Can Direct Marketing help Marketers in generating additional leads?
Direct Marketing can bring many benefits to both buyers and sellers, whether it is employed as a complete business model (like in the case of Dell Computers) or as a supplement to a broader integrated marketing mix (like in the case of Hewlett-Packard of Sony).
For buyers, Direct Marketing provides convenience, easy to use, and private way of interacting with Sellers. Buyers from the comfort of their homes or offices can browse mail catalogs or company websites at any time of the day or night. Direct Marketing gives buyers ready access to a wealth of products and information, at home and around the globe. Direct Marketing is immediate and interactive – buyers can interact with sellers by phone, chat or emails or on the seller’s website to create exactly the configuration of information, products, or services they desire, and then order them on the spot.
For sellers, direct marketing is a powerful tool for building customer relationships. Using customer databases and insight into customer data, marketers can target small groups or individual consumers, tailor offers for individual needs, and promote these offers through personalized communications. Direct Marketing can also be timed to reach prospects at just the right moment. The internet is a great tool for direct marketing as it provides interactivity, one-to-one communication, access to global markets and measurability.
Direct Marketing is a low cost, efficient alternative for reaching to customers through its lower costs of media, and reaching to customers over internet, email and web sites.
