This is a branding agency that maximizes the potential of the brands that hire them. They are in Prague and have over 15 years of experience in global campaigns. They devised a plan for direct marketing with an impactful copy "We'll give our blood for good branding" and a graphic design that really was up to the message. This really is one of the great examples of direct marketing that has impacted us more!
In order to be successful in direct marketing, companies usually have to compile large databases of personal information about potential customers and clients. These databases are often sold to or shared with other marketing conglomerates. Most databases are computerized, which makes them very easy to update as consumer information changes. Things like purchase history, address, and average income can all help shape a marketer’s profile of a potential customer.
I’ve been part of WA off and on for a few years. Every time I think about leaving the one thing that keeps me there is Jaaxy. They now offer a “lite” version of Jaaxy as part of the membership. (not the trial 30 searches but a version you can use every month as much as you like) I don’t know how else I would find good keywords (besides google itself which doesn’t give numbers). If I were to pay for hosting AND Jaaxy outside of WA it would cost me more than the membership for WA. Any suggestions?
I have a couple lessons to finish with the bootcamp, and what I’m thinking about doing if I even think about continuing to blog is create a site not around WA but to help others figure out how to make money online, wordpress, how to create a website, select a hosting platform like Hostgator which I had previous experience with before WA, clickfunnels and so forth. But yeah, it’s been real, and an eye opening experience. I’ll likely be transferring my domains back to Hostgator here.
However, the biggest thing, that influenced my decision toward this company was the fact that, they allow people to test drive (try them out) as a free member. As in free member for as long as one wishes. Also, they allow the more serious ones to take advantage of their premium membership which is the maximum learning, that's packed with tons of value and support.
Just a slight correction, Eurgene. I didn’t actually cancel my membership, I just simply had my write access taken away. Technically I am still a member and I still receive monthly commissions for the small number of Premium referrals I still have, which has been steadily declining and is now at just two members. I am on a yearly membership, though, and that runs out soon, so I might cancel then.
Kanayo, You made the smart decision. IM is incredibly labor intensive and if you can’t conceivably devote the time and energy required, it’s not worth pursuing. I arrived at a similar conclusion once my agency business grew to a point where I had to choose one path or the other. For me, as it was for you, the choice was easy. At the end of the day, I feel much more fulfilled when I’m helping others rather than simply making money.
I suggest that if you are not ready to put time, effort and a little money into building a website that you do stay a starter member, and look around. Use the information that is available. But please don’t expect to get everything for free. If your boss only paid you to work one hour a week, would you put in the effort to work 40. If you are not prepared to pay for further information, please be thankful for that which you can access for free.

Direct marketing is attractive to many marketers because its results, positive or otherwise, can be measured directly. For example, if a marketer sends out 1,000 solicitations by mail and 100 respond to the promotion, the marketer can say with confidence that campaign led directly to a 10% conversion. This metric is known as the 'response rate', and it is one of many clearly quantifiable success metrics employed by direct marketers. In contrast, general advertising uses indirect measurements, such as awareness or engagement, since there is no direct response from a consumer. Measurement of results is a fundamental element in successful direct marketing.
