Burns Mailing & Printing, Inc. Paused From Our Work Today

October 6, 2017

As fall has arrived and it will start getting colder, I decided that we need to have one last cook out at work today.  We grilled hot dogs, had all the fixings to go with it and sat down as one company. I wanted it as an opportunity to thank my great team at Burns for all their hard work.  I have a team that works hard, appreciates our customers, knows the importance of getting our jobs out and giving quality work to our customers. Fall is our busiest season but we paused today to celebrate together as one team.

If you want to experience working with our great team at Burns Mailing & Printing, give me a call at 865 584-2265 or email me Phyllis Burns at phyllis@burnsmp.com.

Wishing all of you a Happy Fall.

Millennials And Direct Mail (With A Response Rate Of 5%)

September 25, 2017

Millennials range from ages 20 to 26

Millennials are in a category all their own. They were raised in the digital age and technology is second nature to them but that doesn’t mean that they don’t respond to traditional marketing methods such as direct mail. They are on the go, buying houses, renting apartments, buying cars and they are a force in the workplace.

What does all that have to do with direct mail?

Direct mail has continued to be a great source for marketing with a response rate of 5% as compared to digital marketing with a response rate of less than 1%.  I recommend to my customers that they do both direct mail and social media marketing.  Millennials are experiencing digital fatigue but they still spend a lot of time online, so use direct mail to guide them to your website or social media page and give them a reason to go to your page, such as an offer of something free such as consulting, free estimates, or a discount. The marketing landscape is always changing but direct mail remains as influential as ever, or more so.  When I started in the mailing business in the early 1990’s the response rate was 2-3% and now it is 5%.

At Burns Mailing & Printing, Inc. our consulting is FREE to our customers.  I just showed a non-profit how to save over $4000.00 in postage and all it took was sitting down and listening to what they had been doing and what we could do for their organizations. Call me, Phyllis Burns,  today for a FREE consultation 865 584-2265.  You may email me at phyllis@burnsmp.com for a free estimate.

 


Things I Brought Back From My Trip

September 13, 2017

I was blessed to spend the Labor Day weekend with my family at the lake in Winchester TN.  However I brought home a nasty bug and spend the next week at home sick.  Also another little nice surprise was that a huge limb had fallen out of one tree into another tree in my front yard. I had to have both trees removed and now my yard looks like some one was having dirt track trials in my yard.  I am not worried though because I have someone coming to  seed the yard  and all will OK.  It is a blessing to be with family any time that it is possible.

 


Boutique Mailer And Printer?

August 24, 2017

That is how I described Burns Mailing & Printing, Inc. to a local magazine today.  I for one, love going to boutique clothing stores, coffee shops, and especially bakeries. These boutiques specialize in giving specialized customer services that you don’t find with large big box stores.  They give you a unique experience and I think that is what we do best at Burns Mailing & Printing, Inc.  For our customers, we assist them with art files, design (if needed), free consultation and basically guide them from concept to the mail box. Since we offer printing (both digital and offset) and we are a direct mailing company their project moves from one knowledgeable department to the next and finally to the United States Post Office.

Seeing is believing, call me to schedule a tour of our company and see for your self what a boutique mailer and printer is all about. Phyllis Burns 865 584-2265.

 

 


What A Customer Is Saying About Burns Mailing & Printing

August 14, 2017

I have been so pleased to work with Burns Mailing & Printing! Their customer service is attentive with a small community feel. They are knowledgeable and helpful in every phase of the process! I walked into this process blind, but from the first design phase, to the final mail-outs, each member carried me through their area of expertise, and clearly explained and coached me through what I needed to know. Their collaborative efforts produced a beautiful brochure advertising our company’s coming events. Thank you, Phyllis, for assembling such a great team to work with! You made a dreaded process a joy!

Girls Trip To The Beach

August 7, 2017

I just got back to the office today after a week in Destin FL with my daughter Joy and granddaughter Kate.  It was a time of relaxing, hanging out at the beach and lots of good food.  There is something about being at the ocean that is calming, relaxing and good for the spirit. It certainly makes the long drive worth it.  Funny thing happened, I stopped at Durbin Farms in Alabama, a great place to get fresh produce and peaches.  I went into the cafe and heard someone call my name.  I turned around and there was one of my church friends and her sister.  They were going to Pensacola and they invited me to have lunch with them.  That was a nice treat and quite unexpected.  It really is a small world.

Coming back to work this morning was not too bad.  I had worked a couple of hours on Sunday so that I would not be absolutely slammed when I got to work this morning.  It is always good to see my work family.  I miss them when I am gone.
