Directmail.io First to Merge Direct Mail with Facebook Messenger, Allowing Seamless Communication to Customers
New technology makes communicating immediately with advertisers on direct mail as easy as taking a picture from your phone
DirectMail.io has always been at the forefront of new technology. They were one of the first innovators of the personalized URL on mailers. More recently they were the first to integrate Amazon Alexa with direct mail in their patented “Voice” feature, and now they’ve discovered a way to integrate Facebook Messenger with direct mail.

Currently, 11% of the world’s population uses Facebook Messenger every month…that’s 1.3 billion people.

And work together they do! The way the integration works is through the DirectMail.io platform, and the ability to print a QR code on your mailer. The QR code is directly linked to a Facebook Messenger related to either the campaign or to the company. When someone uses their camera app to view the QR code, it will automatically pull them into Facebook Messenger and allow them to communicate with the advertiser. Details of the conversation all funnel into the DirectMail.io CRM where it is easy to follow up with customers, walk them through surveys, and even serve up future marketing to them.
