DoubleClick/Abacus Direct

  • CLEAREDGE CAMPAIGN
    This campaign was developed to spur sales for the ClearEDGE project and had more than a 15% response rate!  The high-touch mailer included a direct mail piece which described the product's features, functions, and benefits, and also included a nice writing pen in a branded box; however, only half of the pen was included.  The call-to-action was to contact Abacus for the other half and to set up an appointment.
     

  • FASTPATH CAMPAIGN
    This campaign was developed to create awareness and generate sales for a new product.  It was designed as a three-part campaign that was mailed over a three-month period.  Each piece was a high-impact mailer that centered on a car theme and included a savvy giveaway that tied in with the messaging and design.

    PART ONE (included a pair of leather gloves)
     

    PART TWO (included a pair of fuzzy dice)

  • TRAVELOGUE

    • Cover (Note that this a very large file, so the download make time some time.)

    • Inside Pages (21 pages)

      The Travelogue was developed as part of the ClearEDGE Product Launch Campaign.  More than a brochure, this custom booklet was printed on a tan-colored SuedeTex paper stock with a sage Touche' stock for the inside pages. 

      Additional printing elements included a debossed logo, vellum letter, tabbed content pages, notes pages, and a folder flap in the back!  The tri-fold piece was bound by a spiral binding.  The piece also came with a passport.

      Most definitely the savviest piece we've created to date...

  • CLEAREDGE CAMPAIGN - DIRECT MAIL -PART 2 of 3
    The second part of the campaign included two personalized tri-fold direct mail pieces that presented more product detail and discussed further benefits of ClearEDGE, a new marketing database solution for catalog and specialty retailers.
     

  • CLEAREDGE CAMPAIGN - TRAVELOGUE - PART 3 of 3       [ click here for a photo ]
    The third and final part of the campaign was a personalized, customized travelogue.  This custom booklet mimicked an actual travelogue in size and theme.  The piece was printed on a tan-colored SuedeTex paper stock with a sage Touche' stock for the inside pages. 

    Additional printing elements included a debossed logo, vellum letter, tabbed content pages with folder flaps, notes pages, case studies, and a passport!  The piece was bound by a spiral binding. 

    The campaign started with the recipient receiving the travelogue and passport. Every week, we sent them a case study and passport sticker.  The case study was to go into the related section inside the travelogue, and the stamp inside the passport. After all five case studies were received, the recipient was then asked to enter all of their stamp numbers on the DoubleClick web site... the grand prize was a trip to the Annual Catalog Conference.  This campaign generated more than $2 million dollars in revenue and was a Gold Prize Winner at the 2006 BMA Gold Key Awards.

  • RETAIL WALLET MAILER        [ click for photos:  photo 1 : photo 2 ]
    This was a complex campaign because it included multiple custom components.  The campaign was a high-touch mailer that was composed of a direct mail piece with a gender-specific wallet (a bi-fold leather wallet for men and a coin purse wallet for women).  The wallets were created to represent the recipients' clients... the contents of the wallet communicated the knowledge that DoubleClick has about consumer behavior through the power of purchase data.
