NO BLATANT ADS PLEASE
DM can work but you should also consider...
space ads in publications going to people that represent your target market. Look at it this way:
Direct Mail cost of $500 to $1000 per 1,000 mailed.
Space ad cost of $5 to $25 per 1,000 magazines/newspapers/newsletters distributed.
Granted Direct Mail can contain far more information than most space ads but the space ads work great to "flush" out those prospects and cause them to raise their hands. You can then follow up with a Direct Mail piece.
I applaud your efforts to drive traffic to your site via off-line methods. I think there are a lot of on-liners that could benefit from off-line marketing.
