Six tips for maximum e-impact

Here's an example of a brilliantly designed communication.


1. A winning headline: Clean Up with Dawn and Earn up to 2,450 points!
2. "Reward your employees" positioning - a known need in this segment
3. A deadline - Hurry, this offer ends 1/31/07
4. Here's How: A simple explanation of how to calculate point earnings. (Lack of this component handicaps many offers)
5. Click here to learn more - a downloadable full line segment-specific brochure
6. Cross promote other relevant brands from the portfolio in the "P.S." position

Remember, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Simply provide art and set the trigger event(s) and your Coalition Manager will handle the rest. Once the rules are defined, it's "fire & forget" - whether you are communicating with a handful of operators (or thousands!) who achieve the milestone during the specified time frame.

This fact sheet details pricing.
