So, I have been seeing a lot of people complain about the lounge. So I have taken it upon myself to start this thread. I am not sharing a method that has not been shared yet or anything. I am just throwing in a tip or so to a method that is STILL a good method to use. You guys can feel free to jump in with your own method and throw in a twist or something. Let's get some discussions going and make some money! We all know about 7878's Direct Mail Method. So what I did is did the research with my surrounding cities, collected all my facts/numbers, and sent out 50 letters as a start. Just to see how the market is. Now, do this on a Sunday night/Monday morning, so that at least by Thursday the letters reach whatever business you mailed them to. Keep a record of every business you mailed. Then try and find the owners name/manager. You know, someone who can give you a check/$$$. You can try searching Manta or even calling the business and pretending you know them just to get their name. Be creative. Once you're ready with that information, start calling every business you sent a letter to and use the letter as an opener. Something like " Hello, I was speaking with someone about "mention letter here" and we were supposed to talk to them today about furthering your businesses online presence. Can you transfer me over? ". Something along the lines of that usually got me to the manager or the man who holds the checkbook. Note: If you are not willing to cold call (which this isn't even cold calling since you have the letters as a good way to get you right passed the little secretary) then you don't want to make money as much as you say. With all of that being said, let's get a discussion going on some methods or bounce some ideas off of eachother.
