  1. 1. CLIENT CASE STUDY Mommie Helen’s Bakery Nobody knows direct marketing better! Mommie Helen’s Bakery Marketing Challenge Entrepreneur Dorothy Pryor Rose experienced some success carrying on the family tradition of baking cobblers, pies and cakes. Word spread, and soon TV celebrities and professional athletes, like Shaquille O’Neal, were asking for her desserts by name. So when Oprah Winfrey’s O Magazine would have a product write-up, Rose was both ecstatic and panicked. Her website was static, information-starved and hungering for proven e-commerce capabilities to entice and fulfill web orders. With little money, little time and little e-commerce know- how, how could transform itself to meet this unexpected national press opportunity? Creative Direct Marketing Group got into high gear to strategize this winning game plan: ➊ Create direct response copy and artwork that’s at the heart of making every e-commerce website work. The copy needed to capture readers’ interest and pull them through to the offer, while the graphics needed to utilize the science of eye direction to ensure the words would get read. ➋ Revise Mommie Helen’s order-taking and shipping capabilities that would meet a surge of new customer needs. ➌ Grab customer user data and present analytics that would be instantaneously helpful in knowing what was working. Direct response microsite turns entrepreneur’s pie business into an e-commerce powerhouse Creative Solution Creative Direct Marketing Group knew that using direct response rules was the key to making a profitable marketing vehicle. Here are a few of the microsite creative elements for the Mommie Helen’s Bakery microsite: ➤ Personalize Dorothy Pryor Rose to her audience with a short, photographic story on how Mommie Helen’s Bakery got its start from homemade pies at potlucks… to growing virally by word of mouth from family and friends, then blossoming into a brick-and-mortar. ➤ CDMG has Rose opening the site with Direct response copy, art and strategy in microsite helped skyrocket total sales 250%.
