If you are the project leader, and the success of the project falls on your shoulders, no matter how great the people you have around you are, you have to know the critical financial information.
Advertising allowables, cost per leads or cost per orders, continuity projections, revenue contributions from clubs and retail, all have to be considered when understanding the profitability of media ran.
It's Not Rocket Science
But it does take some focused critical thinking and the experience of savvy direct response marketers to make it easy.
Being able to talk numbers with the accountants, partners and service providers let's them all know you know what it takes to make this project a success and its an important step in getting the project off the ground and rolling it out, once you've proven concept.
Managing the numbers means less mistakes. It means saving money, it means a better return on investment.
It is one thing to have a successful direct response marketing campaign, and it is another to do it efficiently with a team that can repeat the process over and over.
Direct Response moves at lightning speed. Everyone talks about how important the creative is, and getting the best media, but before you get that far, the financial realities have to be as clear as a laser beam.
The person who watches the financials ends up being the real leader of the project because they see the effects of tactics before anyone else. They know how to move the team according to the stats.
Manage the project through financial information. The language of Direct Response is a language of financial information. Our course, Financial DR Management: from Scorekeeping to Strategy is short, sweet and intensive. It was designed for Project Leaders, successful entreprenuers and CFO's of direct response projects.
In one day you will learn everything you need to know to manage the finances of a direct response campaign. Before you even start you will have a Marketing Projection Model for the whole project and the many vertical profit centers an integrated direct response campaign has.
You'll have a P&L spreadsheet on the finances of the product configuration you choose, in order to make sure you are pricing the product, upsells and other programs correctly. You'll also get a campaign P&L model to plug in real-time numbers as results come in. And even more, you will get a thorough analysis of how to look at media results. What reports you need from the media group, and how to get them to give you the management tools you need so that they can be at the same step as you are instead of one or two steps behind!
We will also cover the other post direct response opportunities and their related costs. Outbound telemarketing campaigns, print, catalogue and the strategies for entering retail.
