Why some experts recommend using typewriter style writing in marketing message?
Consider the example of doctor, when you want to become a doctor you need to wear a smock because it is an icon of doctor. Similar to this, if you want to look your message personal, you need to type face in a typewriter. The type is an icon that coveys the idea of “letter”. So, in the direct mail marketing typewriter face is important. For the business consumers and business letters, typewriter face consider as an old fashioned face. You can use any other face of writing for the business letter such as Times new roman etc.
I would like to try a magalog but the price I estimated is quite high. Is the price justified?
The price is justified after getting profitable end results. Practically, end results are mixed. Some clients get high returns and some gets lower compare to each other. The people, who get high returns, consider direct marketing as an affordable and best strategy. Manalog is good technique for those whose marketing products mesh well with books, magazines and newsletters as a reader oriented format. However, before you try this strategy you need to see if the format can work for your business. Otherwise, you can get into a trouble.
