Sell to the Right Audience
At a session of Direct Marketing Days in Singapore, a friend of mine made a presentation that included the statement that there are really only five things you do with direct response:

1. Get new customers.
2. Keep the customers you now have.
3. Get those customers to upgrade.
4. Cross sell to your customers.
5. Encourage your customers to come back for more!

If you believe this (and I do), it quickly becomes obvious that your message must be sent to the right audience -- that is, the list you use for direct mail, the magazine or newspaper selection, the right audience for broadcast, the best possible list for telemarketing.

Selecting the right audience is the most important part of the direct response marketing program. Dull creative, a weak offer and sloppy production don't help. But even with these strikes against you, if you get your message to the right people-business or consumer -- at least it has a chance of working. Click here to read the full article.

Web Sites Must Meet Marketing Objectives…
...and Many Don’t

Since putting up my Web site www.bly.com in April 1998, I’ve received a ton of unsolicited e-mails, faxes, and phone calls – from casual Internet surfers as well as Web professionals – with all sorts of advice on how to make my Web site better.

Unfortunately, more than 90 percent of their suggestions are almost totally off the mark … and would be a complete waste of my time and money.

Why is this the case? It’s not that site visitors don’t have valid opinions on graphics or content, or that Web professionals don’t have good ideas. They do.

The problem is, all the advice is given with no thought as to the business objective of my site … and whether the enhancement would further this goal.
