>From a public relations perspective, however, there are a few things to remember to ensure your video does what you want it to.

The Biggest Promotion Mistake

Written by Gordon King

Continued from page 1

To someone new inrepparttar business opportunity market this list could be a make or break for their business but it showed me what a lot of businesses online or off-line are doing wrong.

If you try to sell any product you run a better chance of selling it to a buyer than another seller but a lot of direct marketers are promoting their product to other sellers.

If you post a message to a Newsgroup or FFA site they are full of other sellers and you usually get counter messages trying to sell you something.

The same goes with mail order mailing lists they usually contain more sellers than buyers.

It doesn't matter how good your product is or how good your headline or promotion materials are, if your message is going to someone who is already involved with a business opportunity you can be sure they don't want another one.

In order to reachrepparttar 101188 real market for your product you must advertise in any magazine or ezine that your potential buyers would read.

Create an advert that will invite potential customers to send for further information on your product or service.

When customers reply to your advert save their names and addresses to a database or address book and use these names to promote your products.

These names have maderepparttar 101189 effort to contact you and have shown an interest in your product so it is only a matter of time before they purchase one or more of your products.
