Because of the revolution in communications, the mail order field now has great potential as a home-based business for any savvy and energetic businessperson with a minimal investment. Working from a kitchen table, you can take orders, process payments, then dispatch shipments picked up by a parcel service from a remote warehouse run by yet another vendor.

- Secrets for saving money on advertising
- Choosing high-response mailing lists
- Success secrets of the industry's top movers and shakers
From painless business planning and employee hiring to the best ways to advertise products, this practical, easy-to-understand step-by-step guide puts you on the right oath ro starting a successful mail order business.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
