“A simple concept ties this incredibly useful book together.

Every marketer now is an iDirect marketer. You ignore this

concept, and this book, at your own peril.”

is in the confluence of digital and direct to form a torrent of minimal

cost/maximal result opportunities. Rapp’s vision of an iDirect future and the

insights of the book’s contributors put marketing supremacy in your grasp.”

turn. Rapp compiles the best thinking on a future with low-cost and no-cost

connections between products and consumers. Essential reading for marketers.”

Chris Anderson, author of The Long Tail

“Direct marketing is interactive, and interactive marketing is direct. With

an ‘iDirect’ mindset, digital platforms and innovative analytics impact the

data-driven, online, offline, lead-generating, customer-retaining, multichannel

direct marketing process. Rapp’s vision for reinventing marketing is a wake-up

call for CMOs to think and act differently in a profoundly changed world.”

John Greco, President and CEO, Direct Marketing Association

“It’s increasingly important to rely on an agency for accountable

iDirect solutions. The advertising agency of the future must be adept

at reinventing yesterday’s interactive, direct and branding. Rapp’s

cohort of experts show the way in this book.”
Michael McCathren, Chick-fil-A Conversation Catalyst

About the Book

Reinventing Interactive and Direct Marketing

focuses on how to benefit from a fundamental

truth about marketing in the digital era. Interactive

Marketing is direct. Direct Marketing is

interactive. What has been seen mistakenly as

separate disciplines actually are one and the

same. Every marketer now is an interactive

direct marketer.

To help you profit from this new reality, Stan

Rapp introduces a new paradigm—iDirect—

the 21st-century growth engine at the intersection

of digital technologies and direct

marketing practices. The gap between what

you once took for granted and the iDirect

Marketing future is so vast that a team of

thought leaders is needed to deal with it. No

one person has all the answers.

In this book, Rapp brings together marketing

luminaries with a variety of perspectives that

will open your eyes to astonishing, new opportunities.
