The challenge of multi-channel campaign management is an art, a balancing act, demanding the right content at the right time while delivering messages that meet your ROI goals. While I’m not taking on new consulting gigs, I am always thrilled to matchmake my favorite vendors with prospective clients. I’ve referred business to a direct marketing agency, a pay-per-click company, a graphic designer and a fulfillment house. And all parties are delighted.
In the meantime, I’m promoting my book Rockin’ ROI: How to Bootstrap Ecommerce with Performance-based Marketing and accepting speaking engagements and podcast interviews. I participate in discourse around marketing ROI, my passion topic.
I currently teach “How to Add Pay-for-Performance Affiliate Marketing to Your Mix” for the DMAnc.org. Students can take classes live or on demand and choose to complete a series to obtain a Digital Marketing Certificate. The next live class is Wednesday, April 6.
My penchant for cutting edge media options reflects the importance to me to know what’s coming, so I’ll have the answers. I’m always excited about new directions our industry is taking. We live in exciting times and they will continue to offer incredible opportunities for marketers. I created some digital products from presentations and materials for distribution through Etsy, mostly because I think marketers today should be on that platform too.
I’ve worked on the client side, the agency side and the TV station side, as well in media research. I know traditional advertising (print, radio & TV), infomercial (long form) and sixty-second (short form) direct response TV, affiliate, Internet and social media marketing as well as print, TV and web production. What’s more, I also understand the requisite package of direct response services from payment processing, TV production, telemarketing, fulfillment, club/upsell, Internet and social media.
It seemed perfectly natural to begin to blog and to join industry groups in LinkedIn to offer advice and share knowledge with peers and prospects. Teaching Media Planning at the college level and training countless staff provided a platform to give back and invest in great people to make them more valuable to their companies.
