Social Media for your Business

Use social media to interact with customers and build a community. It will help you develop your brand’s tone of voice and make you more familiar to potential customers. A few ways to develop social media to drive sales is by offering exclusive content. Make your content share-worthy this can be done via imagery or simple wording and incentives for things such as offers, promotions and new campaigns.  The more share worthy your content is the more potential customers it will reach.


Key Online Business Drivers

As well as engaging into social media its important you don’t forget the fundamentals of ensuring online business growth such as supply & demand, website functionality, customer services and delivery service.

Whether you offer customers next day delivery or 2-3 day delivery it’s integral to offer them a cheap & reliable service.

 



Heavy Snowfall may cause Service Delays

clock January 18, 2013 05:22 by author Parcel Pete

Hi All! Its Parcel Pete here, the UK this morning has woken up to a thick blanket of snow. Some roads are impassable, trains have been cancelled and some airports closed as what is set to be the heaviest snowfall of winter.

Wales, the West Country, eastern England, the North East of England and Scotland were the worst-hit areas this morning - with the band of severe weather set to spread across the country.

Drivers in Wales were facing major problems, with the M4 closed between Bridgend at junction 36 and Pyle at junction 37.

Gritters have been out in force, and the Highways Agency has issued an amber alert, advising motorists to take extra care and check weather forecasts before they travel.

Due to these severe weather conditions and road closures some parcel deliveries and collections may be delayed.

We’ll be keeping a close eye on the weather conditions and will be updating you all via our social media pages.

More information on affected areas can be here: BBC UK Snow

To everyone travelling in the snow please be safe and extra vigilant!

Parcel Delivery at Your Fingertips

clock August 14, 2012 07:12 by author Parcel Pete

There are times when we need an important parcel delivered, but we cannot rely on traditional mail services.

Simply enter your details online, and our drivers will come to your home or office to collect your parcel for next day delivery. These services are also extremely affordable, from only £4.99 +VAT.

Unlike the postal service, which delivers all parcels in much the same way, ipostparcels understand that every package is different. We are able to cater the delivery to meet your exact needs, ensure that fragile items are handled correctly and even advise you on how you can box, wrap and package your parcels most effectively to prevent breakages.

Parcel Delivery Without Getting Out Of Your Pyjamas

The idea behind ipostparcels is pretty simple. Sometimes one of the most influential reasons behind not posting mum’s birthday present or not getting your latest eBay sells out quickly is nothing more than simple circumstance. It’s too cold outside to walk to the Post Office, it’s inconvenient to cart parcels on the commute in time for a lunchtime dash to the courier, or maybe it’s just your day off and there’s a crime thriller marathon on telly!

Cheap Parcel Delivery

ipostparcels.com offers cheap parcel delivery right from your door. No more queuing at the Post Office, no complicated forms to fill in, and now you don’t even have to have a printer! Just select our “Bring me Labels” service and our driver will bring your labels with him.

Our clients spoke, we listened and the message was clear. You want to be able to fill out details simply (i.e. online while you enjoy a cup of tea), know you’ve accessed all the same great services as the rest of our network (e.g. guaranteed next day delivery) and hand over parcels on your front doorstep (in your favourite pyjamas!) to one of our parcel collection pros (they’re lovely folks!)
So go on, just book your parcel delivery online and wait for our super collection staff to pick it up!



Sending parcels the easy way

clock July 16, 2012 11:38 by author Parcel Pete

Whether you are looking to send the odd parcel for or need to make frequent deliveries as part of your business, using our online parcel collection and delivery service here at ipostparcels.com makes perfect sense.

Our services are aimed at anyone who is looking for a cost-effective, straightforward way to send a parcel without leaving their home or office. All you need to do to take advantage of our invaluable service is go online, order a pick-up time to suit you, and then choose from a range of delivery options for a tracked parcel delivery service anywhere in the UK. Unlike most other couriers and mail providers, we offer you four different time slots for collection: a three-hour window, morning, afternoon or all day. Furthermore, you can also request a parcel be left in a 'safe place' if you will be away from home or work. To make things even easier we offer a service to bring your printed parcel labels to you!

Our ipostparcels parcel delivery service prices are either comparable with Royal Mail parcel drop-off prices or cheaper with the added benefit of next day delivery as standard. Payment can be made by credit or debit card using a secure service or by Paypal. Prices start from as little as £3.99 +VAT for collected next day delivery tracked and signed-for parcels. However, if you are near to one of our 55 UK depots you can save even more money by dropping off your parcels in person.

So forget about carting parcels to the Post Office on your lunch break or waiting around all day for your parcel to be collected – just come to us and send your parcels the easy way!
