15. Direct marketing is just what it sounds like - directly
reaching a market (customers and potential customers) on
a personal (phone calls, private mailings) basis, or mass-
media basis (infomercials, magazine ads, etc.)
A key factor in direct marketing is a "call to action." That is,
direct marketing campaigns should offer an incentive or
enticing message to get consumers to respond (act).
16. Mr. Lester Wunderman says:
“Direct marketing is a channel-agnostic form of
advertising that allows businesses and nonprofits to
communicate straight to the customer, with advertising
techniques such as mobile messaging, email, interactive
consumer websites, online display ads, fliers, catalog
distribution, promotional letters etc

23. ☺ Precession Targeting
Through the usage of carefully selected mailing lists, and the
information contained in customer data bases, the direct marketeers
can direct communications to individual or a specific business
customers who has been identified as a viable prospect. This reduces
the waste inherent in many other types of communications that cannot
be so precisely targeted.
The individual consumers can be and often should be addressed by
name and business customers can be addressed by name and titles.
Information from the databases can be used to select an appropriate
appeal or to encourage additional purchases from a customer who
have purchased previously.
24. ☺ Call for Immediate Action
Direct Marketing calls for specific and immediate action, typically the
purchase of a product or a request for more information about it. This
call for immediate action works against the prospect’s normal tendency
to defer action, often permanently. “Limited time offer” “ Will not be
repeated” and “Your Prompt Reply is Requested” are frequently used
The most important advantage that direct marketing has over other
marketing techniques is its ability to track, and to measure the
effectiveness of specific marketing actions. By knowing precisely what
worked and what did not, the marketeers can allocate the marketing
budgets much more effectively.
