Stop Making Those Silly Business Mistakes

I am an absolute shopaholic. I spend a lot of time patronizing literally every type of business under the sun. As an avid consumer, I believe that I have advice that I can give businesses that can help them become more successful and serve there customers better. Even though I am the only one working on this blog, much of what I write comes from endless conversations with friends and family members who have experienced frustrations when patronizing businesses, big and small. My name is Alice Stark and I hope you enjoy the journey that we will be going on together!

5 Reasons Your Small Business Needs A Mail Service

Business Blog

One challenge for small home-based businesses is receiving mail packages. Giving out your home address for business purposes doesn't give your potential clients the best professional image. There are also privacy issues because of the many delivery persons who will be knocking at your door. Using a mail service is a more palatable option. This service plays the role of a middleman; they take your packages on your behalf and forward them to you. There are several advantages to this arrangement:

1. Get A Commercial Address

People are increasingly careful when doing online transactions, and a home address is usually a concern for many people. A mail forwarding service gives you a real physical address on a real street. These services can also allow you to give the impression of a bigger company with addresses in different cities.

2. Get Your Mail More Quickly

Mail services can deliver letters and small packages within the same day that they receive them. Storage space also prevents undeliverable mail from piling up in your home when you're away on vacation or moving households.

3. Maintaining Home Privacy

Having numerous mail packages delivered to your home can disturb your family's privacy. Felonious characters can also take advantage of the increased traffic to plan crime against you. A mail service puts distance between you and the outside world. You can opt to pick up packages or have them delivered to your home by one provider, which maintains your home's privacy.

4. Mail Package Security

Your packages are at risk when left at your doorstep or when the mailbox is overfilled. Fortunately, when you use a mail service, your packages can be stored at their facilities until the time is right to deliver them.

You'll also get reports on orders every few days with shipment details such as tracking numbers, package size, etc. You will always know when a package arrives and when you can go pick it up.

5. Convenience

Are you irritated by spam and junk mail? You can give the mail forwarding service a list of packages you consider urgent, and another list of junk. This can save you time and effort while speeding up the delivery to your doorstep.

Best of all, your mail will be safe when you are away. The mail forwarding service receives and holds your mail when you are away on vacation. You only have to give notification of when and how long you will be away.

Is your home address holding back your business prospects? Talk to a mail service to set up a convenient way of getting your packages.
