Make Europe your Market



New Customer Acquisition

A new index compiled by Royal Mail and the Marketing Society explores how the UK's top marketers plan to use their budgets over the next six months. It covers the key drivers, areas of focus and priority channels.

A key factor revealed by the survey is that instead of focusing on retention, which has previously been regarded as vital to ride out the recession – 28% of the senior marketing directors polled say they'll be concentrating on customer acquisition to boost the bottom line.

The results also show that 26% of marketing directors are optimistic about their budgets, believing they will increase before January 2010.

Amongst the marketing mix it is traditional direct mail and SEO/Natural search that were cited as the two most important tools to be used. Boosting sales and the bottom line however, as one would expect still remains a priority.

If you are looking to implement new customer acquisition plans in the new year, you will know that using quality data for your campaigns is critical to your success. Whether you take a traditional direct mail or a newer e-mail marketing approach or a combination of both, ensuring that you are getting to the right target audience and eliminating waste remains as important as ever.
