I concur as I was approached by a similar service last fall/winter. If you haven`t tried traditional marketing and PR first, I`d explore those options. As an experienced marketer, I haven`t seen good metrics showing direct correlation between television impressions and sales (increased business). Other marketing methods offer better ROI and are usually more effective.By the way, companies such as these often position it as a great opportunity for you when in reality it`s biz development for them. They are always happy to take your money (licensing fees) to expand their business.Hope that helps!
Thanks for sharing the website. This is similar to Threadless.com except Threadless is for t-shirts and lets the community vote to determine the most popular.Re: your question, as a small business owner myself, I like: http://www.sitepoint.com/marketplace/contestentrant/1407/156 220#entry74443This is the one that immediately jumped out and grabbed my attention. Good luck!
Does anyone have experience marketing through valpak.com? If so, I would be grateful if you could share your experience (what worked, what didn`t, etc.).If you haven`t advertised through valpak mailers, I am also interested in customer feedback. Example: If you receive these mailers every month, do you even bother opening it and scanning the content? The customer segmentation is very attractive and seems like a worthwhile partnership. Seems like would need to do tons of market research (test messaging, design) and conduct pilots before I could expand the campaign to get the best bang for the buck.Thanks!
Vincent: The questionnaire doesn`t ask you how much you`re making. It asks how much you want to make (so we can determine if your expectation is even realistic within the given timeframe). And you`re right, not everyone has to fill out the questionnaire. Everyone has a choice. If they decide to fill it out, then I know they`ve taken the first step and want to start owning their life. By the way, thanks for reminding me about my profile. I forgot to update it. If you had checked my profile earlier today, then you would have already seen the answer to your question about the product.I enjoy these conversations because this is really about the law of attraction in action. If something is meant to be, it will happen. Have a great day! BrionP.S. I quickly scanned your website and products. You have amazing talent!
