Direct mail services
I know a lot of friends that have started their own business in something they enjoy doing. I am somewhat headed along those lines with a friend soon. Online businesses are growing day by day. There are so many ebay stores, web stores, and independent websites that offer you to make stores online for a small fee. With such ease of creating your very own shopping cart online, you can be selling (your passion in whatever it may be) in no time. I will be starting up a makeup and jewelry line soon (god willing).
With all these things in mind, I have a friend that owns an online business and relies a lot on Direct mail services to get and send out her goods. Direct mail services can make it easier for any small or large business, to handle mailing flawlessly. For many, having the ease that services like IDRS (canada post) exist is a big relief because of the fact that they can handle boxing, weighing, mail preparation, and anything else that might be essential. For online businesses the “mailing” part is the biggest part because that is how you send out and receive stock as well. If you are mailing out your goods, its necessary to have a good service. Direct mail marketing is also used by businesses to help communicate with their customers and advertise for their business as well. If your small business is looking for cost effective options, then IDRS can be a great direct mail marketing service to start from as well.
As for other online shops, its always important to make a proper plan of how you will execute important parts of the business such as mailing services, receiving stock, customer care, customer service, ordering ease, and billing system.
I wish you the best of luck with starting your business! I’m sure it’ll be a success! Make sure you let me know about the grand opening so I can go shop =) and support you at the same time!
We’re already affiliates, you’ll just have to update my link. My old link is http://www.carrie.symphonize.org – I’ve moved =) I’ll add your link on my end!
Have a wonderful New Year!
Hey Moni! Happy New Year! :D
Long time no see~ I’ve been watching your blog (and Twitter) from afar. I must say, you’ve come a long way since I last commented here.
Online businesses for some reason sound even more harder to maintain than regular businesses. I wish you luck with your endeavors with online businesses. You’ll have to send me link!
Good thing for services like Direct Mail. Well, hiring services will always have their disadvantages and advantages. If you’re just running a small thing on Etsy then I can see why you’d rather ship things yourself. It’s more “personal” that way. From a customer point of view, I’d feel more comfortable if shipping weren’t done by a third party. But if you’re aiming for professionalism then it’s one less thing to worry about.
On another note, I still see that you have my link to Pure-Orenji.info up. I’m thankful that it’s been there all this time. Unfortunately, I’ve decided to let Pure-Orenji.info expire. If you’re still willing to link me, you can always link to my site, Mazohyst.org.
Once again, Happy New Year! Have an awesome 2013. :)
