There are only 25 days left until Christmas!
This leaves only 36,000 minutes to wish your clients and customers a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays or whatever message you choose to use! Instead of heading out to the stores and purchasing boxes of paper cards to be signed individually, this year we encourage you to send virtual Christmas cards. While this may sound like the easy way out, or for some businesses it may be one of their first steps into the digital world, but virtual Christmas cards are much more than an email. They reflect the way our world has and will continue to change.
NO POSTAL CHARGES
The most obvious perk of choosing e-cards is saving money on postage stamps. Sending cards throughout the city, province and across the country may seem a simple task, but with at least one stamp needed for every envelope, the cost can rise quickly. Save those pennies and invest them into giveaways for Facebook followers or a reward for your most loyal customer. There are much better places for business costs to go.
BOTH PERSONAL & MEASURABLE
Instead of buying five boxes of the same greeting card with a snowman scene on the front and the classic “Happy Holidays” inside, virtual Christmas cards allow you to personalize each email for the client it is going to. If you know one of your clients is Jewish, it is easy to wish them a Happy Hanukkah instead of a Merry Christmas – something they will appreciate and most definitely take note of. Once they are sent, virtual Christmas cards are measurable and you will be able to keep the data to analyze year after year.
SAVE TIME & PAPER
Forget having a signature stamp made or setting aside hours to sign your name over and over again for each card, with virtual Christmas cards you can type a different and specific note to each client and customer within moments. Your time is valuable and now it can be spent on wrapping things up before the holiday break. Not only do e-cards save you time, but they save paper as well! This method is environmentally friendly and many of the recipients will be glad they don’t have to throw another card into the trash when the holidays are over.
SET YOUR BUSINESS APART
As a digital marketing company, we want to make sure we stay ahead of the game when it comes to the digital world. By sending virtual Christmas cards, we are showing our clients and customers that we know how to use the virtual world to our advantage. Hopefully, by doing this we can inspire you and others to follow suit.
Drop the card boxes and put down those pens. This is the year of the virtual Christmas card. Whether it’s a message of Happy Holidays, Thank You, or We Wish you a Happy New Year, your customers will appreciate all the perks of this new method and so will you!
