High Cost of Getting New Customers
Getting new customers is expensive. Let’s say you spend $500 for an ad and you get 10 calls. That’s $50 per lead. If 3 out of the 10 calls turns into a sale, the cost for each sale would be about $166! That can get expensive. Especially during slow periods. Now do your own math. Roughly, how much are you spending on each new customer? How much per sale?
You’ll always require new customers to grow your business. That’s just the cost of staying in business. And it is expensive to get new customers. All the more reason to protect that investment. So, you’ll need to keep the ones you have to maintain growth in your business. And while you can’t keep them all, smart entrepreneurs know how important it is to keep as many of them as possible. Direct mail is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to do that.

Every now and again, send your customers a postcard or a flyer or even a personal letter. By letting them know that you value their business, you’ll build loyalty and goodwill. And by giving them special offers, they’ll feel that much more appreciated and more likely to respond by spending their money with you. The more consistent you are with your contact – the more consistent your cash flow will be.
By keeping your name in front of your prospects and customers, your business is more likely to be referred.
