Effective marketing techniques make an impact on your audience so that they remember your brand and take the action that you encourage. At Ambit Creative Group, we’ve found that using variable data printing can be a very effective tool in making that initial connection with your audience. Sound fancy? In simple terms, variable data printing is a form of digital printing where you can change text or graphics from one printed piece to the next to create a personalized marketing piece for your specific customer. For example, sometimes you receive an email that say, “Hi Sally” instead of “Hi there” – variable data printing takes it a step further and speaks to recipients personally with customized text, imagery and offers based on their specific needs. (IE: a postcard with a person scrawling your name in the sand on a beach) Creating this personalization is key to grabbing the attention of your customer, making them feel like you understand their needs and getting the results you want. Variable data printing can increase response rates up to 7 times greater than conventional mail. Interested in learning more? Here are a few best practices when utilizing variable data printing:

Paper. It passes through our hands dozens of times daily and many of us are surrounded by piles of it. But because it's so common, it might be something you don't think too much about--unless you work here at Ambit Creative Group, of course.
