Direct-Response Marketing - Three Reasons Why Direct-Response Can Boost Sales Almost Immediately

April 18, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 109

Direct-Response Marketing is often thought of only in its most basic mail.

But direct-response (or "DR") isn't limited to mail. It can be used for websites, email, print ads, case studies, brochures, and much more. DR copy is one of the fastest ways to boost your bottom line.

You do want to boost your bottom line, don't you?

Here are three reasons why you should use DR marketing for your websites, emails, brochures, print ads, and any other piece of copy you can think of:

You know right away if an ad is working

Branding, by nature, takes time to be effective (if it's ever effective).

Direct-Response, on the other hand, gives you immediate feedback. If you publish an ad on Monday, and aren't getting calls that day, you know the ad didn't work.

If an ad fails, you can kill it and never run it again.

Which leads to the next point...

It gives you more control

Branding can't be measured because a brand ad isn't asking for an action.

Because DR ads ask for action, you can measure the effectiveness of each ad and each medium.

You get to learn how much you are paying per customer, per lead, the cost per sale, and any other metric that's important to you (such as the price customers are willing to pay).

Speaking of different mediums...

Once you find something that works, you can easily apply it to other mediums

One of the hardest parts of running a business is finding the benefits and sales messages that appeal to your customers.

With branding, you can never be 100% sure what's working (because your goal is to expose people to your brand, not get an immediate sale).

With DR, you know exactly what's working, and once you find a sales appeal that works, you can apply it to every medium.

Direct-Response also helps with product and service development. If you find that "fast results" sells more than "low-cost", you can create products that help meet your customers need for speed.

There's only one problem...

Branding ads are often very creative, beautiful, and a lot of fun to make.

But, you must always ask the purpose of your ad to please people, or is it to make you money?

Would you rather hear people tell you that you've created a beautiful ad, or would you rather watch your bank account grow?

Are you ready to give direct-response marketing a try?
