HOW TO MAKE BIG MONEY FAST, RENTING MAILING LISTS




Anyone wanting or needing to build a fast source of income should



definitely consider establishing a mailing list rental business.



All it takes to get started is your time, and once you're



organized, you can easily parlay this business into a $100,000 a



year income.





The first thing of course, is the compiling of names for your



mailing lists. This is done simply by noting or listing on 3 by 5



index cards the names/addresses on all incoming mail. Arrange



these in zip code and alphabetical order, and you're almost ready



for business.





To build your list of names simply run an advertisement in as



many of the mail order publications as you can afford, offering



free list of 100 mail order buyers for a self-addressed and



stamped envelope. And again, as you get these responses to your



ad, list their names/addresses in your card file system, and file



them alphabetically with your other cards.





Another way to build your list of names fast is to run a short



classified type advertisement offering a free report of some sort



of money-making idea, in exchange for a self-addressed, and



stamped envelope. As you do with all of your other incoming mail,



list the names/addresses on your index cards and file them with



the other cards.





When you've got a thousand names in your file, the next thing is



to purchase a box of self-adhesive or peel and stick labels, and



type your names/address onto these sheets of labels. Typing 31



sheets--33 labels to a sheet will give you 1,023 names on 31



sheets of labels. Take the sheets of labels to your nearest



photo-copy shop; copy them onto plain paper masters and you're



ready for business.





Meanwhile, be sure to file your plain paper masters and hold



them/guard them with your life. You can send out the labels you



typed on to your first customer.





Look thru all the publications offering advertising space for



mail order operators--clip out and study those advertisements



offering mailing lists--and from these, make up or have made up



for you, a similar ad.





You should be offering your lists for a one-time a $5 per 100



names; $20 for 500 names; and $40 for 1,000 names.





Check with your paper sources for best wholesale prices on reams



of plain paper, gummed labels, and the peel & stick kind. At the



same time, explain what you're about to do with the owner or



operator of your local copy shop, and arrange a deal where by you



can copy your names at reduced prices, so long as you provide



your own paper.





Then, when your orders start coming in--you simply take your



"master mailing lists" to the copy shop, copy them unto plain



paper, gummed or peel & stick labels, and send them out to your



customers. Basically, we suggest that you do all your copying



once a week, package all your orders, for that week, and drop



them off at the post office with just one trip.





Much of the time, you can get free advertising and at the same



time pull in a lot of new names of people who are interested in



mail order, by writing and submitting articles to the various



mail order publications. If you arrange such a deal with a



publisher, run your mailing list ad, and tag your articles with



something such as: For more information or if you have a



particular questions, write to met at...





It would also be a good idea to check out your own capabilities



of producing and mailing out a mail order ad sheet--just a



one-page flyer with 3-columns of ads on one side and a full page



advertisement of some program or product you're promoting on the



other side. The, with such an ad sheet, you contact all the mail



order publishers and offer to run their ad in your publication in



they'll run yours in their publication.





Whenever you're selling a new name/address to your card file,



always mark on the card whether or not you received any kind of



orders from that person. You should also number your mailing



lists--mark "01" on the cards of the first 1,000 names you type



onto your masters, "02" on the next thousand and so on until you



retire or sell your business.





Finally, when you've accumulated 5,000 or more names in your card



file. (incidentally, you can easily store your 3x5 cards in old



number 6 envelope boxes or even shoe boxes. Whenever you're out



shopping, simply ask the store manager or owners if they have any



such boxes that they can give you.)





Anyway, as I was saying, once you've got 5,000 names on file, you



can begin contacting some of the national list brokers and



setting up arrangements for them to a broker or rent your list



for you. Usually, they get 20% of the rental fee each time they



rent your list--a small price to pay when you understand that



these people can rent your list to 50 to 100 times per year. They



do all the advertising and selling for you with your only



responsibility being to work out arrangements to get the lists to



the rental customers.
