ABR 2009: MRM Worldwide
“All marketing is increasingly direct marketing as digital media allows one-to-one dialog that is targetable and measurable.”
-- Reuben Hendell, CEO
As brands increasingly seek out highly targeted and measurable digital marketing solutions, MRM seeks to produce creative campaigns for its clients, through e-mail, search, online advertising, social media marketing or response-driven direct mail. The agency also has over 200 employees dedicated to data and analytics, including data strategists and statisticians. The company believes the rules of direct marketing have changed from the unidirectional direct mail, to the bidirectional interactive channel, to now the multidirectional social media.
