What is the difference between Cross-Media and Multi-Channel Marketing?

0

Often these two terms are used as the same but they are far from it.

For example, Multi-Channel Marketing refers to using multiple channels of marketing for a single marketing campaign. So to advertise a monthly sale coming up, you would use direct mail, brochures, an email blast and social media. Therefor we have used 4 different channels for this marketing campaign. Leading marketers are using between 3-6 channels or touches per marketing campaign to make sure their message is being received. How many channels do you typically use?

Cross-Media Marketing, while using different channels, prompts a user to respond using a different media then they were contacted with. So this could be a direct mail piece or brochure that asks the recipient to respond by logging onto a specific micro-site built for the campaign – or maybe to text a code to receive special offers. Maybe it is a social media post about visiting the brick and mortar storefront to receive a discount at the company’s annual open house.

Now the real magic starts when you combine the two into a marketing campaign. Contact me today and let me show you the true benefit of such a campaign. Getting a 2x-5x improved response and beyond can be a reality. rick@printguy.com
