Description

Available as a PDF

As explosive as the digital revolution has been, another equally important shake-up moved quickly throughout the marketing world these past couple years. You can call this focus measurement or accountability, or simply use the name it’s been known by for almost a century — direct.

The beauty of direct response is the ability to track, measure, analyze and adjust your efforts to your customers’ behaviors in a continuous loop that allows you to maximize profits while matching costs to need.

Of course, beauty isn’t easy to come by; direct marketing involves planning and diligence. It also requires the use of mathematics to quantify your efforts so you can make sense of the response and your best next steps.

But who says math has to be hard or only for those who can solve a Rubik’s Cube in less than a minute? The analytics experts who wrote the articles contained in this guide don’t want you to be daunted by terms like regression, multivariate and neural networks.

Rather, they’ve taken the key concepts of marketing analysis and plotted them out as the business processes you use every day: sales costs, fulfillment costs, package costs, average initial order, etc. 

You’ll learn how to determine the value of acquiring an email address, generating a lead and acquiring a new customer — all critical analyses to running a direct response business.
