The phrase probably up there really gets to me. It says you dont know exactly.

what good does it do for anyone to bet or volunteer complete guesses?

How many pieces you mail and what is your call volume?

If you want to keep hoping and betting, head to the casino.
Your advice is way off and Id suggest you just listen when you dont have historically accurate data to share.

I still do not understand why guys on the forum always use a % response rate This doesn't tell you anything other than someone calling your cellphone. Furthermore, you could get only 1 call, but it generates 10k in net profit.

Protip for guys sending out massive amounts of EDDM. A good way to track your sales is to use a different phone number that the customer has access to on the EDDM piece. You can also use a promo code that is unique to your EDDM.

You can generate a Googe number for free that is forwarded to your cell phone

You can also get an 800 number pretty cheap, that saves the callers number and records the call
