How to Join ERA in Just 3 Simple Steps

  1. Determine which membership type is right for you. Are you a direct response marketer or supplier?

    Marketer vs. Supplier - Where Do You Fit?

    • Marketer - A marketer or retailer is defined as a company that markets a product, service, or brand direct-to-consumers with a CTA (call to action).
    • Supplier - A supplier is defined as a company that provides services in the direct-to-consumer industry. Services may include, but are not limited to, agencies, business services, media buying, distribution, fulfillment, production services, or teleservices.

    Direct response marketing is a multi-layered and ever-evolving industry. If these definitions do not exactly fit your company, we're happy to consult with you on what the best fit is.
