What’s in the name?
The PostBox was one of the foremost modes of communication going all the way back to the 16th Century. The PostBox was for the masses and can be used by one and all and is the most convenient and cost efficient form of sending a message across seven seas and continents.
We couldn’t think of a more apt name than Postboxcommunication since that’s what we do… we communicate… in any mode, form, language or gesture… it’s the only thing which brings the world together and can make or break a relationship… a company… or a brand… knowing how and what to communicate… is the most integral part of any brand.
We do the same… by helping brands and companies to communicate via an online medium or through their corporate branding and marketing… Whether the brand requires to shout out loud online, whisper or stay silent (but noticed)… we help them get established, connected and always visible.
Our parent company is Private Limited and known as Raincheck Networks which is symbolic of us doing anything you need us to do… if not now, definitely when we’ve mastered your requirements.

Why we do it?
It’s who we are… it’s us… social media being our blood and advertising our bones. We cant stop the blood flowing through us or live without bones to make us stop doing it.
Social Media, Online Branding & Advertising is our core for 4 simple reasons:
- We’re passionate and dedicated about it
- We have the expertise
- We’re excellent at it
- Which is why we love it!!!??
How we evolve?
Social Media is a platform where there’s something new every day. Research with lots of reading daily helps us gain knowledge and know-how. Social Media and advertising is not only a means to promote and showcase brands, it’s more of engaging and communicating with target audience and potential customers/clients. We’re constantly learning and following brands that we would love to work with and simultaneously, on what their competitors do to accordingly come up with a brand strategy we would like to offer them. With these basics, we have come a very long way in a short span of time and hopefully keep on with the momentum.
Social responsibility in social media
Honesty is the first chapter.
From very first day of our work we believe in executing with a humble, truthful and fruitful way. We believe in being ourselves instead pretending to be what we aren’t, which helps us to communicate with a client more precisely and develop trust which equals to a good long time relationship. Our initiative for this year is saving paper. We use lots of paper for designing, taking notes, etc… and make it a point to only use paper which organizations have discarded. Most multi-nationals don’t see the importance of paper and the cost it has to the company. What we do, is have a tie-up with a multi-national, where we take all their junk paper ever month… sit in our office 1 day a month and make books out of 1 side used paper.
Simultaneously, our office for the design house is made of mainly glass and white-board/Formica (including the tables and walls). All our ideation, thoughts, project details… the works… are all jotted down on these… it’s quite a fun thing…
Need of the hour
Whilst starting up with any new project or task it’s really crucial to understand their needs and making the clients understand the workings in brief. Normally, clients focus on only “hits” their brand will get; here it becomes important to make them understand that it’s necessary to reach the correct TG, understand, engage, and communicate with them rather than anyone and everyone. It’s like trying to sell a fairness cream to a foreigner in Goa who enjoys getting a tan. At the end of day “likes” and “hits” will automatically be generated.
This is what’s important when creating Social awareness for a brand and managing their accounts… “Knowing what they NEED before they WANT it.”
We learned the hard way
“Slow but steady doesn’t always win the race… but it sure makes the turtle more favoured…”
We started fast and have grown even faster… Though we’re situated only in Mumbai (growing not so slowly), we have an international clientele as well. We believe that expansion is vital, but at same time proper planning, strategizing and having a firm, rock-solid foundation is essential. We’ve reached a market level we want to… but are now going to slow down a bit and make our foundations solid.
We have been a part of this Internet & Mobile Application Development world for almost 10 years now and have learnt one major lesson… “The more honest, transparent and true you are towards your clients, the more you will succeed.”
Honesty and trust are keys to success. Our clients are our family.
Did we just share that?
This is something that makes us happy and proud more than anything else… it was funny at that point of time… but we loved it for what it made us realize as an organization.
We had an early morning meeting with a potential client and we were super excited. They we’re punctual (such a refreshing thing) and as always were offered the usual water, tea, coffee, biscuits… To our absolute pleasurable surprise… they grinned and asked for “Khaali Faafda ane Jalebi” seeing that our Creative Director and most of the employees were Gujarati as well.
Panic stricken, we ran helter-skelter to a famous shop and in 20 mins the entire office was enjoying the impromptu office breakfast moment of “Faafda ane Jalebi”.
We absolutely loved how our clients, without even working with us, felt comfortable and at home in the family circle. There were no formalities, and that’s something we are so proud of and love them for even more. We hope all our clients feel the same!!!
P.S.: “Faafda ane Jalebi” is now our breakfast meeting staple.

Industry as we foresee
Social Media and Advertising are on a roll and never going to stop… it’s a dynamic, future means of communications. Every sector needs it and has accepted it. Without ones presence in a Social Media form… a company’s Brand Image seems bleak.
Next big thing which might give Social Media Marketing a run for its money, is for sure, mobile marketing and gaming which we’ve already started with.
