You'll find it all in Direct Marketing Hotseat -- Actual Campaigns And Case Studies Of Million-Dollar Direct Marketing. This is a new, completely expanded, bound edition of my now "retired" newsletter, <Direct Marketing Hotseat.
Direct Marketing Hotseat sold like crazy right from the word go. The only problem was it was extremely difficult to coordinate the busy schedules of all my prominent Contributing Editors. What can you expect when you have the most in-demand marketing experts in the world lending their considerable talents to a project?
So after fulfilling all ten issues I was committed to for the first year, I reluctantly "retired" Direct Marketing Hotseat. But I also decided to significantly expand it, adding a ton of breakthrough material that would make it even easier for you to double or triple your profits in short order.
My goal was to make this new, expanded version the ultimate resource on proven, million-dollar direct marketing strategies and techniques.
Just how much did I add to the original materials? Five hot new issues. That's right, I expanded the materials by a full fifty percent!
This comprehensive insider's guide to increasing your sales and profits is unlike any other marketing course you've ever seen. And it took so much work to create, I can guarantee you that nothing like it will ever come along again!
As I've already mentioned, everything in this powerful resource has been proven in the marketplace. There is no textbook theory, no wishful thinking, and no fluff or filler. It's all hard-hitting, proven strategies and techniques that have sold countless millions of dollars worth of goods and services.
Nearly all of the material is set up in case study format showing all the actual concepts, techniques, offers, ads, and sales letters that produced tremendous sales volume. More importantly, the actual mailing lists used, magazines and newspapers the ads were run in, and fully documented results are also given. So you know precisely what results you can expect when you model these campaigns in your business.
This is truly the most detailed guided tour of successful direct marketing you could ever hope to get your hands on. Here's what's included in each chapter, and the powerful benefits it will give you:
Chapter 1: How To Use Dirt-Cheap Postcards To Send Your Sales Through The Roof
In this chapter, I'm joined by Karen Anderson, Stan Golomb, Jeff Paul, Ray Jutkins, Dan Poynter, and Brian Voiles to show you precisely how to use postcards to conquer the high costs and low returns of conventional direct mail.
This powerful chapter is packed with proven examples that show you how to generate more highly qualified leads...cash in by making repeat sales to existing customers and reactivate past customers...make direct sales at a fraction of the cost of traditional campaigns...increase store traffic to profit-breaking levels...and maintain top-notch customer contact that produces even more sales.
This chapter includes seven actual postcards (and documentation of the precise results they produced) that you can model to pack major selling power into your own direct mail.
Chapter 2: A Guided Tour Of A Sales Letter That Sold So Many Pool Cues, They Actually Had To Stop Mailing It!
This is one of my favorite chapters because it focuses on a sales letter that was so successful, the client couldn't produce enough product to fill all the orders. They literally had to stop mailing the letter!
This sales letter was written by Brad Petersen, who is one of the finest and most effective direct marketing copywriters in the business. I provided "back up" services by reviewing the original concept and then the copy itself.
Brad takes you on a blow-by-blow account of how the sales letter was created. He pulls no punches, showing you explicitly what should be included in all sales letter-- and equally important, what should be avoided at all costs! This candid case study is packed with tips and techniques that will increase the sales and profits of any business.
Chapter 3: How A Powerful Secret Produced An 857% Return On Every Dollar Invested In Marketing
This chapter presents a case study of a super-successful format I developed called the "Pat-On-The-Back Case Study." This format creates more trust with both old and new customers than any other strategy you could think of. And everyone knows that trust is a key component to exponentially increasing your sales.
Written jointly by me and my client, Derek D'Angiolini (who is a first-class copywriter in his own right), this letter demonstrates how to make huge increases in sales and profits without investing a penny more than you're already spending on marketing. After modifying Derek's existing sales letter to follow this new format, the results it produced were a lucrative $8.57 return on every dollar invested in marketing!
Chapter 4: The Fastest, Easiest Way To Add Big Profits To Your Direct Marketing
Would you like to have a foolproof way to make 70% of your customers spend more money every time they do business with you? How about getting 94% of all your customers to up the amount of every sale?
This chapter reveals everything you'll ever need to know to realize these kind of profits. Best of all, it takes almost no effort whatsoever, and it's one of the lowest cost techniques you'll ever have the pleasure of profiting from!
This powerful money generator is called an upsell. This chapter gives you all the details of how to work this remarkably simple and profitable technique. Plus, you get three actual examples of upsells that produced the 70% to 94% increases I just told you about.
Once you know what to do, there isn't any business that can't have a highly profitable upsell campaign running and bringing in extra profits in the blink of an eye!
Chapter 5: How To Virtually Eliminate Refunds And Returns
Returned merchandise and refund requests can severely reduce your profits. Not only is there the direct cost of lost sales, but there's also the time and effort it takes to handle these wasteful transactions.
The good news is there are proven ways to reduce your returns and refund requests to the bare minimum. Two of the best ways are presented in this chapter. You'll see precisely how other businesses have trimmed the flow of returns and refunds to a minor trickle, and how you can get similar results in your own business.

Chapter 8: How To Rewrite Your Copy For Maximum Profits
Rewriting your copy is a crucial task. I've lost track of how many times a good rewrite has added tens of thousands of dollars to my own sales.
In fact, there is no world class copywriter I know of who doesn't invest substantial time in rewriting their copy. Because rewriting really pumps selling power into your advertising copy!
Rewriting is remarkably simple once you understand the "recipe." In this chapter, you'll get all the details of my 17-Step Maximum Profit Rewrite Recipe. Then I apply these steps to an actual sales letter that was written by a client of mine.

Using my simple, 17-step recipe, you'll be able to build the same kind of increased sales into every ad and sales letter you write.
Chapter 9: How To Convert A Whopping 37% Of Your Prospects To Paying Customers With Cycle Mailings
Most businesses leave over 50% of the potential money they could make sitting on the table. Why? Because they only mail one time to their prospects.
Cycle mailings, which are a regularly scheduled cycle of follow-up mailings to your prospects, are the answer to capturing all of those sales you've been letting slip through your fingers.
This chapter gives you everything you need to set up your own cycle of high-profit mailings. It focuses on a cycle of letters that's used by one of my favorite clients, Judy Meininger.
Judy will show you how she systematically converts 37% of all prospects to paying customers. Considering that the standard conversion rate for all businesses is about 10%, you stand to more than triple your profits by taking advantage of this simple, proven strategy!

Don Bice has a classic two-step direct marketing campaign that regularly produces over eight dollars for every dollar invested in marketing. But what's even more remarkable is that it's produced these profits like clockwork month after month for over seven years!
For the first (and only) time, Don has agreed to share his secrets of success with my readers. Don's entire strategy and full campaign is carefully dissected to show you how to use these ideas to cash in to the fullest.
Everything's here: Don's space ad, his sales letter, his two brochures (and the reasoning behind having two different brochures in the same package), his lift letter, and his order coupon. Don breaks each piece down block by block, revealing his inside secrets you can use to create a perennial, high profit blockbuster of your own!
Street-Smart Education --
There's More Still!
I think you'll agree that the multi-million dollar ideas I've just told you about are far and away the most comprehensive collection of proven, high-profit direct marketing strategies you'll ever find. But I'm just getting started!
You see, those chapters have been created only from the ten issues that made up the original subscription run. I've expanded the material and added five new chapters to kick your profits up even higher. Here are the powerful marketing weapons you'll gain from these additional chapters:
Chapter 11: How To Create Blockbuster Offers That Prospects Simply Can't Refuse
I was talking with a colleague the other day and he asked me how many headlines I write before I choose just the right one for my ads and sales letters. Now, conventional direct marketing wisdom says that the first thing you should do is spend hours writing and rewriting a long list of headlines-- the longer, the better. By continually working and reworking these headlines, you'll supposedly come up with one that will far outperform all others.
Sorry, but I think that's a load of manure. I personally never write more than one or two headlines. And I never even begin to think about headlines until after I've crafted an offer that's so enticing, my prospect would have to be a complete fool to pass it up.
You see, years of expensive trial and error have taught me that...
The more enticing you can make it, the more value you can pour into it, the more benefits and components you can stack on top of each other in your deal, the more you're going to sell!
Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. In these competitive times, customers demand more than what they're paying for. And if you can deliver that, you can write your own ticket to certain wealth.
The most successful deal I've ever created is the offer that sold the charter subscriptions to Direct Marketing Hotseat. The first day after the mailing dropped, the phones began ringing off the hooks.
My ordering service, with eight dedicated lines, couldn't come close to handling all the orders. With those lines tied up, people began calling my office to subscribe. In a matter of minutes, both my lines were bogged down as well.
Even with ten different lines and ten different people trying to take the orders, we couldn't even come close to handling them all. Believe me, this is the kind of problem you love to have to solve!
In this chapter, I show you precisely how I created this blockbuster offer. You'll get my triple-threat strategy for building offers that are so compelling, people can't help digging into their wallets and sending you money.
You'll see how your headline and all your body copy naturally flow out of your offer. In fact, once you've crafted the right offer, the rest of your copy nearly writes itself.
Most importantly, you'll come away with a comprehensive understanding of how to create offers that sell like wildfire. This skill alone, which few people possess, is easily worth a small fortune.
Chapter 12: 55 HOT Tips For Boosting The Pulling Power Of Your Direct Mail
This chapter is jammed full of proven, inexpensive techniques covering every aspect of your mailing package. And I've made it super easy to use by organizing the techniques according to each specific area of your mailing piece.
You'll have dozens of proven, high profit techniques at your fingertips - ready to use to increase the success of all your mailings. Just plug them in and watch your sales shoot up the charts!
Chapter 13: The Ultimate Direct Mail Secret: How To Pull 8%-22% Response On Every Mailing You Ever Send
Tired of response rates of 2% or less on your direct marketing? A major reason response is so low is you're hitting the wrong prospects through the wrong lists or media.
This chapter reveals four simple, inexpensive, deadly accurate ways to make sure your offer gets to your ideal prospects. And it gives you a remarkable new way of structuring your offer that vastly outperforms all other offers. Together, these strategies regularly produce response of 8% to 22%, as opposed to the lukewarm industry standard 2%.
These strategies have more than quadrupled the profits of my own business in short order. They can do the same for you too!
Chapter 14: The Jeff Paul Interview: Direct Marketing Success Secrets
Jeff Paul is one of the most successful direct marketers in the country. I was absolutely floored by how Jeff lays it all on the line in this interview. He holds nothing back.
Jeff's secrets for doubling or tripling the number of qualified leads you get and convert is well worth the entire cost of this course. And that's just the beginning. Jeff goes on to show you exactly what to do to sell more of your products more often. Then he reveals how to use his simple plan to easily produce a six or seven figure income year in and year out.
Chapter 15: The Headline Clinic
Powerful headlines are absolutely crucial to maximizing your profits. Since you only have a few seconds to seize your reader's attention and convince them to keep reading your ad or sales letter, you'd better be able to stop them in their tracks.
For this clinic, I'm joined by Dan Kennedy, Ted Nicholas, Bob Bly, Brad Petersen, T. Harv Eker, and Brian Voiles to show you everything you need to create the kind of headlines that get optimum results.
You'll discover what's crucial to include in every headline, what to absolutely avoid, and ethical ways to "swipe" headlines from other ads and sales letters. When you're done with this chapter, you'll be a master at creating headlines that sell much more of what you have to offer.
