So…What I am good at is marketing using PURL’s. I LOVE them. But your first question is probably – “What the heck is a PURL?” A PURL is a “Personalized URL” or better even said it’s simply a personalized way to target customers. For those who still don’t understand, a URL is the address in the “Address Bar” that you type everytime you want to visit a website. So, if you want to target a specific audience like I do in direct mail and use PURL’s what you would do is simply upload a list of some sort into a CMS System on your website (you do need a little list management and website coding to do this on the front end) But basically, what I do is simply merge the list with the mailer so that the PURL’s match up, I create creative campaigns that make sense for the “PURL” to even work.

It’s very important for the PURL to connect with the targeted customer as much as the message to connect. If the two don’t connect, then you’ve missed the boat. I will explain in further detail how PURL’s work in later posts. Why? It’s my passion! Let me know if you want further info!
