One of the biggest time saving features of Postalytics is the ability to copy a direct mail template.

Why Copy A Direct Mail Template?

There are many reasons why you’d want to make a copy of a direct mail template. Here are the most common scenarios:

  • You’ve spent a lot of time & energy building your first template
  • You have a new campaign that can use most of your previous work
  • You’d like to make some modifications to the template, but not start from scratch

Another common scenario involves setting up an A/B split test with variants in the creative. You can focus your efforts on a building a base template, then quickly make copies & modifications for the variants you’d like to test.
