Whether You’re Doing Inbound Marketing Or Demand Generation, This Should Get Your Attention
It’s called Informed Delivery™ and it’s a new service from our friends at the USPS. The way it works is participating consumers receive an email containing grayscale images of the outside of their household’s letter-sized mail pieces that will be arriving soon.
The U.S. Postal Service is calling this “an unprecedented opportunity to engage users through an integrated mail and digital marketing campaign that generates additional consumer impressions, interactions and insights.” I’m looking at this from both sides (their side and the direct marketer’s side), but I’m also looking at this from the consumer’s side. This might just be my opportunity to block all that unwanted junk mail.
