SANTA ANA, Calif. – The Direct Response Marketing Alliance (DRMA) and Response Magazine are proud to announce the 10 nominees for the Sixth Annual DRMA Marketer of the Year Award.
The 2013 winner – Euro-Pro LLC – returns to the competition, joining nine other companies that have enjoyed tremendous success during the past 12 months: Direct Holdings Global/Time Life, Hampton Direct, Ideavillage Products, Murad Inc., Positec, TELEBrands Corp., Top Dog Direct Inc., Tristar Products and Zumba Fitness.
“We consider this group a ‘perfect 10’ – a who’s-who of the very best marketers in the direct, digital and data-driven world,” says John Yarrington, publisher of Response and co-founder of the DRMA. “After allowing our Response Advisory Board to enter the initial nominees as part of the Sixth Annual DRMA Marketer of the Year competition, we would like to thank the 10 companies that have stepped up to the plate in 2014 by accepting their nominations. Not only that, but it’s a real thrill to have all three finalists back from 2013 – Euro-Pro, Hampton Direct and Tristar Products.”
The prestigious award recognizes the outstanding performance, accomplishments and innovation of a marketing company in the direct, digital and data-driven marketing industry. Previous winners include Euro-Pro LLC (2013), SENSA Products LLC (2012), Hearthware Inc. (2011), Your Baby Can LLC (2010) and Allstar Marketing Group (2009).
Once again, the winner will be determined by an E-mail vote of more than 5,000 eligible voters from across the industry. Third-party independent online election company Balloteer will contact DRMA members along with other industry leaders to take part in the balloting, which begins August 18.
