The present invention provides for a system and method for identifying optimal marketing offers in a mass marketing campaign. An optimal offer for a particular prospect at a particular time in the multi-wave campaign is determined. In accordance with one embodiment of the present invention, offer information is initially collected for each of the various offers tagged for potential inclusion into a. Each offer is analyzed to determine its eligibility for inclusion in a marketing campaign to a particular household or individual prospect within a household. A systematic evaluation of eligibility applies a plurality of predetermined criteria to each offer on a household level, a prospect level and an offer level. In this manner, offers failing such criteria may be easily removed from inclusion in the campaign. A net present value (NPV) and a net response rate may be calculated for each eligible offer to identify one or more optimal marketing offers.
