    When Response Rates, Average Gift & Speed of Mailing Matter

    As a public television membership professional, you may plan one to three years in advance.  Some direct marketing services seek advance commitments that seem almost as long.  Times change.  Topics of high interest to your members change.  When you've committed three, six, or twelve months in advance of a special, additional gift direct mail campaign, you may be missing opportunities.

    Normally, TeamSoper works with its clients on an annual direct mail plan. Occasionally, a client calls needing a mailing far more quickly. TeamSoper's quickest turnaround yet? Just twenty-three (23) calendar days elapsed between a TeamSoper client's initial phone call and dropping the packages into the USPS mail stream.  And yes, we can truck your mailing to the nearest BMC (Bulk Mail Center), further speeding its delivery to your viewers and members.

    Chet Tomczyk, President & CEO, WTVP / Peoria described his experience with TeamSoper:  "Copy and art for our fiscal year-end additional gift appeal were completed in two days and quickly approved. A total of only twenty-three (23) days elapsed between my initial phone call to you and learning that our letters were in the mail stream and on their way to WTVP's members.  I don 't know of any other firm that could have met and exceeded our "impossible timeline." The results were well above our expectations, and our fiscal year was able to end successfully."
