Published: Tuesday, May 6, 2014 9:25 p.m. CST

MORRIS The United States Postal Service invites small businesses to attend a “Grow Your Business Day” workshop that will help entrepreneurs and proprietors to promote their businesses using direct mail, without the cost of mailing lists or permits.

The new “Every Door Direct” service is the first in a series of U.S. Postal Service initiatives to make growing a business with the mail more efficient and affordable, according to a news release from the postal service.

In a one-hour presentation, postal experts will show how easy it is to select a campaign message, target an audience and prepare “Every Door Direct” mailings. Information will be provided on how to do it yourself or using mailing house vendors. Attendees will also learn about the postal service’s new Direct Mail Hub, a website that has simple, cost-effective ways to tap into the marketing advantages of direct mail.

An “Every Door Direct” workshop will be held at Morris City Hall, 700 N. Division St., Morris, at 10 a.m. May 16. Register by emailing eddmrsvpcid@usps.gov.
