Myth #5 There's Nothing New In Mail Order. It's All Been Done Before!

Very true! And false! The simple fact that life goes on day by day is sufficient to generate lots of new products and plentiful methods of marketing for big money. New products available in one country but absent from your own can be imported or dropshipped byrepparttar owners, or copycatted by you. But be careful, copying something too closely is wrong, and actionable at law, unlike copycatting which really means ‘emulating' without breaching trademark and copyright laws.

Sadly, even tragic, unexpected events present openings, as didrepparttar 117301 untimely death of Diana, Princess of Wales, and more recently old blue eyes himself, Frank Sinatra. Both spawned a host of mail order and direct mail promotions, not all complimentary to subjects themselves but all highly profitable judging byrepparttar 117302 extensive marketing strategies repeated week after week.

The secret is to keep your eyes open for new opportunities, ‘new' not always meaning recent ..... and this is one timerepparttar 117303 ‘nothing new' brigade might be right, because many exceptionally profitable products are regurgitated from ideas in decades-old publications, making flea markets a great source of product ideas for you!

Considerrepparttar 117304 yo-yo, for example, andrepparttar 117305 hula hoop, both making regular comebacks, alongside many more products waiting to be revived from ads. that can be picked out of magazines and newspapers selling for pennies on eBay and other auctions on and offrepparttar 117306 Internet.

Myth #6 Very Few Things Can Be Sold Through Mail Order and Direct Mail

Rubbish - virtually anything can be sold through mail order and direct mail, even if they can't always be delivered by post. Witness past offers of pieces ofrepparttar 117307 Berlin Wall, cans of London Smog, pieces of land with titles attached, tins containing holes from Polo mints, a disused underground bunker (location eludes me), and a tropical rain forest in Costa Rica!

So there we have it: six myths to treat with caution and tackle with gusto.

And remember to always treat what experts say with caution. It might be their pockets they're looking to fill, not yours!
