PRESENTATION: Digital isn’t everything, it’s part of the pie

I recently did a presentation to a group of commercial printers who service the advertising and design industry. They were interested in understanding how they could tailor their services to compete in a digital world and what they could do to increase their services.

The theme of my presentation was around ‘Digital isn’t everything, it’s part of the pie’. The presentation covered the following:

1. AUSTRALIAN’S ONLINE HABITS

  • History of the Internet – from 1968 to today
  • Australian digital trends and statistics - eCommerce spend, female & male online habits, age groups, media consumption habits

2. WHAT ARE THE OPPORTUNITIES?

  • Customer journey - from awareness to retention
  • Overcoming customer blindness - personal data capture
  • Email communications - Bluefly January 2011 total emails (57 in the month)
  • CRM programs - Qantas, Country Road and Apple

3. FIVE ACTIONS

    The top five actions for commercial printers are:

    1. Understand the digital space
    2. Understand the data capabilities of brands & campaigns
    3. Tailor your product offering to have increased creativity through the use of data
    4. Redevelop your production process that allows short rapid print runs - online tonight, mail tomorrow
    5. Evangelise to Creative Agencies (Studio Managers, Creative Directors, Production Managers) & Clients.

      Hi Dominique,

      Thanks for making the presentation available online. I’d just like to follow up on a question I had on the day, which was do you have any stats on the efficacy (and pitfalls) of eDMs and purls in Australia and the more mature markets in the UK and US?

      Cheers
      Cefn

    2. Nice work Dominque. There’s certainly the ‘cool factor’ going for new media. But people respond best to multiple channels. And sometimes the cool channels are overloaded. Printers will always benefit from the tactile element. The beauty is where advertisers find synergy — using print to help the digital, or vice verse.
