Some Letters from NMOA members

Dear John,
When I first started my mail order business, I mostly learned by trial and error. I had many questions but no one to turn to for answers. When I joined the NMOA you provided me with the answers that shed light into this territory and gave me the information and encouragement that I needed. It was nice to have someone to talk to. I can't thank you and the NMOA enough for your help and patience.

I strongly recommend the NMOA to anyone or organization that wants to be or are already involved in Mail Order. The information I received is worth so much more than the cost of joining this organization.

Best regards,

PJ Baptiste

Dear Mr. Schulte,
Joining the NMOA gave me confidence that I would get business leads. Now I'm not in need of leads anymore -- which is a great thing! However, I still like being a member of the NMOA because it adds 'credibility' to my business. Also, I noticed some 'copywriting tips' on the 'members only' section of NMOA's website. I wanted to learn some more insights. I also admire that NMOA helps small businesses -- like me.

John,
Thanks for your valuable input on our questions. Yes, we are NMOA members and your newsletters and website have been a big help.

Hi John,
Just wanted to let you know that so far the products are a hit where I'm selling them at.

I am really excited about selling these products.

Looking forward to doing a long business through NMOA. I just wish I had come across the NMOA a couple of years ago. This looks like the one I should have done a long time ago.

Sincerely
Charles Fish

Mr. Schulte,
Thank you for recommending us for the magazine article. Entrepreneur interviewed Dad by phone and sent a photographer who stayed all day and took pictures of the entire family and business. The article will appear in the February ‘97 issue - look for it!

Happy Holidays!

Dear Mr. Schulte,
I am writing to send my most sincere gratitude. I am an individual just starting a mail order business. Needless to say, I had many questions and concerns. I joined the National Mail Order Association hoping to receive a little guidance. As it turned out, I received more ideas and encouragement than I could have ever hoped for.

Starting a new business can be a very intimidating and frightening process. I needed the encouragement that I was given. I am grateful to you for taking the time to talk with me at length on the telephone. It helps to hear someone say, "Don’t give up!," "You’re doing fine," and "I want to help!" I am happy to know that I have someone to turn to for assistance. I am glad that the National Mail Order Association is in existence!

Sincerely,

Mr. Schulte,
Thanks a million for the quick turn-around time to my fax. You make me feel that I’m getting my money’s worth with the NMOA. The answers to my questions where answered to my satisfaction.

The same time you were faxing to me I was on the other line with Mr. Mladjenovic, he was delighted to hear that I’m a new member with the NMOA. He is the best. I will be flying to New York to attend his mail order seminar. Between you and Paul it was a blessed day.

Thank you Mr. Schulte for making me feel right at home.

Will be in touch,

Gwen

Dear John,
Sorry it’s taken me so long to send this letter to you. It’s been a very hectic month. In addition to four shows (back-to-back), we just did a major mailing and have been swamped with orders. I guess those are the kinds of problems everyone wants to have!

At any rate, I can’t say "thank you" enough for all your help. The wonderful press coverage is worth thousands of advertising dollars. Enclosed is a little "gift" from the GFP.

You and the National Mail Order Association are the quintessential resource for any mail order company. From information on software packages tailored to mail order businesses to tips on mailings and mailing houses, the Association is a godsend. The newsletter is filled with tidbits aimed at making life easy for the up-and-coming businesses and provides continuous updates on changes in the industry and new mailing lists.

As a relatively new kid on the block (by William Sonoma standards), we still have lots to learn. Just a phone call to you and we have our answers. It’s comforting to have a lifeline to the industry!

Thanks again, John. I’m sure I’ll be talking with you again soon.

All the best,

Beth Hillson

"When we decided to set up our business in the USA and do an American version of our mail order catalog we first needed to find out who the competition would be, what laws and regulations we would face, introductions to industry contacts, and we needed a person to be on-call for all types of questions that were sure to arise. John Schulte of the NMOA helped us in all these areas and then some. We now have a successful operation running in the USA."
