Direct mail has been a marketing staple for decades, but with the advent of digital marketing, it can be easy to overlook its effectiveness. That’s where Mailjoy comes in. With Mailjoy’s contact management and mailing list features, you can create more targeted campaigns that drive results. But how about tracking direct mail response rates? That’s where QR codes come in.

The Rise of QR Codes

QR codes have become ubiquitous in recent years. Undoubtedly you’ve probably seen them on products, posters, and even on restaurant menus. QR codes are a two-dimensional barcode that can be scanned by a smartphone camera. They can contain a variety of information, including website URLs, contact information, and more. But how can you use them in direct mail campaigns?

Using QR Codes for Tracking Direct Mail Response Rates

Tracking your conversions has been possible for many years using Mailjoy’s conversion urls. We have now made it even easier by allowing you to easily add a QR code to your postcard or other mailer. This QR code can be customized to contain a variety of information, including a unique identifier for each recipient. When the recipient scans the code with their smartphone camera, they will be directed to a landing page that is customized to your direct mail campaign (perhaps even the recipient’s profile).

This landing page can be used to track conversions. For example, if you’re promoting a new product, you can direct recipients to a landing page where they can learn more about the product and make a purchase. Furthermore, by tracking the number of people who scan the QR code and make a purchase, you can determine the effectiveness of your campaign.
