Best Practices & Strategies
DSA has an extensive experience base involving many different industries, companies, marketing programs and technologies. We have seen the best practices at work… as well as some of the worst. Our best practices reviews include both insights gained from working with our clients as well as "state of the industry" surveys that we do in partnership with The Direct Marketing Association.
New Business/Product Development
Conceive and develop new marketing programs and/or new products for current direct marketing companies or other companies wishing to enter the industry. Business concepts are translated into complete Business Plans with provisions for concept testing; marketing research; product development; fulfillment; media, offer and creative testing; staffing and organization; and full five year financial projections and budgets.
Financial Planning/Budgeting and Analysis
Review existing systems and design new systems to improve the financial analysis, budgeting and reporting functions. Solutions are often PC based, but may also involve changes to clients' large scale operational systems.
