Subject: Advice on advertising 800 numbers
From: "Lewis Jackson" <>

I have a good service to offer customers (FREE advertising on The National
Direct Internet Yellow Pages) , but can't seem to get any interest. I've
tried posting to newsgroups, direct snail mailings, and even magnetic car
Despite the huge success others have had with this product, I can't seem
to get anywhere. But I know there must be an affective way to market a
product every should be interested in. And I would appreciate any helpful
suggestions to my website or to my 1-800-752-0810
ext 2 message. Your help is much appreciated.

==================Guest Article  ===================

From: Russ Swan <>

You are probably aware that some people seem to be able
to do quite well in network marketing, while others
struggle.  Why is this?  The answer is that it is all in
the correspondence.  I cannot over-emphasise the
importance of the way in which you go about corresponding
with your prospects.

The most important thing you have with your prospects is
your correspondence.  Just the words on the computer
screen.  They are all you have to convince people why
they should join your business or program.  Don't rely
on your webpage to do all the selling for you.  You
can't establish a rapport with anyone on a webpage.
It is simply a marketing tool.  Concentrate on using
your Email.

You are going to get people responding to your ads who
are waiting to hear from you about a way to make some
money on the internet.  They WANT to make money, and you
are offering them a way to make money.  You will be
sending them your Sales letter.  You will get
responses.  Sometimes a lot of responses, sometimes not
very much at all.  That depends on how good your ADS
are, but that's another story :)

Let me say right now that anytime you have a prospect
that has responded to one of your Sales letters with
even one question about your business, or the company,
or whatever, you must consider that person a HOT prospect
.... I'm not kidding!

Anyone that asks you even the most remote question,
deserves to have their own folder in your mail program.
Why...?  Because you will be in correspondence with that
person until they sign up.  You must be nice and sweet
and informative, but you must also be relentless.  Once
a prospect has asked even one question, consider him/her
a future member. Period.  And keep corresponding to that
person until they either sign up or indicate they are
not interested.

And don't worry about being accused of 'hounding'
people.   If they START the process then ignore you,
Then THAT is bad manners.  Keep asking until you get
an answer one way or another... yes or no (a maybe means
YES, keep talking! :)

People will ask you many different types of questions.
They will seem friendly, suspicious or hostile.
BREAKING 'THE DEAL'. Get it?  This is where you will
either lose the prospect, or sign the prospect up, or at
least get them on the road towards signing up.  It is in
this correspondence that you need to be impressive,
convincing, honest, motivating, and above all ......

Think about this.  Say you send off a letter asking
about 1/2 dozen questions or so about a particular
program.  Back comes the reply.  The answers are
completely insufficient and leaves you still wondering.
Would you bother to write back again or would you go
onto something else?  What if the letter was also short,
curt, loaded with grammatical errors and spelling
errors, and showed little personal rapport being built.
What if they simply referred you to a web-page?
Would you still write back?  Of course not!
