PIA voices concern over new US Postal Service online Direct Mail Hub

with one comment

In an interview with PrintWeek, Makin said, “We’re not in a position to speculate on what the rationale is behind this at USPS. But we just feel that as an organization that is essentially a monopoly, it should not be directing business to a select vendor list.”

Lisa Note:  In agreement – the USPS should NOT be directing business to a select vendor list.  Especially when you have to PAY to be on the list.  The USPS is implying approval of any company on the list, without doing any due diligence on those companies.

  1. I am in Raleigh NC, where the Direct Mail Hub was supposedly test marketed. I was on the list and was on the list previously when I paid for it.
    The USPS effort was less than useless. The cards they sent out were bland and confusing…no other support. In fact, the local PCC wanted to know something, but couldn’t find anybody who knew about the program.
    I applaud the Post Office’s effort to try to drum up direct mail marketing. But this effort was really half-baked and ineffective.
