Once the piece is delivered we monitor the in-home delivery with our proprietary online dashboard, and then measure response and apply the learnings to future campaigns. We use the same direct marketing approach in the electronic world. Email is another form of delivery, but the methods are the same.

Email Marketing

Tribune Direct is committed to our goal of providing solutions for our clients to reach their customers in a personalized,
targeted approach, regardless of the medium. In todays world, direct marketing is so much more than just direct
mail. Our world seems to revolve around email, so why not also reach your potential customers via their email inbox?

Whether its prospecting for new customers or reaching your existing customers, we have a turnkey approach to assist
in your electronic marketing efforts.

There are many parallels between the traditional direct marketing world and the emerging email marketing world.
Strategies in using email marketing are commonly broken into 2 different approaches: Acquisition and/or Retention.
Sometimes these strategies stand alone, but many times are combined efforts.

For clients looking purely for an acquisition strategy to prospect for new customers, we can deliver email
campaigns in a very similar targeting approach as direct mail. We can identify email lists by demographic and specific
geography. So if your target market involves household income and gender selections, weve got that covered.

For clients that already have a customer list, we first need to know if you have email addresses for each customer. If
you do, we can execute a simple message deployment. However, if you dont have email addresses for your customers, we can offer some great
enhancement services. Lets highlight the 2 most unique service offerings.

Prospecting for New Customers:
Tribune Direct has access to over 100 million current opt-in email addresses, 95% of which are linked to
a physical address. We can easily create a targeted eBlast campaign for your business by using advanced
selections such as geography, household income, age, gender, homeowner status, marital status and presence
of children. In fact, there are hundreds of selections available, so we can ensure you are reaching the best
audience for your eBlast campaign. And if you are planning to use Tribunes electronic AdMail program, we
can remove those email addresses from your campaign, so theres no duplication. If its businesses you need
to reach, weve got that covered as well. Choose businesses by category, size, revenue and many other factors.
Just tell us who you need to reach, and well handle all the details.

Your emails to prospective customers are handled by Tribune Direct, using 3rd party servers. The emails will
appear to come from you, but the IP Addresses being used have passed rigorous blacklist/whitelist testing
to provide the highest deliverability rates possible. In the offline world of direct mail, its not uncommon for
mailing lists to be exchanged. However, in the online world of email marketing, reputable companies do not
release their email lists. This is done to protect the integrity of the list, and it also assures the bulk of any
spam complaints will impact the list owner, not you. If another company offers to rent or sell an email list, but
requires you to handle the sending, beware. Always use a reputable company.

Using an Existing Customer List
We can also help with your eBlast efforts by enhancing an existing customer list. In many cases our clients fall
into one or both of the following categories. They either have an existing physical address list, but lack email
addresses. Or they have an existing email list, but lack physical addresses. Our match-back solutions provide
the remedy for either scenario.

We can append your database with email or physical addresses, and the results can be amazing. We have
access to over 100 million current opt-in email addresses, 95% of which are linked to a physical address.

In the case you need email addresses added to your database, we can perform a Welcome Blast or Match &
Deploy Blast.

In the Welcome Blast, we would find as many of your customers as possible using our opt-in email database, and
then send a targeted message introducing those customers to your email communications. This message tells
recipients what type of information you intend to send them, gives them an option to decline receiving emails
from you, and allows confirmation of deliverability. The opt-out is clearly indicated, and if they dont respond
within one week, those emails are then added to your customer list and provided back to your business for
future email marketing efforts.

If you choose a Match & Deploy program, we would identify email addresses that match your customer records,
and then send a targeted message in a basic eBlast. The email addresses cannot be provided back to your
business, because this program is similar to prospecting emails where the list owner protects their list asset.

In the case you need physical addresses added to your existing customer email addresses, we can perform a
reverse-match with demographics. The result is very powerful. Youll now have information related to your
customers geographic location, age, income, homeowner status, presence of children and marital status. This
will enable you to not only execute targeted direct mail campaigns, but also further target your email marketing

Building an Email Database
Tribune Direct can also assist your business in building an email list from scratch. Direct mail pieces that include
a business reply envelope, or microsites with back-end data capture can be very effective methods to grow your
email list.
