    I am considering this right now. What points would you divulge, that could help me with the decision? I am curious to as to what the response rate you are seeing, and in what type/size of market. I was thinking of starting with the lowest one, to test the waters a bit.

    I started mailshark about 2 years ago. 500 pieces a week. I see a little over 3% return. Also do new movers program. I have done a few other small promotions but my other thing my customers love is our stamp cards. We give a stamp for each 5$ spent. After 10 stamps we give them 5$ off their next order. We niw are receiving cards back at about 3-4% of sales. In 2 years have gone from 4000/wk to 6700/week and still growing little bit at a time. Finally feeling comfortable about sales.

    I won't be able to make it out, either. But, I am in contact with your company.

    My trade area is about a 2 mile radius. I am only mailing to a radius of about 1 mile. Sales are great , and I'm giving real good delivery times. No one is waiting more then 30 minutes.

    The key is consistency. I may jump to 1500 per week down the road.
