From Two to One: Costs Go Down
It’s a no-brainer when you consider that printing and mailing multiple communications to the same customer costs more. You’ll use more paper, which is currently seeing a sharp rise in pricing, and ink. It also requires more labor and postage fees. If you can go from two to one with telecom statement and promotional content, you’ll see a dramatic reduction in costs immediately.
You’ll also reap even more savings when you outsource to a transactional printer that has the capabilities to produce your mailings with a high level of accuracy and quality. A transactional-focused printer, like PCI Group, uses the best in equipment, technology, and processes to deliver impactful and compliant telecom customer communications.
Our costs remain competitive because we can bulk purchase paper and ink, receive more postage discounts due to volume, and use less labor. Whether you’re running an in-plant or working with multiple vendors for print and mail, you can reduce costs while improving the quality.
Other Reasons to Merge Telecom Promotional and Statement Content
Besides the cost savings, you can realize these benefits from combining communications.
Target different users with different messaging depending on how you segment.
For example, you may provide multiple services, but a customer only subscribes to one. You can promote the other services to those customers with a special message. You can cross-sell and upsell in a personalized way.
Promotional content on statements has a better chance of connecting with customers.
Separate promotional pieces like inserts end up in the recycling bin. Statements, however, receive more attention because customers must act on the billing portion. As a result, you can have better engagement. Customers open invoices and statements 95% of the time—much more than any other direct mail.
The impact is also measurable. You can tie the offer to a specific email address or phone number or use a QR code that takes users to a unique landing page. By doing this, you can count the number of conversions from the campaign.
Statement and promotional content design can be modern and easy to read.
If you haven’t redesigned your statements in a while, they might appear dated or hard to understand for customers. With WPF and dynamic printing, you can elevate the look of your mailings. You’ll be able to use full color, include features like graphs, divide the statement with lines and boxes, and more. There are no limitations to design!
