USPS opens registration for direct mail promotions

From USPS News Link:

Doing business with USPS has become an even better deal thanks to new promotions targeting direct mailers.

With the Direct Mail Mobile Coupon/Click-to-Call promotion, business customers receive an upfront 2 percent postage discount when they integrate mobile coupons or click-to-call technologies into their direct mail campaigns.

“Direct mail coupons that can be redeemed on a mobile device are a great way to get consumers to interact with brands and drive business results,” said New Products and Innovation VP Gary Reblin. “It’s the perfect combination for customer acquisition and retention.”

Click-to-call is a Web-based communication tool that allows consumers to make a phone call by clicking a button, opening images or text on websites, or enabling use of other Internet-connected icons such as 2-D barcodes.

Registration now is open for the Direct Mail Mobile Coupon/Click-to-Call promotion, which runs March 1-April 30, 2013.

A second promotion, Earned Value Reply Mail, provides First-Class Mail business customers with a 2-cent credit for returned reply pieces that can be used to pay for postage on future mailings.

Registration also is now open for this promotion, which runs April 1-June 30, 2013.
