Wynn's Direct Marketing Campaign

Posted by detroit1051

A friend alerted me to a Wynn article in DM News, a trade publication. It describes the mailing of 205,000 "video enhanced CD-ROMs" in June and 65,000 more in July. The results have been very impressive. Wynn has tracked 164,000 unique IP addresses uploading and viewing the CD-ROM.

Unfortunately, there was a major factual error in the piece which hurts the credibility of DM News. The article discusses Wynn's competitor, Trump International Tower & Hotel which "...opened across the street a few months after the Wynn debuted last year." Further, "...the resort is not only looking to gain ground against high-end resorts like the Trump...".

I wrote a Letter to the Editor of DM News, pointing out that Trump is not open, is a condo-hotel and is not a direct competitor to Wynn. You wonder what kind of fact-checking DM News does.

I have to say I'm impressed with the editor of DM News. He replied to my email within ten minutes, on a Sunday no less. He apologized and asked my permission to run my email as a Letter to the Editor. I suggested he talk with the writer first just to make sure I didn't misinterpret anything.

The editor did all the right things: he acknowledged my email promptly, apologized and wants to set the record straight. You can't ask for more than that once an error has happened.

Very ethical. And you as well, Detroit, for giving him the chance to square things with the author.
