Digital marketing meets modernized print

Embracing Cross Media

Print isn’t dead, on the contrary

In the last few years, digital marketing became more predominant leaving traditional print behind. That doesn’t mean the print itself disappeared, however. It evolved, to enable print service providers to keep up with the competition and situation on the market. So what happened?

Communications and media today are inextricably intertwined. As advertising agencies and marketing departments have begun looking for new ways to reach wider audiences, turning to print to provide new services above and beyond its traditional role, print service providers have realised the need for change, and focused their attention on expanding their range of products and services designed to address the latest marketing trends.

This has created a ‘perfect storm’ in which digital marketing has met modernised print, and together the two have created a baseline for transforming businesses and hitting targets once viewed as unachievable.

The sheer range of services that can now be provided with the latest printing technology and marketing is astonishing. The question, however, is how print service providers and marketers should work together towards a common goal, and how print, web, social networks, e-mail and SMS can be linked.

The answer is by embracing Cross Media.

Cross-media services

In this digital era there are good business reasons for communicating through multiple channels, and not just via paper-based media. The fast-growing cross-media sector offers traditional print service providers (PSPs) a great opportunity to offer their customers a genuine added-value service.

One particularly profitable area is inbound or permission marketing. The biggest benefit of adding cross-media services to your portfolio is that you become an all-in solutions supplier offering more relevant and effective communications through multiple touchpoints.

How your customers benefit from cross-media services:

  • More relevant and effective communications via multiple channels
  • Multiple touchpoints to reach their customers
  • Customised media mix
  • New business opportunities, e.g. in inbound or permission marketing

How you profit from cross-media services:

  • Generation of new revenues
  • Significant growth in profits
  • Creation of added value for your customers through multiple-touchpoint communications
  • Higher charges for the extra value on offer
  • Closer customer relationships

Offering your customers cross-media services not only extends your portfolio but also opens the door to more intensive customer relationships.
