    • There are two routes you can go down…
    • Traditional Campaign Testing Control GO LIVE ; INVOLVE CONSUMERS #DMAPrint
    • Traditional Campaign Testing Control Control 100 days GO LIVE ; INVOLVE CONSUMERS #DMAPrint
    • The problems with traditional testing…  One pack fits all  Not cost effective to segment  Control pack is very difficult to beat  Few tests a year ( 2 or 3 )  Many new initiatives fail You might know what works but not why – so what do you learn as a marketer from this for your other campaigns?   Therefore off line DM as a channel is not as effective as it might be. #DMAPrint
    • Speed is key It’s about being able to react to changing markets and audiences fast – rapid learning, gaining an understanding in just days, not months and months... #DMAPrint
    • Chris Combemale Executive Director DMA ”The lengthy time it takes to learn and the cost of live testing has a negative impact on the effectiveness of offline Direct Marketing. The advent of the internet (and specifically panel based research) means it is no longer necessary to wait months to discover which creative approach, envelope or incentive will work best...” Chris Combemale May 2011 #DMAPrint
