Latest trends:

The continued fragmentation of media that is being exacerbated by more and more digitalization of media has placed an emphasis on direct marketing skill sets for better targeting and measurement.

The audience targeting and measurement availability in the digital space vs. what has traditionally been available in mass media and the shift in marketing dollars to on-line is placing an emphasis on direct marketing skills.

The steep growth in marketing analytics for more marketing accountability put an increased premium on quantitative resources from the direct marketing space.

The access to better, faster and cheaper technology to facilitate more information exploration for better precision marketing.

The move to greater marketing accountability that had started in the early and mid 2000's was greatly accelerated by the poor economic climate in late 2008 and 2009 has placed a premium on quantitative marketing .
