Direct Response Marketing is the ultimate marketing strategy for dog business owners.

What is Direct Response Marketing?

Principally, the purpose of direct response marketing is to encourage your target audience (the people most likely to buy your product or service) to take an immediate, specific action. This is achieved by offering your prospects a ‘lead magnet’ this is normally a free, desirable resource (in exchange for their email address) that they just can’t resist, much like offering a dog a tasty dog treat, they ain’t gonna want to say no, instead they will snatch your hand off!


Why offer a ‘Lead Magnet?

The sole intention of lead magnets is to capture email addresses, as this provides you with the perfect opportunity to follow-up their initial ‘interest’ with a sequence of informative, non salesy, useful and supportive emails, aimed at gently nurturing them to the point of making a purchase.

Lead Magnets come in all different formats, for instance: An E-Book, A Webinar, Product Sample, A Service Trial, Training Video or any other be free gift that your prospect would find highly beneficial.


How do you promote your ‘Lead Magnet?

Once your Lead Magnet has been created it needs to be promoted to your target audience so they can input their email address and proceed to accepting your free offering.
