WHAT IS DIRECT MARKETING
Direct marketing messages emphasize a focus on the customer, data, and accountability.
distinguish direct marketing are:
1.Marketing messages are addressed directly to customers. Direct marketing relies on being able
to address the members of a target market.
Addressability comes in a variety of forms including email addresses, mobile phone numbers,
Web browser cookies,
fax numbers and UK postal addresses.
2.Direct marketing seeks to drive a specific "call to action." For example,
an advertisement may ask the prospect to call a free
phone number or click on a link to a website.
3.Direct marketing emphasizes trackable,
measurable responses from customers — regardless of medium.
Direct marketing is practiced by businesses of all sizes — from small
businesses to the large blue chip companies.
A well-executed direct advertising campaign can prove a positive return on investment
by showing how many potential customers responded to
a clear call-to-action. General advertising eschews calls-for-action in favor
of messages that try to build prospects’ emotional awareness
or engagement with a brand.
DIRECT MARKETING CHANNELS
Any medium that
can be used to deliver a communication to a customer can be employed in direct marketing, including:
in which faxes are sent to multiple recipients, is now less common than in the past.
Now Roughly only 2% of direct marketers use fax,
and then mostly only for business-to-business marketing campaigns.
Also, due to the popularity of a variety of digital communication
methods, the overall use of faxes is less than in the past.
Sending marketing messages through email or Email marketing
is one of the most widely used direct-marketing methods.
One reason for email marketing's popularity is that it is relatively inexpensive
to design, test, and send an email message.
It also allows marketers to deliver messages around the clock, and to accurately measure
Through mobile marketing, marketers engage with prospective customers and donors in an interactive manner through
a mobile device or
network, such as a cellphone, smartphone, or tablet. Types of mobile marketing messages include: SMS: (short message
marketing communications are sent in the form of text messages, also known as texting. MMS: (multi-media message service)
These messages use elements such as images, video, and audio; Mobile Applications: Smartphone-based mobile apps contain several types
of messages. Push Notifications are direct messages sent to a user either automatically or as part of a campaign. They include transactional,
marketing, geo-based, and more. Rich Push Notifications are full HTML Push Notifications. Mobile apps also contain Interactive ads
that appear inside the mobile application or app; Location-Based Marketing: marketing messages delivered directly to a mobile device
based on the user's
location; QR Codes (quick-response barcodes): This is a type of 2D barcode with an encoded link that can be accessed
from a smartphone.
This technology is increasingly being used for everything from special offers to product information. Mobile Banner
Ads: Like standard
banner ads for desktop Web pages but smaller to fit on mobile screens and run on the mobile content network.
Cold calling is the marketing process of approaching prospective customers or clients, typically via telephone, who were not
such an interaction. The word "cold" is used because the person receiving the call is not expecting a call or has not specifically
asked to be contacted by a sales person.
Another common form of direct marketing is telemarketing, in which marketers
contact customers by phone. The primary benefit to businesses
is increased lead generation, which helps businesses increase sales
volume and customer base. The most successful telemarketing service
providers focus on generating more "qualified" leads that have
a higher probability of getting converted into actual sales.
Telemarketing (sometimes known as inside sales, or telesales in the UK
and Ireland) is a method of direct marketing in which a
salesperson solicits prospective customers to buy products or services, either
over the phone or through a subsequent face to face
or Web conferencing appointment scheduled during the call.
may be done from a company office, from a call centre, or from home. It may involve either a live operator or a recorded
in which case it is known as "automated telemarketing" using voice broadcasting. "Robocalling" is a form of voice broadcasting
is most frequently associated with political messages.
An effective telemarketing process often involves two or more calls. The first
call (or series of calls) determines the customer’s needs.
The final call (or series of calls) motivates the customer to make a purchase.
Prospective customers are identified by various means, including past purchase history, previous requests for information, credit
competition entry forms, and application forms. Names may also be purchased from another company's consumer database or obtained
telephone directory or another public list. The qualification process is intended to determine which customers are most likely
purchase the product or service.
Charitable organizations, alumni associations, and political parties often use telemarketing to
solicit donations. Marketing research
companies use telemarketing techniques to survey the prospective or past customers of a client’s
business in order to assess market
acceptance of or satisfaction with a particular product, service, brand, or company. Public opinion
polls are conducted in a similar manner.
Telemarketing techniques are also applied to other forms of electronic marketing using e-mail
or fax messages, in which case they are
frequently considered spam by receivers.
DIRECT RESPONSE RADIO
In direct response radio, ads
contain a call to action with a specific tracking mechanism. Often, this tracking mechanism is a "call now"
prompt with a toll-free
phone number or a unique Web URL. Results of the ad can be tracked in terms of calls, orders, customers, leads,
sales, revenue, and
profits that result from the airing of those ads.
Another form of direct marketing, insert media are marketing materials
that are inserted into other communications, such as a catalog,
newspaper, magazine, package, or bill. Coop or shared mail, where
marketing offers from several companies are delivered via a single
envelope, is also considered insert media.
Out of home
direct marketing refers to a wide array of media designed to reach the consumer outside the home, including transit,
bus benches, aerials, airports, in-flight, in-store, movies, college campus/high schools, hotels, shopping malls,
stadiums, taxis — that contain a call-to-action for the customer to respond.
DIRECT RESPONSE MAGAZINES AND NEWSPAPERS
newspaper ads often include a direct response call-to-action, such as a toll-free number, a coupon redeemable at a
store, or a QR code that can be scanned by a mobile device — these methods are all forms of direct marketing, because
a direct and measurable action from the customer.
Direct selling is the sale of products by face-to-face contact with
the customer, either by having salespeople approach potential
customers in person, or through indirect means such as Tupperware parties.
With advertising techniques such as mobile messaging, email, interactive consumer websites, online
display ads, fliers,
catalog distribution, promotional letters, and outdoor advertising.
The door-to-door distribution of flyers and
leaflets within a local community is a business-to-consumer form of direct marketing used
extensively by restaurants, fast food companies,
and many other business focusing on a local catchment. Similar to direct mail marketing,
this method is targeted purely by area and
community, and costs a fraction of the amount of a mailshot, since it is not necessary to
purchase stamps, envelopes, or address lists
with the names of home occupants.
Couponing is used in print and digital media to elicit a response from the reader. An
example is a coupon which the reader receives
through the mail and takes to a store's check-out counter to receive a discount.
Coupons: Manufacturers and retailers make coupons available online for electronic orders that can be downloaded and printed.
coupons are available on company websites, social media outlets, texts, and email alerts. There are an increasing number of
phone applications offering digital coupons for direct use.
Daily Deal Sites offer local and online deals each day, and are becoming
increasingly popular. Customers sign up to receive notice of
discounts and offers, which are sent daily by email. Purchases are often
made using a special coupon code or promotional code.
The largest of these sites, Groupon, has over 83 million subscribers.
Voicemail marketing emerged out of the market prevalence of personal voice mailboxes, and business voicemail systems.
marketing presented a cost effective means by which to reach people directly, by voice. Abuse of consumer marketing applications
voicemail marketing resulted in an abundance of "voice-spam," and prompted many jurisdictions to pass laws regulating consumer
marketing. More recently, businesses have utilized guided voicemail (an application where pre-recorded voicemails are guided
callers) to accomplish personalized business-to-business marketing formerly reserved for telemarketing. Because guided voicemail
used to contact only businesses, it is exempt from Do Not Call regulations in place for other forms of voicemail marketing. Voicemail
courier is a similar form of voicemail marketing with both business-to-business and business-to-consumer applications.
marketing is attractive to many marketers because its positive results can be measured directly. For example, if a marketer sends
out 1,000 solicitations by mail and 100 respond to the promotion, the marketer can say with confidence that campaign led directly
direct responses. This metric is known as the 'response rate,' and it is one of many clearly quantifiable success metrics employed
direct marketers. In contrast, general advertising uses indirect measurements, such as awareness or engagement, since there is
response from a consumer.
Measurement of results is a fundamental element in successful direct marketing. The Internet has
made it easier for marketing managers to
measure the results of a campaign. This is often achieved by using a specific website landing
page directly relating to the promotional
material. A call to action will ask the customer to visit the landing page, and the effectiveness
of the campaign can be measured by taking
the number of promotional messages distributed (e.g., 1,000) and dividing it by the number
of responses (people visiting the
unique website page). Another way to measure the results is to compare the projected sales or generated
leads for a given term with the
actual sales or leads after a direct advertising campaign.
CHALLENGES AND SOLUTIONS
While many marketers
recognize the financial benefits of increasing targeted awareness, some direct marketing efforts using particular
media have been
criticized for generating poor quality leads, either due to poor message strategy or because of poorly compiled
This poses a problem for marketers and consumers alike, as advertisers do not wish to waste money on communicating with consumers
not interested in their products. Some of these concerns have been addressed by direct marketers by the use of individual "opt-out"
lists, variable printing, and better-targeted list practices. Additionally, in order to avoid unwanted mailings, members of the marketing
industry have established preference services that give customers more control over the marketing communications they receive in the
mail. The term "junk mail," referring to unsolicited commercial ads delivered via post office or directly deposited in consumers'
can be traced back to 1954. The term "spam," meaning "unsolicited commercial e-mail," can be traced back to March 31,
1993, although in
its first few months it merely referred to inadvertently posting a message so many times on UseNet that the repetitions
out the normal flow of conversation.
Agents in the sales process can represent either of two parties
in the sales process; for example:
1.Sales broker or Seller agency or seller agent: This is a traditional role where the salesman
represents a person or company on the
selling end of a deal.
2.Buyers broker or Buyer brokerage: This is where the salesman represents
the consumer making the purchase.
This is most often applied in large transactions.
3.Disclosed dual agent:This is where the salesman
represents both parties in the sale and acts as a mediator for the transaction.
The role of the salesman here is to oversee that both
parties receive an honest and fair deal, and is responsible to both.
4.Transaction broker: This is where the salesperson represent
neither party but handles the transaction only.
The seller owes no responsibility to either party getting a fair or honest deal, just
that all of the papers are handled properly.
5.Sales outsourcing involves direct branded representation where the sales representatives
are recruited, hired, and managed by an
external entity but hold quotas, represent themselves as the brand of the client, and report
all activities (through their own sales
management channels) back to the client. It is akin to a virtual extension of a sales force
(see sales outsourcing).
6.Sales managers: qualified and talented sales managers aim to implement various sales strategies and management
techniques in order
to facilitate improved profits and increased sales volume. They are also responsible for coordinating the sales
department as well as oversight concerning the fair and honest execution of the sales process by their agents.
The primary function of professional sales is to generate and close leads, educate prospects, fill needs and satisfy wants
appropriately, and therefore turn prospective customers into actual ones. Questioning – to understand a customer's goal
relevant to the product – and the creation of a valuable solution by communicating the necessary information that
encourages a buyer
to achieve their goal at an economic cost comprise the functions of the salesperson or of the sales engine
(for example, the Internet,
a vending machine, etc.). A good salesman should never mis-sell or over-evaluate the customer's requirements.
INSIDE SALES VS. OUTSIDE
Since the advent of the telephone, a distinction has been made between "inside sales" and "outside sales" although it is generally
that those terms have no hard-and-fast definition. Outside sales representatives sell their products, services, or facilities
away from their place(s) of business, in general, either at the customer's place of business or by selling door-to-door
customer's home" while defining those who work "from the business's location" as inside sales. Inside sales generally involves
to close business primarily over the phone via cold calling or telemarketing, while outside sales (or "field" sales) will
initial phone work to book sales calls at the potential buyer's location to attempt to close the deal in person. Some
companies have an
inside sales department that works with outside representatives and book their appointments for them.
sometimes refers to upselling to existing customers.
