LIVINGSTON, MT--(Marketwired - April 29, 2014) - PrintingForLess.com (PFL), the nation's first e-commerce commercial printer, is excited to announce a first-of-its-kind print on demand integration with the Marketo customer engagement platform. Using PFLlink, clients can send tactile marketing materials such as direct mail, Every Door Direct Mail, postcards, promotional items, and corporate gifts with the same ease as sending an email.
This integration positions PFL as a leader in Tactile Marketing Automation (TMA). With the most extensive selection of tactile products and full access to PFL capabilities, clients can send a single customized piece to an important client or tens of thousands to the prospects that need a push. FedEx and USPS tracking alerts are fed back into the Marketo platform notifying sales teams when the item is delivered. This allows sales functions to make more relevant, timely follow-up calls, accelerating the sales cycle. Tactile Marketing Automation transforms the customer experience -- delivering more win-ready leads and driving revenue.
"PFLlink allows users to execute true multi-channel marketing by activating the send of tactile items based on rules and triggers prompted by customer behaviors within the Marketo platform," explains PFL CEO Andrew Field. "Clients can get the most out of the Marketo platform when they combine high-impact tactile pieces with digital marketing to increase sales effectiveness, conversion, retention, and engagement metrics."
PFLlink is part of the Marketo LaunchPoint ecosystem that encompasses the most innovative solutions for marketing professionals. This ecosystem is a network of application partners, agency managed service providers and consulting partners that enrich the Marketo experience. Having a Marketo Integrated solution on LaunchPoint provides the entire Marketo Marketing Nation with a simple, automated way to execute tactile marketing. "PFLlink addresses a real marketing challenge to bring services traditionally associated with off-line activity online," said Robin Bordoli, GM New Markets and VP Partner Ecosystems at Marketo. "Quick adoption of the solution after joining the Marketo LaunchPoint ecosystem is evidence that marketing decision makers desire the ability to execute true multi-channel campaigns including digital and print channels."
"There's a demand for marketing channels that reach customers in a more personalized, memorable, and impactful way, while still being cost-effective and automated," explains Daniel Gaugler, VP of Marketing at PFL. "We have always recognized tactile marketing as the most viable solution to strengthen digital campaigns, so this integration was a logical progression in harnessing the power of print through marketing automation."
