Track Direct Mail Portal in Works

We are working feverishly to provide a direct mail tracking portal site sole and separate from the CSG Direct website. This will provide other mailers an opportunity to track direct mail.

Track Direct Mail Confirm system development

I’ll keep you up to date as we near completion but much of what we are doing there will remain secret until we roll out the program.  If you have ideas or suggestions on what you would like included, just contact me.

More Media Coverage of our Bulk Mail Direct Mail Tracking

Here is a new link to more of the media coverage surrounding our new direct mail tracking systems: http://www.nnbw.biz/ArticleRead.aspx?storyID=12294

The true beauty of being able to hold direct mail more accountable is really sinking in with our new inventions!

I would like to remind everyone that this is just ONE thing that we have built that we are talking about today.  We have a large collection of tools and services we have built before this that no one else has either.

I know, this is a big one!

However, you may just very well be shocked by what we have coming next.
It’s a whopper too.

It takes time to roll out inventions in our industry, but believe me when I say our pipeline is full of them and they will continue to see daylight over the coming months and years.

Trackmymail.com is Mocking Us

Trackmymail.com placed a new ad this month that directly mocked us and our reporting system. To their credit, I thought this was hilarious. Here is the ad. I love all the nuances, actually. I love the mocking of our mapped reports as well as the dice and cards since we are in the gambling state of Nevada.

There are really very few players on the frontline of direct mail tracking and only two of us have time-tested tracking and reporting systems, so it is very obvious when they make fun of someone who they are talking about. They got their first taste of our product at the Chicago Graph Expo show this year when Postalsoft was showing our product at their booth as a developing add-on for Desktop Mailer software customers.
(we are Desktop Mailer distributors and users – great stuff!)

Now, Trackmymail.com has been around the longest – most of us know that. We are the young new team on the block that feels that this can be done better and cheaper.  I mean, they charge for their service and our services are often bundled in for free. They need you to pay on every mailing for their business model to work.

Their service better be darn good to compete with free.  How much do you want to pay?

The internet is revolutionizing industries – including our own. Within 5 years these services will be free everywhere you look, so we decided to start at free right now.  Why not lead the way?

So as their pay service becomes obsolete over time, we will probably hear a lot from Trackmymail as they try to convince everyone that they would be better off paying for their service as opposed to receiving free services. However, our entire industry is run and developed by data geeks like us here at CSG Direct, Inc.  Do they really think they can get us to pay for database work?

Our systems collect and display the data and YOU can export it and use it any way you like. That’s the age we live in and that is how our system works – you decide how much to pay.

Americas First Public US Mail Tracking Systems

In 2008 US Mail Tracking for the masses became possible. We will be adding lots of tools for this in 2009 but let’s remember 2008 for this astounding innovation:

Track Direct Mail

Direct Mail Evolves on your iPhone or iPad

CSG Direct MailCSG Direct Mail continues to evolve direct mail into the service it was always meant to be.  At CSG, Direct Mail is responsive, accountable, trackable and now it is also completely mobile. CSG Direct Mail is now available in the iTunes App Store.iTunes App      Store

We put all our CSG Direct Mail Tracking tools on the iPhone. CSG Direct Mail for iPhone was released into the iTunes App Store May 7th 2010. You can now track every aspect of your direct mail projects with DIRECT MAIL by CSG Direct, Inc.

Track Your Projects:Live Project   Tracking
The #1 question in the direct mail industry is “Did my mailing going out”, so in 1999 CSG Direct built the very 1st direct mail project portal. Our portal has been modernized many times and new services continue to be added. Now available on your iPhone and iPad.

In our direct mail portal you have always had LIVE tracking of every project from start to finish. Then as each project is delivered to the post office you get an automated notice to let you know. You always know when it is expected to mail and what steps are left, Folding, Inserting, Addressing and more.  Every Step is tracked.  You get Live Access to all this information.

Track Your Individual Direct Mail Pieces:
That’s right!  Direct Mail has Evolved at CSG Direct, Inc.
After we complete your direct mailing and take your mailing to the US Postal Service, you can track the movement of your mail pieces en route to their individual destinations.

In 2008 and 2009 we invented a whole series of tools, widgets, maps and reports around the new Track Your   Direct Mail PiecesIMB barcodes and the USPS Confirm services in order to let our customers track individual mail pieces. This innovation was long overdue.

This was our DIRECT MAIL DREAM and we made it a reality!

These newest innovations are built on our proprietary Direct Mail Tracking Systems. Now available for iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

Now you can easily tell when pieces are arriving in-homes and have all your direct mail project information with you when you need it most.

Check on your projects in your marketing meetings when you are called on. No need to look things up after the meeting and look unprepared while in the meetings. Show people you run the direct mail and you have your fingers on the pulse at all times with CSG Direct Mail for your Smartphone.

With our US Mail Tracking innovations we have millions of records and we have lots of unique ways we plan to give you this data. I have goosebumps on what is still coming.  Get CSG Direct Mail for your iPhone so you don’t miss out on our next planned updates too.

We continue to redefine the Direct Mailing industry!
We are The Greatest Value in Direct Mail

(More Smartphones coming soon)

US Mail Tracking is now Free with Every Mailing

You asked for it and at CSG Direct you get it. Now with every single mailing you do, First-Class or Standard mail postage; US Mail Tracking is included at no additional costs.

What that means to you is you can now lookup and track every mailpiece you send and see where it is in the Postal Service at any time, day or night, 24/7.  Just like Fedex and UPS!!

You see, this is such a new service that so very few people in the country have this opportunity to track bulk mail at all.  Those people that do are paying fees and going through 3rd-party vendors to come even close.  So, only CSG Direct customers get this NATIONWIDE!! Fortunately we process direct mail for customers all over the USA so everyone can try this.

Have you ever been told by a mailshop “It’s in the mail” only to get the feeling it really never was?  This is not possible at CSG Direct and we are probably the most accountable direct mailing services company in the country.  Track your print and mail project as it happens through our website, get an email notice as it goes to the Bulk Mail center, then track the pieces as they travel to your customers.

You deserve this kind of honest, hardworking and accountable Direct Marketing and it is only available at CSG Direct, Inc.

US Mail Tracking Systems Tracked 15 Million Pieces of Direct Mail

Our proprietary US Mail Tracking systems have successfully tracked over 15 million pieces of direct mail advertising through the US mailstream online, in real time. That’s 15 million pieces followed across the country individually, like you do packages. Using our new proprietary system, coupled with the USPS’s new Intelligent Mail Barcodes, a business can finally track the progress of its mail campaign using its own customer ID or account number.

US Mail Tracking

Some of the system’s more popular features are the interactive reports as each piece crosses the country. This has been the dream in direct mail for decades and it’s finally a reality! Bulk mail can now be tracked just like more expensive alternatives such as UPS and FedEx.

This new system was originally built as an addon to our proprietary online project tracking system.  We continue to redefine the mailing services industry! Now that our newest system has proven itself operational I feel we truly have proven ourselves to be “the greatest value in direct mail”.

Additional tools and applications are being built around this new system to make this new technology accessible for every direct mail customer in America. This new product’s uses seem endless. The technology allows database-marketing companies another level of strategy to reduce postage, find lost mail and help customers that may experience problems with the nation’s mail stream. CSG Direct has already starting using these tools to track mail responses and customer interaction as well.
