Why businesses should include direct marketing in the mix
Updated: Dec 10, 2018
Return on investment (ROI) is a crucial factor for businesses when determining the success of their marketing efforts. And, although there’s no guarantee on how a marketing campaign will perform, activities including direct marketing, continue to be an effective and measurable way to promote a brand or business.
The power of a conversation
Direct marketing is a unique and powerful part of the marketing mix. Whether you’re a start-up or an established business, looking for more innovative ways to boost brand awareness, professional face-to-face marketing can bring many benefits to a brand. Some of the benefits include the ability to:
customise a campaign’s target audience based on geography and demographics
bring a brand to life through in-person conversation, giving each individual the time to understand the brand, ask questions, and develop a connection
develop a cost-effective direct marketing campaign that reflects your objectives and budget
Setting the foundations for success
Direct marketing sets the foundations for a successful campaign by reaching your intended audience, effectively communicating with them and being able to measure that success, right down to each person who engages with the brand.
Knowledge is power; professional face-to-face campaigns can be measured by each individual’s response, tracking their behaviour through the sales funnel – from the point of interaction to a purchasing decision and their ongoing engagement/commitment to the product. This insight is invaluable in evaluating how a campaign is performing and helps build more strategic and customised campaigns for the future.
