Welcome to Dove Direct's Marketing Collateral Blog.  This week's blog features the second installment of the three-part series, The Internet of Things - Part 2 - "Personalization."

If you haven't noticed lately, or if maybe you have been taking for granted that personalized direct mail and emails with your name on them are just an ordinary, any day occurrence, then think again, particularly in instances where you are receiving one of these communication types for the first time, seemingly out of the blue.  Ever wonder how "they," businesses found you?  Well, I can certainly entertain the notion that leans toward the idea that it must be "The 6 Degrees of Separation," which suggests all of us are but a mere 6 persons away from knowing each other by association.  Nice try, however; I believe that notion misses the mark.

Welcome to Dove Direct's Marketing Collateral Blog.  This week's blog features the first installment of the three-part series, The Internet of Things - Part 1 - "Brand Equity."

As 2008 rolled around, accompanied by the Great Recession of 2008, notwithstanding the global economic woes, the planet had become laden with more Internet-enabled devices than the global population.  Hence, the Internet of Things (IoT) had been catapulted to the front of the communications line.
