Trend Spotting: Direct Digital Marketing in 2010

Over the next two installments of The Lunch Pail, I will provide some foundation for two of the more promising trends in direct digital marketing. I first mentioned the recently published retail interactive marketing research from Forrester’s Shar VanBoskirk on Monday, specifically detailing the valuable roles of personalization and relevance in direct digital marketing. One […]

Personal Direct Digital Marketing

We write a great deal about the retail industry here at The Lunch Pail. The retail industry is a major player in the world of direct digital marketing because it acts as "the establishment" within the direct digital marketing user group.

Knotice in USA Today, Mobile Marketer

It stands to reason that soon after I communicate some recent press clippings for The Lunch Pail’s roster of writers that more emerge, and my hand is forced again. This time some major national publications join the ranks of the various industry publications gathering opinions from our experts. Again displaying the flexibility of the direct […]

Behavioral Targeting Update, Battlefield Media

Use Targeting To Boost Loyalty

A recently published eMarketer report quantified the value of email loyalty programs for consumer packaged goods companies. The report revealed some amazing numbers that beg two questions.

Knotice Recognized For Rapid Growth

On Friday I wrote about how Knotice has contributed a great deal of content to media publications in a variety of different industries and coverage areas.

Trend Spotting: CPG and Direct Digital Marketing

E-Marketer released an interesting report this week entitled, CPG Marketers Go Digital at Point of Sale. Normally this concept would not find its way onto the menu of topics at The Lunch Pail given our focus on direct digital marketing and its primary channels of email, Web, and mobile. However, the last of the communications […]
