Direct To Consumer Marketing Assessment
The world is focused on digital marketing today and digital marketing at its core is truly direct response marketing. The practices, processes and rules that have applied to direct marketing in other media also apply in digital marketing and media.
Digital marketing is direct marketing, so rather than trying to reinvent the wheel, all that has been learned in other direct response media (direct mail, DRTV, etc.) should also be applied here.
Find out how prepared and well your organization is doing with its direct marketing in all media and channels by taking the direct marketing assessment.
