DMA Unveils New 'DM Unplugged' Blog; Thoughts from DMA Chairman Eugene Raitt and Colleagues
February 25, 2010 — “DM Unplugged,” a new blog authored by DMA Chairman Eugene Raitt, was officially launched today.
The formation of DM Unplugged was designed to provide members of the direct/digital marketing community with a forum to engage with some of the leaders of DMA, both to gain more insight into direct marketing and the Association, and to publicly comment on related trends. The blog will also provide readers with insightful advice and information on worldwide direct and digital marketing trends and developments. In addition to postings from Chairman Raitt, the site will also feature guest blog posts from other thought leaders in direct marketing and other marketing/advertising spheres.
DM Unplugged will also highlight recent news stories and links to other marketing/advertising blogs, websites and videos. Readers will have access to DMA’s digital publication Point and additional DMA offerings.
“I am thrilled to be undertaking this new project,” said Chairman Raitt. “No one knows direct marketing like DMA. In the digital era of instant communication, DM Unplugged will be an efficient and useful mechanism for sharing and receiving information that affects us all. We encourage anyone with an interest in direct marketing to visit the site.”
DM Unplugged can be accessed by visiting http://www.dmunplugged.com.
