Direct Mail Comment

I mailed out 2,700 post cards last month. Cost? About $1,200. I offered the first month free upon signing a years contract.
I was very disapointed. I got 4 phone calls. The general rule for direct marketing such as mail outs. The return should net at least 2%. NOT 1/2%
Good new is that I closed all 4.
I will never do a mass mailing again.
But, I will try a saturation of a certain geographic market area to economize.

I went to an area and passed out flyers on doors. I made two estamates while I was out doing thing and when I got home I got a call from a lady in that area wanting an estamate and come Monday I will be back in that area doing some work. I spent maybe 1 1/2 hour passing about 200 flyers out. I am happy with the results of it maybe one or two more call I would be real happy.
