I love direct mail.  You know those people who complain about all the junk mail they get (I’m talking about real mail, snail mail, mail man delivery mail here)?  I’m not one of them. I’m constantly evaluating the quality of the advertisements sent to me in the mail.  I’ve been doing this a long time…

vintage direct response ads

Marketing is not an event, it’s a process.  The call to action and ability to get someone to raise their hand and tell you they are interested is a critical component of this process.   Far too much advertising is vague and full of anecdotal copy, seemingly eye catching photos OR trying to sell something…
