Direct Mail Response Devices and How to Craft Them


Successful direct mail packages contain three things: an attractive offer, a call to action, and a response device. The offer is the Incentive.

Business to Business Direct Mail Sales Letters Need an Offer (and Heres Why)


In direct mail, the offer is the incentive or reward that you dangle in front of your prospects to motivate them to respond to your mailing. In business-to-consumer direct mail, for example, a magazine publisher will offer a yearly subscription to its magazine at 60% off the newsstand price.

Direct Mail Sales Letter Mistakes to Avoid


Some companies that use direct mail to sell their products and services are like the blind man in the dark room looking for the black cat that isn't there. They repeat the same mistakes, and enjoy the same poor results.

Qualify Prospects Using Direct Mail Marketing


When a prospect responds to your lead generation sales letter, how do you know if the prospect is a qualified lead or not? By qualifying them before they respond.At my direct mail lead generation firm, our definition of a qualified lead is someone who meets four criteria:Authority: They have the authority to buy Readiness: They are ready to buy now Budget: They have the budget to buy Need: They need your product or serviceAnyone who meets some of these criteria but not all is simply a lead that needs to be cultivated.

Nurture Sales Leads with Direct Mail Marketing


Direct mail is a cost-effective way to make sales and generate leads. But it's also an excellent way to keep your brand name in front of customers, and to nurture leads until they become customers.

Brochures that Generate Sales Leads (and How to Write Them)


One rule in direct mail is that your letter sells your offer and your brochure sells what you're selling. For example, let's say you mail a classic direct mail package to generate sales leads for your enterprise software product.

Business to Business Direct Mail Offers that Say Free


In direct mail, the offer is the incentive or reward that you dangle in front of your prospects to motivate them to respond to your mailing, either with an order or with a request for more information.Offers follow a "you do this and we'll do that" format.

Direct Mail Offers: Eight Steps to Making them Effective


Every direct mail package you drop in the mail should contain an offer. The offer is the incentive or reward that motivates prospects to respond to your mailing, either with an order or with a request for more information.

Using Business Cards as Invitations


Business card size works well for invitations to special events.What do you visualize when you think about invitations? More than likely you are thinking about a wedding or a party.

FREE Means MORE Business


Why give freebies?We have all seen freebies at trade shows and we have all probably seen the person that goes from booth to booth collecting as much of it as possible. There is always someone that only goes to get the free stuff, but then again there are also people that go there to learn about new products or services.

Business Cards that Make Them CALL


How would you use business cards for gift certificates?I asked at the beginning of this chapter "How many business cards do you need?" and answered that you only need one. Even though this is true when you are trying to form business relationships, it is not true when it comes to promoting your business.

Do You Know Where Your Email Address is Today?


Having people go to your website is not always easy: remind them with a special business card.Whether you understand it nor not, the web is likely here to stay; those businesses that do not yet have a web presence, or at least email addresses, are likely to get left in the dust.

Doing it with Class!


Doctors do it, hair dressers do it, and salespeople can do it too.I have been working with a chiropractor for a few months and when it came time to give me a new appointment, she would use a quarter sheet of paper to check off the appointment time.

Recipe for Success


Special event and a special recipe- hand it out on a business card.I have seen many real estate people, give out recipes with their newsletter.

The Greatest Business Tips are FREE


The best way for someone to hang on to a tip is on a business card.Do you remember seeing the TV commercials of OSH Hardware stores, the ones where they give out time saving tips on things like squeaky floors and a host of other common household problems? The tips are well received and they are getting their name associated with "the answers are out there".
