Thank you Natasha, and remember to view our video on how we get started with each customer: http://mailquotes.com/thinking-of-running-a-direct-mail-campaign
Kevin from Direct Mail Specialist was so helpful in giving us advice to better our direct mail campaign and make it more successful! The Post cards they sent out for us looked excellent and the quality was great! We had a few hiccups, but he was willing and quick to fix them and get our campaign started quickly. We plan on using them again for our next campaigns and would definitely recommend them!Oct 2, 2018VerifiedDMS (3 Time Thumbtack Award Winner 2017;2018;2019)'s reply
Maddi, thank you for the very nice review. I don't know why our email systems didn't communicate with each other at first, but we did find a way to work around it and move forward. I can't wait to hear of your continued success.

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?In general, we start with communication through Thumbtack, then use emails. Before proceeding, we feel it is always good to have a phone conversation to go over all the details and options. Then we send an invoice that can be paid online. Once we receive payment, we put the project into production. Most jobs take 2 to 4 business days to complete (once a proof is approved). We are bonded and have an A Plus rating with the Better Business Bureau. We also send you USPS Proof of Delivery links, so you can verify that your mailer was delivered to your recipients as promised.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have over 33 years of experience in corporate marketing with two of the world's largest companies. My expertise in consumer packaged goods marketing helps to ensure that we never let a client run a campaign without a live test. If they don't want to conduct a test, we move forward with a plan that will optimize the results in light of the uncertainty. I also carefully select people for my team who I know will pay attention to details and bring their own experience to benefit our customers. Our fulfillment division is run by a former Amazonian who brings his Amazon expertise to every project.
