OUT OF PRINT. There are a limited number of copies on Amazon.com. If you would like a digital copy of this book, please email me at ARosenspan@aol.com and we will try to accommodate you.
As you know, a "control"
is the best-performing part of your direct marketing program. It
could be your best direct mail package, your best advertisement,
even your best telemarketing script.
Confessions of a Control Freak is a new book that is designed
to help you beat your control, and get the results you want from
your next direct marketing programs.
The book doesn't focus on direct marketing theory — just page
after page of specific, practical ideas and techniques you can put
to use right away. It includes dozens of case-histories — both
successes and failures — and includes chapters on e-mail marketing
and advertising as well as direct mail.
Here are testimonials from industry experts who have already read
"Three hundred thirty pages; not a wasted word. That is my
conclusion after spending a stimulating day with Alan Rosenspans
book. This book is for those who have spent a lifetime in direct
marketing as well as those who are simply curious about what direct
marketing is all about. The structure of the book is simplicity
itself. Rosenspan puts all the direct marketing tools on the table.
Then he provides a Golden Arrow CREATIVITY to hit
a bulls eye time after time. This book is a dream come true."
