You still have time to get this important follow up strategy completed! However at this point you are a bit limited on how you can get this done. One way is to make a mad rush to the store and buy boxes of holiday cards only to spend today and most of the weekend writing them out. I must say the thought of you actually doing thing is making me tired! I know as I have done this so many times in the past! I am sure if you have not yet sent your holiday cards you know you need to and have just been procrastinating to the very last minute!
Don’t worry! You have another option available to you which will allow you to send all of your holiday cards within a few hours. Whether you need to send 100 or 2,000 holiday cards you still have time to get it done! It all starts with having access to a powerful system called SendOutCards!
SendOutCards is a very simple online tool which allows you to upload all of your addresses, choose a holiday card from over 1,000 choices, type out a nice holiday message, and with a few clicks send to your entire database! Your cards are then printed, stuffed in envelopes with a real stamp, and placed in the mail the next day! The best part is you can actually send the same holiday card to 500 customers and prospects and then go back and write additional messages to your top 25 customers and prospects to make them more personal. This means no customer or prospect is forgotten! SendOutCards also allows you to add gifts to your cards! So if you should be sending a little something extra to those top clients you are covered!

There is just no other service on the market that can do this with such ease! I have used this service for the past few years for holiday cards as well as all the different business greeting card occasions with great success. This is not just a holiday card tool!
If you happen to be one of those thinking “it’s too late to send holiday cards at this point” or “does sending holiday cards really make a difference in my business?”, I would encourage you to consider recent research by Hallmark: Hallmark found that businesses say they use greeting cards as a “kind of investment in their business… They’re investing in customer relationship with the hopes that it will pay back”. The company has conducted research that found at least half of customers who received holiday cards from businesses say they are more likely to continue doing business with that company versus another one. You can read more on this by reading the article in the Washington Post.
So the question to ask yourself is not whether you should send holiday cards or not… The question is whether you want your current customers to continue doing business with you!
