    Mailing 51 letters tomorrow.

    Letters.jpg

    Started my ORM brand recently (before I was offering the service on my main site) so I've decided to send out mailers with some of my new branding/business cards. I do have an interesting piece that my partner thought of. It's something that will fatten up the letter but isn't completely random. I'm going to go full ORM. My other business rendered my business partner and I essentially into freelancer's. We prefer recurring payments ( who doesn't).

    I will update with the results!

    Good luck! I recognize the 2 color stamp (get it at Staples?) on the white envelope. We use the same ones on our mailings :cool:

    Success! Closed with the first meeting! I didn't go in as a salesman. I listened and spoke casually. I didn't press at all, it was a different approach and I think I will continue with that approach moving forward. He did negotiate my price down but it's okay. Will result in a $3,000+ revenue

    Coming off as very friendly is one of the best face-to-face sales tactics out there, I still laugh at people who just go for the hard sell, clearly they are lost. But if it works for them who am I to judge.

    Quick update. Really happy with the results so far. One deal closed for $3k total (all up front). Another meeting and 1 phone call with an extremely interested party.
