You’ll get a lot better reaction and would be surprised to find the increased level of curiosity in the potential buyers. Moreover, you can also send a Fax as rarely any firm uses it and it can give you an edge over the others.

Apart from the above mentioned marketing tricks, another great technique to sell, is to let others do it for you via referrals and testimonials. You can introduce an effective referral program which would be as effective as having a team of the best sales people with the magic touch to find new leads and turn them into sales.
