U.S. Postal Service Mail Distribution Update

If you engage your audience by mailing a magazine or catalog, Kerry Still, Walsworth’s Mail Services Manager, thinks you’ll be interested in a recent opinion article by Eric Katz of Government Executive.

To quote Kerry, Katz’s article “is a succinct and concise summary of the state of domestic mail delivery.”

Kerry continues, “It’s rare to find a discussion like this one that encompasses the consequences of United States Postal Service network consolidation, load leveling, and delivery service standards reduction. Mr. Katz has masterfully explained how the impact of all three USPS initiatives is slowing mail delivery. His accurate depiction of what commercial mailers are experiencing is a sign of what lies ahead unless there is a dramatic change to the mailing environment or to the USPS mail distribution methodology.”

If you have questions about your mailing needs, please contact Walsworth. In the meantime, here is Eric Katz’s article:

The Role of Your Website in Your Integrated Content Marketing Strategy

I don’t know how many years you’ve been “surfing the web” (which was a hip thing to say back in the 1990s), but if you’re anything like me, you’ve witnessed some astounding innovation in website design and technology.

In the early days, companies set up websites as a virtual brochure – their location, their phone number and maybe an overview of their products and services. And after setting up their website, they pretty much left it alone. After all, websites were difficult to set up, and updates weren’t much easier, so the content was typically static for as long as a company could bear to forgo expensive changes.

The Role of Social Media in Your Integrated Content Marketing Strategy

Social media has taken the world by storm, and with good reason. It’s a boon for businesses because it facilitates easy and frequent communication with a customer base that’s constantly connected.
