Who is most likely to respond? Where can you find (more of) them? What creative approach will lift response? Each of these questions (and more) must be answered and regularly reassessed. The difficulty is that each question requires a separate knowledge base to answer thoughtfully.
At American Direct when we say “campaign strategy” what we are really talking about is a series of strategic decisions that are linked together to create a compelling marketing campaign.
From creative development to proofreading, printing logistics to programmatic media buys, and list sourcing to predictive analytics, we have specialized teams dedicated to every aspect of our client’s campaigns.
For almost 40 years this holistic approach has been core to our client’s success.
Effective marketing strategy and execution requires precision and comprehensive knowledge. Our tenured staff of 85 is small enough to be nimble, large enough to handle any size campaign, and deep enough to provide unrivaled expertise.
Each client is assigned a dedicated Account Management team lead by a Senior Account Executive. Together they orchestrate and manage the campaign from top to bottom.
There are psychological motivators driving every decision consumers make. That’s why our creative process begins by identifying the psychological framework which will generate the highest response. The result: copy, offer, format, and design elements which are seamlessly brought together with careful stage management.
