Techniques For Marketing Your Business

I have to ask you a question. This is a question that you probably have thought of before, but were giving yourself the wrong answer to it over the last couple of years. And even myself have been guilty of making this mistake when I first started out. The question that I would like to ask you is this: “What business are you in?”

Well if you said that you are in the auto repair business, the cosmetology business, the barber shop business, the grocery store business, or a pizza parlor… or any other kind of response like those just mentioned, then you’re answering this question WRONG. What do I mean when I say “wrong”? Well it’s simple.

No matter what business you think you’re in, the fact of the matter is that you’re in the “marketing” business. Yes, this is true. It doesn’t matter what kind of products you sell. If you can’t consistently bring in a flood of fresh new prospects on a daily basis, then your business may very well suffer.

All of your efforts should be boiled down to getting more new customers, and re-serving the customers who have already done business with you. With the focus of these 2 target audiences, you should have no problem with making more money in your business that you rightfully deserve.

With that being said, there are some things that you could be doing to improve your sales and profits on a daily basis. One of these strategies is direct mail. I’m a big fan of direct mail because this is how I initially launched my business. Direct mail is an easy concept to grasp hold of, so I’ll break it down for you easily.

The first thing you need is a list. Without a mailing list, who are you going to sell to? And I don’t mean randomly picking names out of a phone book or using a list broker. The 2 kinds of lists that you should be mailing to each and every month are your own customer list, or a list from the SRDS.

Do you know what the SRDS stands for? The SRDS stands for the “standard rate and data service”, and it contains lists of customers who have bought something from the phone, the mail, and even the internet. This is where I would start my direct mail campaigns from.

With you more than likely being a novice when it comes to marketing, you will want to do some more research about direct mail, and how it can increase your sales and profits with ease. It’s easy to fail with direct mail, so do your homework on how to make it work for you and your business.

I think you can use these direct mail tips to build a wildly successful business in your spare time. Like I said, direct mail can be easy if you know what you’re doing. Plus, you can even mail out postcards through the mail to generate leads for you and your products. This is a very potent strategy, so start using it today to your advantage.

Good luck with using these tips to earn more money in your business today.
