  12. Feedback Publication Feedback: • “The (Deliver Green) issue was so comprehensive! It covered the challenges and benefits of going green and offered insight on issues from marketing and operations to finance. Not only was the issue about going green, the magazine itself was produced conservatively - preventing literally tons of natural resources from being wasted in the process.” - Justin • “The ability to position your message to both the mainstream audience and groups within the mainstream are critical to every aspect of marketing. Issue No. 6 provided provocative ideas that I have incorporated into my messaging strategy. I loved all the issues (with Issue No. 3 ‘Loyalty’ a close second).”- JeanAnn • “Insightful, relevant articles for the ever-evolving digital age. Truly an issue (and publication series) marketers can utilize for the best in DM practices. Keep up the great work!”
- Ryan Jaffe Partnership: • “I recently stumbled upon a marketing gem, and it couldn't be more poignant or timely. Joseph Jaffe, in a recent article in "Deliver" magazine, argues that starting a conversation with your target audience is what business should be thinking about now. Where is a large portion of this conversation already happening? You guessed it, on the big bad Web. Jaffe suggests that tools like blogs and social network sites like YouTube and MySpace have shifted marketing from a "one-to-many" conversation — business to the masses — to a "many-to-many" conversation — consumer to consumer with business joining in.” -Max
