What is Direct Marketing

It is very important and a major type of marketing. As it is clear by the name that in this a very targeted audience is chosen and small business approaches them directly or through the method of phone calls, messaging, email marketing, catalog distribution, what’s app messages, and many other methods. It can be called as direct response marketing.

As it is called due to the cancellation of the middle man between the brand and the consumer. It was proven a very good idea the earlier years when there was no internet. This marketing strategy has given billions of business to the businessman and that was the reason why business mans put their lots of money in this strategy to generate leads in their business that time but it is not like that this strategy works in today’s world also just only the channel through which it is operated has been changed and can give a businessman a good business out of it.

How direct marketing works

It is very different from another type of marketing as in direct marketing campaigns ads in mass media is not there. In this, we have to just deliver our sales pitch to the consumer by using various means like phone calls, messaging, email marketing, catalog distribution, what’s app messages, and many other methods.

In these type of campaigns are very effective for a business to grow and it can be proofed a very good strategy for a business as in these type of direct marketing campaigns the response rate is very quick and the marketer has not to wait for the result unlike to the other marketing strategies as in this the consumer’s answer comes in yes or no and no other tricks or waiting time is needed and by this the response rate is very quick. It is one of the favorite marketing strategies of marketer not because the response rate is very quick but also due to the accurate report of the direct marketing campaigns.

In this type of direct marketing campaigns, a marketer can confidently say that 10% or 15% conversion rate has come through the direct marketing campaign. In the effective direct marketing campaigns, some selected or targeted audience is taken and deliver the sales pitch in the massive form as like catalogs are sent only to some special or targeted audience in earlier years when there was no internet.

What are its advantages and disadvantages

According to me, Direct marketing becomes bad their when the sales pitch is delivered to a wide range of audience. It is not for some people as they after annoying a large amount of audience he gets some consumer for its business but he does not think that he had decreased its brand value in front of another large amount of audience by annoying them by sending emails, phone call, SMS, whats app marketing and many more. And it is very helpful if it is done in a good manner by taking only a small amount of targeted audience and deliver the sales pitch very efficiently then these type of marketing can give your business a J curve and can be proven a very good marketing strategy for your business. As we have already discussed that the response rate is very quick and reports are accurate.

What are its channels through which it operates

The medium through which our sales pitch is delivered to the consumer is called channels. There are many channels by which you get their offer or sales pitch. Some of the channels are given below;

Email marketing

It is one of the favorites and easy method to do for a marketer. As it is directly encountered with the consumer and act on its mind. In this type of marketing, marketer makes a basic email for all and sends it to all the persons or it’s a targeted audience.

Online marketing

As I have said above that this marketing strategy is effective today also and is due to the online tools we have nowadays to target our audience more precisely and can take a good business out of it. In this, these companies deliver their sales pitch or offer through ads you see on Facebook, Instagram, linked in, twitter, and many other social media sites. It a very effective method in the modern world as nowadays every person have accounts on these social media sites.

Mobile marketing

Basically, it includes SMS marketing in it and it is a very good source to get register on the consumer’s mind and make your brand. It is similar to email marketing as in this also marketer build a common message and forward it to it’s targeted audience. This type of marketing also includes whats app marketing, it is just the same as SMS marketing in this you have send the message on whats app and nothing else.

Telemarketing

It is also a form of direct marketing. In this sales pitch is delivered through a phone call to the consumer. It is one of the effective marketing strategies as in this consumer and the marketer are connected through their voice and in this type of marketing conversion rate is very high as you just touch the feeling of the consumer by your voice.
