The QR Code Promotion is Back & Ready for Some Football

QR Code ImageAs if summer vacations and fireworks aren’t enough, the Post Office is giving smart Marketers one more reason to love July.  They definately are giving you one more reason to mail a  BigMag MagMailer campaign this summer.      

Starting on July 1st, the USPS is bringing back their Mobile Barcode Promotion (QR Code promotion for those that don’t speak Postalese).   You can earn a 2% discount on your Standard Mail or 1st Class letters, flats and cards just by adding a QR to your mail piece.   This is similar to last year’s promotion, with some important changes that we want to make sure you know about ahead of time. 


Magnets & Popcorn – Our New Video Premiers Today

Move over Spielberg, Magnetic Attractions has a new video premiering this week called “Why Magnets Continue to Rock the Marketing World”.  It stars our own Bill Graham, and features two big stars in marketing and brand awareness – the magnet and refrigerator.   I’m sure the magnet’s 4-star performance will stick with you for quite awhile.

And because the world loves a good sequel, this video is just the first in a series from Magnetic Attractions.  In the coming months, we’ll premier the rest of the series showcasing the magnets’ star power.  It’s not the “Star Wars” saga, but then again our videos only lasts 2 minutes and are free.  Just click the link below to see our first video. Popcorn is optional.
