Integrated Direct Marketing Campaign

Imagine: It’s your job to get your organization’s name more prominently visible to your audiences. You need to communicate with your clients and prospects about what you can do for them in an engaging way, regularly. Traditional direct mail marketing won’t cut it. Aside from the forest of paper wasted in enormous mailings, it just doesn’t give you the personalized approach you’re looking for.

'We wanted the program to inform our customer of our product offering, deliver the information in a way that was unique and appealing. Furthermore, the piece needed to be of a design that would permit us to send multiple segments over a period of time to the sale client, while reinforcing our superior brand. Someone designed and produced the piece which met and surpassed those goals.' Tim Verbic, RLRS

The Challenge

The Royal LePage sales force identified just this range of issues in the briefing Carolyn Rouse and Tim Verbic of RLRS provided to Someone in Fall 2008. They were embarking on a campaign that would target a specific and familiar list of clients and prospects and provide them with new information about updated RLRS offerings.

Royal LePage needed our professional expertise for a few things:

  • Extending the brand identity that Someone had created for RLRS in 2007 into the new marketing plan;
  • Making regular, personalized contact with a targeted list of clients and prospects;
  • Conveying timely and detailed information about the array of services offered; and
  • Generating sales leads and having the means to follow them up.

'We received positive feedback from clients who received the DM piece - they appreciated it because was creative, unique and managed to inform without looking or sounding like a "typical" corporate DM piece.' Tim Verbic, RLRS


All aspects of the RLRS campaign, including advertising, collateral and the mini-site, work together to extend the company’s identity and messaging.

And finally, the web mini-site itself provides:

  • Ongoing resource material for clients to consult when they are looking for assistance in their efforts to relocate employees around the world;
  • Pertinent information that can be updated internally and posted as the campaign unfolds; and
  • Automated announcements, audience feedback systems, and links to sales contacts to facilitate easy access and supply data for easy calculations of ROI on mailing and on the program as a whole.
