  3. Yeah mail marketing is really just a waste of
    money. And I do wonder how much they invest on those envelops. Aside from
    creating value for their prospects, they should also create value for their own
    company. Instead of allotting capital for mail marketing, it would be better if
    they invest the money on a marketing strategy that will improve their company’s
    reputation and service. A company has to build its name and establish its
    quality service before it invests in mail marketing. Now tell me, wouldn’t you
    be happy to open a letter from a prominent company? Wouldn’t you be intrigued
    about what’s in it? Of course, the letter should have an appealing tag line outside
    the envelop to boost the interest of the receiver. It should also contain the
    correct name of the recipient.
