone Manager as the ‘Gold Standard’ in Delivery Management Software and implementing autonomous (self-service) use of Zone Manager with ‘Foundation’ offering.
The campaign was well received, increasing spontaneous awareness of the brand amongst the target audience and delivering additional organic website traffic and engagement across other channels such as social media.

from use of direct mail marketing. By reaching out to customers and prospects across multiple channels organisations can drive engagement, develop leads and increase brand awareness. When direct mail focuses on brand awareness it can become an effective channel to embed the name and brand attributes of a company with a targeted audience.
