It may be like this:
1) Prepare yourself to build a successful business
For details, refer to the book for the teenagers, namely, Life Strategies for
Teens, by Jay McGraw.
2) Choose a product that feeds in a starving market
You are more likely to be successful at Direct Response marketing business
if you have a good product in a starving market.
a) This is how to pin point a starving market
i) Marketing experts
They do the research for you.
If you pay attention to your “Junk Mails”, you may be able
to figure out the hottest service and product offering on the
Hot products of Merchandise industry are:
*) Mini cameras
*) Smallest remote control cars
*) “XXX” toys
*) Ink cartridges

*) Many trendy items such as “war” or “911” T-shirts
Hot services are:

and credit cards application
*) Drug Prescription services
*) Internet franchising business

*) At home services
*) Outsourcing services
*) “Teeny Luxuries” e.g. gourmet food, imported cigar,
beauty spa, ballroom dancing and etc
b) Criteria of a hot product
Use these Key criteria to pick up your product in a starving market.
The product must have these characteristics:
i) High profit margin at least 100% preferred 1000%
ii) Broad mass appeal
iii) High perceived value
c) Target your market and find out why your customers buy it
The simplest way to know a customer‟s thinking is to ask questions
and get a direct answer.
People don’t buy but they choose.
i) To read your ad
ii) Choose to buy or not to buy
iii) Choose to make a decision or not
You must help them make those choices.
In order to accomplish this, you must spend your time to study why
they buy it from you.
Your prospect/customer cares nothing for you, or your company, or
even what you sell.
They just want to know “What‟s in it for me?”
They want to know WHY they should buy so you have to give them
Reasons that appeal to their emotions are the most powerful
weapons to get them react to your offer.
The possible reasons are:
i) People react to a quick and easier way to acquire love,
money, power, leisure and lost weight.

criticism, trouble, and effort.

iv) People buy cures (immediate need) over prevention (long
3) How you sell is just as important as what you sell
Keep in mind what you are selling is not the actual commodity or service.
What you really are selling is the feeling or experience that your customer
gains or thinks he will gain from owning what you sell.
Your image, reputation, guarantee, appeals, proposition, all influence the
decision of your buyer.
Always ask yourself. “What make you unique and how does that benefit
a) Develop a unique selling proposition
For a long term profitability and customer retention, develop your
unique selling proposition.
You should have a clear focus to who you are going to serve in a
Once, you develop a unique selling proposition.
This is a strategic theme, image, and market identity of your
Whenever a customer needs your product or service, your USP
should immediately bring your name to mind.
People need to know what you represent in a market place, what
make you special and why they should do business with you.
i) Forms of strong USP
Your USP should be in a form of one paragraph or less and if
possible, reduce it down to a slogan, theme, or company
Focus on the crispest, cleanest, most specific promise you
could possibly hold out.
The USP is the nucleus upon which you will build your
success, fame, and customer relations.
A strong USP is an incredibly powerful public relation tool.
Your USP must be integrated into every aspect of your
business-display advertising, direct mail, sales people, phone
call, press release, stationary, or brochures.
Some general USP might include:
*) Broad selection
*) Speedy service
*) “Top quality” product
*) Service above and beyond basic
*) Broad selection
*) Convenience i.e. delivery, stock, location and etc
*) A longer and more comprehensive service warranty
or guarantee more than the norm.
Now, do something unusual. Actually ask your customers
what they really want. Listen very intently and look for those
underlying fundamental motivations for what they do.
The market will always tell you the right direction to go.
ii) Questions you may ask to improve USP
Questions may be used for an internal customer‟s study or
doing a survey outside your company:
*) How I can show more interest in my customers than
*) How much more service can I offer than my
*) How can I better educate and inform a prospect and
*) What is the specific added extended benefits,
guarantees, incentives or bonuses?
*) How can I make my customers understand how
important to me?
*) What I can do extra to ensure my quality product to
be special to my customers?
*) What do my friends, business associates and experts
say about their past experience with competitors?
It will pay great dividends to spend a little extra time
identifying those low cost, high perceived value extras
related to service, follow up, and image that make you stand
iii) Examples of outstanding USP
Most Dentists offer two types of Fillings. “Dr. XXX
allows you to choose from XXX types of fillings, and
the procedure can be done in one afternoon or
conveniently scheduled over several evenings or
weekends-whichever is most convenient to your
schedule, your budget, and your dental needs.”
*) Better Service
“Most computer companies sell you a computer then
walk away, leaving you with a high tech
paperweight”. We give you an onsite training
program plus a Saturday session for all of your staff.
We also double the normal warranty period and
provide a loaner if you‟re unit breaks down after the
warranty period, we rent you computer for just
$50.00 per day and do the repair for free.
Oh yes, we also offer a 45 day trial period before
you‟re locked into your purchase.”
*) The competition sells their software and is never
heard from again unless the customer calls them.
What I can do better:
**) Call the customers within a few days to be
sure they understand how to use the product
and ask if they have any questions.
**) Send a warm personal thank you for choose
my company and remind them of our follow
up, guarantee, and other products available.
*) Most software companies have tedious confusing
What I can do better than this:
**) Provide 800 number trouble shooting service
**) Prepare an audio or videotape for instruction
**) Develop a newsletter for updates
**) Do annual and semiannual seminars
**) Provide customer onsite training.
*) Most software companies only react when there is a
What I can do better than this:
**) Offer an annual or semiannual program
review this will help because it shows my
concern, gives the customer added benefits,
and helps me identify additional marketing
and sales opportunities.
*) Most software companies educate the customers
about the software operates but don‟t show customers
how to profitably incorporate that software into their
What I can do better than this:
**) Put together or acquire the right to sell a
pamphlet book, or report on the use of
computers for sales and marketing,
advertising and promotion.
**) Include information in a letter or newsletter
about other programs that are profitably using
It helps because if my customer makes more
money they can afford to buy more from me.
iv) Successful start with an effective USP
Put together scenarios like this and then write down the
A strong USP is an incredibly powerful public relations tool.
The proper USP allows you to maximize back end sales and
vastly improve the marginal net worth or the lifetime value
of exciting customers.
One of the most overlooked aspects of a USP is under
estimating the importance of getting every one in your
business to catch the spirit of your USP.
Does every one fully understand, embrace, and believe in
your USP in your business?
More importantly, are they able to clearly articulate, convey
and enhance that important company image?
v) Benefits in your USP that help your customers:

customers and turn all product features into benefits

7) Get referrals from customers
Word of mouth is one of the oldest methods for a smart marketer using to
build their business offline.
Over 80% of people are naturally to share a good experience with their
friends. This is a good conversational piece.
It is comfortable that they share their experience about your product if you
can provide a good valued product or service. A FREE referral will be given
to your product or company.
Word of mouth advertising is a two “edged” advertising. It can promote
your product or service if it has a good value to your customers.
Otherwise, your company and/or your product can be destroyed slowly
when you customers spread the bad reputation of your products or your
a) This is a majority
The vast majority of people in business are not in enduring business
that is why they have continued promoting their products or services.
Usually, they don‟t have a system or a process to bring customers in
sustaining and leading them through a system to get a back end sale.
The back end sale of your business is two folds – it‟s transaction
directly from your clients and it‟s referrals from customers and their
With only promotion, your future is in jeopardy. You‟ve got to
bring new blood in all the time for your business. Once, you stop to
do your promotion. Your business will slow down considerably.
Think about it! Do you have a job or do you have a business?
This will not change until you decide to multiply your result and
sustain it with a system and benefit from its residual value.
b) Basic principles to get referrals
If you have a good product, promise A Lot; Deliver More than your
promise, then you can Expect Referrals.
This is the process that customers will go through before they give
you a referral.
“Suspect-> prospect-> customer-> client-> advocate”
Creating advocates is about a partnership with your customer. It‟s
about taking your relationship to a higher level than traditional
provider-to customer dealings.
Powerful advocate partnerships are anchored in an attitude of
generosity and unconditional giving.
An advocate finds pleasure in extending the relationship beyond just
a need or requirement.
This is a major reason that they give a referral to your product or
service when you ask.
c) Ways to have your referrals
In this case, help your customers to build their business online and/or
offline when they promote their business.
Helping them to understand the details and go through the obstacles
they face and do follow up services such as:
a) Provide a 24/7 FAQ E-mail lines with auto responders
b) Within 24 hours E-mail answering service
c) Monthly E-letter
This will add a lot of value to your product and you will have a
chance to build a much deeper relationship with your customers.
8) Use Classified Ads
Classified advertising is direct response advertising. It‟s there to do one
thing – get your customers to respond NOW.
a) There are two kinds of direct response ads
i) One step-cash up front
ii) Two step-lead generation
b) Classified ads are unique
The BIGGEST MISTAKE you can make is assuming a tiny
classified ad can effectively pull cash up front orders.
For long term profitability and even near term response, the
classified ad is much more effective when used for two-step lead
c) Examples of the two “step” ads
Two-step ads are the one that will read like this:
i) Send for more information
ii) Free details; write to
iii) Amazing recorded message reveals secrets; call xxx-xxxx
The actual sale is made after the person responds and is given a
proposition through a telemarketing approach, sales letter, brochure,
The people who respond to a classified ad have qualified themselves.
You know they have at least some interest in your product or service.
d) Function of classified ads
Low cost classifieds are a way to zero in on or target the exact
market you want to reach.
Instead of spending a lot of money on a large expensive display ad
that reaches many non-prospects; you focus by using an inexpensive
classified ad under headings and classifications your prospects are
likely to read.
Once, they respond to you; focus your dollars and energy on an
educational and persuasive selling package aimed at people you
already know have an interest in your products.
A major advantage is that you now can afford to work that prospect
with several follow-ups messages if needed. Your cost per lead is
By using this two-step approach, you have accomplished three
i) You have acquired the maximum number of leads at the least
ii) You have spent the necessary time to convert those leads into
the maximum number of actual sales
iii) You have captured the name, address, phone #, and E-mail
address of a qualified lead that you can rework for added
e) Decide which system is better for you?
One step? Two step? Classified ad? Display Ad?
The system will ultimately be dictated by the following factors:
i) Your budget
ii) The product you sell
iii) The message you‟re trying to get across
The key is to test different approaches and let the market tell you
f) Display vs Classified
Display ads, inch for inch, are more expensive than classified ads.
Generally a display ad uses more space to get message across,
further increasing the costs.
One of the advantages of classified Ad is the opportunity for low
You can use low cost classifieds to determine if the response and
resulting sales conversions justify going into expensive display
If you test a one step, cash up-front classified and pulls strongly (not
likely, but possible). Then the next step, you may test a larger benefit
laden display ads.
If you use display space wisely, you‟ll tell a much more complete
story with a compelling offer that will be seen, hopefully, by more
Again, you don‟t start with a full page of display advertising, you
test on a small scale inexpensively to see if a display ad will pull
The more EFFECTIVE one step display ads, are large sized
from 1/8 to full page ad.
It often takes a lot of hard selling copy to stimuli your customers to
buy even $10.00 to $20.00 items.
g) One step cash advertising vs two-step lead generation
The more intense and immediate your customer‟s need for your
product or service, the more likely they are pay up front to get it.
Likewise, the more readily apparent the benefit of owning or using
your product is to the prospect, the more likely they are to respond.
h) Critical factors influence the way you advertising
i) Many magazines like Popular Mechanic, Saturday Reviews,
and Psychology Today will allow you to ask for money up
front in your classified ad.
Many newspapers will not allow you to ask for money in
your classified ad.
You will be required to use two-step approach to do your
ii) If your prospects don‟t have a trust of your products and
company, the two step approach is almost essential to your
Think about it. Even a company as well known as Sears
doesn‟t have someone send money in directly off a
Rather, they have customers come to the store; talk to a
salesman or pick up a catalog; in other words, stair stepping,
educating, informing, and moving a customer toward a sale.
iii) Important Consideration
The key is code, test, track, and compare results of all ads.
Work from the least expensive to the more expensive
approaches, learning as you go along. This will help you
conserve those precious advertising dollars.
Be patient, be professional, and realize that it will take a
well-planned strategy to maximize sales. Whenever possible
use endorsements and testimonials to build creditability, then
educate your prospects about the value of what you sell.
i) Pre-market Gang Test
Here‟s a suggestion to avoid wasting time and money on looser
You could gang test ideas using newspaper, or better yet, phone
Write a short paragraph description with the number one benefit on
each idea you have.
If you have only one or two ideas, add some ideas that are already
being marketed, but aren‟t well known. Group the ideas in the group
of three each. It would be good to have least six to nine ideas.
Then you call people randomly in the evening 6.00-8.00 pm
weekdays, 10.00-5.00 pm on Saturdays and ask their opinion.
Tell them you represent a marketing research firm that you want to
get their opinion on a new concept and if they help they could win a
free product or service.
Make sure to ask right away if it‟s convenient for them to talk to
you. If not, thank you and hang up.
The key is to work with people who are willing to cooperate.
Go on to explain that you‟ll be reading three description of a product
or service and you would like to pick a favorite.
Don’t use more than three on any one call.
Tell them if the company decides to market the one they pick, you„ll
send it to them FREE. That should give you a cooperative interested
Read the description; have them pick and finish by taking down their
name and address. Don‟t be cheap, send the product if you
eventually market it. You„ll have a loyal market research person who
will gladly work with you again.
To draw any conclusions, that might take 60-100 calls to get.
However, the feedback you‟ll get will identify some obvious
winners. Those are the ones you want to spend your time and money
F) An example of how to promote product(s) with classified advertising online

3) Success in business is 80% advertising and 20% product
80% of job is done by the headline in the advertising business.
A good headline is a good classified ad. Classified ads are nothing more
than a good headline.
Your classified ad likes a good headline; should stress the number one, most
important benefit to your customers.
You should also try to solve a problem, appeal to curiosity, be newsworthy,
assuming the risk for responding, and be as credible and believable as
It is not an easy thing to do in 25 words or less.
Use your number One benefit, best headline, offer, and target media to start.
For your product and service, you want to find out how valid your idea is.
You can always raise the price, cut your offer and try other less promising
If your idea doesn‟t work giving it your best shot, you know you will need
major corrections or a whole new idea.

minutes. It almost never happens.
It will take a methodical professional approach to get your best effort on

a) An example of writing an Ad for the Online Trading E-book
Business use the following strategies
Classified ads are the most concentrated form of communication in
print there is. In 20 words or less, you have to make something
happen. You have to:
*) Describe what you sell

be irresistible and risk free respond to your ads.
You must use power action words.
Research the psychology of selling. It is backed by years of

6) Media Research
Media research is vital step in the mail order/ direct response advertising
Actually, media selection is not that difficult if you follow a few simple
This is how,
a) Pick the media
Questions you have asked
i) Why your prospects buy them from you? What are the
attitude, belief, life style, and need of your targeted
ii) Where and how your prospects make the buying decision.
Where are customers located, what do they read, listen to,
and watch? When is the best time to reach them?
b) Where you may place them
If you are selling a “business opportunity”, it is not wise to put your
ad in a magazine like “Sweet Sixteen”.
You may run the ad under the “business opportunity” but “help
wanted” would attract even more motivated individuals. They need
Then, that is why it is important for you to code, test and track the
result of your ads to find out your winner.
c) Ways to find a “right” advertising media
It is not an easy job when you try it in the first time but once, you
know the way to find them. It is just a routine to find the right one.
An easy way is:
i) You may pay US$500.00 to use the S.R.D.S. services online
ii) You may spend a few days in a library. Ask for the Standard
Rate and Data Service guides at the Reference Desk.
They list names of publications according to areas of interest,
*) Business publication advertising source
*) Community publication advertising source
*) Consumer magazine advertising source
*) Direct marketing list source
*) Newspaper advertising source
*) Out of home advertising source
*) Print media production source
*) Technology media source
*) Television and cable source
*) TV and cable source
By looking through the S.R.D.S. listings, you may get new
ideas or come across publications you may not have
d) Test your research
Once, you have selected a magazine. Take a look at several back
issues. Go back six months to one year.
If an ad is being repeated in the same magazine over a period of
time, it is because it is making money. That means it‟s probably a
good publication for you; especially if the ad is for a similar product
Generally, if there are a large number of classifieds, it means that
publication is good for classified ad response.
Some books insist wide circulation publications offer the best
advertising opportunity. That‟s only party true.
That statement takes a great deal of qualification. In some case, wide
circulation may be best, for others it could be a disaster.
The New York Times may be full of classified ad and may have the
widest circulation of any American paper, but just for that reason,
you two step lead generation ad could get completely lost in the
crowd of completing ads.
It may be a good idea to test the “pull” of your ad on the smaller
community newspapers. If you get a reasonable response, you can
commit to the much more expensive metro and national newspapers
Often magazines with limited circulation and targeted audiences
have very effective classified section. A good test is looking for
those repeating ads.
7) Testing your Ads
The process of testing your ads is really a systematic way of growing your
Good advertising and marketing is a way of leveraging your promotional
dollars to maximum value.
Testing takes you out of the “Dark Ages” and leads you to make
enlightened, informed decisions.
In short, let the market tell you what to do, what work and what doesn‟t.
Most important, test it on small scale before you risk money on a large
a) Factors with respect to the testing activity
i) You always test only one aspect of the ad at a time. It may be
one word, the offer, the name of the product, or the price.
ii) You may have to wait several weeks to get your result.
That‟s one great advantage in using smaller community
papers to test. Your turn around time is usually two weeks or
iii) Most people don‟t read classified just for fun. They are
looking for something very specific. In this regard, it is very
important to put your ad under the right classification or
8) Tracking your Ads
Code or key your ads. This is a common sense, but you need some way to
distinguish which ad, what publication, and the date an ad run.
If every ad is keyed, you know just which ad is pulling and which isn‟t. A
key number will save you literally thousands of dollars in wasted
By establishing a “control ad” you can continually test new ideas to
response. Each improvement becomes your new “control” progressively
building your business.
That„s how small companies become big companies. They cater to what the
market wants by listening, testing, and tracking results.
Keying can also tell you what time of year some publications are more
effective than others. It can alert you to seasonal changes in buying habits.
With a seasonal pattern of responses, you may run your ad in one
publication in the winter and in another publication, in the summer time to
maximize returns. Testing gives you the knowledge to make such a change.
9) Responses and follow-ups
Quick and professional follow up is essential for success. A prospect has
called in or written for more information, is receptive and ready to make a
favorable buying decision.
This is your opportunity to use the most favorable message you can to
educate, inform, and compel the respondent to action.
You must write your message. All the elements of good direct response
copy or telemarketing should be employed.
Don‟t be cheap. Spend the money necessary to prepare a follow-up package.
It may take several follow-ups to stair step a sale.
Think of it this way. Your inexpensive classified ad gave you an opportunity
to pinpoint that one person out of thousands who has genuine interest in
what you have to offer.
10) A tremendous opportunity for you
Treat your prospects as someone special. Make doing business with you
easy, compelling, exciting-maybe even fun.
Assume this risk for trying your product or service. Emphasize customer
benefits. Prove your claims with supporting facts and figures, endorsement,
Go the extra miles to gain trust, believability, and respect. Recognize the
potential for building a profitable long-term relationship that benefits both
you and your customers.
Add a bonus as a reward for immediate action and include a time limit to
motivate response and eliminate procrastination.
Above all else, don‟t forget to ask for order. Tell your prospects specifically
what to do and lead them to action.
Remind them of what they have gain and what they have missed by not
The message here is clear. Treat all responses equally, quickly, courteously,
If you are serious about your business, get serious about your follow-up to
11) Forecasting Returns
As a general rule if a magazine is sent to subscribers, you can figure that all
your potential prospects will see the magazine at about the same time or
during the same week.
If majority of sales take place from newsstands, then you can figure that
paid subscribers will receive their copies at one time, and newsstand buyers
over a much longer period of time.
“Lead time” is generally longer than for newsstand magazines than
