About Ellen Paul
Let's Get Personal!
A Message From Ellen Paul
I've spotted a trend that makes me very happy–people are getting personal again!
It's everywhere you look. Facebook and YouTube have made everyone a friend at the touch of a mouse. Reality shows bring us into each other's living rooms and each other's lives. And we can text our colleagues, family and the local pizza place 24/7 and from everywhere to anywhere.
Paul&Partners offers a dynamic solution for you to get personal with your customers. It's called VDP Plus™ and it's a very powerful direct marketing technology that combines customized direct marketing (direct mail, email or both) with Personalized URLs (PURLs) for truly 1-to-1 marketing. No matter how diverse your customer base, we can make your marketing to them highly personalized.

And since we're on the subject, I'd like to talk about personalized service and what that means to us. When you come to Paul&Partners with a project we want to understand your objectives, what else you've tried (and the results, please) and how you got to this exact point in your marketing program. From your mailing list to your message, your offer to your results tracking, we want to find the best solution for you.
Providing personalized service is not about calling you with a price quote. It's not even about giving you the lowest price quote. It's about helping you get results from your direct marketing programs in ways you may not have thought of. It's about Smarter Marketing.
And personally, that's a trend I like!
