  1. Mr. Kaselnak,

    You may remember me from the Hoard Clients System’s days. I run GiftCounsel.com
    in Jacksonville, Florida. I am one of the believers in the value of Hoard mailings, and you were kind enough to work with me years ago. I now have a museum client who is interested in working with Hoard, but I have not heard back from the only contact information I could find on the Internet. Can you put me in contact with someone I can speak with.

    Mr. Kaselnak,

    Thank you for the marketing tips and techniques. I appreciate your creativity and would love an opportunity to discuss further opportunities. I would welcome your call or if you would rather an email would be fine.

    Mike – how do I sign up for 2 Objects ?

    Thanks – Jim

  4. Gary says:

    Mike – We would like to impliment your Royal/Loyal program. Can you send us the references for services to create the newsletters and postcards. Thanks!

    • Hi Gary, I’m glad you’ve decided to move forward with the Royal/Loyal… you’ll be happy you did! I actually have 12 postcards that you can use to get you started. You can find them here: http://www.mikekaselnak.com/2010/11/the-guide-to-whacking-your-competitors-achilles-heel/

      Otherwise, there are lots of postcard companies out there… just Google postcards (Do NOT use the electronic ones… they’ll hurt you more than they help you. It’s gotta have a stamp on it!).

      As far as newsletters, you can again get them various places. I’m partial to the one that I write for advisors that is available as a member of http://www.2Objects.com because after 10 years of writing them for advisors, I know the ones I write work… But there are certainly others… Google “client newsletters for financial advisors” it you’ll see lots of people offering them.

      Hope this helps Gary!

        Mike. You are the man. And because you are the most forthcoming marketer I’ve encountered in recent memory,
        if not ever, can you tell me how I might avail myself of the $1 first month offer? I’d like to jump in and see if we
        have the capacity to begin the 2Objects program. Thanks!

    I would like to leran more about how to get involved with your system.

    • I generally do a webinar to explain the system in detail and answer questions that come up. I just did a webinar recently, and I’m not sure when the next one is. I can send you a replay in the meantime; it may at least answer some of your questions and then you will have a better idea of what things need more clarification. Again, it may or may not answer all of your questions…it might even lead to some questions you hadn’t thought of…but at least it’s a good first step to getting a handle on the program to see if it is something that might work for you….

    Mike-
    I read your 5Q Process guide, and I think you’re absolutely right!…I’m no more than one of a million “umbrella” salesman on the street…and I’m stuck in that quandary of figuring out how to differentiate myself from the pack…ie: my message of uniqueness…HELP!!
    Bob

    • Bob,

      I’d suggest going through the steps outlined in that guide to create your own unique message. It’ll take some work, but it’s well worth the effort!

      Good luck!
      Mike
