    I did a partial trade with a client resulting in $1,000 credit with their printing company. All of my company's leads are generated via SEO and online ads and I know that direct mail is a whole different ball game and have yet to play on that field.

    So my question to you is... How would you multiply $1,000 print credit? Just looking for some ideas, pointers, do's don'ts, etc.

    Offer your current clients that printing service. If you can't design just outsource that work. Every business needs printing done..

    You can get some business cards printed if you want to be safe. They will always be handy.

    Otherwise, print some postcards or brochures and try out direct mail marketing. Xmas / New Year is coming up, so this could be a good opportunity as well.

    You can broker postcards for those who are using the 7878 method. Just sell the printing to people on here at a slightly marked up price.

    Try doing some brochures or flyers and handing them out at businesses or stapling them to sign posts. Along with that you could make business cards or do something with mailing and print out what a website redesign could look like.

    Thanks for taking the time to post guys, however I was looking for some tips from people that have experience with direct mail.
    I would print business cards but I have almost 1,000 of them still sitting around collecting dust. Same thing with a few of my employees so I don't really want to waste more money on them. I've also got plenty of brochures too.

    And stapling flyers to sign posts and putting them on car windshields would probably be one of the last things that I ever did. It would seriously lower the reputation that I have build over 2 years for my business, plus could you imagine the conversion rate on something like that?

    I am just looking for some good advice on direct mail marketing. I do like the brokering idea though I'd much rather have green paper sitting around then high gloss.

    use those 1000 dollars to promote some affiliate offers offline . Try to single out a product , its buyers demographics and then laser target it to them . could be risky
