2009 Off To Strong First Quarter for Direct Mailing Lists Provider
First Quarter 2009 Sales are up over 30% against Q1 '08 here at DCS Marketing Solutions LLC and GreatMailingLists.com. I don't say this to be boastful--although it is nice to see--but as a thank you to our customers and more importantly as a barometer of change in today's business marketplace.
Change or Die
These are the worst of times, these are the best of times, to paraphrase Charles Dickens. For almost everyone, concern over finacial instability and the present--let alone the future--is a reality and not just an emotional response. Need I go on?...
This is the 30th year that I am blessed to be working in the Direct Marketing industry. I have observed many socio and economic changes in this country during this time--having worked during three (3) prior economic downturns (although none quite as harsh as this one) and one thing stands out to me about Amercian Business throughout.
- Small business drives this country during economic downturns.
- Big business will never fail to screw good people.
- Americans are a resourceful lot and we come up with workable solutions where others see none.
- Greedy people suck.
And where is all this leading...why Change of course!
Change is why my company's business is outperforming 1st Qtr. 2008.
The landscape of American business is once again changing and a multitude of small businesses are being launched by former executives and sales people from bigger businesses. The net result is leaner, more lithe businesses that are better prepared to bend with the prevailing wind and not snap like a tree in a hurricane.
These businesses need cost effective solutions that don't hold them to annual contracts or exhorbitant minimums. And that is why our Mission Statement is: "GreatMailingLists.com is a website developed to provide superior general interest and niche market direct mailing lists and email marketing lists to small and mid-sized businesses. Because these lists are available direct online, we are able to keep costs down--which we pass on to you, the end user. "
And even with our low costs and low minimums, we have been known to work with new businesses to help them to establish themselves whenever necessary.
I have been known to spend 15 or 20 minutes talking with a prospective customer trying to talk them out of doing what they thought was a great idea...why? Because it's the right thing to do, and wish there were more people out in the business world who would do the same for me in certain situations.
I'm told we reap what we sow.
First Quarter Sales are up over 30% here.

In the next few weeks we will be launching an entirely new way to target local prospects on a nationwide scale.
Now you say awe shucks Doug, I've tried premover lists before, they work ok in a brisk marketplace, but in today's economy--simply knowing that someone is advertising their house for sale is not a measureable indicator that they are moving. TRUE.
That's because you haven't tested our Premovers yet. These premovers come from moving related services sources and we have the ACTUAL MOVE DATE.
Now these leads don't come cheaply, but think about this. These leads give you the ability to communicate with a New Mover before they even move into their new neighborhood. That type of leg-up on the competition is priceless.
At DCS Marketing Solutions LLC and GreatMailingLists.com it doesn't matter to us whether you drive a Porsche or a Chevy. If you're looking for help to grow your business, we're here.
