The Lois Geller Direct Marketing Group Story

Fifteen years ago, we set up our brand new direct marketing agency at 261 Madison Avenue in New York City in a smallspace on the 15th floor. Six months after we moved in, we were working with a huge account and needed more space, so we took an entire floor and built a terrace outside for us to “reflect” on direct marketing questions. We were in that space for about a month, when that huge client had a shake-up and all the top management were let go, and so were we.

That sad event turned out to be a blessing. After that, we won some American Express business, then Chase came to us, and Canadian Pacific Hotels…we were rolling.

Then came 9/11. Every client retrenched, cut back, got scared. Ours didn’t and they flourished. So did we.

June 2004, our President’s mom was ill in Florida. Lois Geller was bouncing back and forth. We needed her. She said she’d work virtually from Miami, Florida. We have too much fun together, so we took a vote and we all moved with her to South Florida. We held our collective breaths to see if any of our clients would leave us. They didn’t.

We’re running our agency in Hollywood, Florida now. The palms swing outside our windows looking out on our marina. Our work is even better now. We’re even more outside the box than before. Why? Who knows…our creative director says that the pelicans inspire him.

Your program, campaign, database challenge interests us. We’re direct marketing junkies. Our site offers free resources and powerful consulting... So, please do call if you want to talk about your business.

Lois Geller Marketing Group DM Course

Sometimes we feel more like a Direct marketing School than an agency.

We teach direct marketing in our spare time. (The big idea is that when direct marketing is done right, it can’t fail. We work hard to explain the hows and whys of doing it right with live examples.)

We’ve taught Direct Marketing all over the US and Canada with side trips to Sweden, Russia and Turkey … in headquarters of different companies and organizations, at conventions and seminars and in colleges and universities. It didn’t just happen; we practiced for a long time.

Lois ran the main DM course at New York University for 10 years (Mike, our strategist, taught Creative, Strategic Planning and DM Math.) They also taught the NYU course to American Express marketing managers several times a year at their New York City headquarters across the street from the World Trade Center.

A few years ago, we developed a traveling version of the NYU course and called it DM Boot Camp. Usually it’s tailored to for the specific needs of the company requesting the training. We offer it in two day and one-day versions; the one-day is more intense.

In the Fall of 2008, we added another version called Direct Marketing Express which, if you’re interested, involves a thorough review of your DM program followed by our best practices recommendations.
