Use Our Omni-channel Distribution to Capitalize on the $9 Trillion e-Commerce Market
Today, smart retail marketers are acutely aware of the power and revenue potential of e-commerce with online sales estimated at 9.09 trillion in 2019.

In addition to e-commerce DTC, QPSI performs direct mail sampling for retailers who want to increase product exposure while reducing purchasing pressure.
QPSI welcomes and is happy to assist beginning, established, and transitioning DTC marketers. For years, we’ve offered QPSI omnichannel DTC distribution as a value-added service to our core contract packaging services business. We assist when DTC fits customer needs and our capabilities to fulfill and sustain our promise to provide pure performance packaging and excellence end-to-end.
Direct Mail Sampling and DTC
In addition to e-commerce DTC, QPSI performs direct mail sampling for retailers who want to leverage this long-time, highly successful marketing technique. It is recognized as a powerful motivator for trying a brand-new product or getting consumers to switch brands. Consider three primary benefits of Direct Mail Sampling:
Direct Mail Sampling increases exposure to products while reducing purchasing pressure. By delivering the product directly to consumers’ homes, customers can get a direct product experience for FREE!
According to the direct mail experts at SC360, “Direct Mail sampling is one of the most enticing ways to garner brand awareness and boost conversions.”
Direct mail sampling offers easy-tracking capabilities making it simple for retail marketers to know when the sample arrived. Again, SC360 notes that “Retailers can consider leveraging this data to generate an omni-channel campaign that includes triggered digital marketing touches such as a well-timed feedback request with direct links to the retailer’s website and social channels.”
Sampling can boost brand loyalty. You can put the secrets of confirmation bias to work by mailing samples to existing consumers. You may be able to convert loyal customers into brand advocates.
