How a Skincare Company Found Customers They Weren't Reaching Through Digital Channels

2 Min Read

This industry-leading beauty & personal care retail brand leans heavily on a quantitative marketing approach to showcase its professionally vetted assortment of products and SKUs. It regularly accessed behavioral models to acquire customers at the right time in the purchase funnel and subsequently uses data-driven relationship-building techniques to extend lifetime value thereafter.

The Challenge

Launch new potential customer acquisition channel through behavioral modeling competitive with existing digital efforts.

The Postie Solution

Postie’s infrastructure, rooted in deep data science and artificial intelligence, was perfect for building a prospecting campaign that could stand out in a crowded market. A quant solution to offline growth acquisition, our lookalike audience modeling engine and machine stack allowed our client to simply upload its best performing customer segments and create ideal customer profile pools that mimic them – all in minutes.

This is made possible through our internal DMP, consisting of thousands of precise behavioral and consumer attributes related to over 250 million households. Our partner’s existing customer list was validated, analyzed, and subsequently matched with an audience that statistically mirrored their own. They, and all of our clients, are then able to see these attributes in a customized Audience Portrait Analysis, available in their Postie UI.

Using the best-practice templates available to them in the UI, the client was then able to quickly parlay their digital marketing work for outlets like Google ads and social media into vivid, print-ready pieces. Showcasing imagery of the reputable brands available in their collection, coupled with an appealing but competitive promotion, these creatives were quickly uploaded and on our partners’ desks for approval within 2 business days.

After simply appending the transaction pixel available to them in their Postie account, our client is set up to retrieve attribution data on their website visitors in real-time, and the campaign is sent to Postie print cloud to deploy.


The lookalike audience campaign and targeted advertising of digital direct mail outperformed all pre-campaign KPI thresholds and resulted in continued and expanded usage of our proprietary engine.
