Snail mail is just another tool a Jedi uses #jba flip.it/01CzC
Amazon Inc. has a secret partnership with the USPS. Amazon + USPS equals = “USPS Innovations”. They deliver on Sundays
eBay Inc in San Jose has a special partnership with the US postal service. They allow eBay sellers deep discounts, include tracking numbers and print postage on any printer.
Now, you as a baby entrepreneur can use the USA postal service like a Jedi knight uses a light sabre. You as a pre entrepreneur can use stamps like an athlete uses a dumbbell.
As the primary curator of ENGR145, I can give you my expert testimony that snail mail works and that using a sequence of 24, 49c stamps works super well. The net venture capital effects that aren’t understood by your average YC potential.

Skip the $599.95 cost and google, “How to do what Duck9 does for 599.95 without having to pay Duck9 or Larry Chiang 599.95”. You costs drop to below $20.
Heck. You can sell the 599.95 product at a price greater than your cost…, but that is a different blog post
