How an Internet Marketer Should Go About Direct Mail

When you find yourself working online most of the time, it probably slips your mind that there are many other buyers that rarely if ever do so online, but would still be interested in your offerings. Remember, just because someone doesn’t use the internet is no reason to believe that they will not be interested in what you are selling. You need to keep in mind that you should utilize both online and offline marketing, especially now that competition is getting so stiff. Offline marketing has depended on direct mail for years as a way to reach potential buyers. Use this advice to create a successful direct mail campaign.

A surefire way to boost business, whether it is online or not, is by offering great promotional deals to your customers. It’s also a great idea to send out promotional codes or coupon codes so you can see exactly how well your marketing campaign is going. You want to make sure that every piece of direct mail that you send out will offer a special deal to the customer you have sent it to, providing them with a redemption code for your website. You may find that even the simplest of efforts, perhaps offering 10% off coupons with your web address posted on it, could bring in really big numbers in increased sales.

Don’t send out tons of mail to people, either. For one thing, sending mail through the post is expensive so if you send too much of it you could end up going through your marketing budget really fast. Another thing is when people get too much mail from the same person, they usually throw it in the garbage without even opening it. You want your customers to be excited when they receive your mail. The reason you sent it was for them to read it! This is your ambition. If you keep on spamming your customers with mail, you will achieve nothing other than filling up their recycling bin.

As with everything else you do with your marketing-make sure that all of your direct mail pieces have been checked for errors. Never allow a direct mail piece to be sent that has simple mistakes on it, like spelling or typos. This is especially true when you’re using direct mail to advertise your business, but also applies to any other content you produce. People are less tolerant when it comes to typos and the like in direct mail than they are with the same errors occurring in email. Check everything at least a few times before you send anything out!

Direct mail does not have to be intimidating or scary-especially once you start to make money from your efforts. Developing a good campaign of direct mail marketing can require a great amount of time. Once you learn the basics, however, the world is yours! You would be surprised at how much you can build your business up simply by using direct mail along with online marketing. All you have to do is run a test campaign. The proof will lie in your profit margins.

Network Marketing – Being Unique Instead of Competing

Today more than ever before there is quite a bit of competition in network marketing. According to the latest figures from the Direct Sales Association, there are over 15 million people involved in network marketing. That’s a lot of competition.

What I find amazing is that day after day I continue to find people who have never made a purchase from a network marketing consultant. So, maybe the competition is not as stiff as you thought it was?

My suggestion is to stop competing and instead become unique. I’ll share a story. Last week a woman emailed me. She wanted information. She told me right up front she was talking to someone else also. This other person lived locally. While I sent a few emails back and forth with her, I knew I could not compete. The new recruit wanted to work with someone local. I could’ve tried to convince her otherwise, but why? Instead I invested my time being unique and doing what I do best, which is sharing my words with others. Wouldn’t you know it, along came an email from someone who liked my words and was interested in joining. That’s where I invested my time.

Very often I see classified ads that are just one ad after the other. There is nothing special or unique about these ads. Every person is competing with every other person there. Try something different. Try being the unique person. Instead of the same headlines as everyone else, try a headline that offers a free eBook or free report. You can easily find these online. Sometimes these reports or ebooks will cost you $5 or so. Just think, for a $5 investment you can start saying “contact me for a free ebook.” You are no longer competing with every other ad out there as I almost never see offers for free reports or free ebooks.
