About Priority Marketing:
telemarketing and direct mail
for business-to-business marketers

If your marketing plan calls for business-to-business success, there is one additional "between the lines" message we hope you’ll realize as you browse our site. Every business product, service and marketing problem has individualized elements. There are few common solutions, and even fewer "measurable" solutions. In fact there are only two business marketing tools that are genuinely measurable. They are tools that let us know what went right and even what went wrong when the results of a business-to-business marketing effort are evaluated. These two tools are telemarketing and direct mail.

For business-to-business marketers, one trend in particular is influencing how promotion dollars are being spent. Advertising in business trade journals and magazines is simply not working as it once did. The traditional process of running ads with reader interest numbers tied to "bingo" cards (requests for literature cards) has been crippled by prospects’ preference to more easily visit an advertiser’s web site.

Once a prospect visits your site, they browse and leave. Only a small number actually register. As a result, even if ads successfully drive readers to your web site, you are left with no lead to follow, and the advertising investment is lost. In short, the best possible print ad in a leading trade journal may simply not get the job done. It probably will not generate the leads, appointments or sales that are expected.

When journal ads don’t work

Through experience, Behind the Scenes has discovered, in today’s economy, there is no business-to-business marketing technique as productive as the mix of telemarketing and direct mail follow-up. These are both tools that allow us to know exactly who we are targeting and exactly what their response is. When we combine the tools of telemarketing and direct mail in a single campaign, we call it Priority Marketing.

Priority Marketing at Behind the Scenes incorporates everything we know about the creative use of marketing tools, including copy and design, and applies it toward direct telephone and direct mail contact with your most likely prospects.

Experience has shown that telemarketing in the business environment is both better received by prospects and more successful than its tarnished cousin, consumer telemarketing. Prospect lists based on SIC codes can identify exactly who the decision makers are in every industry and with surprising accuracy. These prospects can be solicited by phone and mail. When we develop a Priority Marketing plan for your product or service, none of the potential customers or clients in your prospect pool are left unattended. And marketing dollars are directed toward a measurable response.

Priority Marketing can generate real sales leads, real sales appointments, and in some cases, real sales. Please call us for more details about how Priority Marketing can work for your business-to-business product or service.
