The Grand Social Media Experiment. We learn by doing.




Raising postage rates while there is an easier, cheaper and environmentally positive alternative to all buyers seems to be a solution aimed  at the Post Office fueling their own current implosion.

Marketing 101, first day class, states never raise your price when your competitor has lower prices and e-banking and e-mail sure are cheaper.  So what’s their plan?   The only differential they have, for many people , is a safer way to do your banking vs cyberspace.  Is the Post Office planning on  putting a premium on a safer way to do your banking?

The Post Office lost me ,in part ,this christmas. I decided to send christmas cards via e-mail that had a great sax accompaniment and it was a $12.00  a year, all cards deal, so the’re  already losing people  like me at some rate, and the’re still raising rates?    For many of us it feels safer paying bills via the slo-mail but it’s the recession and economically or practicality-wise that is not looking like the better idea for another group of people including me right now.   So the question is, with the middle class disappearing, how many other people will tip-toe over to cyber-mailing with this postage increase  and what would that mean for the future of the Postal Office?  Will their solution cause further implosion?  I say yes. (what else can ya say?)  The Post Office  will continue again to lose more customers now.   I can see the Postal Office  trimming down workers while continuing to test the market with postage increases and transforming into something of a higher end service.

Is this another reflection of ‘the disappearing middle class’, just a victim of the technological revolution, or just a lack of innovative solutions?  Where else can  these guys go?   I have heard that  junk mail is their largest mailing  but already the corporate  trend  is e-advertising and  that could be considered a green trend, which would increase its popularity at some point if only by pressure.   So what am I missing here?  Anybody see something I don’t see?

Social media can be is  great way build perspective.

We're a class learning about the ins and outs of social media. We learn by doing.


  1. I think this might be a method used so they can cover some of the money that they are using to buy millions of rounds of ammo. Don’t call me a conspiracy theorist because the proof is in the pudding but the pudding is hidden just like the truth behind many things. By raising costs they can compensate for the purchases for ammunition. Why are they buying bulk ammo? Same reason the NSA is buying billions of rounds. Something big is going to happen in the future. Here is the official documentation of what I speak of.
