In 2015, I began looking for a service that would print and mail one letter at a time at an inexpensive rate. Specifically, I would send thank you letters to sellers and private investors by printing them and mailing them myself, but I felt that there was a better way to do this.
There are many services that will send a large quantity of letters for your direct mail but to send just one letter, the few services I could find wanted at least $3 per letter.
I finally found LetterStream that would do it for less than $1 per letter. For each letter, you input the outgoing address, the return address (which is saved for you after the first time), and the document in pdf form to be mailed.
I create my thank you letters using a custom mail merge that allows me to just input a few values into a spreadsheet and a new thank you letter is ready to be sent out.
I only do a few of these letters a month but still should delegate it to an assistant. I have the training video ready using Screencastify (I’ll talk more about this in a future post) but just need to do it. Maybe this post will be just the right incentive for me to delegate this task and hopefully it will motivate you to delegate more as well.
