Elkridge, MD. August 22, 2007. Global performance improvement solutions provider General Physics Corporation (GP), a subsidiary of GP Strategies Corporation (NYSE: GPX), has expanded its publishing capabilities, provided by the Sandy Corporation division of GP, to include custom magalogs. The custom magalog is an alternative way to reach customers using a more targeted approach than traditional product catalogs.
“The custom magalog combines the familiar magazine content of stories and human interest items with direct offers and product information. We take it a step further and add the element of personalization. This step offers clients the potential of reaching tightly defined target audiences, including an audience of one,” says Fred Strickland, President of Sandy Corporation.
Martha Manting, Director of Sandy Corporation’s Custom Publishing Division, stated, “Marketing specialists have to take personalized communications seriously today. Mass communications just can’t do it all any longer. Current customers want product information that speaks to them with personal relevance. They want to feel that the manufacturer knows who they are and what is of interest to them. Custom magalogs are a natural medium for building loyalty and for expanding sales with existing customers who already embrace the brand.”
