4. Write a good plan or folio; then create a good ad to sell it.

Or offer it to others on a "commission" or "all profit" basis

and fill the orders for a SASE. Your offers can then go along

for a free ride when you fill the orders.

5. Make up an interesting ad sheet. Use up some of the spaces for

your own ads then sell enough ads to others to cover the cost of

postage, printing, advertising etc.

6. Advertise a "Free Big Mail for Postage - the More Postage the

More Mail". (Big mail consists of at least one mailorder

publication plus a variety of circulars).

7. Do exchange mailing. You mail 100 of another dealer's circulars

and they will mail 100 or yours.

8. Purchase an accurate postal scale. Then you will never add more

postage than necessary OR you can use up the full value of the

postage being used.

9. Reduce postage by at least 40% by using Bulk Mail. Inquire at

the Post Office. This requires the mailer (U.S.) to sort their

mail by state and zip code and mail at least 200 like pieces at

one time.

10. Save all the used postage stamps off your mail then sell them

to the agents who advertise in the mailorder publications. One

such company is: Mel Enterprises, Box 3777, High River, AB,

Canada T0L 1B0.

11. Stamps that have not been cancelled due to an error of the

postal cancellation machine may be used again.

12. Accept stamps from another country. If you can't use them trade

with a dealer from that country for stamps that you can use or

buy something from them paying them with stamps of equal value.

13. Watch mailorder publications for dealers who have new stamps to

sell at a reduced price.

N.B. It is false economy to not send a SASE when making

inquiries of other dealers. You are more likely to receive

an answer much more quickly and it improves business relations.
