What’s Working
Zip Code Models Can Find Gold in Muddy Response Streams
For direct marketers, the tight economy creates more interest in predictive modeling to boost results at the same or lower mail volume. Modeled co-op data is an option, but many response lists exist outside of the co-ops. While some shine without optimization, others need cherry-picking to go from marginal to profitable — and yet lack necessary demographics or firm-ographics. What to do? Consider a tried and true solution: the custom zip-code model.
Zip models are inexpensive to build, easy to apply, and completely “portable.” Call today to discuss your needs.
