How Can Direct Business Marketing Help You With Your Marketing Campaign?

Do you need a marketing campaign? If so, today I’m going to discuss our marketing process at Direct Business Marketing. We have four different avenues that we focus on in our marketing campaign, Generate, Capture, Store and Nurture. If you look at the graphic in our video, you’ll see how the four avenues flow together.

The first thing you have to do is generate people to your marketing promotion. Secondly, you have to ensure that you capture that information because a prospect doesn’t change into a lead until they give you, at the very minimum, their name and email address. We also want to store this information in a database or somewhere trustworthy because we want to nurture the lead to the sale.

I want to talk to you about an offer and how you can use our particular marketing process to have better marketing flow within your organization. There are four deliverables you’ll get once you engage with us, in order to see where your marketing is currently and where it is going to go so you can have better success in delivering your products and services. The four deliverables are: marketing audit, current marketing flowchart, marketing assessment and new marketing flowchart.

The marketing audit is a very important document that outlines what you’re currently doing and what the ROI is on what you’re currently doing. The second deliverable is the marketing flowchart, which you have right now. This marketing flowchart will give you a visual perspective of what you’re doing and where the holes are that you need to fill in so that your marketing campaign can be successful. From there we give you the marketing assessment; here’s what you should be doing when we’re marketing towards your client-type. Lastly, you’ll get the new marketing flowchart; from a visual perspective, this is what your new marketing campaign will look like.

Please contact me directly and I can tell you more about how you can get these deliverables and how we can set up your marketing campaign for you. You can reach out to me via telephone at 602.369.8119 or email me at [email protected]

Frequently Asked Questions For Mobile Marketing And Advertising

If you have already decided to pursue mobile marketing and advertising for your company because you’ve gone through a marketing evaluation checklist, but still have a few questions about the process, here are some frequently asked questions that Direct Business Marketing typically get from their customers when they begin a mobile marketing and advertising campaign.

First of all, what is the cost to add mobile optimization to you website? For the low cost of $50 a month, you can cater to your customers that choose to do view your website from their smart phone or other mobile device. When compared to the amount of money that could be earned with the opportunity to reach out to existing customers in a new way as well as broaden your customer base, this is a very nominal fee.

Speaking of money, what type of ROI can you expect from your mobile marketing and advertising campaign? Honestly, the ROI for your mobile marketing and advertising campaign can be somewhat tricky to measure because it depends on what type of market you are in as well as how well you are marketing your website to bring in traffic. When it comes to the mobile optimization add-on, it really depends on how many of your customers use their smart phone, iPad, Kindle, etc. to access your website. There is one thing you can count on though, and that’s that more and more people every day start using mobile devices for internet access and product searches.

Some business owners are also often concerned about the number of leads that they can expect from their mobile marketing and advertising campaign. Again, the number of leads that you generate depends on how aggressively you choose to market to your mobile customers. If you choose to do a mobile marketing and advertising add-on but don’t do anything to market it, the number of leads that you generate may not be very high. On the other hand, if you let your customers know that you now have a mobile website and pursue other ways of marketing it, your lead generation could be very high.

After reading this, if you feel that mobile marketing and advertising is right for your business, go through the marketing evaluation checklist on DBM’s website to help you further understand the needs and wants of your customers.

Have You Done A Marketing Evaluation And Want To Know The Advantages Of An Email Marketing Campaign?

Have you looked over your marketing evaluation checklist recently? If you have and you’ve found a few new marketing avenues to pursue, you may be wondering what some of the advantages and disadvantages of them are. Email marketing, for example; this is a marketing medium that is fits well into a marketing plan for most companies. It’s easy to use and can reach out to many existing and potential clients all at once. When compared to traditional mail marketing, how does it compare, however? Email marketing has become very popular with companies over the past few years, and rightly so. Some companies, however, still prefer to do things the old fashioned way.

One of the most obvious advantages of email marketing is that in the United States alone, email users typically check their email at least once a day, if not more. With regards to email marketing, when a blast email is sent out between 1am and 5am, its open and click rate out performs blast emails sent out at any other time of the day. Email marketing is also much cheaper to pursue than traditional mail marketing as well as much faster. Lastly, when participating in an email marketing campaign, you can track your exact return on investment (ROI); this number has typically shown to be high when it’s tracked correctly.

So, what are the disadvantages of an email marketing campaign? One of the only disadvantages reported is issues with emails being delivered. It’s been reported that on average a little over half of all emails are successfully delivered when sending out a blast email.

If you’re considering an email marketing campaign for your company, just keep in mind that it’s a very simple, quick way to reach out to many people all at once. It provides you with the opportunity to strengthen relationships with existing customers as well as create relationships with new ones. Review your business’ marketing evaluation checklist today to see if an email marketing campaign is a good fit for your business.

Door Hangers | Marketing Plans For Real Estate

We’re talking about one of the marketing plans that fits nicely into small marketing budgets for real estate professionals and realtors.

We’ve found that the best practice in using door hangers is to farm a specific area. This allows you to test your marketing in a specific place to test the results of door hanger marketing. With the Short or Stay marketing system, you can place your Short or Stay Calculator on a specific domain and then market that domain on your door hangers to track the results.

It’s also important to put your information and branding in front of homeowners. Understand that people share information with others and might pass on your information to those other people.

One idea to offset costs is to team up with a mortgage company or a title company. If you can market with a partner, the cost can be split.

3 Tips to Cut FAT Out of Your Marketing

Marketing – A business building activity you have to do in order to get your products and services in front of your ideal client.  It’s a necessary evil for business growth. And it is this necessary evil that causes businesses to throw money at marketing budgets, oblivious to the results.

In fact, statistics show that 76% of all marketing activities are ineffective.  That equates to billions of wasted dollars every year.  So, in this article, we are going to give you three tips that you can adhere to — right now – that will help cut the waste out of your marketing.

Tip #1: Know your budget and stick to it

Do you have the slightest clue what the budget is for your marketing campaign?  If your answer is “no” you have a problem. Not knowing your marketing budget is one of the quickest ways to hemorrhage money from your business.  The first thing we would recommend is assigning a percentage of the business’ income to the marketing budget – 10% is a good start.  From there, you can allocate money to a variety of marketing activities.

Tip #2: Know how to calculate your ROI

The ability to calculate your marketing Return on Investment (ROI) is critical.  It’s the one true metric that will signal the effectiveness of your marketing campaign.  Observing how much you have spent and what you got back in return helps you direct your future marketing efforts. Thus, the question becomes, where do you start in calculating your ROI?

The formula for calculating your marketing ROI is fairly simple, especially if you have a predefined marketing budget (see Tip #1).  First, subtract your marketing expenses from your gross profit. Then, divide that number by your marketing expenses to determine your ROI ratio. For example, ABC Store spends $10,000 in marketing and has a gross profit of $40,000. Their ROI is calculated as follows…

Basically, for every dollar ABC Store spends in marketing, they can expect $3 in profit. As your marketing campaigns evolve this ratio is a clear indication of whether your efforts are a step in the right direction.

The DROC™ Internet Marketing solution comes standard with everything you need to capture, store, and nurture leads. Included are items such as a lead capture form, lead capture database, autoresponders, customized look-and-feel which matches your company’s branding, audio & video ready, website analytics integration, SEO integration and more…

Tip #3: Know where your marketing dollars are going

It’s often easiest to simply write a check to a marketing firm and trust that they are creating a marketing campaign with a variety of different activities to boost your bottom line. You might have yellow page ads, blogs, videos, direct mail, pay-per-click campaigns, or email campaigns, just to name a few. You may be left to wonder how much is being spent on each activity. With Direct Business Marketing, you won’t have to guess. We’ll provide you with a report so that you can see for yourself. It’s your money and your marketing campaign. Shouldn’t you know where that money is going?
