Describe the brief/objective of the direct campaign.
Invite technical students from the Polytechnic for a career talk about jobs in the Navy.

Describe the creative solution to the brief/objective with reference to the projected response rates and desired outcome.
Despite the previous use of expensive premiums, the response rate from past direct mails was 0.5%. To break out of the mould, we sent a fold out poster with a distorted message and paper tools to decode the message.

Explain why the creative execution was relevant to the product or service.
Technically-minded prospects were intrigued to solve the message.

Describe the results in as much detail as possible with particular reference to the RESPONSE of the target audience including deliverability statistics, response rates, click throughs, sales cost per response, relationships built and overall return on investment.
This resulted in a 410% increase in the response rate compared to the Navy's last direct mail invite cost twice as much to produce.
