Celina, TX (PRWEB) August 12, 2009
Business owner is deeply saddened by announcement of upcoming postal office closings, especially after recently discovering what an efficient and cost-effective tool the U.S. Postal Service is to their business. During these difficult economic times, small businesses in particular are carefully managing their expenses in hopes of staying in business.
It's a difficult balancing act to make sure businesses are keeping customers satisfied with reliable, on-time delivery of their orders, while providing that exceptional service cost-effectively. Dead Sea Spa Care, a Texas-based company that manufactures Dead Sea skincare products and sells the Egyptian Goddess patented nail buffer, recently discovered a way to reduce their shipping costs in half by shipping their wholesale and retail orders with the U.S. Postal Service.
"We had been loyal Fed-Ex customers for years because ensuring our customers received their products in perfect condition, in a timely manner was top priority for our company," said Edith Torkiya, V.P. Marketing/Sales, Dead Sea Spa Care & Egyptian Goddess. "After much insistence from the Celina Post Office Manager, we started shipping with the post office, and discovered our customers got their packages on time and for half of the shipping costs." Because of increased competition in all businesses sectors, and limited advertising efforts on behalf of the U.S. Postal Office, most business owners are not even aware that they can obtain free shipping boxes for all their orders and that there are flat rate shipping options which really cut back on costs.
People may be apprehensive about ordering products online, but their fears are eased when they receive a tracking number with their order. "One of the main reasons we initially hesitated to switch our shipping is because we required tracking numbers for all orders," said Torkiya. "There are several software programs available online such as Endicia, which enable you to pay and print your labels from the comfort of your office, and it automatically generates a tracking number for both First Class and Priority shipments--even more options than if you were going to the post office to pay for postage." Although there is already a daily postal delivery being made to offices, including home-based offices, customers can set up a free guaranteed special pick-up by the post office, and they will pick up all pre-paid domestic/international packages. "Best of all," said Torkiya, "you can order online thru the U.S. Postal Service website FREE shipping boxes, which are delivered to your office or home. This alone has been a huge cost savings for us."
Relying on more than one shipping company is more typical these days. "We have no complaints about our service with Fed-Ex, in fact, we will continue to use them for shipments weighing more than 15 pounds because you can't beat their rates for larger packages," Torkiya added. "It saddens me to hear that so many postal offices will be closing, and perhaps they wouldn't be if more businesses like our own knew what a reliable and cost-effective partner the post office can be to your business."
DeadSeaSpaCare.com is a Texas-based company offering affordable, luxury skincare products made with minerals from the Dead Sea. In addition, Dead Sea Spa Care exclusively sells the Egyptian Goddess patented nail buffer, which helps bring out the natural shine of the nails in just seconds. Treating hair, skin and nails with products that cleanse, hydrate, and polish is not only necessary, but rewarding. Dead Sea Spa Care offers products to care of the body and mind using relaxing spa treatments, in the privacy of their own home, day or night.
Why have people been drawn to the minerals of the Dead Sea region for hundreds of years? Minerals are essential for the entire body. With age, the level of minerals in the body is depleted. Researchers have found that the body no longer produces minerals on its own, and must draw from an external source of supply. Minerals provide protection and strengthen cell membranes against dehydration and environmental hazards.
