Nike uses the same approach to sell sneakers, and now this radical overspending strategy is being used by others, especially on the internet.

The thinking behind it is based on an all or nothing roll of the dice. Basically, because clutter is so pervasive, anyone who can successfully break through and create a new mass market product will reap huge rewards. The bar will be raised yet again, and the only winners will be the media companies that sell the air time and ad space in the first place.

Unfortunately, the clutter wars are taking their casualties at the agency side as well. The big agencies, the ones who could afford to take the lead in this challenge, are faced with three dismal problems: 1 First, clients are giving the agencies a much shorter leash.

Leo Burnett used to keep clients for twenty or thirty years. Companies that fired their ad agencies in the last year include Bank of America, Compaq, Goodyear, and many more. The best way to make money in advertising today is to download ad agencies and take them public. As a result, some of the best minds in the business have been focusing on building agencies, not brands.

Traditionally, agencies were paid by media companies. This meant that big clients could generate huge profits for the ad agencies, which funded work on new approaches to advertising as well as the innovative ads for new, smaller clients.

Human beings have a finite amount of attention. As the amount of noise in your life increases, the percentage of messages that get through inevitably decreases. Human beings have a finite amount of money. You have to choose. The more products offered, the less money there is to go around. In order to capture more attention and more money, Interruption Marketers must increase spending.

Spending less money than your competitors on advertising in a cluttered environment inevitably leads to decreased sales. Catch The more they spend, the less it works.

The less it works, the more they spend. Is mass marketing due for a cataclysmic shakeout?

A new form of marketing is changing the landscape, and it will affect interruption marketing as significantly as the automobile affected the makers of buggy whips. What if you could turn clutter into an asset? What if the tremendous barriers faced by Interruption Marketers actually became an advantage for you and your company?

The truth is that even though clutter is bad and getting worse, Permission Marketers turn clutter to their advantage. In fact, the worse the clutter gets, the more profitable your Permission Marketing efforts become.

Every marketing campaign gets better when an element of permission is added. At the very least, the basic concepts of Permission will help you formulate and launch every marketing campaign with greater insight and success. Interruption marketing fails because it is unable to get enough attention from consumers. People needed land to grow food, metal to turn into pots, and silicates and other natural elements to make windows for houses.

Tycoons who cornered the market in these and other resources made a fortune. By making a market in a scarce resource, you can make a profit. With the birth of the industrial revolution, and the growth of our consumer economy, the resource scarcity shifted from raw materials to finished goods.

Factories were at capacity. The great industrialists, like Carnegie and Ford, earned their millions by providing what the economy demanded.

Marketers could call the shots, because other options were scarce. Once factories caught up with demand, marketers developed brands that consumers would desire and pay a premium to own. When brands were new and impressive, owning the right brand was vital. With just a little effort and a little savings, we can get almost anything we want.

You can find a TV set in every house in this country. People throw away their broken microwave ovens instead of having them repaired. This surplus situation, or abundance of goods, is especially clear when it comes to information and services.

Making another copy of a software program or printing another CD costs almost nothing. Imagine a tropical island, populated by people with simple needs and plenty of resources.

Information on the web, for example, is plentiful and free. Software provides another example. The most popular web server is not made by Microsoft or Netscape.

Free to download, free to use. As resources go, information is not scarce. There is one critical resource, though, that is in chronically short supply. Bill Gates has just as much as you do. That scarce resource is TIME.

Consumers are now willing to pay handsomely to save time, while marketers are eager to pay bundles to get attention. Interruption Marketing is the enemy of anyone trying to save time. By constantly interrupting what we are doing at any given moment, the marketer who interrupts us not only tends to fail at selling his product, but wastes our most coveted commodity, time.

In the long run, therefore, Interruption Marketing is doomed as a mass marketing tool. The cost to the consumer is just too high.

The alternative is Permission Marketing, which offers the consumer an opportunity to volunteer to be marketed to. By only talking to volunteers, Permission Marketing guarantees that consumers pay more attention to the marketing message. It allows marketers to calmly and succinctly tell their story, without fear of being interrupted by competitors or Interruption Marketers.

It serves both consumers and marketers in a symbiotic exchange. Permission Marketing encourages consumers to participate in a long-term, interactive marketing campaign in which they are rewarded in some way for paying attention to increasingly relevant messages.

Permission marketing is anticipated, personal, relevant. Anticipated-people look forward to hearing from you Personal-the messages are directly related to the individual. Relevant-the marketing is about something the prospect is interested in. Permission Marketing takes the cost of interrupting the consumer and spreads it out, over not one message, but dozens of messages. And this leverage leads to substantial competitive advantages and profits.

While your competition continues to interrupt strangers with mediocre results, your Permission Marketing campaign is turning strangers into friends and friends into customers.

The easiest way to contrast the Interruption Marketer with the Permission Marketer is with an analogy about getting married. It also serves to exemplify how sending multiple individualized messages over time works better than a single message, no matter how impressive that single message is. New shoes. Fashionable accessories. Then, working with the best databases and marketing strategists, selects the demographically ideal singles bar.

Walking into the singles bar, the Interruption Marketer marches up to the nearest person and proposes marriage.

If turned down, the Marketer repeats this process on every person in the bar. If the Marketer comes up empty-handed after spending the entire evening proposing, it is obvious that the blame should be placed on the suit and the shoes.

The tailor is fired. The strategy expert who picked the bar is fired. And the Interruption Marketer tries again at a different singles bar. If this sounds familiar, it should. They hire an agency.

They build fancy ads. They interrupt people and hope that one in a hundred will go ahead and download something. And then, when they fail, they fire their agency! The other way to get married is a lot more fun, a lot more rational, and a lot more successful. A Permission Marketer goes on a date. If it goes well, the two of them go on another date.

And then another. Until, after ten or twelve dates, both sides can really communicate with each other about their needs and desires. And finally, after three or four months of dating, the Permission Marketer proposes marriage. Permission Marketing is just like dating.

It turns strangers into friends and friends into lifetime customers. Many of the rules of dating apply, and so do many of the benefits.

In the vernacular of dating, that means you have to offer something that makes it interesting enough to go out on a first date. A first date, after all, represents a big investment in time, money and ego. So there better be reason enough to volunteer.

Without a selfish reason to continue dating, your new potential customer and your new potential date will refuse you a second chance. It will be ignored.

But the incentive must be overt, obvious and clearly delivered. This is the most obvious difference between Permission Marketing and Interruption Marketing. Interruption Marketers spend all of their time interrupting strangers, in an almost pitiful attempt to bolster popularity and capture attention.

Permission Marketers spend as little time and money talking to strangers as they can. Second, using the attention offered by the consumer, the marketer offers a curriculum over time, teaching the consumer about the product or service he has to offer.

See a Problem?

The Permission Marketer knows that the first date is an opportunity to sell the other person on a second date. Every step along the way has to be interesting, useful and relevant. Instead of filling each ensuing message with entertainment designed to attract attention, or with sizzle designed to attract the attention of strangers, the Permission Marketer is able to focus on product benefits—on specific, focused ways this product will help that prospect.

Without question, this ability to talk freely over time is the most powerful element of this marketing approach. The third step involves reinforcing the incentive. Over time, any incentive wears out. Just as your date may tire of even the finest restaurant, the prospective customer may show fatigue with the same repeated incentive.

The Permission Marketer must work to reinforce the incentive, to be sure that the attention continues. This is surprisingly easy. Because this is a two-way dialogue, not a narcissistic monologue, the marketer can adjust the incentives being offered and fine tune them for each prospect.

Along with reinforcing the incentive, the fourth step is to increase the level of permission the marketer receives from the potential customer. Permission to provide a product sample.

The range of permission you can obtain from a customer is very wide, and limited only by its relevance to the customer. Now you can live happily ever after by repeating the aforementioned process while selling your customer more and more products.

In other words, the fifth and final step is to leverage your permission into a profitable situation for both of you.

Remember, you have access to the most valuable thing a customer can offer — attention. Five Steps to Dating Your Customer 1. Offer the prospect an incentive to volunteer 2.

Using the attention offered by the prospect, offer a curriculum over time, teaching the consumer about your product or service 3. Reinforce the incentive to guarantee that the prospect maintains the permission 4. Offer additional incentives to get even more permission from the consumer 5. Acquiring solid, deep permission from targeted customers is an investment.

What is one permission worth? Does American Express earn enough in fees to justify this expense?

Not at all. But the other benefits associated with acquiring the permission to market to a cardmember outweigh the high cost.
