"We knew Alexis Vogel Cosmetics could be much more than just
a one-time sale through our infomercial. We wanted to establish
a great continuity program, and have customers come back time and
time again. Of all the choices we could have made, I know everyone
here is thrilled that we chose Shari Altman and the ADD team. They
became our hands-on, direct response marketing partner, laying out
a step-by-step merchandising and marketing plan; internet, email,
seasonal catalogs, inbound and outbound telemarketing, print, customer
service, you name it. They not only showed us what needed to be
done, but were there every step of the way, to make sure things
got done right. There are so many mistakes and bad choices you can
make in this business, that waste time, money and can literally
turn away customers. I consider us extremely fortunate to have made
the great choice of Shari Altman and ADD." Mark Olson, Director of Direct Response Operations, Integrity Global Marketing
