Consulting Services

They say that if you put a frog in cold water, then gradually bring it to a boil, the poor frog will never realize it’s slowly being cooked

…until it’s too late.

Sometimes mailers find themselves in that same hot water, with the same result.

Are you tired of getting cooked?

For example:

  • Overlooked Workshare discounts
  • Not understanding or implementing data management best practices
  • Failing to use optimal address hygiene methods
  • Paying too much for transportation services
  • Paying too much for presort services for residual mail
  • Making easily-corrected errors in mail preparation
  • Penalties for exceeding USPS quality thresholds
  • Inefficient production flow
  • Not knowing how to effectively deal with the Postal Service

Do any of these sound familiar?

Mailers Hub has the solution: Mailers Hub Consulting Services.  We solve problems.

Mailers Hub experts can find and analyze the pain point, locate the undetected issues, and craft a solution… before you “get cooked”. It’s an affordable ounce of prevention.

Companies have expertise in their primary line of business, but those with in-house mail production or receiving operations, or that do their own address file maintenance, may not be experts in those “back-office” activities. At Mailers Hub, our expertise is MAIL – from design through production – including related functions like list management, address hygiene, and postal compliance. 

Our job is to examine every aspect of your mailing operation and recommend the improvements that will get it running as efficiently as possible, including:

  • Database Review: Getting your message to the intended recipient starts with having a correct, complete, and deliverable address. We examine not only your address file, but how its contents are managed, from collection, through correction, to placement on the outgoing mailpiece.
  • Mail Production: Producing finished mail can be a sore spot of cost and inefficiency. We review all steps of mail production to optimize workflow, eliminate extra steps, and ensure your mailings get into the mailstream as quickly and cost-effectively as possible.
  • Scorecard Monitoring: You need to know how well your mail met postal standards – before it costs you. We monitor your Mailer Scorecard to detect errors reported by the USPS, act to re-mediate their causes, and ensure mistakes happen only once.
  • Returns: People move, but making sure your messages still reach them requires ongoing procedures and management. We review your practices for handling returned mail and address list maintenance to ensure that future mailings go to the right address, minimizing costs and delays.
