Direct mail is a simple but very effective form of marketing. These days most people in the home business industry are attracted to this form of marketing because it is easily duplicatable and it is one of the safest ways to find success.
Before you start utilizing postcard techniques you first must understand what works and what doesn’t. Having a good sense of what it takes to be successful with direct mail will help you save yourself a ton of money by eliminating the costly mistakes I see many new marketers make on a daily basis.
When you start out you want to make sure that you’re mailing your postcards to a targeted list of buyers. You also want to make sure that your postcards have a very targeted message that will get your prospects to take action upon receiving your postcards in the mail. These two steps are very important and if you mess this up it could be the end of your business.
One common mistake I see new marketers make is, they mail out their postcards and then they sit back and wait for the money to roll in. This is a very bad mistake. You want to consistently mail out your postcards on a daily or weekly basis. Which ever works best for you. Do not worry about results initially. Just keep mailing cards and everything else will fall into place.
