Every marketer now is an iDirect marketer. You ignore this concept, and this book, at your own peril.” Al Ries, author of War in the Boardroom “How do you get your brand heard, trusted, and remembered? The answer is in the confluence of digital and direct to form a torrent of minimal cost/maximal result opportunities. Rapp’s vision of an iDirect future and the insights of the book’s contributors put marketing supremacy in your grasp.” Tim Suther, SVP, Acxiom Global Multichannel Marketing Services “The internet brings about the reinvention of everything. Now it is marketing’s turn. Rapp compiles the best thinking on a future with low-cost and no-cost connections between products and consumers. Essential reading for marketers.” Chris Anderson, author of The Long Tail “Direct marketing is interactive, and interactive marketing is direct. With an ‘iDirect’ mindset, digital platforms and innovative analytics impact the data-driven, online, offline, lead-generating, customer-retaining, multichannel direct marketing process. Rapp’s vision for reinventing marketing is a wake-up call for CMOs to think and act differently in a profoundly changed world.” John Greco, President and CEO, Direct Marketing Association “It’s increasingly important to rely on an agency for accountable iDirect solutions. The advertising agency of the future must be adept at reinventing yesterday’s interactive, direct and branding. Rapp’s cohort of experts show the way in this book.” Michael McCathren, Chick-fil-A Conversation Catalyst About the Book Reinventing Interactive and Direct Marketing focuses on how to benefit from a fundamental truth about marketing in the digital era. Interactive Marketing is direct. Direct Marketing is interactive. What has been seen mistakenly as separate disciplines actually are one and the same.
