    I was talking to a gent I know who is way is way to cheap to pay for SEO. I have never pitched him, as no one in their right mind would want him as a customer.

    We got to talking about SEO and he asked me:

    "Why do SEO people keep sending me dice and pennies?"

    I almost fell over laughing. Shit is gettin' saturated.
    I told him I had no idea...

    I knew about the dice, where are the pennies coming from?

    Well let's hope it's not too saturated, I'm sending out my next batch of letters soon.

    I've only sent out one batch of 9 letters, and received 1 call back from the biggest business I went after. Unfortunately, the guy was a dick.

    I am stuffing 50 cent calculators and at the end of the letter asking if it all ads up.

    Also about the penny. I can't post links yet, but there is a classic sales letter I came across last week that used a penny taped to the letter.

    Google

    "THE LOWLY PENNY WILL OFTEN DO THE TRICK"

    in quotes if you want to read it.
