Christmas is the time of the year where giving and sharing is almost everywhere. It really doesn’t matter wether your gift is something pricey or not. It’s the thought that really counts as they say.
1. If you are going to put names, be sure that the cards will really get to the respective families who are to receive it.
Personalized cards are a lot better to send than the generic ones because the receiver will feel more special when you they know that you know them. Just make sure that you will be giving out the cards that are meant to the family who will receive it because simple mistakes like that may insult the receiver. They will think that you are just trying out to make a sale than really giving back to them. For the families that you are not sure of, just send the generic ones but still has a touch of effort or at least the cards that look good and mean well.
2. Send the cards to the mail earlier for the recipient to receive it on time and not later.
Mails usually take 3 days or so to get to its destination and it may even take longer when the area is from quite a distance. For your cards to make an impact and get appreciated, the card should be received on the day or before the Christmas. This is also for them to be able to avail the freebies or promos that you have enclosed in the card. If they receive it later than expected, they may no longer avail the discounts or promos that you are giving them because they no longer need it or want it because the occasion is over and it is a regular day again.
3. Though the internet is now overpowering the world, it is still better to stick to the conventional ways such as sending out Christmas cards rather than e-cards.
If you want your clients and customers to feel valued and appreciated, you should avoid sending out e-cards and use the real Christmas cards instead. This will make them happy especially that you took an effort in sending them a mail. Most businessmen no longer do it these days but you should stand out and be different for you to be noticed by the people. Dare to be different since this will capture the attention of the people. They will see that you really value them and you are willing to spend for them just to give back to the loyalty that they have been giving you.
4. Send a professional card to your business associates.
For your business associates that you are not very close with, you should keep the Christmas cards that you are sending in a professional way. This is for them not to feel awkward or obliged in having to return the favor give you cards as well. Professional cards should be sent on their offices and not on their homes unless you have already been introduced to the family or you have known them already. Sending out professional Christmas cards is just a form of respect that you are valuing the business relation that you have together.
