Re: Postcard Mailing Questions

I'd say you'd be mighty lucky to get a response at this point considering you sent it 1st class.

It depends.
What is the motivation to respond...?
Do you have a compelling offer or are you just announcing that you exist?

You're mailing the SAME PEOPLE?

Are you mailing a 1000 cards a month to the same people? OR, are you mailing 1000 cards a month to different people?

This would help, so we can best offer our experiences, OK?

Re: Which one is tougher - Online or Offline marketing?
