Benefits of Running a Direct Mail Business
This is the second in a series of articles to do with Direct Sales and Marketing for the month of February. So here we go learning the benefits of running a direct mail business.
With the right product and the right system there are many advantages in operating a direct mail business – including:
- You can start on a shoestring budget. Starting with a budget of less than $60 you can build a direct mail business that can make you more than two hundred thousand dollars a year!
- You don’t need employees or a retail store or office space. You can run the entire business by yourself at home, and you can do it in your spare time!
- No selling is involved. You will never have to go face-to-face on a single sales call as your customers respond to your ads and direct mail letters and emails.
- No inventory investment. The product can be sent directly to your customers from the supplier.
- Unlimited income potential! Correct advert placement in the right places on the internet, or in the right magazine or newspaper can be seen by millions of people and produce thousands of customers. Plus, anytime you want to get more customers and more money, you just place more ads.
- Best of all, the whole business can be run on autopilot. After you place your ads you can sit back and watch the orders pour in. You can even use a service bureau to take and process your calls.
This adds up to a fantastic business. You can earn as much as you like and you won’t be tied to a store. You can spend your time with your loved ones, traveling the world, or just enjoying the good life (very few other jobs or businesses offer you that sort of lifestyle!).
SO …..! If this is such a fantastic business, why isn’t everyone involved in it?
Well…. While it is true that fortunes can, and are, being made in direct mail, most people who get into the business never make a cent! Simply because:
They do not know what they are doing and do not have the right product or system.
