Successful marketing to transport companies

The transport companies UK database is useful for businesses across the entire breadth of transport and logistics operations including:

It is also relevant for companies involved in supply chains, such as provision of

  • lorry, truck and heavy machinery supplies
  • end-to-end operators,
  • pallet delivery,
  • bulk goods handling, and
  • shipping.

By using a targeted database allows you to spend time on user segmentation.

Basic user segmentation will allow you to create more personalised communications based on something you know about the company.

So, if you are a company providing truck driver perks, for example, you could sell spaces at large events to big companies and smaller gift-based ideas to SMEs.

More complex segmentation takes this idea even further, so you analyse your contact list across multiple data points for more detailed user segments.

This then allows you to combine your contacts into different groups.

You may create a group where your contacts work in transport manager positions for small businesses with a decreasing turnover, for example.

By doing this allows your messages to be far more focused, and raises the chances of contacts responding favourably.

The most advanced form of segmentation involves predictive analytics, using information known about a contact and their past behaviour to predict what they will do next.

However this method requires some relationship with a contact, but thanks to the database being available to you for 12 months, you can do this with ease.

The three main advantages of using our databases

1. Offer personalised solutions

Personalise the message for better success in direct marketing campaigns

By using our databases which have a wide range of information for each entry, and provide numerous details about the business and contact, you can create more targeted messages.

One standard email marketing message can be adapted to create a solution that feels specific to the needs of the individual by simply segmenting your list and sending a slightly different message to each group.

2. Identify high-value contacts

Because our managed email marketing service provides full analytics for each of your transmissions, this enables you to identify the more-interested and most-engaged recipients.

We then suggest focusing on these contacts first when sending follow up emails or using telemarketing, as these will be the most likely to convert.

3. Conversion-focused marketing communication

Often making conversions can be as simple as contacting a lead at the right time.

By varying your marketing message over 12 months, you can see which achieved the most engagement from recipients.

Then, use this knowledge to further create the right message to bring in new business.
