To put this plan into operation it is necessary, of course, to advertise the $1.00 plan. This can be done by placing the suggested ad in the classified sections of publications with inexpensive rates--such as mail order ad sheets or publications, magazines, or neighborhood newspapers. Later, when your budget allows for greater or wider promotion, you can place ads in the business opportunity and money-making sections of magazines with larger circulation.
It is also possible to place your offer as a notice on bulletin boards in heavy-traffic areas such as super markets, public halls, etc.
When order come in, have a copy of this report reproduced. It will cost just a few pennies per copy to have it printed. Then mail this report to the people who responded to your ad and submitted the dollar payment. Your customers, in turn, will receive their moneys worth in information value and the opportunity to put this plan to work for themselves.
Bear in mind, too, that this plan can be adopted for many other types of offers. Instead of formulas you could offer recipes, business information, or thousands of different matters that people want to learn about. Just change the ad copy to fit your particular offer.
The statement 100 letters a day, each containing $1.00 is, of course, rather ambiguous. There is no scientific method to assure an exact figure for mail order sales or profits. It depends on many factors, such as the amount of advertising or promotion you put forth, and the percentage of orders you receive from this effort. $100 per day is surely possible; it could even be a lot more.
As mentioned before, this plan is about as sure fire as anything devised for sale through the mail. It requires very little investment and is simple and convenient to operate. It is probably the easiest method for an individual to start a mail order business and gain experience in this field. And, to emphasize an earlier statement, this is an ideal program to obtain prospect names for other offers.
