Are you letting your customers know what work you do best and how you can make their business more successful? Effective marketing establishes and promotes your brand. Your web site and marketing materials should, powerfully, demonstrate why they should do business with you.

Two excellent direct marketing magazines

I read two really good direct marketing magazines: Direct and Target Marketing. The magazines’ coverage includes e-mail marketing and many other marketing related issues. What really makes them good is that they are so well written, as, I suppose, you might expect from a group of people who make a living writing copy.

Denny Hatch (in Target Marketing) and Hershell Gordon Lewis (in Direct) always write very entertaining columns that always pack a thought provoking punch. There are always several other articles that are worthy of clipping.

So, whatever sort of marketing you are in, I highly recommend subscribing to these distinguished publications.
