Mike Rosen, president of consulting firm ML Innovations, Inc., admits he chucks a lot of direct mail into the trash. In a recent blog, he analyzes a successful piece of direct mail that halted that instinct and held his attention. The piece was a post card with no envelope to keep him from scanning it quickly.

The carefully planned sensory experience of the card hooked him; the personal touches reeled him in. Enjoy the rest of his 16 tips in the blog:
