According to Badger Meter, a key marketing component for the product launch was the 3D (three dimensional) direct mail package. “It served to energize and focus the our salespeople to go pitch BEACON,” said Judson Luke, Integrated Marketing Services Manager, Badger Meter.

As part of its product launch, Badger Meter asked Johnson Direct (JD) to develop a direct marketing campaign. An excellent tool for triggering response, direct mail helps to fuel the lead generation process.

Badger Meter also developed a landing page to correspond with the direct mail package.
