Marketing Secrets of a Profitable, Multimillion Dollar eretailer You Probably Never Heard of

Summary: Some mainstream marketers don't take DRTV (direct response television) advertisers very seriously, because infomercials and QVC plugs can seem kind of chintzy compared to a glamorous Madison Avenue branding campaign.

But, at $2 billion a year, the DRTV industry is bigger than you may think.

Case Study #CS22782: Almost Triples Ad Sales While Growing Paid Online Subscribers

Summary: This Case study falls under the heading of "kids don't try this at home" because mixing the ad sales and subscriber-only content business models online is something that only a very few, exceptionally well branded and positioned publications can manage.

Case Study #CS22766:

Seattle Lab Raises Sales 44% by Email Marketing to IT Professionals

Summary: Like many high tech firms, Seattle Lab used to be run by engineers. Which meant that the Lab's marketing was pretty much non-existent. Still they did all right because they developed quality software products, and had a solid in-house sales team of five hard-working reps. But you can only grow so far without solid marketing behind you. So they hired direct response marketer, Heather Fairchild.

In less than nine months she's revamped their marketing database, launched a customer communication email program, tested dozens of email rental lists, and made Seattle Lab's resellers very, very happy. This is a great Case Study if you are looking for ideas to steal that are cost-effective and responsible about ROI. continue...
