Post Office Promotes New Products for Small Businesses

If you're a small business chances are you contact customers with mass mailings several times a year for your biggest events or sales. As we all know postage has gone up significantly in the past several years due to the cost of gas as well as the loss of business in light of the convenience of e-mail.

4AllPromos does a lot of mass mailings. We send out samples, catalogs, customer gifts and friendly reminders about re-orders or new and exciting products or buying opportunities. That's why were exciting to read about some of the new and exciting offerings by the United States Postal Service due to be available in mid-April. The post office knows small businesses are vital to the American economy so they have instituted some more convenient and cost effective ways for businesses to reach out to customers and help give businesses a more competitive edge.

The Every Door Direct Mail program is a web-based service that allows businesses to produce mailings without names or addresses to be delivered in a specific neighborhood. Each piece of mail costs on .15 cents (various sizes included). Just like Facebook or Twitter this method allows businesses to reach a certain zone they want to target. Maybe you run a farmer's market and want to target the customers that can walk to the market.  Maybe you want to reach an older audience living in an active retirement community or parents who live in a certain school zone. This feature allows you to cater to their shopping needs.

The second offering is called Click-N-Shop and includes a downloadable desktop application that helps businesses who produce 10 to 100 items of mail a day. The idea of Click-N-Shop is to help businesses boost efficiency.

Mail marketing is still considered to have a good return on investment. It's wise to keep up with the changing trends and offering by all mail competitors to help keep your business budget on track.

5 Mistakes Small Businesses Make...

We all know how tough it is to be a small business these days. Although the economy is tough many small communities have come together to support local shopping efforts. The government even gives special loans and incentives to people interested in starting a small business. According to only 51 percent of start-up businesses will make it to the 5 year mark.

Don't let your small business fail! Keep up with industry wide trends, try new advertising techniques and keep a bond with your customers. Small businesses can be a great thing for a community. Set an example for other small business owners in the community and encourage residents to shop local and support shop owners. Also, avoid these 5 pitfalls:

1. Spending too much or too little money- Consult with a financial advisor who can help you budget, figure out overhead costs and payroll and keep spending on track.

2. Ignoring the internet or social media- Social media is free! It's also a great way to advertise, reach niche audiences and have a personal conversations with customers. Take a workshop on social media or ask a friend to help you learn the ropes. You'll be amazed at the power of 'word of mouth' advertising on these sites!

3. Know your competitors- Are you a one of a kind company or is your market saturated with competitors? Make sure you do your research and find out ways to make your business more unique than that of the competitor. 

4. Marketing strategy- Create a marketing strategy and don't wear it out too fast. Who is your target audience? Decide what your best advertising avenue is-newspapers, online, social media, radio, billboards, etc. If you have a big enough budget you may even want to consider hiring an outside firm to handle your advertising needs. 

5. Forgetting the customer- The customer always comes first! Sell products to the consumer. Thank repeat customer's and encourage new ones to return with discounts, incentives or maybe even a promotional product!

Let 4AllPromos know what your budget is and help us help you survive in this dog-eat-dog market. We cater to small businesses with a host of affordable and practical promotional products including tote bags, sticky notes, pens, earth-friendly products, apparel and more!
