Managing director Simon Reynolds at Iconic Strategies
insists customers want consistent, relevant communication and direct marketing is able to meet these demands with the added bonus of a personal touch.
Iconic Strategies reviews the benefits of direct marketing, following reports that customers demand personalised marketing methods from retailers. According to the 02’s ‘The Rise of Me-tail’ study, 56 percent of consumers said that they would be more inclined to use a retailer on the sole basis of a personalised customer’s experience. Cheryl Calverley, the marketing manager at masterbrand Birds Eye claimed that ‘consumers now expect an end-to-end, personalised conversation and experience with a brand. Marketers that fail to embrace this and continue with a one-size-fits-all creative and communication strategy will simply not be part of the conversation” (www.marketingweek.co.uk).
Norwich’s leading outsourced sales and marketing firm Iconic Strategies specialise in direct marketing at events and private on-site promotions. Managing director Simon Reynolds
claims the sole reason for choosing this method is because it allows them to engage and interact with their customers on a face-to-face basis. Direct marketing delivers a consistent personalised experience. and enables Iconic Strategies to build a trusting relationship with prospects.
