My first letterbox drop

Salmat explains the top three most common mistakes retailers make with business flyers.  

Offline retailers reclaim online market share

Traditional retailers are reclaiming the ground lost to ‘e-tailers’ (online only retailers) over the past few years, with over 3.5 million unique visitors searching catalogues online for in-store offers over the December shopping period.

Salmat brings retail product search to mobile handsets

Salmat DigitalForce, a division of Salmat, has today launched two unique services for the mobile phone.

Giving Retailers Bigger Bang for their Catalogue Bucks

Business Intelligence, Business Performance Management and Dashboards. They have been buzzwords in the business world for a long time, yet for the catalogue distribution industry, their impact is only just starting to be felt.

Is your online catalogue attracting or repelling customers?

Launched in November 2007, Salmat’s Dynamic Catalogue meets the growing need of bricks and mortar retailers and manufacturers, to make their products visible online. The technology is a powerful online product-based viewing platform that integrates into a retailer’s or manufacturer’s own site, enhancing online presence and customer experience.

Cost Effectively Build Your Email And Mobile Marketing Database

Email is a highly effective channel for retailers to deliver content rich marketing messages to consumers. Executed properly, email marketing is engaging, non-intrusive and highly measurable.

How targeting can improve ROI in a tough market

Let me guess. Your marketing dollars have been slashed but your sales budgets have increased. Your CEO wants more consumers through the doors, but hasn’t got any extra cash for you to acquire them.

How easily can your customers find your store?

Just think about how many times you find the product you are looking for, but then can’t find the nearest store that stocks that product. Or you find your nearest store but you don’t know if it’s open or closed.

Best practice guidelines for email and mobile marketing

According to the Direct Marketing Association, for every dollar spent on email marketing in 2008, marketers can expect an estimated $48.29 return on investment.

Beat the GEC with a catalogue

It seems that everyone is discussing the Global Economic Crisis. It has been the topic of every conversation in the past six months and it even has its own abbreviation – GEC.

The Importance of Adopting a Customer Feedback Solution

In today’s highly competitive retail environment, customers have a significant amount of choice, as well as high expectations. As a result, there is an increased need for retailers to take proactive steps to satisfy customer needs. One of the best ways to achieve this is to implement a solution to efficiently capture and evaluate customer feedback.

Marketing material gets tasty

Many FMCG firms are letting their potential customers try before they buy with some fantastic results. Getting product samples into the hands of consumers is an old tactic but logistically it’s very difficult to execute.

How to make the most of digital alert solutions

Communications to customers can influence market perception of your business and have a significant impact on your overall success.

Buying tickets in the search engine lottery

We all know that targeted traffic is great for business. To make a sale, it is imperative that you get the right information to the right person at the right time.
