Special Focus:Winning the Media Game
Unique training offered only by the
Direct Response Academy

Now anyone running a DRTV campaign can learn how to manage media buying – whether you’re an experienced general marketer or just starting out.  Until it was introduced by the Academy, the information in this course was available only to media executives. 
Why is it so important?  Because media buying takes the majority of an infomercial marketing campaign budget - and requires the most skill to manage.  Without this training, marketers who don’t understand how DRTV media management works can waste their efforts and watch their campaign dollars slide away.  

Buying media for infomercials is complex.  So learning how it works is absolutely key – whether you need to be on an even keel with your media agency or are managing your DRTV media buying in-house.

Course Leader

Over nearly 20 years in the Direct Response industry, Greg Sarnow has managed countless DRTV campaigns.  Greg also ran one of the industry’s largest DRTV media buying companies for over 6 years, giving our course participants access to a unique DRTV authority.
