According to Mindfire, Inc. and direct marketing studies, more than 42% of direct mail recipients prefer to respond online. A Personal URL (Purl) provides a convenient online response webpage for customers. Purl pages are the key ingredient to any successful direct mail and cross media promotional campaigns. Generated from a mailing list, Purls act as personal webpages where customers can interact with the site, take short surveys, answer open-ended questions, sign-up for newsletters or events, and provide valuable feedback. They are essentially providing you with necessary contact information, interests, and likes and dislikes.
As customers visit their Purl website landing page, our database software records their online activity. When they input their email address and contact information, that data is recorded and sent to you to evaluate. Purl pages collect survey results, email data, the time the customer visits your site, how long they stay connected, and what they did while they were there. All this information is then provided to you in the form of statistical graphed data and charted information, customized to display the information you need.
