Simple Postcards Generate Low-Cost Prospect Leads
Copyright 2004 Bob Leduc
The postcard is a highly effective business tool you can use
to generate prospect leads for a very low cost. Even the
smallest business on a tight advertising budget can afford
to implement a successful postcard mailing campaign.
Postcards are simple to use and easy to prepare. You can
have postcards in the mail within a few days of making your
decision to send them. And... you will start getting replies
from postcards within two or three days of mailing them.
Generate Prospect Leads Instead of Trying to Close Sales
Don't try to close sales directly from a postcard. They
don't have enough space to provide all the information a
prospect needs to make a buying decision. Instead, use your
postcards is to generate sales inquiries, store visits, or
web site traffic from qualified, interested prospects.
Everybody Reads These Postcards
The most effective message on a postcard is very brief. It
presents just one major benefit the reader can gain and
tells the reader exactly what to do to get more information.
Nearly all of the people who get your postcard will read it
...if you keep your message brief. Recipients don't have to
open an envelope and unfold a letter or brochure to see your
message. A postcard is delivered with the message already in
front of their eyes - ready to read. That's one of the major
reasons why postcards are so effective.
The postcard format guarantees you will never lose prospects
who would be interested in your offer ...but won't take the
time to open an envelope to read it. These same prospects
will read your offer when you deliver it "already opened" on
Special Low Postage Rate in The US
In the US there's even a special postage rate for postcards.
You can send your postcards by First Class Mail for just 23
cents - if you make them no smaller than 3 1/2 inches high
by 5 inches wide and no larger than 4 1/4 inches high by 6
Highly Cost-Effective Outside of The US
Most countries outside of the US do not offer a low-cost
postage rate for postcards. However, many non-US business
owners tell me they find it very cost-effective to use
postcards for business purposes - even without a low-cost
That's probably because postcards are seldom used for
business purposes outside of the US. Therefore, they attract
more attention than in the US where postcards are frequently
used for business purposes.
Don't overlook the power of a simple postcard the next time
you want a highly-effective but low-cost way to generate
sales leads, store visits or web site traffic.
