#4. Digital Canvassing

If you’re looking for digital advertising tools to expand your audience reach in 2018, this is a go-to. Take an address list, such as one in your company’s sales data or a direct mail list and target your customers’ neighbors with ads. This is the digital answer to yard signs and door-hangers. Digital Canvassing maps household IP addresses within 1,000 meters of each of the original households from a list. From here, we can then serve these neighboring households with online ads.


#5. Reverse Append

Retargeting meets direct mail. Reverse Append allows advertisers to deliver mail pieces to households 24 to 48 hours after any set of behaviors on a website have been conducted. Shopping cart abandonment? Send a mail piece with a check-out offer. Multiple visits to a specific product page? Deliver a message to close the deal. As digital advertising tools have boomed over the last decade and direct mail has declined, marketers are seeing an incredible resurgence in direct mail effectiveness given the decrease in clutter. Reverse Appending allows targeting of audience members who have already shown a propensity to purchase.
