However, in an economic downturn when every line on the budget is scrutinized, it can be daunting for professionals to justify spending on advertising and promotions. Marketing and advertising professionals find that they can not "do what they've learned to do" if they don't have the budget allocation to do it.

"We've posted some articles on our website to help bring some rationale to the table as to why it is not the time to downsize your ad budget," says Rainer Calandri, CEO of "We want to help business professionals put forward a narrative that explains why they need to stay the course with their advertising budgets - specifically their direct mail budgets - even in an economic storm."

Planning goals and objectives that are measurable at the beginning of campaigns and carefully monitoring outcomes can make it very easy to measure results against the initial investment. This is thinking that makes the corporate accountants happy and helps advertising and marketing professionals show real value for their organization.

Careful spending and keeping your brand and corporate messages in front of clients and potential clients are important during any economic season. "We believe there is information in these articles that our clients can use within their organizations to help focus their direct mail campaigns and help calm some of the nerves," says Calandri.
