Mission - turn data into dollars.
The data collection business did over $14 Billion in revenue last year. The Direct Marketing Association says companies spent $191 billion last year on direct- response advertising. The category that includes direct mail and telephone solicitations produced $1.7 trillion in revenue.
The bottom line: The right information will pay for itself. "A good mailing list can produce a couple of millions of dollars in sales all by itself," says Jim Workman, CEO of BFW Advertising Inc., a Boca Raton, Fla., ad agency that builds and refines list databases for clients. A highly targeted list that produces sales "is a corporate asset that's worth its weight in gold."
As an independent affiliate you are helping to build databases. With most Network Marketing Companies, reps are selling a product for the company, we are Building the Product for the company and ourselves.
