Smart Ways to Save Money on Postage-A New White Paper from Neopost

Neopost's white paper explains how businesses can save money on postage

ROMFORD, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - May 15, 2013) - Since April 2008 the price of a First Class stamp has increased by 67% and a Second Class stamp by 85%. As a comparison over the same period the price of a litre of unleaded petrol has risen by 30%, from 108p in April 2008 to 139p in March 2013.

Such a big increase in the cost of a stamp is a blow for small businesses already struggling to control costs and maintain profitability in a flat economy.

For many small businesses, postage is an essential and unavoidable cost. In an age of smartphones and social networks, many still rely on printed invoices to collect money from customers; and physical mail remains an effective way to generate new business and build stronger relationships with customers.

Royal Mail's April tariff change maintains a significant discount for franking machine users. After five years of smaller price increases for metered mail, there is still a big difference between the cost of a frank and stamp - franking is 22% cheaper for a First Class Letter (compared to 6% in 2008) and 34% cheaper for a Second Class Letter (compared to 11% in 2008).

These discounts are so great you will save money if you send just six letters a day - perhaps even fewer if you take into account the cost of over-stamping.

Containing practical advice from postage experts, Neopost's new white paper is ideal for growing businesses that are looking to improve the cost-effectiveness of their postal activities and covers the following:
