Is fear of failure an issue when you commit valuable money in advertising?
Well how about if I showed you a way to remove this fear and you know that you would be able to spend money advertising KNOWING you would get a return?
Is that a valuable lesson?
Course it is!
So, how do you do it?
The answer is testing!
It's simple really.. Instead of sending out 1000 sales letters for example. Send out 500. In these 500 have 5 different headlines so 5 x 100 = 500
Well what we are trying to establish here is what headline or sales offer pulls best. Once we know which one works then we do a mass mailing, but not before then!
You see I have seen so many companies waste hundreds even thousands of pounds on non result direct mail... all because they didn't test!
So save yourself time and money by testing EVERTHING you do.
If it's an advert in the local press, sign up for 5 small inserts over 5 weeks rather than 1 big page as a one off. This will be cheaper but will also allow you to test different offers.
