MailLift handwrites letters for you
Most successful sales and marketing professionals make it to the top because of their attention to detail, standing out for taking extra care of their clients. In the early days, handwritten letters are a common part of paving the path toward success, but when that success catches up to you, you no longer have time to write these thoughtful letters – maybe you email, maybe you pass it off to a team of assistants, but it’s not likely you anymore.
Enter MailLift, a service that sends handwritten letters through the postal service, post marked near you, integrated right into your CRM or help desk software, offering templates or blank slates.
Sure, letter writing services exist, but they are usually limited to a standard letter sent thanking a client for visiting, but don’t typically allow you to continue handwritten letters throughout the sales process and after, giving little impact on your sales pipeline other than a single feel-good moment.
MailLift works by simply drafting or dictating a letter on the site, mobile app, or from within Salesforce (and an increasing number of CRM or help desk programs), setting up recurring letters, event-based letters, or one-off letters. You choose a handwriting style, hit submit, and letters are handwritten – by retired teachers, no less and every letter is photographed so you can see the final result.
