The Devine Secrets Of The Ya Ya Lease Purchase Hood

Written by Sue and Chuck DeFiore

The biggest secret of conducting a successful lease purchase business is to have a plan. I know donít grown. You need to know what you want to do however, before you can do it.

So secret number 1 is to have a plan of action. Set up daily goals for yourself. (For example, I want to make 50 calls today, or I want to spend 20 minutes onrepparttar telephone, or I want to send out 75 emails, you getrepparttar 117302 idea). Just be sure that your goals are realistic.

Secret number 2 is to Write down everything you want to accomplish on Monday, Tuesday, etc.,repparttar 117303 time you want to do what (for example 8 a.m. to 9 a.m.- work on FSBO sites). Have a To do list, and update it every day.

Secret number 3 is to have a tickler file. A tickler file will help keep you organized, keep your desk clean, and be sure you donít forget to do something. Remember a tickler file tickles your memory. It is a accordion file with 31 days, you make uprepparttar 117304 manila folders withrepparttar 117305 months (or you can buy them withrepparttar 117306 months onrepparttar 117307 files already), and put your to do list forrepparttar 117308 next day inrepparttar 117309 tickler file, meetings for a particular day ofrepparttar 117310 month inrepparttar 117311 tickler file. It is especially great for things you do on a consistent basis. For more information on what a tickler file is and how to use it, checkrepparttar 117312 article on our website at

Secret number 4 is to have a chron file. A chron file will help you find information quickly. It contains all correspondence you have generated for a month by date. It is a great time saver. Keep it in your desk or in a stand up on your desk.

Secret number 5 is to set up a good filing system. I am not going to go into detail on how this is done in this article, as this was already done in a previous article and can be found on our website in our article archives.

Mail Order: Myths, Magic, And Absolute Truths!

By Avril Harper 2003

"The World's Most Exciting Business", so said Joe Karbo, direct response guru and legendary creator of The Lazy Man's Way to Riches.

Then how come so few people get started in mail order and direct mail?

Perhaps it'srepparttar myths - lies - surroundingrepparttar 117301 business, doubtlessly perpetrated by successful direct mail and mail order specialists keen to prevent others cashing in on their secrets.

This is what they will tell you ..... and why you should consider mail order and direct mail, as a new business, or add-on to an existing venture.

Myth #1 You Must Have Money - Lots of It - To Make a Fortune in Mail Order and Direct Mail!

Not True! As many fortunes, maybe more, are created by people starting on low budgets as others possessing unlimited cash reserves. Multi-millionaire, Melvin Powers, one of America's leading direct response specialists, sells books and information products, alongside numerous niche market products and others with universal appeal. His immense empire started several decades ago onrepparttar 117302 strength of one small classified ad!

He's not alone. The great Joe Karbo - The Lazy Man's Way to Riches - hit rock bottom and bounced back onrepparttar 117303 tide of several popular mail order products. The same is true of British couple, Daniel and Kathy Crandall, who tell an amazing rags to riches tale in How to Get Rich Sooner Than You Think, published inrepparttar 117304 UK by Chartsearch.

Myth #2 You'll Never Get Rich On One Product!

A half-way truth! One can't deny,repparttar 117305 more best-sellers you have,repparttar 117306 more money you're likely to make. But one best-selling product can still generate very good profits, even a fortune. A good example is Peter van Berckel of Wade World Trade, whose import/export course has sold consistently well for over half a century. Peter tells me that one small advertisement used to promoterepparttar 117307 course has hardly altered in more than fifty years, except for changes of address and telephone numbers.

Myth #3 There's No Such Thing As Small Markets in Mail Order and No Place forrepparttar 117308 Little Guy. You Have to be A Big Fish in a Big Pool! Preferably An Ocean!

Poppycock! You don't need an ocean, even a big pool to make a fortune in mail order or direct mail! In fact, quite oftenrepparttar 117309 reverse is true, and sometimesrepparttar 117310 smaller your target market,repparttar 117311 easier it is to reach andrepparttar 117312 lower your marketing costs are likely to be. It's called niche marketing - targeting a tiny pool of people with a clearly defined shared interest, like entering competitions, fishing, direct mail or animal husbandry. You won't work hard to find them or spend much inrepparttar 117313 process: they readrepparttar 117314 same publications, joinrepparttar 117315 same clubs, they're passionate about their subject, and always eager to buy!

Myth #4 The Average Response in Direct Mail Is 3%! If You're Lucky! Sometimes It's Much Lower than That!

Oh dear,repparttar 117316 biggest, best-traveled myth of all, andrepparttar 117317 one that deters most people from earning a fortune in direct mail. Let me tell you why that 3% suggestion is absolute rubbish. I've had 3%, yes, probably many times more than I've achieved far higher response rates. But I've had as high as 40% to my own list of past buyers and 16% from just one outside list that grows atrepparttar 117318 rate of 2,000 new names each week! It's all a question of continuously mailing past buyers (they know and trust you), testing new lists, and once you achieve a good response to an outside list, roll out consistently to new names and add even more regular buyers to your house list. As always, test all lists carefully, even your own, to ensurerepparttar 117319 best return for your money!
