2. It’s fast- send thousands of messages to an audience within minutes. Plus preparation and schedule lead time is minimal
3. It’s measurable- with detailed reports and a savvy fax design- you can easily track response rates
4. Its tangible and actionable- generally printed on the fax machine and with the average fax being a 1 A4 page, your message can be clear, engaging and drive results
How To Drive the Best Results?
When using fax broadcasting as part of your marketing strategy, here are some components which are essential:
– Fax design is key! Design a fax to suit your audience, industry and potential recipient. What’s important to them? Does your design include key elements to drive action?
– Split test… Split test… Refine and Review. Split testing your fax design, components of your designs, offer and audience are all critical to ongoing success.
– Consistency vs. Overkill. While consistency is key for brand recognition, repetition and awareness, sending too much will have a negative effect. Understand your audience, monitor results and get the balance right. Try alternating marketing mediums to boost sales, remind customers and capture your audience.
– Consider the volume of faxes. Is your audience too small or too broad? Split testing here is key.
– Explore and reach out to new business by renting business fax and/or email lists while you are starting to build your own database.
How to Targeting New Audiences?
When targeting B2B lists it is important that your message is targeted, whether it’s industry specific or location specific, the more personalised and relevant the communication the higher the response rate. To gain brand recognition and test the market, it is recommended to split test multiple fax campaigns to a given target group. See what works and what doesn’t and try to make it measurable by using a fax back campaign, promo codes or other methods so you can track return on investment.
