There are other tricks of the trade we can employ, such as knowing the limits of postal weights and how to maximise them. Why waste your weight allowance on half-empty envelopes or shrink wrap, when you can fill them to capacity? There are opportunities to show your target audience other products or offers, or partner with a complementary service to share the costs of the mailer. Now that’s an intelligent way to save money on your marketing costs and increase your sales revenue.

Automated Mail.

There was a time when sending mail was a manual process, but now with sophisticated automation those days are long behind us. Mail and postage are the most customisable they’ve ever been. We can help keep your campaign within budget and make sure you’re getting the best deal with postal providers. So next time you’re looking for printing and postage services, talk to First Move.
