On to today’s Episode…

If I asked you: what do you think is the best performing marketing media today, what would you guess?

Google, Facebook, YouTube?

You may be right. All three are great, for some businesses. And surely these are the BIG 3, the most popular today. But there is a stark difference between most popular and best-performing.

What if I told you the most reliable, predictable and profitable marketing media today is… drum roll please…

Direct Mail.

Surprised? Most are shocked. They’re even more shocked when they learn that the top Internet companies in the world send massive amounts for Direct Mail each month to get new customers…

How could this be? Didn’t Direct Mail die when the Internet was born? Isn’t everything just online today?

Not so fast my friend… The mediocre majority will have you believing this but the wealthy minority know better…

In fact, Google, Facebook, and Ebay are a few that come to mind for me. They’re all huge Direct Mail players. And almost all of the top eCommerce giants today send full page catalogs in the mail these days. Personally, I receive a bunch each week in my mailbox. And I BUY from many of them. More on that in a moment.

As I learned early on… You follow the money and you follow facts, not opinions and fads. And in this Episode of SuccessLab Radio, we will do just that!

I’ve invited the nation’s leading authority on Direct Mail, Craig Simpson, into The Lab today to take us behind the scenes and into the private, lucrative world of Direct Mail Marketing…

Craig has managed thousands of direct mail campaigns and grossed hundreds of millions in revenue for his clients over the past 15 years. He is a respected speaker on the topic of direct mail and he is the co-author with Dan Kennedy in The Direct Mail Solution. Under Craig’s direction over the past year, my partners and I have mailed hundreds of thousands of Direct Mail pieces that grossed an extra $1 Million in revenue. This accounts for about one quarter of our company revenue at this time and our goal is for our Direct Mail Marketing to ultimately drive the majority of our company’s revenue over the next few years. I’ll tell you why, in a moment.

Today, in this Episode of SuccessLab Radio, we want to show you how you too can install this reliable, predictable and profitable Marketing Machine into your business so that you can show up like no one else and attract a whole NEW type of customer. Craig, welcome to the Lab.
