Do you have a newsletter that you post out to clients? Does the sector you work in require clients receive formal documentation packs?
Mail fulfilment is the formal marketing term for putting documents in envelopes and posting them! We take your client mailing lists, cleanse them, create labels, print out letters, put documentation in envelopes and post them. It’s simple, but if you don’t do it regularly like we do it can be time-consuming and distract from core activities.
Let us provide you with a fulfilling service!
- Efficient and systemised processes
- Databases, labelling, printing, postage, tracking, follow-up
- Focus on your core activities
