To sell via the post you need three things. 

First you need a mailing list - this can be researched by yourself or bought in from an outside supplier. Often, we can help you source this list.

Second you need a fulfilment and despatch system - there are significant discounts available with bulk postal mailings, first by using a Royal Mail account (rather than buying stamps or having a franking machine) and second by sorting the mail for Royal Mail and in return getting a sizeable discount. You will also need a way of getting the items into envelopes - something that mailing fulfilment companies have. We can put you in touch with a company and even get a quote for your mailing on your behalf.

Third you need a way of getting your post read - most postal material is opened and glanced at, but most of it is then thrown away within moments.   But if you write in a particular way you are much more likely to get your material read. Again, we can help with this, if you wish.

Finally there is a variant system for postal mailings to schools known as a “shared mailing”. The average shared mailing costs around 20% of the solo mailing price.

Organise your mailing through Schools.co.uk and benefit from a free email send to a list of your choice.
