Letters to the Editor
“Eureka” indeed! Finally, a publication, All About ROI, is willing to really dive into the challenges that multichannel marketers, like ourselves, struggle with every day. The topics in All About ROI delve into the detailed decisions we need help with NOW. Today, we are all discussing how much spend we should give online versus offline promotions and how to allocate response to multiple channels. As Paul Miller says in The Editor’s Take, our customers want to use every channel as they wish. For us to be competitive, we need to provide what they want.

Really enjoying your new read! Especially the cover story about Gaiam. All the folks at National wish you great success with the new magazine — which really is a great combination. Your magazine is a fine example of reinventing yourself and staying viable — we all must do that to a degree.
Lynda Swann and crew, National Wholesale
Congratulations on the new name! The ROI focus is clear. I like the change! Your electronic format works quickly and smoothly. The implementation of choosing pages to print is intuitively simple.

Relevant and Useful
Congratulations on your new publication, All About ROI. Content in your inaugural issue certainly is relevant, and I hope that readers will find it useful, as I did.

Re: Check it Out and Bonobos’ use of Facebook, what a great story! It’s good to see small businesses being able to tap outlets like Facebook. If Facebook ads work so well and are cost-effective, is that all they need to get to profitability?

Outlook Went Overboard
As a multichannel merchant with a 72-year history in the retail industry, what a good thing it was that I so carefully read your June 2009 issue! Carefully tucked in the back of this issue was an article proclaiming the end of the retail industry as we know it! Certainly, an article of this importance should have been the cover story so that other merchants in the retail industry would be sure to be apprised of this breaking news. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next issue so that I can find out what date the retail industry will be expiring as this will allow me to properly set up for our going out of business sale.
