If you have a marketing message that sucks the best technology in the world will not help you.

I love the internet but I generate higher results offline that online but by using the same systems that we use online 1) drive people to a sales letter 2) capture the lead with a information hotline 3) this information hotline has a short prerecorded message 4) I then have their phone that I can follow with test messages & phone calls.

There is less competition on offline which is why I think I get better results.

No matter where you build your business you must have a strong marketing message.


Now that's what i'm talking about. :)
Prior to my coming online to try marketing, I had been utilizing such systems.

Finding and driving traffic via postcards, direct mail, classifieds, sizzle cards. All that then lead to a pre-recorded message or possibly a website with further instructions.

It help to get through the non serious and over to the serious takers.

Because of time constraints, what with working, sometimes two gig's, I had to try and find system's I could use to help build a business venture.

I remember a venture I did many years ago where I had two or three days in a row of having my mail box full of envelopes stuffed with checks and money orders. The company I was promoting was slow in filling orders and went belly up.

I used attention getting, emotional driven message's which other marketer's supplied to me.

And one deal we used a small well written, hit the right buttons 20 page booklet.

That's how I was able to get my mail box stuff with checks.

Beatty Carmichael over at Growth Pro has some really great marketing systems with 800# with sizzle calls and the like.

Marketing in this way wasn't cheap, but you could yeild some great results.

You are absolutely right. If your message stinks nothing is going to work.

I too must agree with you. Having a personal relationship with the people you talk to seems to get better results than going online and directing your messages to any one who happens to listen.
Being offline, people can readily see the results in you and your message without a written script to read. You can hand out brochures and your website for them to check out the information for themselves. You will see them again to keep the thought on their minds to do something for themselves.
You do get a much quicker response of either 'yes' or 'no' from their facial expressions.
The internet is faceless and you can only imagine what the reader is going through and what they are looking for. Sometimes you get a response from Facebook. But it would be harder for them to respond further and check out the information. The main goal is to change people's eating habits for the better. And that's whether they buy from me or not. I am here to help them to achieve their goals.
