    I want to set up a direct mail campaign, I've never done this before.

    Target Market:
    - Local Businesses that need webdesign/SEO/other internet marketing services.

    What I want is:
    - Professional direct mail that will create lots of leads.

    What is the best template for B2B direct mail? Should I just buy blank envelopes, stuff a cover letter in there, stamp it, and let it go?

    Thanks for any help.

    Here's an old but good secret; if you're going to use a sales letter / envelope combination, get yourself a $6.00 rubber stamp that reads "confidential" and stamp it on the outside of your envelope below or next to the postal address. It increases your open rate 2-3X one without.

    I only have $50 right now. Designing and printing postcards cost a lot more than that I think.

    I'm gonna have to go with the envelope and a sales letter, with color illustrations on web design, and SEO.

    the "confidential" stamp is a good idea. think i'll use that
