    I've been reading a lot about people now handwriting direct mail to increase reader retention. I'm just wondering, for those of you that scale your handwritten sales letters, who writes them for you? I'm not sure if $10/hour here is cheaper than outsourcing to India and paying freight to ship them around the world. I think it would depend entirely on volume. It's such a simple job, I mean the writer doesn't need any skill, so even college kids are overkill. You could give the job to young nieces, nephews, cousins or siblings and they'd likely happily rewrite letters for a cheap rate. Actually, scratch nephews... young boys are too messy of writers from what I remember in elementary. So, who writes your handwritten sales letters?

    Surely outsourcing to india would be cheaper. In my expierence it is almost always cheaper, even after shipping. I have outsourced A LOT to India and have yet to find one service that isn't cheaper even after things like shipping. They always do a good job to, hmmm. Our American workforce is just entitled and lazy i guess.
