Do you know what direct marketing has in common with the Kentucky Derby?
In horse racing, the winners often beat the losers by a second or two … or even less.
But as a result, the “win” horse can generate more profits than the place or show horse – often thousands of dollars more.
In the same way, applying just one or two simple techniques to a direct response promotion … often entailing tiny changes … can yield an enormous dividend in improves sales results – doubling or even tripling sales!
And I’ve made a career of achieving big wins not by being a better or more creative copywriter … but simply by knowing what works … and then applying these proven response-boosting techniques in promotions where no one else thought to use them before:
** For U.S. West, I suggested enclosed an audio with a “product demo” with our letter to CEOs. It was not the first mailer to enclose a disk. But it generated an immediate $5.9 million in sales with a 20:1 return for the direct mail program, and won the Direct Marketing Association’s Gold Echo award.
** For years, Medical Economics tested countless mailers against its control for Physician Desk Reference—with no luck. Then I added a little gimmick – a sticker plus an unusual graphic on the outer envelope – and the new test package tripled the control.
** The half-page, 2-color ad I wrote for AirPol’s new pollution control device was the #1 inquiry producer in 6 consecutive issues of Chemical Engineering magazine. It featured a revolutionary new technology that no one realized I essentially made up – although every word in the copy was true.
Since 1979, I’ve been studying, learning, collecting, and using an assortment of direct response tips and tricks that I dare say is unduplicated in the industry today.
With my “direct response bag of tricks,” I’ve helped dozens of companies – some of which are listed at left – increase response rates 10% … 25%. … 50% … even 100% or more.
Now, you can have my complete toolkit of proven direct response boosters – to use in all your marketing – for less than I charge for just 5 minutes of my time!

“By far the single most important book on direct marketing in years.”
--Dylan Jovine, Tycoon Research
“In Bob’s collection of battle-proven marketing strategies, I see at least 50 gems that he’s used to grow our profits over the years. Yet there’s another 200 or so we haven’t even acted on yet. I can’t wait to give them all a try.”
--Phil Ash, President, National Institute of Business Management
“In a demanding field where accountability is king, Bob Bly’s peers consider him America’s number one B2B direct response copywriter. This book is your chance to learn from the best!”

“The best thing about this book is that it’s not a collection of wide-eyed theory and empty catch-phrases. It’s more like a to-do list. Pick the items that will make the most impact on your business and get to work!”
“The direct marketing Bly writes about is real nose to the grindstone marketing, where everything is accountable. It is not brand marketing or the stuff you have likely learned in college. If you have come to the opinion that there is more to marketing than the brand, this book is a great place to start.”
“Bob, the book arrived and it is truly a fantastic read. Well organized, detailed and filled with useful information. To top it off it is bound in hardcover. You put out a lot of great material, but IMHO this may be the best yet.”
"I recently ordered Bly on Direct Marketing. I have to force myself to stop reading it. In fact, I've almost finished it. What a terrific resource at such a low price. Thank you once again, Bob."
