Small Business Services For U.S. Postal Service
Reading Time: 2 minutes

Residential customers may be annoyed by the oncoming reductions in service and continued troubles for the U.S. Postal Service. Sure, few of us rely on the mailbox as much as the inbox these days, but it’s still not fun to get bills late or miss out on that check you’ve been counting on.

For small businesses, though, it’s a bigger deal. Here at Direct Capital—and I suspect at your offices—an awful lot of mail comes through on a regular basis, a lot of it important. How do you get around a reduction of service?

Easy. Go online.

How The Internet Can Save Your Business Time And Money

Traditionally, you’ve had to run your packages to the post office. You’ve had to slap stamps on those letters and wrestle those bill stubs back into envelopes. It’s not exactly the most time-consuming, money-draining activity on the planet, but it’s nobody’s idea of a good time.

If you’re lucky, you have someone in-house who can take care of these things. But the point is this: In today’s digital age, even your mail can be (mostly) handled online.

For example, you can ship a package. Or, if you’re so inclined, track your mail. Or even calculate the price of your business mailings online. No longer will you be the guy in line, and by doing so, you also lessen the load on the Postal Service’s suddenly strapped workforce.

It will save you a little money and a lot of time. At the end of the day, that’s the best way to come out of this new era of the U.S. Postal Service a winner.
