    I decided to see how many offers or calls I would get if I email 100 dentists from Manta & Yellowpages

    In my email, I show them already made mobile landing pages, mobile dental sites and dental websites.

    I have included both the resources, email copy and what I use(everything but the dentists email addresses).

    Hopefully I can send out 500 emails today (and improve the email copy as I go)

    Brilliant why not attack the dentists!? I thiink it's a great idea for the following reasons:

    Dentists are loaded
    Nobody talks about attacking dentists
    Nobody talks about dentist marketing
    Those who attack dentists are praised for the karma they inflict (joke)

    Why not specialise with Orthodontists? They earn even more! :D

    I wish you luck but don't expect much from it. Cold emailing is definitely a number game and 100 isn't much.

    I'd add a couple of 0's to the number of emails you send. BTW every one is using Manta, Yellow Pages and so on to hit businesses with emails. My business gets 2 or 3 emails a day from people offering mobile sites and no 1 positions on Google and my business is just a small niche here in the UK. God knows what it must be like for big businesses in the US. They must get stacks...

    And don't get me started on the friggin cold callers too....

    Following up all emails with the 7878 method of mailing them + a twist.

    They will call me.

    P.S - You are right, too many emails get sent these days offering the same service.

    My friend who is teaching me offline marketing and Mobile,
    told me about how he closed an $800 client in one day sending
    75% less emails then you did here.

    He's a member here on BHW (hateandbreak) and does
    offline marketing and a also service he calls Apptimization
    or "APP SEO". He sent out 25 emails one morning and
    got 2 replies back within 3 hours dying to learn more,
    one being $800 for one application (client has 14 apps).

    The response rate is quick and high and just a suggestion,
    try and find new markets in which money is in the experience and
    knowledge you can give potential clients!

    I hope you find success with Mobile Marketing and
    Reputation Management as my friend is going to teach
    me about it as well! :D

    I got tired of sending emails and letters(although i have 100 already put together to send).

    Today I did something even more drastic LOL. I'll be in to see them to do a national campaign
