Southeastern's Addition of TrackMail+
July 2017—Southeastern announces TrackMAIL+, a new addition to the company’s direct mail offerings. This feature will improve our direct mail client’s success rates and boost ROI by providing precise, real-time mail tracking through the use of an Intelligent Barcode, social media follow-up through Facebook, and interaction call recording.
One of the most dynamic features of TrackMAIL+ is the online follow-up ads. Through our partnership with Google, text and image ads matching your direct mail piece follow your website visitors around the internet after they leave your site. If prospects don’t take the desired action (fill out a form, buy, etc.) on your website the first time, you stay in front of them until they do.
Contact Cathy Brewer, Strategic Sales and Mailing Domain Expert at 954-275-1893 or your sales executive for more information.
