DMA INSERT MEDIA COUNCIL LUNCHEON SPOTLIGHTS METHODS FOR INCREASING RESPONSE RATES
NEW YORK, NY, February 14, 2005 - The DMA Insert Media Council will host a luncheon on March 15 at the Harvard Club of New York City where industry leaders will lead an in-depth discussion on ways to increase your response rates within insert media programs. "Lifting Response Rate in Your Insert Media Programs" will explore solutions that insert media professionals can apply when new test programs fall short of target acquisition costs, and when continuation programs don't meet acceptable performance levels.
A panel discussion, moderated by Dan Plunkett, senior vice president of marketing for Singer Direct, will focus on how to revitalize stale offers and develop creative and media plans that will inject new life into tired and worn-out programs. Panelists Joanna Degennaro, assistant director, package enclosures, Bookspan; Peter Mendelson, senior vice president of marketing, Gerber Life; and Steve LePera, media director, Mantis, will share exciting new ways to increase customer lifetime value, improve response rates, and reduce costs.
Other highlights of the panel discussion include:
*How to convert a low or non-performing insert media program into a profitable source of new customer acquisition;
* Dissecting results and creating a "what if" scenario based on different proven criteria used by experts;
* Improving the offer, format, creative, and CPM to breathe new life into an otherwise dormant or lackluster program.
