  • And much more!
The DMA's Quarterly Business Review (QBR) allows direct marketers, agencies, and suppliers to benchmark their performance on such key metrics as current and projected revenue, profits, ROI, sales, employment, and a wide range of expenditure areas.

Marketer data is regularly broken out for Business-to-Business, Business-to-Consumer, and Catalog Marketer segments.

Quarter 4's Revenue vs. SQLY (Same Quarter Last Year) Index of 47 is the third time since Q2 2003 that this index has been in negative territory. Q4 2008 findings indicate growth in Profitability, with an index of 62 that is one point below the Q2 and Q1 index.

In the QBR index, a score of 50 represents no change in performance. Scores above 50 represent growth, and those below 50 represent a decline.
