These responses can then be quantified and data collected. This data can be manipulated into lists which will help future marketing efforts target and pinpoint the potential customer more directly, saving money and time for the client.
The concept is structured so that the potential customer directly responds to the advertisers. The advertiser is also considered as the marketer.
In order for customers to respond, the advertisers use media that instructs the customer to contact them directly. This is why it is known as direct response marketing.
The advertising in direct response marketing has four factors. It consists of the offer, enough information for the customer to decide to take action, a call to action (meaning, 'call now' or 'you have ten minutes left to call', and how they can respond to the advertisement.
Other media that is used to get the word across is:
' Radio ads
However, in order for direct response marketing to be effective, there are five elements that are crucial to its success:
1. Only advertise or market to customers that have the potential of purchasing again in the future. The way to do that is to implement follow-up marketing to those that show an interest. You don't have to waste time contacting those uninterested parties, and have essentially pared down your list.
2. The kind of advertising that is presented does matter. One kind of advertising that has proven to bring results is in a newsworthy format. In fact, it doesn't look like advertising and looks more like a news blurb. People will always read or listen to the news, whether it's good or bad.
Using these tips can only help to make direct response marketing go to the next level in business.
