1)HIGHLY TARGETED The campaign was highly targeted - at just 54 companies, fromrepparttar USA and other parts of Europe, who we knew were not represented in Scandinavia.

2)SPECIFIC EVENT It was aimed at a particular event,repparttar 109670 International Online Show, where we knew a number of relevant prospects would be attending.

3)SOMETHING VALUABLE TO OFFER It was aimed at companies who had an interest in selling online information services torepparttar 109671 business and academic sectors, where my client had a wide range of existing contacts.

4)GOOD TIMING The timing was good - it was sent out inrepparttar 109672 week beforerepparttar 109673 Show, whenrepparttar 109674 exhibitors were absolutely focused on what they wanted to get out ofrepparttar 109675 Show.

5)MANAGEABLE FOLLOW UP The number of companies approached was a manageable number, and resulted in a number of successful responses, which could all be followed up inrepparttar 109676 3 day duration ofrepparttar 109677 Show.

6)REASON TO SAY "YES" The two step approach - a mailing, followed up with a meeting at a venue they were definitely going to attend, made it easier for them to say "yes" to a meeting.

Now that you've got a service you can pick up your email. Be sure to checkrepparttar box which says "leave email on server" or "do not delete messages" or something like that, unless you are absolutely sure you want to delete them. What this does is leaverepparttar 109669 messages on your POP server until you read them with your normal email client.

Okay, now what? Well, when you travel you can find a place to read your email. Let's say you are at a convention. You could find a kiosk which allows for internet access and viola, you can read your email. Sometimesrepparttar 109670 salespeople will let you use one of their screens if they think you might be or might become a customer. Airports, libraries and other places also commonly have computer and internet access for a fee.

Some cautions are in order here. By their very nature these kinds of public systems are not secure. Just be sure you use your common sense and don't do anything you would not want to broadcast torepparttar 109671 entire planet. Also, be surerepparttar 109672 email service that you choose storesrepparttar 109673 password for you - never enter your email account password on a public system. Thus, you should enter your password once - when you set uprepparttar 109674 email account.

It's also a good idea to change your POP email account password more often, most especially after you return from your traveling.

Personally, I prefer to carry a laptop or handheld device (such as a palm pilot or Jornada) with me when I travel. This way I can pick up my email fromrepparttar 109675 hotel room or anywhere I can find an ethernet jack, without worrying aboutrepparttar 109676 inherent security issues of using a public system.
