MailLift: handwritten letter service for marketers

Marrying technology with old-fashioned, beloved handwritten letter, MailLift helps any marketer stand out extremely easily.



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.

MailLift accepted into 500 Startups program

This week, MailLift officially joins the next class at 500 Startups, one of the most prestigious accelerator programs in the nation, and for the next four months, the founders will move from Austin to Silicon Valley to participate, being offered $50,000 in funding, office space, and mentoring from elite business experts.

“We’re excited to see one of our most talented, emerging companies join a world-class program like 500 Startups,” said Joe Kirgues, co-founder of the accelerator MailLift went through prior to 500 Startups.

“We are very excited about the level of visibility, expertise and distribution a program like 500 Startups brings to MailLift,” said Daniel Jurek, co-founder and CTO of MailLift.
