Every document you send to your customers is so much more than just a bill or statement – it is an important touchpoint along the customer journey.

A recent report by McKinsey found that organizations focused on maximizing satisfaction with regard to the entire customer journey have the potential to increase overall customer satisfaction by 20%. Here are a few best practices we’ve found to help you transform your bills and statements to positively impact the customer experience:

  • Create a more engaging document using spot or full color to catch the reader’s eye
  • Incorporate educational details, product information and personalized promotional messages on the statement
  • Add larger and more noticeable inserts and on-serts to accompany the bill or statement
  • Include an informative newsletter from your organization as a marketing piece in the same envelope
