MediaCom USA Launches Response Division

NEW YORK, Feb. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MediaCom Worldwide is renaming its MediaCom Direct division to better reflect pervasive shifts in both consumer behavior and global marketing strategy. "MediaCom Response" will now be the name of one of the largest direct engagement practices in the media industry.

MediaCom Direct has a rich history.  When launched in 1992, the division worked primarily with clients utilizing print, door drops and DRTV to reach target audiences. A decade later, marketers began adding unique URLs to most of their efforts, and – today – the integration of brand, demand generation and demand conversion has become the norm.  MediaCom has been at the forefront of these changes, pioneering sophisticated business modeling techniques in order to properly attribute campaign performance.

MediaCom Response in the U.S. is run by Jason Lim, who joined as Managing Partner in 2010 from Halogen Response Media. "The principles of direct response remain the same, but consumer response patterns, an exploding number of information sources and the ever-evolving media marketplace has created an environment that is far more nuanced than ever before," said Lim. "'MediaCom Response' acknowledges this dynamic and is more reflective of the integrated approach we use to help clients attract and build stronger customer relationships."

Outside the U.S., MediaCom will have Response divisions in the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, Nordics, Poland, Singapore, China, India, Australia and Canada. It is also expanding the division's global footprint in APAC and LATAM.
