I hope that you use these ideas and start your own direct mail project because you really can make it. If none of these ideas seem to help, why not start your own ideas list. Every time you see a market of some kind, write it down. Soon you'll have a list of possible markets you could sell something to. Also, examine the normal day to day goings on around you − news, magazines, talk−back radio, overheard conversations etc. You may just pick up a market and product idea. All you have to do is pay attention to what's going on in the world around you and, always ask yourself 'what could I sell them?' Your answer may make you very rich, very quick! You'll be surprised how quickly and easily markets and product ideas will spring into your mind once you start 'looking' for opportunities. The hardest part will then be deciding which project to develop. So go on.
