“Direct marketing is any one-to-one communication, but the digital medium has completely revolutionized DM, and it will continue to do so. We’ve lived through the era of e-CRM and the e-mail marketing revolution and now we’re in the middle of the social media marketing boom. I’m also excited about direct to mobile and location-based marketing, which will be another revolution in the industry and one that will move direct marketing to the next level.”
— David Jones, Global CEO, EuroRSCG
