The Million Dollar Bill Sales Letter!

Many moons ago, Robert Collier created the first dollar bill letter. And he used it during the 1920’s! Yes, that’s right. During the 1920’s he attached a dollar bill to thousands for sales letters which were marketing a non-profit organization.

In the 1920’s, a dollar was worth a little more then $11. So including printing and postage he spent, in today’s dollars approximately $11.50 per letter.

The Dollar Bill Letter!

The original one dollar bill marketing letter was written by Robert Collier, and in his must read (and study like a maniac over and over) he claims that he got a 90% return rate for a charity sales letter.

Since that time a handful of marketers copied his idea to market local businesses, and products and services of all kinds.

The most recent examples I’ve seen using a dollar bill sales letter is for selling local webmaster services, carpet cleaning, financial planning, and now construction. I even saw a book at a local bookstore enclosing a dollar bill in the cover of their book which was about how to fold a dollar bill into all kinds of cool things (Origami).

I am sure there are dozens of other industries using it as well.
