    Did I read in here that the cost per each new customer acquired is $60??? :confused:

    If so, tell me who I write my check to.

    I'd spend $60 per account all day every day. Just add in an extra $60 to every new account's annual total.

    Seems like a no-brainer unless I'm missing something here.

    Does this company guarantee any minimum results???

    Posts: 525 for the total mailing your looking at upwards of $12k?

    Have you looked into focal point or yes marketing?

    That seems a little too good to be true to me. I would double check your mail all over again and perhaps look into others as well. Make sure to have all of your options open and your loose ends tied before you make a leep like that.

    Well personally I think your getting ripped off at $0.40 per 4x6 postcard. You should check with some other company’s I know Real Green and Yes Marketing both have much larger multi page mailers for the same or less money including postage. I could do the same postcard deal your getting for around $8000 tops including postage. Oh and if your not working the phones for apps you should get on that quick! A quick and easy way to pick up app customers. If you do it in house (and its cheaper ) look at leasing a predictive dialer so your agents get the most talk time. You can at least double and likely triple your contacts per hour. You can short term lease systems month by month for around 250 per agent plus its all done over the net so no adding phone lines or anything. Plus long distance is only around 3 cents per minute. Check it out look for hosted call center applications.
