"784" posts when I looked this morning.
One example I saw;
I found a local print shop with a good price recently, it should cost me around $2950 total in shipping and printing the cards. The usps every direct program will be around $1450 and to print the cards will be around $1450. I plan on charging 500 dollars per ad. So i will make around $5,000 when i start out.
I am working on my mock up, and i plan on talking to business owners once i get my mock up finish. I am little anxious about this, i hope it turns out well.
Ya coulda knocked me over with a feather!
WHO would've EVER imagined that....instead of the "regular"..."Make a Bundle from Home with your PC"...a guy comes along and posts his success in selling a "FACE-TO-FACE" program with HIGH....PRODUCTION COSTS!
Maybe it's the "Hunger" people have, here........ to....FINALLY....find something that WORKS! Presented by someone who has DONE IT!
Let me digress; Years ago....I'm talking "1980" vintage....Jimmy Carter was our "Pres". He and his fellow LIBERAL DEMOCRATS in Congress managed to TAKE OUR COUNTRY DOWN TO IT'S KNEES!
Evidence: If you wanted to buy a Car or Truck towards the end (Thank God) of his "Regime" (1979)....you had to "agree to PAY".....TWENTY TWO PERCENT INTEREST!
I know.....because of what "Carter's Regime" (He and his Liberal Democrats) had done to the Economy....I was FORCED to try and find SOME WAY....to earn money...WITHOUT "going to work" for someone. I ABSOLUTELY REFUSED to "Look for a J.O.B.!
So....one day I opened my mail box and.....saw a "Val Pak" flyer in my Mail Box!
I opened the envelope and saw 20 LOCAL businesses that had PAID to have a Coupon in that envelope.
So....I thought to myself; "Self! Why don't YOU put together a "SIMILAR" Coupon program?"
Hey! Val Pak was located in Denver. I'm in a small mountain town of Glenwood Springs, CO. (pop 7.000) I wondered; "If THEY can get 20 LOCAL businesses to PAY $495 to have their "Coupon Offer in 10,000 pieces of mail".....I should be able to get the SAME amount from local businesses who were NOT in the ValPak mailer.
After 1 phone call I found that ValPak had offered EXCLUSIVES! Which meant.....COMPETING businesses in the SAME business Category....maybe....would like to have a COUPON in a similar program!
Whala! I discovered that ValPak had "softened my local market"! By that I mean....their phone solicitors in Denver....had found the "Low-Hanging Fruit"....and I....if I made FACE-TO-FACE sales calls COULD.... possibly... find businesses willing to pay...little ol' ME....$495.
I thought; "Hey! If Valpak is offering ONE business per category....that means that ALL the other businesses in EACH Category....MIGHT be interested in doing a "Coupon Mailing"1
So....I made up some Samples (based on the ValPak coupons) and....went out and made....FACE-TO-FACE sales calls.....showing Samples and asking the Biz owners to Participate in MY program. (10,000 envelopes mailed for $495)
Well....because I'm an "Out-Going" kinda guy....I was able (in the worst economy since the Great Depression)....to get 30 businesses to pay, little ol' me....$495 ea ($495 x 30 = $14,850)
FOURTEEN THOUSAND EIGHT HUNDRED FIFTY BUCKOREENOS....in the worst economy since the Great Depresion! YOu kidding ME? Don't talk to me about "Entroopeneerism doesn't work!"
I went out in a DOWN-Cast, GLOOMY economy where MANY small businesses were about ready to call it QUITS....and....not only "LIFTED THEIR SPIRITS....I also LIFTED the Spirits of MY WIFEE....who was "Scared to death about the Future" (as MOST of the folks in my area were)
Hey! FOURTEEN THOUSAND BUX in YOUR bank account will make ANY wife or girlfriend or...."significant other" (this is the 21st century, sadly).... EXTREMELY ECSTATIC!
So....again....I am REALLY SHOCKED....at the INTEREST....HERE....in what I thought was a "Non-Person-To-Face" atmosphere.
Thanks for this Forum....and....thanks to the "Entroopeneers" who reside here and willingly offer their successes.
