Maximising potential of a despatch note 

Do not underestimate the versatility of the despatch note…

Despatch notes can help make picking and despatching orders easier, render returns procedures simpler, reassure quality and service, increase sales and data capture, promote brand awareness and cross sell products.

Hints and tips to make the most of your despatch notes:

  • Make your returns procedure simple – This can be done by integrating a returns label – your consumers will be more likely to place future orders if they know that it is hassle-free to send anything back.
  • Be economical – Try to be environmentally friendly by using recycled paper – many customers see this as a good incentive to purchase.
  • Get creative with your forms – You could use the reverse side of your forms, to carry out a customer survey or returns satisfaction questionnaire – think outside the confines of a single sheet!
  • A3 despatch notes give retailers the opportunity to cross sell their products – You could promote your top ten products or draw attention to some sale items?

Forms Plus can explain these pointers to you in more detail and help you get the best out of your despatch labels.
