Calling all inbound marketers: It'll probably make your stomachs turn a bit, too. In a nutshell, the campaign is a push to encourage small businesses to send more direct mail (AKA junk mail), in an attempt to boost the suffering U.S. Postal Service's revenue stream by 'hundreds of millions of dollars.'
