The magazine supplement will comprise case studies, research and how-to tips on lists, database marketing/CRM and data services for customer acquisition, retention and reactivation. It will complement DM News' continued print and online coverage of response-oriented multichannel marketing.
Senior editor Melissa Campanelli will edit the edition, which is part of DM News' Essential Guide series including editions on e-mail marketing, search engine marketing and direct response television (now available as PDFs on http://www.dmnews.com/cms/dm-opinion/essential-guides.html).
Industry experts and practitioners, both client and supplier side, may write 400-word, tightly edited pieces on topics like choosing a list broker or manager, the merits of buying lists or renting, modeling, co-op databases, data privacy, list fatigue, ethnic lists, list negotiations, regulation, merge/purge, data quality, audience segmentation, customer loyalty, lead generation, data hygiene and strategies for segmentation, acquisition, retention or reactivation. Case studies will illustrate these tactics and strategies, supported by related research.
Each article will include the author's name, title, company, city, state and e-mail address along with a high-resolution color jpeg headshot and images to illustrate the piece. Please contact Ms. Campanelli with ideas for articles at firstname.lastname@example.org. The e-mail's subject line should read "list guide." Once commissioned, the article's turnaround time is 10 days. Deadline for complete submissions is Nov. 30.
