This is the first of 8 emails I’m going to send you. Each email will give you a tip that’ll increase your sales.

How can I be so sure?

It’s because, for over 100 years, direct response advertisers have been testing what works – and doesn’t work – in marketing.

If you added up the cost of those tests – the money spent running the ads, and mailing the sales letters – it would be over £100bn in today’s money.

The good news is that you can piggyback on that research.

And that takes us to today’s lesson: When it comes to marketing your business, you have two choices:

  • You can follow a well-worn path that’s been tried and tested.
  • Or you can be a pioneer and figure things out by trial-and-error.

I think you know which of these makes more sense.

So, how do you make sure you’re doing what works?

If you prefer doing things yourself, I’ve compiled a list of seven essential marketing books to help you get started:
