What’s my "secret weapon" for generating all the sales leads you will ever need?
For many businesses, such as rental property owners, you can buy forms customized for that industry. A landlord kit, for instance, might have rental agreements, model leases, eviction notices, and so on.
Well, for starters, here’s what it’s NOT... .
- First, it's not e-mail marketing. With CAN SPAM laws and spam filters blocking so many e-mails, e-mail response rates are plummeting.
- Second, it’s not telemarketing, because "do not call" lists are making it increasingly difficult to reach your potential customers by phone.
- Third, it's not fax broadcasting. Laws on the books now prohibit fax broadcasting to strangers – so you can't promote your product to most prospects by fax.
- Fourth, it's not banner ads. Half your online ads never reach your audience because of pop-up blockers installed on their PCs.
- Fifth, it's not TV commercials. Thanks to Tivo, your prospects no longer watch many of your commercials, much less respond to them.
So what is my "secret weapon" in lead-generation marketing?
The answer may surprise you. It's a tried and true method that some "new media" whizzes deride as old-fashioned.
Yet it can be amazingly effective... easy to implement... and highly profitable.
I'm talking, of course, about... .
