Catalog Solution and Response Magazine

The Response Magazine which is a leading source of direct response marketing news has regularly published and recognized catalog solution's direct response marketing achievements. Below are some of the extracts:

Curtis Clarke, vice president of sales for Catalog Solutions in Westport, Conn., says, "Most DR companies think of the catalog business as back end. However, to work the catalog and print class of trade into their complete marketing proposal, they should start when the TV ads are going to be shot."
(Response Magazine, May 1, 2005)

Curtis Clarke, vice president of sales and marketing for Catalog Solutions Inc. in Westport, Conn., concurs, and says consolidation is rampant in the industry right now. "There was a big shakeup as the smaller players realized that they couldn't compete with the larger companies," says Clarke.
"They went for the clubs that would give them the most money," says Clarke.
"But in the long run, their customers didn't use the club or canceled it. These days, the smart marketers are spending more time ensuring that their customers use and benefit from the clubs, and are getting repeat customers as a result."

"Catalog Solutions Inc., a Westport, CT firm that specializes in catalog marketing, has spent the past 20 years placing ASOTV products into this popular direct response medium. Catalogs "keep the legs of a product going," according to Curtis Clarke, VP of sales."

"Catalog sales are not a back end form of marketing anymore, but rather a complement to TV advertising, says Curtis Clarke, Vice President of sales for Catalog Solutions, which places products in catalogs on a commission basis from a database of about 3,000 catalogs."

"We're finding that the vast majority of marketers still need to find a specialist to help them make the most out of their catalog sales," says Curtis Clarke, vice president of Catalog Solutions, a Westport, Conn.-based catalog product broker. "We try to get involved in the early stages of a campaign." Clarke suggests to clients that they have a still photographer on the video production set. He adds, "Response from the catalog ad increases when consumers recognize the talent from the TV campaign often times because they are wearing the same 'sweater'."
