How did the USPS employee lead programs break their latest barrier — $7 billion in estimated annualized revenue?
Through the dedication of postal workers, of course.
Here are three examples of employees who recently participated in these programs:
• El Dorado, AR, Postmaster Renee Baxley worked with a children’s clothing company to help meet its shipping requirements. The company took an interest in Priority Mail service and worked with the local USPS sales team to set up an account. This sale generated an estimated $88,000 in annual revenue.
• Temple, TX, Retail Associate Daniel Trevino submitted a lead on behalf of a local restaurant, whose owners then received a presentation about the Every Door Direct Mail program from a USPS business development specialist. The owners were so impressed, they agreed to send a mailing with 100,000 pieces.
• Lakewood, OH, Letter Carrier Steven Sullenberger took note of a rapidly growing clothing company on his route and asked the owner if a USPS sales representative could contact him about his business shipping needs. This led to a sale that generated $121,440 in annualized revenue for USPS.
The Postal Service wants all employees to participate in lead programs, which include Business Connect, Clerks Care, Rural Reach, Customer Connect, Submit a Lead and the Mail Handlers Lead Program.
