A lot of people are constantly thinking about starting their own business. A large majority of these people will choose mail order because of its intrinsic advantages.
Newcomers to the mail order industry normally ask the same types of questions. Who can help us? Someone, somewhere has to help a newcomer in mail order to become successful. It's inevitable! A lot of people think only large businesses can succeed in mail order. This is just one of the many misconceptions newcomers have toward the mail order industry. Another misconception is that mail order is a rip-off world - which is entirely untrue! Some of the best products and services are obtained through the mail!
The general public entering mail order for the first time cannot understand how the concept works. They are used to going into a store, looking at an item and purchasing it. Mail order (as we all know) is quite different. In fact - it's so simple to start a mail order business that most people can't believe they can do it. But with the proper education, these people can become thriving, money-making companies - ones that will remember YOU as introducing them to the market.
The Idea -If someone started a National Help Line for questions and answers for newcomers it would not only be a big help - but a fantastic money-maker for its owner. In fact, you might use the service to direct business to other mail order dealers by having them submit monthly dues in order to have business referred to them.
Suppose a newcomer wanted to get involved in publishing their own booklets. Several competent mail order publishers would buy the right to have this type of business referred to them. The newcomer calls the “HelpLine". If handled honestly and legitimately - this could turn into a pot-of-gold for you and help our entire mail order and small business industry as a whole!
The only thing left to do now is advertise the HelpLine phone number service you have. Initially, you will have to invest into advertising; and with something of this magnitude you should advertise in some national publications as well as adsheets and tabloids.
Another benefit to the person who would be establishing the 1-900 hotline would be that he or she could promote their own products and services, as well as obtain names and address of hot prospects; in which they could sell in the form of mailing lists.
