Check this Online Marketing Service by the Post Office
The U.S. Postal Service began a new program called the Each Door Direct program that’s earning money for a lot of little businesses. This is ideal for many businesses to target people in their area including: dry cleaners, pizza locations or restaurants, auto dealers, real estate people, lawyers, and accountants.
- They’ve Made It Relatively Easy – No permit is required for this and you don’t need to obtain a mailing list. And using the Postal Service’s online tool, you can pick either a business/residential or merely residential route. What you can not do (at least ) is pick business-only. But the post office says they are working on this option.
- The Minimum – You select the postal route along with the zip code. With their site and this tool, you may see addresses onto its amount and the paths. You must email each address . You can’t target one stop. You may decide whether to include businesses or apartment complexes and post office boxes.
There is another way instead of picking individual routes. You can enter the position of your business and request every single address within a mile or within three miles or whatever. It shows you places the exact price and that could be.
- And the Maximum – However, this really is the service which means you have got to do it exactly their way. You may only mail around 5000 pieces of email per day.
Bundling Them that the Post Office Way
They need to be packed in groups of 50. Let’s say a path has 226 addresses. You would have four packages of 50 each and one package of 26. Each package must get a”facing slide” on the front which identifies the postal course. You could cover a mailing service to handle the whole thing or employ someone to bundle them. Or you have a party that is bundling and can sit down in front of the TV with your family members and friends. Though since the post office is picky careful with the counting. Each piece should have an”address bar” which must be in a specific place on the mailing.
The Way to Use It
Here is what you can mail in this program: postcards that are large. The post office requires them”flats” Up to 12×15 inches at 14.5 cents each (for many deliveries). I’ve see that reference of”for most deliveries” but I am not sure in what scenarios it costs . You then take them to this particular post office and pay by check, money, metered postage or debit card (but not charge card the last I heard but they were working on this too ). If you wanted to ship your cards to another city simply mail them in a huge box with all the paperwork (and payment) inside.
If you’ve got questions about the program, simply do an internet search [ www.postofficeshours.com ] or call their hotline: 877-747-6249.
Many marketers are employing these cards to market advertisements in the exact same area all to companies. The Postal Service really has a good idea. I urge you to give it a look.
