    I sent out 5500 and got around 50 calls, if not more.

    In my first year I landed about 20 of them.

    thefed. how many calls did you get. Most people get 1-4 percent call backs with post cards. Of course that is just call backs. The natural sales process will eliminate 75 percent of the others.

    My Aunt is VP of marketing for national firm. I believe I heard her celebrating over getting a response of 6 per 1000 cards mailed for a promotion she set up. This was about 10 years ago so I may have remembered wrong.

    I didnt track calls...calls dont make me money. Closed deals do....sorry.... I'd guess we only got about 2x that many calls and closed 1/2. They were handed out in newspaper boxes next to mailboxes....took about 3 days....not a bad return for 3 days work!

    I reccommend overnight prints dot com for super cheap super-looking post cards

    2% But a year like this with a late fall clean up some did not get done and with people watching there wallets you may get more.
