    Alright, so I decided to take a shot at 7878's ORM method. Not because of the money, but because I've always wanted an offline/online biz and this looked appealing.

    So over the past couple of weeks I've gathered 200 negative rep businesses phone numbers, addresses, director names, etc...

    The circling of the reviews with red pen took most of the time up, and believe me this method is NOT quick.

    Anyway, last Thursday I sent out 26 letters as a test run.

    This morning (Monday) I received a phone call from the communications director of a HUGE technology company.

    I missed his call, he left me a voicemail with his personal mobile number and his direct line. I phoned him back an hour later on his mobile and we agreed to meet this Thursday.

    I am now in the process of preparing everything for Thursday's meeting.

    So out of 26 letters I received 1 callback so far, after 1 day.

    I didn't add a twist to this method, I just followed what 7878 explained to do.

    I also read some other threads of peeps who have executed the method successfully and used tips from those threads.

    Expenses so far:

    Stamps: 50x0.64 = £34.50
    Envelopes: 500 = £5

    I had everything else that was needed.

    I'm aiming to send out the rest by the end of next week.

    So I'll keep this thread updated :cool:

    I always see object relational mapping when I read ORM.

    Anyways, good luck with your journey !

    Had to chuckle after your first sentence, as I'm really trying hard to get away from the offline biz :)

    Since this method has been around for sometime, on a random note, it makes me wonder if these businesses are aware of 7878s method now. haha

    Congrats on your quick response and putting in work, you've already succeeded now you need to claim it. Looking forward to your results.

    Just because plenty of people say they'll do it, doesn't mean they all actually follow through with it! And I think most of us here live in quite different areas, so I doubt they'll ever find out ;) (and, after all - it's not BS, you really are selling them a service ;) )

    Good luck OP! Sounds like you hit it off great already! =)
    I really love that method too, probably going to include it into my business as well, just twist it a bit here and there!
    Keep us updated!

    I agree. Many of us live in different cities and there are just so many different businesses you can reach. It's impossible (well, its possible) for one to mass mail every business in the city just like that.

    Don't think and just dive in! The investment is small (mostly time and stamps). You have nothing to lose.
