click for more on primary research 4sight's direct marketing servicesAt 4sight we would describe direct marketing less by way of the medium used – letters, postcards, leaflets, flyers, coupons, email, internet banners etc. – and more by the way it is used to create or enhance a direct relationship between an  organisation and its customers.  

The following key components will be at the heart of any direct marketing exercise conducted by 4sight:-

  • Recipients will be presented with a clear ‘call to action’ i.e. encouraged to respond in ways that are convenient to them
  • The exercise must have measurability (e.g. response levels) and traceability built in
  • Segmentation’ will be used to target those most likely to have an interest in the offer - thereby avoiding counterproductive, ineffective ‘waste’ e.g. junk mail or spam
  • The impact on building, maintaining or reinforcing the buyer-seller relationship is considered paramount, and
  • Return on investment (ROI) and control over marketing expenditure be considered from the onset.

This approach should reinforce the move away from data-driven or mass-marketing – towards more individualised interactions with customers or prospects.

Over the years 4sight's consultants have helped create and deliver  scores of direct marketing exercises - Marketing that has been proven to be cost-conscious, value-driven and measurably effective.
