Direct mail letter for a consultant

Capturing new prospects and clients for a management consultant

This direct mail letter for a consultant proves, once again, that direct mail still works.

The consultant, a management consultant, had an idea for a campaign already in mind: To send a two-page letter to CEOs, presidents, and business owners who might be facing a difficult situation.

To capture the names and contact details of readers who might be interested in such services later, the direct mail letter also offered a "free, special report" filled with management-type information--a good strategy if you want to maximize the results of your direct mail campaign.

We included a postage-paid business reply card, too, inviting readers to mail or fax it back to request the free report and/or a free consultation.

Results of the direct mail campaign

Although what I'm about to tell you may sound strange and unbelievable, this client, for some reason I attribute to personal quirkiness, was not willing to provide response rate details after the mailing. He did, however, tell me that the letter had performed just as well as a previous letter, which I later learned was written by a famous B2B direct marketing writer with dozens of books to his credit. That was a nice boost to my ego.... 🙂
