    Hey, Im planning siterentals/directories and want to advertise them via directmail. But I am thinking of how to write this letter.. Will it look like scam or crapadverts when I will send them a letter in WSO salespagelooking? Is a normal letter better? What would you do?

    I am curious about this too. Good question.

    a WSO definitely sounds more appealing to me (or internet marketers in general).
    But i am not sure how an offline average-joe will see it.

    I'd use the copyrighting style of a sales page (such as WSO) for the text as this is more appealing, but use a cleaner layout for a physical letter so it looks more like a well written personal sale letter rather than an ad.
