If you are thinking of joining Impact Mailing Club or are already a part of Impact Mailing Club, or any other Make Money Mailing Postcard type program here are some tips to help with your success:
1. Choose the right company!
Don't fall for the hype. Look for a company that has the following:
Great stand-along product. This is a product that someone would buy even if there was no opportunity attached to it. (With Impact Mailing Club, our product is our Lead Membership Program. When you become a member, you receive high quality, targeted home-business lead packages you can use to promote any home-business. As a member you also have the ability to purchase discounted leads in the future). Other companies programs might sell training or some other type of product.
Excellent customer support. Make sure that you can contact a live person and have them answer your questions whether it is via email, chat or phone. (Impact Mailing club has excellent customer support - a real staff that handles different areas of the business, from signups, order forms, leads, spanish support, Canadian support etc.)
Transparency in ownership. A real person or team should be behind the company. The owner of Impact Mailing Club is Rose Alameda.
Growth and Innovation. You should always be looking for a company that is here for the long run. There should be an indication of product innovation, constant promotions, new training, new products. Hypey companies are usually just here to take your money and run. Direct Mail works and if done properly a company can be around for years and years.
2. Be Consistent
As with many home-business ventures, it is not uncommon that people "try" something for a bit and then quit when they don't see immediate results. The truth is, to have success with a mailing program, just like with any other home-business, network marketing program, affiliate marketing program or brick and mortar business, you need to be consistent. Mail again! Work within your budget but mail out your leads again and again. Sometimes, it is better to mail a smaller batch but consistently than a large one time mailing and then nothing! Yes, it is possible that you will see success with your first mailing and many people do but often times people need to see your offer a few times before they join.
3. Get Personal
People don't buy or spend money with strangers. They like to put a face to a name. Make sure you have a way for people to contact you. Don't just have a website or address for them to join. Put your picture on the postcard. Tell your story on your letter if it is fitting. You can also send them your Facebook profile.
4. Get Creative
Change it up a bit... Don't always mail the same thing. Mail a postcard. Then, mail a letter. Change up the letter. Write your story. Get creative with colors and copy. Don't always mail the same thing. Be different and get a little creative and you will stand out and get people's attention.
