Money in the Mail
Ever dreamed about going to your mailbox and pulling out a fistful of checks?
Mail order, simply defined, is a way to generate merchandise sales in two ways:
1.By mailing catalogs or other sales tools
Mail order is exciting and fun, but it's also a highly competitive, potentially expensive marketing method, and if you don't know the rules of the game it can cost you plenty in terms of time, effort, and money. Mail order is definitely NOT something you want to learn by trial and error.
Some Things to Keep in Mind About Mail Order:
1.It's one of the most expensive and risky marketing methods to start.
2.It's a numbers game; the more catalogs you send, the more chances for orders.
3.The industry response rate to "prospect lists," (as opposed to your own custom list), is less than 1 %. Your customer list response rate will probably be higher.
4.The best mailing list is your own.
1.You can do it part-time.
2.You can generate orders all day, every day.
3.You don't have to do any face-to-face selling.
4.You can work all day in your underwear (except when you go to the mailbox!)
5.Your age, gender, education, and physical mobility are not factors that can stop you from succeeding.
6You can take the day off whenever you want; your catalogs are still out there selling!
