SVR’s purpose is to exchange leads with one another and a lot more. We believe in continuous learning. Our quarterly Professional Development Program increases our sales skills and marketing knowledge.
Last month, Elizabeth Mikrut, U.S. Post Office Business Development Specialist, discussed the Postal Services, “Every Door Direct Direct Mail” program. This is a simple process where a business can go online at USPS.com/everydoordirectmail. You’ll be able to choose an area to saturate with direct mail whether nearby or even out of state. Routes are displayed and other demographics. Upon selecting an area you’d like to target, you can determine how much to spend on direct mail and pay online for the delivery of your direct mail piece. The cost of postage is .176 cents per item. The only other fee is the cost to print your direct mailing item. Mikrut said, “Direct mail is economical. Every business can benefit. This is an easy way to get your business into the hands of new customers.” Several SVR members have used this service with successful results.
