4. How does mail merge work?

 

Mail is proven to work better when you personalize your piece. Instead of saying "Dear Sir", you can say "Dear John" using mail merge. But there is much, much more.

  • If you know their favorite brand or flavor, you can CHANGE that brand or flavor FOR EVERY CUSTOMER.

  • You can use different account numbers, balances or calculated data - like different payment amounts.

  • You can use different dates, times, locations, names, places etc.

  • You can use different phone numbers and extensions for your different sales people or for tracking.

  • You can refer to the client personally again and again in your letter.

  • You can change each letter to test the difference in your response rate.

  • You can make different offers to see which works better.

You can merge any data in your mailing list into your mail piece. So you could assign a different account number to each person on your list, or a different time, date, special offer etc. As long as it's in your mailing list you can merge the information.

 

Mail merge is extraordinarily powerful. It will increase your response and make your mailing more profitable. Note: Mail merge is only available on the front of your letter. It is not available on the backside.

 

5. Do I have to understand how mail merge works in Word to use it?

Mailing Services

 

1. What is included in your mailing service?

 

First we run your mailing list through Certified Postal Software. You get CASS [9-digit zip code correction] and Delivery Point Verification certification to make sure each mail piece can be delivered. We also look for duplicates and addresses that are not deliverable. Unlike many companies there is no charge for this service.

 

Next we create the required paperwork for the post office [a postage statement], You get a copy of the postage statement when your job is mailed. All of the mail is bar coded to give you the highest deliverability possible.

 

When we deliver your mail to the post office, they create a postal receipt for you specific job. We send you a copy of your postage statement and the postal receipt.

 

2. Where are my letters mailed from?

 

We offer two different services to get your mail there faster. Mail is either sent from the main bulk mail post office in Northern Virginia or it is shipped directly to the local post office serving your area. This will get your standard mail delivered almost as fast as First Class mail for a much lower price.

 

3. How long until my mail gets delivered?

 

Delivery times vary. First class mail is delivered in 1-3 days after the job is delivered to the postal service. Our priority standard mail is delivered in 5-7 days. Regular standard mail is delivered in 7-21 days.

 

4. How do I know my letters are mailed?

 

You get a copy of your postage statement showing when your mail was created and a copy of the receipt from the post office showing exactly when your mail was dropped.

 

Ask about USPS tracking on your jobs. Each piece of mail is scanned as it is delivered. You will receive scan reports directly from the United States Postal Service. You will know exactly when your mail is delivered.

 

 

5. What kind of mailing list can I get?

 

Mailing lists are available in a very wide variety. You can get lists by zip cods, cities, states, etc. in almost any category. From home owners, to residents, business owners, new movers or new businesses, to people with children or even animals, almost any list is available. Think about who your best prospect is and then just let us know what you are looking for. We will get the perfect list for you. See Mailing Lists for information on types and costs of mailing lists.

 

6. Do you clean my mailing list for delivery?

 

Yes. Your list will be CASS [9-digit zip code] and Delivery Point Verification certified. We will also sort it for duplications and addresses that are not deliverable.

 

7. What file format do you need my mailing list in?

 

Excel is our preferred format for accepting mailing lists. But we can work with many different database files types including ACT, DBase, Excel & FoxPro. Please call to check on your specific mailing list format.

 

Here is a sample of what your mailing list may look like. Each merge field MUST be in it's own column.

Remember the power of mail merge - the more personalized your letter is, the higher response you will get. You can merge any data, any place in your letter. Use mail merge to increase your response rate. Full color will also increase your response rate.
