after their holidays. The front page shows a personalized holiday destination picture, hotel picture and a matching room picture. On the back page there is a personalized subject line „Sarah, it’s been a while“ and a personalized salutation „Hello Sarah“. The high recognition value as well as the personal address enables a highly emotional customer interaction, which significantly increases customer loyalty.
