Today is a big day. I bought my first mailing list from Listsource and an other source I rather not mention (not because of competition issues… I do not believe in competition and I will help everyone and anyone, competitor or not).
The other source I used was called Listability. I have mixed reviews on this and if anyone wants to know what my thoughts are on this list or from listsource, then ask me in the comments and I will write a post about it.
It may be very risky what I did. My entire marketing campaign will most likely cost me about 2.5K and I will only be in CT for 1 month. So after 1 month I will most likely walk away from all the marketing at the point it is actually about to give results.
Why then did I do this? If I get just one deal out of it, it would have been worth it. I have 20K put aside for this adventure. I can either be scared, (well maybe “smart” is the better word in this case), or I can go all out and not be like 90% of people out there that are to chicken (or is the word I am looking for “smart” again?) to step up and do whatever it takes to be successful!
This is what I think.
Most of the people that do not make it, don’t because they just do not have the money, or determination or the wits to do it. You need money to make money. I have SOME money so I for heck’s sake will use that advantage and milk it!
So I will have about 1500 highly targeted letters going out soon.
Remember, the second I transform that list into mailers and sent the out.. I DID IT!!
I have defined “having running company” as having sent out a running campaign!
Then as per that definition, I started! And fail or not, I stopped wishing and dreaming and I started doing!!
Let me leave you all with one little video.
Then subscribe damn it!
