And, what would berepparttar 101071 "Perfect Follow-up" torepparttar 101072 "Perfect Online Ad"?

Respond with a short email message that is no more than 5 lines of text long and DO include your web site URL in this email message for people to pay you a visit.

If they just had your web site URL, they could easily visit and you might very well never hear from them again.

But since you now have their email address, you can do a follow-up email message to them in about 3 to 5 days and keep yourself fresh on their minds.

Do not follow-up in just one day because many people will set aside their email to read for another day.

After all, don't you find it annoying when someone starts bombarding you with follow-up emails on a daily basis?

Give your prospects time to be impressed with your first message. "A Perfect Online Ad" will bring you more response and success than you can possibly imagine.
