It is actually 3 seconds of attention that is too much. Your advertisement attention time drops to 2 seconds if your insurance sales ad is in a printed magazine or amongst a sealed stack post card advertisers. Your potential client may also pitch a sales message or post card with too many unnecessary details so fast that it almost goes to the trash.
Your sales message only has three seconds to grab their attention and hold it. Your advertising piece will be lost forever to junk mail land if it doesn’t. It is the same cost to get attention and not to. Advertisers who are extremely sharp can achieve a 1.5% response rate on Business to Business mail (B2B). Your personal mail could be affected and you may only receive a half-percent reply rate.
It doesn’t matter if (1) you use an experienced standard (formerly known as bulk) mailhandler to get the best rates or (2) if first-class mail techniques are used. (3) Even if the address was handwritten, (4) if someone attaches first-class stamps. You can send your insurance message on a simple post card, a colorful, eye-catching postcard, a tri-fold mailer or a letter in a fancy colored envelope. You or a hired copyrighter could professionally write your message. These options are only a small part of your final results.
Your response rate capability can be 40% to 60% higher if you have a target refined list. If you are unable to get their attention, why buy a quality list of prospects? List brokers or list compilers can help you maximize your results. Your response quality will improve the more detailed your insurance list.

If you are not satisfied with the quality of your advertisement, don’t worry! Use compelling verbs and adjectives.
