Multi Channel Marketing Works

Blog image

In the good old days if you had a simple business model that worked you could keep on using the same old thing year in year out, for decades.

I have seen companies use the same simple mailing piece for 15 or more years with just the odd headline change.  They mailed the offer, banked the cheques, made back-end offers in the post and made good money with little risk.

The pace of change means that what works now could be obsolete in 6 months.  So what do we need to do to keep ahead of the game?

1.       Test even more than we did in the past - headlines, copy, formats, offers, prices etc.

2.       Look at new channels or even re-test those you may have rejected in the past.

3.       Investigate more complex marketing models.  Ones we've seen work well recently include:

a.       Offering a free book by direct mail or newspaper ads.  If the prospects call in they are upsold a continuity program.

b.      Offer free reports on line if they sign up to your e-zine.  The e-zine then builds a relationship with the reader by focussing on useful content with limited sales copy.  Then sales content is included later in the series.
