Postmasters, managers and customer services supervisors will soon receive a Business Connect kit that offers strategies for promoting USPS products and services to small businesses.
The U.S. Small Business Administration usually celebrates the first week of May as National Small Business week, and Post Offices around the nation hold Grow Your Business Day events throughout the spring leading up to that week.
“Now that the holidays are over, this is the perfect time to have conversations with small businesses in our communities,” said Mary Anderson, small-business engagement director at USPS headquarters.
The kits, which are expected to be mailed around Feb. 10, include a guide for hosting a successful Grow Your Business Day event; a guide for showcasing USPS shipping and mailing services; and virtual and physical flyers and invitational postcards, among other helpful items.
Customer services supervisors will receive a postcard with instructions on how to order their own kit from the Material Distribution Center. The order number is SKU#21Q2BCKIT.
