Personalization Can Truly Give Direct Mail Legs

October 17, 2018

Brand United states, “Personalization can give direct mail legs”, according to a collection of 30 direct mail statistics compiled by Compu-Mail. Brand United states that “adding a person’s name, full color and more sophisticated database information can increase the response rate by up to 500% vs not doing any of these things” per Canon Solutions America.

Targeting customers on a 1:1 level increases response rates up to 50% or more, per the Data & Marketing Association. (/DMA)

Brand United also states “Direct mail is a reliable workhorse, but it can be enhanced to become a thoroughbred.

I have been saying this all along but thought you might enjoy some other people’s opinion on personalization.  At Burns Mailing & Printing, we send out a lot of personalized mail.  We also have the only Neopost DS-1200 in the state of Tennessee, that can insert a personalized letter into a non-window envelope.

Call me today to find out cost on your personalized mail. 865 584-2265 or email me at phyllis@burnsmp.com.

Meeting New People Every Day

October 3, 2018

One of the pleasures of this job is that I get to meet new people everyday and to hear their stories. Yesterday was especially good because I went to Bridge Refugee Services and met a very special person, Drocella Mugorewera the Executive Director. It opened up a whole new prospective for me.  I guess I had not given a lot of thought about the difference between a refugee and an immigrant.  Refugees had fled for there lives from countries where had they stayed would have been killed.  Imagine arriving in a new country not knowing the language, having no job and probably with the clothes on their back.  That is where Bridge Refugee Services comes in.  They help the refugee get settled into housing, help getting a job, help learning English and so much more.  As I sat in the hallway waiting for the meeting, their was a video playing that was in several languages and it was explaining that in the US, it is illegal to hit your wife, mother, daughter or any other female.  The cultural differences are great and each refugee must learn to live in the US under our laws.  I got to hear Drocella’s personal story and was overwhelmed with what she had gone through.

Several churches in the area support Bridge Refugee Services and hopefully my church will soon be another to give a helping hand.

As with any non-profit, it takes money to provide all these services.  If you are interested in helping, you can go to their website to make a donation.

Hope I get to meet a lot more people with the compassion and caring that Drocella has for all people

Professional and Skilled Mailing Department at Burns Mailing & Printing

August 8, 2018

Recently I met one of my customers when I was coming out of the polling place to vote.  He was a candidate in the election and we had helped him with his campaign in the design department, printing department and mailing department.  He said “the reason that he like coming to Burns was that it was one stop and it was done and he did not have to worry about running all over town”.  By the way he won in the election.

Our mailing manager plays a big part in making each mailing a success.  The customers jobs move from one experienced department to the next and finally to the mail box.

Want to experience this for yourself?  Call Phyllis Burns at 865 584-2265 or email me, phyllis@burnsmp.com for a free estimate.
