Ever Wondered What WORKS in E-mail and Direct Mail?
Have you ever had to put together copy or design for an e-mail, postcard or direct mail marketing campaign?
If you don’t have a history of testing within your organization, (and sometimes even if you do) it’s hard to know what works. It’s also hard to decide if an image-heavy or text-heavy message will work, without knowing what the competition is sending out. I mean there’s only a few seconds of opportunity for a consumer to open and read your message. If it looks the same as every other piece of mail or e-mail it will get tossed.
Well over at DirectMarketingIQ.com- they KNOW what companies are e-mailing and mailing to prospects!
