An administrative assistant’s tip has resulted in more than $52,000 in new estimated annualized revenue for the Postal Service.
Lila Lozano, assistant for the Dallas Postmaster, spoke with a woman who was interested in promoting her real estate business through direct marketing.
Lozano submitted the tip through Submit a Lead, a program for employees who are not eligible to participate in the Postal Service’s other lead-generation programs.
Anthony Sanchez, a Dallas District business development specialist, and James Allen, a senior field sales representative, contacted the customer, who agreed to an Every Door Direct Mail deal worth $52,250 in estimated annualized revenue.
Sales generated from Submit a Lead submissions count toward the USPS Power of One campaign to raise revenue through sales leads from employees.
The Small Business and Lead Generation Programs Blue page is tracking participation in Submit a Lead and other employee lead programs: Clerks Care, Customer Connect, Business Connect, Mail Handlers and Rural Reach.
“Lila’s action shows that all employees can help customers and contribute to the financial success of the Postal Service, no matter what type of job they do,” said Mary Anderson, small-business engagement director at USPS headquarters.
The Postal Service is encouraging as many employees as possible to submit at least one lead through any of its six lead programs by Sept. 30.
