What Makes Our Mailing Lists Better?
|Dear Fellow Business Person,|
|Allow me to introduce you to our mailing list service. If you are selling anything to do with how to make money, we are sure we can help you get the kind of response you need in order to make your mailings profitable.|
|It has been proven again and again that direct-mail is the cheapest way for you to reach your prospects. Studies have shown that direct-mail costs considerably less than publication advertising when cost-per-inquiry or cost-per-order is compared. Need proof?...notice all the big, successful multi-million dollar companies who are consistently marketing their products by mail - you can be assured they wouldn't be spending millions of dollars on these mailings if they weren't profitable!|
|Since we do most of our own marketing by direct-mail, we really understand the vital importance of well qualified, fresh and responsive names to your success. We also know that we would have been out of business long ago if we couldn't get your repeat business. The bulk of our sales are re-orders from satisfied customers, the reason? - we provide superior lists at a reasonable price.|
|We have made our prices as low as we possibly can for our high quality names. There is considerable expense involved in obtaining the names and maintaining them to our high standards, but by keeping our overhead at a bare minimum, we are able to offer you these hot-line names at rock bottom prices.|
|It is true that you can buy names at extremely low prices, but it's very dangerous to make your list purchase decisions based on price alone. Cheap lists are generally old and over-used and in many cases haven't been updated in months or even years, resulting in no responses and a very large number of undeliverables. Remember - you always get what you pay for.... "bargain" lists can end up costing you a lot of money in wasted printing, postage, envelopes, labor and lost business!|
|Keep in mind, the difference between $20 per 1,000 names and $40 per 1,000 is only 2¢ per name! This is a very small amount when you consider that it typically costs 40¢ to 55¢ per piece just for printing and postage (that's $400 to $550 per 1,000 pieces). Doesn't it make sense to spend that little bit extra to be sure that you're not wasting all that money! We can provide you with the names and addresses of fresh, new, live, well qualified prospects who are anxious to receive your offers!|
|Whether you order 200 or 10,000 names you will receive the same prompt and efficient service. We will carefully fill and record your order to avoid sending you any duplicate names when you re-order and we'll RUSH-SHIP your names to you by first class mail at our expense. In addition, every name we sell is backed by our NO-NONSENSE MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE.|
|Won't you give our good names a try on your next mailing....our minimum order is just 200 names and we know our prices can't be beat for names of this quality. Please take a look at our price list. I am sure you'll be pleasantly surprised!|
We look forward to serving you.
There are a lot of things to like about a handheld shower head. In addition to giving you the option to have a traditional stand-under-the-water-and-rinse bathing experience, you can also detach the wand from the fixture on the wall, using it to wash just part of your body (helpful if you don't want to get your hair wet or just want to wash your feet or legs). Handheld shower heads are also wildly popular options for those who have small children or dogs as they allow you to bring the water to the bather, instead of making the bather stand in just the right spot.
It was a close call, but the Delta 755700 (Est. $25 and up) once again earns our Best Reviewed nod in this category. Owners love this inexpensive handheld shower head's seven spray settings, which seem to offer something for everyone. The massage setting is particularly popular. The settings are changed by turning a simple dial that users find easy to use, even with wet hands. They note that it's also very easy to install, making the process of switching to a handheld shower head from a fixed showerhead a breeze.
Most users say the Delta 75700 produces a strong stream, especially for a handheld. It has a 2.50 gallon per minute (gpm) flow rate, and most note that the pressure feels strong whether it's used as a traditional shower head or as a handheld. The 6-foot hose attachment is also a plus. Reviewers are split on durability: Some say the Delta is very sturdy, while others complain that the plastic parts seem flimsy. However, it's backed by a lifetime warranty that covers both the parts and the finish, and Delta customer service gets great reviews for their polite, responsive service. The shower head is available in white, chrome and satin nickel finishes.
The close runner up in this category is the Delta 58471-PK1 In2ition (Est. $160). It does very well in testing done by editors at TheSweetHome.com, but lags behind the Delta 75700 both in number of user reviews and overall ratings from owners. The 58471-PK also only has four settings, to the 75700's seven, but most people only use the same setting(s) over and over, so that probably doesn't matter much. What most say they appreciate is the proprietary technology that makes this 2.5 gpm shower head feel like it's producing a lot more water with a lot more power than its flow rating would indicate. The Delta In2intion seems to be more popular than most shower heads with those who have low water pressure to begin with, which is something we don't see veryoften.
Still this Delta In2ition model disappoints in the value category for many people who say it's overpriced for what you get and that, a for $160 or so, they certainly expect more power and settings. Also, as with the 75700, there are complaints that the hose on the In2ition is stiff and we saw a few complaints that the handheld shower head can be fiddly to remove and place back into the main unit -- an issue we didn't note with the 75700. The Delta 58471-PK In2ition has five available finish options, some that cost less than the chrome, some a that cost more.
For a more water-saving option, the Niagara Handheld Shower Head (Est. $16) earns raves from s hundreds of owners who say it has very good water pressure considering its 2.0 gpm flow rate (it also comes in 1.5 and 1.75 flow rates). It has three adjustable spray settings -- massage, pulsating and a combination -- and a long, 72-inch hose that users say is more flexible than on other handhelds they have owned.
If you can't decide whether you want a regular shower head, a rain shower head or a handheld shower head, we have good news -- you may be able to have it all -- and in one unit.
If what you really want is a multi-spray shower headsystem, but there isn't room for it in your budget, the Ana Bath SS5450 Shower System (Est. $60) is a good compromise. This dual-head shower system combines two five-inch shower heads, one fixed and one handheld. Both heads attach to a single shower arm by means of a three-way diverter mount. Each shower head has five functions: saturating spray, massage spray, bubbling spray and two combination settings. The flow rate is 2.333 gpm per head, or 4.656 gpm if you use both at once. However, several users note that the flow of both shower heads feel weaker when used simultaneously than when used one-at-a-time. Because of the 5-inch heads, this combination shower is more like a rain shower than a traditional shower head.
Owners love the versatility of the Ana Bath shower system, and they also find it very easy to install. The flexible hose is 60-inches long, a bit shorter than some dedicated handheld showers, but most say it's plenty long enough.
If you prefer a smaller head like a more traditional shower, yet still want a dual system, the Hydroluxe Deluxe 3-way Shower Combo (Est. $17) has two shower heads, one fixed, one handheld, both with 4-inch faces, and 24 flow patterns, including massage, rain, mist and various combinations. The handheld nozzle has a 5-foot hose. Most owners agree that this Hydroluxe is a great shower head for the price! And its 2.5 gpm flow is reported as plenty strong, although, as with the Ana Bath, you'll experience some reduction in power if you're using both shower heads at the same time. Users say this system is very easy to install and, while it's mostly plastic, it feels quite durable indeed.
