In today’s “want it now” culture, it’s easy to see why snail mail has lost a lot of ground – 15.5 billion pieces in just four years. Instead, people are turning to the Internet. To stem the tide, the USPS recently unveiled the Informed Delivery feature. Each morning, participants of Informed Delivery receive an email or an in App notification with images of the mail they can expect that day. For the first time, consumers and businesses can access mail from any device connected to the Internet. This idea promises to ignite interest among those who’ve turned away from traditional mail. So far, 2.5 million people have joined Informed Delivery and more than 10,000 are signing up each day.
