    A resource to keep your business info centralized (it's a time saver)

    As many of you know, I run a small consulting business. One of the greatest problems, or better put, time wasters for me was to keep all of my information at my finger tips to run my day to day activities. I found a resource that I've been using for the last few months and have found it to be...

    Local Mobile Monopoly

    We use mobile marketing campaigns for local business niches that that generally have consumable products, but only as an add-on product after getting the client. Local Mobile Monopoly is a relatively good course, but in my opinion, needs to be updated because the technology is growing rapidly...

    SMS marketing for 2011, is it worth the investment?

    It is true that small businesses are starting to "get it"... AND there will always be competition. First I encourage you not to get caught up in thinking that ALL businesses have sms marketing in place... it's only the ones you've happened to run across. I am willing to bet that if you had a...

    LOL angelas111... I know what you mean because it sure can seem that way at times. Actually it's good to know how to deal with certain personality types and you can do it without kissing butt while making a great living. The fun part is when you win them over because these turn out to be the...

    What is the best way to do offline marketing?

    Unfortunately, there are many, many ways to get offline clients. There really is no "best way" to accomplish this. It depends what your personal strengths are, what products or services you intend to sell and how you are going to fulfill your contract (either by doing it yourself or...

    The 'List Finder" I use for locating local business owners that you might find helpful...

    That depends on a lot of factors and how you look at the profit margins. For example, I'd gladly lose money upfront, if I can get all the backend. Say for example, you mail out 60,000 and it cost you $60,000 to mail out a well written sales letter. And without getting into the details, let's...

    The 'List Finder" I use for locating local business owners that you might find helpful...

    First off xpress... $12,000 is nothing to sneeze at. I'd take that any day of the week, wouldn't you? Secondly, it's 60,000 different mailing lists we're talking about here, not 60,000 total on one individual list. However, using your numbers and applying it to my business (which is selling...

I use it strictly for marketing a small local business that have customers that frequent their shops. I really don't know if it would work in other countries. You might also try PM'ing...

    The 'List Finder" I use for locating local business owners that you might find helpful...

    I know there's a ton of list brokers and list companies out there, and quite frankly, I probably used most of them over the past 20 years. But the one I like the best right now is "Mailing List Finder." I can search over 60,000 mailing lists based on my criteria to come up with just the right...

    Does anyone at MMD have a paperless office?

    @Salvatore.... Thanks for your insights and well thought out suggestions. You're probably right about going totally paperless. Trimming it way down seems to be a viable option for us, so I guess we, as a technological society, haven't gotten there quite yet. (Of course when I was way...
