Elementary Mail Deliver First-Class Hybrid Mail Service to Consumer Market


(PRWEB UK) 11 May 2012

Hybrid Mail certainly isnt new although many existing services serve only the business-to-business market. Elementary Mail is bringing a fresh introduction to this already popular concept, with a consumer-geared mail service for the everyday person.

Everyone has shared the frustration of keeping up with snail mail; running to the Post Office for a stamp, or taking envelopes from work. Thanks to Elementary Mail, those looking to send postal mail now need nothing more than a computer and a cup of coffee.

The new online mailing service allows users to send postal mail to any address in the world by doing nothing more than spending a few minutes at their computer.

While regular letters are the obvious offering, Elementary Mail really does have a first-class range of products available. From CVs to love letters, personalized cards and even mail-able gifts the web based service is poised to become a godsend to those who do communication the modern way.

The companys Founder, Henry Dudding, explains why Elementary Mail is different from existing hybrid mail services:

We dont place a focus on business-to-business orders, which usually have to be placed in extreme bulk. We focus instead directly at the consumer allowing single orders with no quantity or contractual requirements says Dudding.

He continues, This is perfect for job seekers who may want to keep a CV on file with us and quickly mail it they can also use one of our CV templates to give it a professional look. The service is also set to become popular among holidaymakers who want to send mail back to the UK quickly, as well as the over-50s market, who want to keep communicating in a traditional way.

Everything on the site is neatly laid out, with templates and guides available for most products. As mentioned earlier, the site also contains a gift shop for those looking to ship a last minute gift, or send one while away from the UK.

Whilst the modern and chic site offers a vibrant method of communication, Dudding believes that postal mail is still vital to 21st Century life:

Emails and texts may dominate communication these days, but letters are absolutely still needed. We became aware that most households dont have the necessary stationary on hand anymore. Thats why weve moved the process of sending postal mail onto the internet making it simple, affordable and fast he concludes.

SpyderLynk Sweetens Participation in U.S. Postal Service Direct Mail Promotion

Denver, CO (PRWEB) May 15, 2012

SpyderLynk, a leading marketing technology company and creator of the SnapTag, today announced that it will be encouraging participation in the U.S. Postal Services 2012 Mobile Commerce and Personalization Promotion by offering its Buy-it-Now Mobile Commerce SnapTags to direct mail customers during the summer promotion. The Postal Service promotion is intended to reinforce direct mails continuing relevance as a marketing channel.

The Postal Services 2012 Mobile Commerce and Personalization Promotion offers direct mail customers a discount on Standard Mail and First-Class Mail letters, cards and flats that include a two-dimensional barcode or print/mobile technology that can be read or scanned by a mobile device. When scanned, the technology must activate a link directly to either a mobile-optimized Web page that allows the mail recipient to purchase a product or service or to a mobile-optimized and customized Web page uniquely tailored to the mail recipient and accessible by a personalized URL.

As an added incentive, SpyderLynk is offering a 10% discount to the Postal Services direct mail customers that choose SnapTags for their campaigns.

Were delighted to offer our mobile shopping and commerce technology to direct mail marketers during the Postal Services summer promotion, said Nicole Skogg, SpyderLynk Founder and CEO. Buy-it-Now SnapTags provide a turnkey solution to engage consumers in a powerful and highly interactive way and convert those direct mail prospects into customers. For direct marketers, mobile provides a new channel to add names to their databases, reduce acquisition costs, and increase ROI.

According to U.S. Postal Service literature, “mobile technologies continue to be one of the fastest growing marketing sectors, and marketing resources will be increasingly diverted to this medium. As technology changes the marketing landscape, the Postal Service must ensure that direct mail continues to be a relevant part of the marketing mix. By encouraging customers to adopt and invest in technologies that enhance how consumers interact and engage with mail, the Postal Service can fundamentally improve the long-term value of the product which will provide substantial benefits in future years.”

SpyderLynks Buy-it-Now Mobile Commerce SnapTag is a proprietary 2D Mobile Barcode solution enabling marketers to simply, yet elegantly, activate mobile shopping and commerce engagements. Consumers with smart or standard camera phones can use Mobile Commerce SnapTags featured on direct mail to activate a shopping experience or a purchase engagement. SpyderLynks mobile commerce solution packages together shopping templates, transaction processing, a mobile wallet function, social shopping tools and fulfillment capabilities making programs simple and easy to implement.

Buy-it-Now SnapTags offer much more than the more traditional QR code because marketers have the ability to fully brand SnapTags with logos and or meaningful icons turning them into interactive marketing tools compared to the Rorschach-looking black box QR code. Additionally, while QR codes must be scanned with an app to begin a dialogue, with SnapTags, consumers only need a camera phone to begin a mobile interactive dialogue and no app is required, meaning they can be accessed by virtually anyone with a mobile phone. Whats more, SpyderLynks smart marketing platform allows marketers to deliver highly targeted mobile campaigns and measure results with pinpoint accuracy.

Customer registration opens May 1, 2012 and the promotion period is from July 1, 2012 through August 31, 2012. For more information about the Postal Service promotion please visit: USPS Mobile Commerce & Personalization website.

Elementary Mail – Mail Made Easy


(PRWEB UK) 5 July 2012

Only a few decades ago with the advent of Electronic Mail, the decline of the postal service seemed inevitable. But today it is well understood that the postal service plays a vital role in delivering the ever increasing amount of products users are buying online. According to a 2010 Connected Kingdom (BCG) report, in that year 62% of UK residents, or 31 million people bought goods and services online.

Elementary Mail is a new service that allows users to send letters, cards and gifts to any address in the world by doing nothing more than spending a few minutes at their computer.

The Company’s founder Henry Dudding explains why he believes that postal mail is still vital to 21st Century life:

“It could be argued that one factor in the decline of the postal system, has been the slow pace at which the service has adopted to change over recent years. It is no longer convenient or cost effective to buy stamps, stationery and envelopes and then hand deliver any finished item to the nearest post box. That’s why we moved the whole process of sending mail online, making it simple fast and affordable”

Elementary Mail put’s users firmly back in the driving seat, giving them all the tools they need to create and edit Letters, Greetings Cards, Promotional material and much more. With a wide choice of designs users simply create each item to their liking and leave Elementary Mail to dispatch it the same day.

The company has big plans for the future including the creation of a mobile phone application which Dudding believes will make the whole process of sending mail even easier:

“A mobile phone application will allow users to send mail directly from their smart phone or digital device, potentially making trips to the high street for stamps or stationary a thing of the past” In the meantime Elementary Mail’s mobile friendly website already supports a wide range of web enabled devices for those on the move.

He continues, “The service isn’t just for UK residents, it offers a fast and convenient alternative compared with air mail for those looking to send postal mail into the UK”.

Elementary Mail is the perfect solution for expatriates looking to stay in contact with friends and loved ones, as well as holiday makers looking to send mail or even a last minute gift back into the UK while on their travels.

Users can also access a selection of letter templates ranging from CV’s to thank you letter’s, as well as an address book for keeping track of friends and contacts.

To send mail today, please visit: http://www.elementarymail.com

EGPrint is Now Offering eddm Postcard Printing | Every Day Direct Mail Printing Services


Miami, FL (PRWEB) August 09, 2012

What Is EDDM

There’s a new direct mailing service offered by the United States Postal Service called EDDM. This acronym stands for Every Door Direct Mail and is a service for small businesses to target local neighborhoods. This service is a unique opportunity for companies to spread the word about the products or services they offer. In the past many businesses have utilized the Internet to do this. However, with the Internet boom online ads are more crowded and many people are not paying attention to them anymore because of this. Every day direct mail postcards and flyers are received by individuals to promote businesses and are one of the most successful ways to advertise a business.

How EDDM Works

One of the hardest parts about having a business is advertising and letting others know what they offer the community. EDDM can help a business do this easily. First, a business will have postcards or flyers printed up with pertinent information about their business. Information that should be included on the postcard includes the name, address and phone number of the business, as well as a brief overview of the business or service. The business will then have the post office mail these postcards to local neighborhoods in hopes of letting households know about the services they offer. Some businesses will also offer a coupon or incentive on the card, such a free gift, to coax individuals who receive the postcard to patronize the business.

EDDM Has Many Benefits

There are many benefits to a business utilizing EDDM. The biggest benefit is that it is a lot cheaper than doing a standard mass mailer to local neighborhoods. Businesses do not have to open up a postage permit just to mail out the postcards. Postage permits are expensive and cost over $ 400, which might not be an expense a business that is just starting out or struggling can handle. By comparison EDDM costs less than 15 cents per piece mailed. Also, businesses don’t have to search for specific addresses to mail out postcards or flyers too. Instead, the postal worker that is delivering the mail will just place a flyer or postcard in the mailbox of each person that is on their postal route. This service is a way to reach a large amount of people in a short period of time.

How EDDM and Services from Egprint.net Go Hand In Hand

To utilize EDDM, the business will need to find someone who is versed with EDDM printing and will need to obtain these services from a reputable printing company. Egprint.net, a wholesale printing company, can do that for you. Egprint.net is an online printer that is located in Miami, Florida. They can print products for businesses anywhere in the world. They offer a wide array of products such as business cards, postcards and brochures, as well as a 24 hour turnaround time and easy online ordering. Egprint.net has prices that are very affordable even for those businesses that have a low budget for marketing services. Free Design Templates are also available, and customers can order a sample request to ensure that they are getting what they want before they commit to ordering it. This will prove to be a return on investment for many businesses.

Businesses That Might Benefit From Utilizing EDDM and Egprint.net

Many businesses can benefit from ordering products from egprint.net and utilizing EDDM services. Businesses such as restaurants, hair salons and dentists may offer great products or services, but struggle to let individuals in the community know where they are located and what they offer. By ordering postcards using egprint.net and mailing them to neighboring households by utilizing EDDM services, these businesses can let these households know that they are in the area and wish to gain them as customers. By sending out an EDDM postcard that was printed utilizing egprint.net, the business can rest assured that they will successfully let others know about their business and gain customers.

How to Get Started With EDDM

To get started, a representative of the business will need to go online and create a USPS business account through the USPS’ Business Customer Gateway. They will need to write down their Customer Registration ID because they will need it for the form PS Form 3587. Then they can use the online tool to choose mailing routes to send their promotional full color postcards to. This tool will estimate the number of households and businesses in the area so that the business can estimate the amount of postage needed to mail the postcards. Afterwards the individual is ready to contact EGPRINT.Net. AT this point they can help you with all your design, and printing needs. Start growing your business today, and call EGPRINT.net, Your Print Super Store.
