This was a time when the direct response television industry was in its infancy, and had just begun to make its presence felt. Thus began her foray into the world of infomercials, with her launching the Miracle Blade I Infomercial going on air in 1990. The program which was all about a set of multi-purpose knives, took the country by storm, raking in sales of $1 million in just 3 weeks of its being aired on television. The Miracle Blade is now running its 4th version on the Infomercial, and according to market reports, over 12 million knives have been sold since 1989, proving how adept Marsha Kent was in her judgment of the direct response markets. Marsha Kent feels that it is important to reinforce key selling messages at regular intervals. When producing the Infomercial, it is also necessary to involve well-known people like celebrities, who can endorse the product. Marsha Kent has always made the use of people who can vouch for the products that are being marketed. This leads to a sub-conscious mind buy for the consumer. When you use a well-known actor or a sportsperson, you have already made inroads into the consumers mind. Marsha Kent says. It becomes that much easier to get your point across. There is a sense of security in the mind of the consumer. An endorsement by the celebrity works in full favor of an appeal getting built up for the product, says Marsha Kent.To know more about her please visit Resource box:</p> <p>Marsha Kent has an uncanny ability for success.
