    Agency: DMCM

  • 2. A Tough Nut to Crack!
    The Challenge
    Direct Marketing Campaign Management was finding the market incredibly difficult as a relatively new agency and having to compete with larger established agencies. The challenge was to generate awareness for DMCM and significant revenue on a shoestring budget.
  • 3. A Tough Nut to Crack!
    The Target Market
    40 decision makers including Marketing Directors, Marketing Managers and Direct Marketing Managers, in 8 industry sectors known for heavy Direct Marketing use: Auto, Financial, FMCG, Pharmaceuticals, IT, Charity, Food & Beverages.
  • 4. A Tough Nut to Crack!
    The Thinking
    A Call-Mail-Call strategy was adopted for the campaign.
    To ensure 100% accuracy and zero wastage, key decision-makers were pre-called to confirm the accuracy of data and that they were in fact decision-makers on DM related issues.
    An unusual and incredibly impactful Direct Mail piece was sent. Any non-respondents were called 3-5 days after the mailing posted. The campaign was sent out in weekly waves of 6 or 7 a month, every month for 6 months to allow most efficient and effective follow up.
    The offer of a complimentary Direct Marketing Audit meeting was clearly communicated, and to create a sense of urgency, the offer it was limited to one a week.
  • 5. A Tough Nut to Crack!
    The Mailing
    The coconut used as a highly compelling analogy for Direct Marketing which, like a coconut, can be a tough nut to crack (unless you have the right DM skills and expertise). But if prospects let DMCM crack a brief for them it will really bear the fruit and give a real sense of achievement - just like that when a coconut is successfully cracked open!
    The campaign involved and engaged the targeted recipient y using all five human senses (sight, smell, hearing, touch and taste). The brochure design was that of a coconut, the letter was a ‘tropical leaf’ design, each one being personally signed to ensure the recipient felt special. The copy throughout was highly creative and included clear call to action.

    The Results
    Actual response was whopping 52.5%, over 220% of target.
    This rose to 97.5% (39/40) when non-respondents were followed up by phone.
    The campaign achieved a 15% conversion rate (6 responses converted to campaigns that went live in 2010), 500% over the target.
