In the business world the definition is “advertising mail or mail used for marketing strategies of your business”. Moreover, this type of mail advertising is being used widely by small and medium companies who are trying to reach a specific targeted audience and expand their market. E-mail is another option where you could use bulk mail effectively, if you avoid your mail being labeled as spam. Nevertheless, this advertising technique has proven to enhance market shares and audience turnover through its benefits.

What postage services offer those people who sent mail in large quantities ( for advertising or other purposes) is lowered posting fees because some of the work like organizing mail in the mail house by ZIP code, is done by the sender ,thus saving time and money for the postal service.
