Why Use Cross Channel Marketing
When effectively synchronised across channels, the same marketing budget can significantly raise brand awareness, boost purchase intent and considerably increase sales and response.
Implementing cross-channel campaigns allows you to reach and engage consumers or clients across print and digital media channels with highly personalised messages in content, presentation and timeliness in order to achieve enhanced ROI.
In many cases, marketers are already using different channels so there isn’t a real additional cost accrued. It’s less of an upgrade and more of a reallocation.
It’s about using the same marketing mediums differently, better and more efficiently.

Examples of Cross Channel Campaign Campaigns:
In today’s dynamic world, there are numerous channels, both online and offline, available to marketers in order to engage with intended or current customers.
This proliferation of channel options has meant that each channel needs to be assessed and appropriately integrated into the overall campaign strategy based on consumer preference and performance so marketers can create effective and relevant marketing messages.
Below is a brief synopsis of the most popular direct channels that can be used.
When creating an integrated campaign, the web is an integral and affordable channel. It facilitates the creation of microsites with personalised URL’s (PURLs) which provide a means of displaying customised information to each recipient. This in turn engages the customer with meaningful and relevant dialogue. As part of a cross channel approach, certain web features allow you to track, measure and monitor the behaviour of your consumer in real time. This enables you to respond to qualified leads immediately and manage customer relationships more effectively.
Direct Mail is a tried and tested channel that provides numerous advantages for those engaging in 1:1 communication. It allows you to target your message to a segment or captured audience and communicate relevant and engaging messages in order to build or maintain a relationship with individuals. Its tangibility and cut through means that it engages the recipient like no other channel can in order to be effective and ultimately drive response.

Mobiles are an effective means to receive messages anywhere anytime. Mobile marketing by definition is interactive, real-time and designed for the “on the go” consumer; it’s timelier than direct mail and more interactive than email. Text messaging is also unlike other media because it’s often used in tandem as a “campaign activator.” .
For numerous reasons, e-mail is the primary component of a contemporary cross-channel relationship marketing program, and has natural points of intersection with the Web and social media channels.
Compared to offline media, e-mail provides significant cost advantages, while delivering exceptional levels of intelligent personalisation. One of the key reasons for this primacy is that e-mail is a tool that allows marketers to actively control content, timing, context, brand experience, and customer contact frequency.
For marketers who have a large portion of their directly addressable market represented in an opt-in database of e-mail addresses, there is no higher-impact or lower-cost means of reaching customers to drive sales. At the same time, e-mail must work seamlessly within the overall cross-channel marketing mix – online and offline, inbound and outbound. It must also conform to the customer’s definition of what is an acceptable level of perceived “intrusiveness.”
Marketers need to move beyond the spray and pray approach and make emails more relevant
