Fwd: North American Fishing Club

Response from the North American Fishing Club concerning a targeted 
press release encouraging NAFC members to join NFC (copy attached). I am 
a NAFC member, so my membership allows me access to the NAFC 
publications concerning my activities. It appears that the press release 
was well received, as the press release was pitched as a benefit to NAFC 
members.  The press release should be printed in an upcoming edition of 
North American Fisherman.

As the NAFC is an organization with over 2 million members, if even 1/10 
of 1 percent are interested enough to join the NFC and get their 
complimentary Tomelleri print, we will get about 2000 additional members 
(and about $20,000 dollars for NFC programs). As Konrad's address 
includes "Dept. NAFC" we will be able to track the response.  Using a 
"Dept XXXX" in a return address is a standard marketing tool used to 
identify which magazine ad the person is responding to. The "XXXX" is an 
abbreviation for the group, so a press release sent to the American 
Cichlid Association would be Dept. ACA, etc. Suggest that everyone who 
provides a press release to particular magazines, groups, etc. use Dept 
XXXX as part of Konrad's address to help us track where our efforts 
bring the best response.
