E-cards Holiday Greetings
E-cards are a great way to send your holiday greetings in a fun and interactive way. They're fast, convenient, and often free. Many websites offer free e-cards, free trials, or discounted prices such as Paperless Post, Punch Bowl, and American Greetings. These sites have a large selection of beautiful and customizable designs that you can choose from. Simply fill in the name and email address of your recipient, customize your message and hit send.
An email newsletter is perfect for businesses to send out to clients. An email newsletter allows you to share holiday-themed content, promote special offers and thank your clients for their business. There are many email marketing platforms available such as Mailchimp and Constant Contact that offer free templates and easy-to-use features. Make sure your email newsletter is mobile-friendly, concise and visually appealing to make a lasting impression on your clients.
Personalized Video Message
A personalized video message is a great way to add a personal touch to your holiday greetings. You can use platforms like Lumen5 , Vimeo, or Animoto to create short and engaging videos (we haven't used these yet but are interested in trying them out). Simply upload photos or videos, add a holiday message, and share on your social media platforms or email to your clients and family. This is a great way to stand out from the crowd and make your greetings memorable.
Despite the digital age, nothing beats the personal touch of a handwritten card. Take the time to write a heartfelt note and send a beautiful card to your clients and family. If you’re sending to a large number of people, consider the postage costs. We love using Canva to design and print our customized greeting postcards. Canva offers a large library of graphics, images, fonts, and templates as well as printing services. They’ll print, address and mail your cards for you, making it easy and hassle-free.
Social Media Post
Social media is a great platform to share your holiday greetings with friends, family and clients. Create a visually appealing graphic or use a platform like Canva (link above) to design a holiday-themed image. Add a heartfelt message and use relevant hashtags to maximize your reach. This is a great way to show your appreciation for your clients and family and wish them the very best this holiday season.
With so many options available, sending heartfelt holiday greetings has never been easier. This holiday season, take the time to show your appreciation for the people who matter in your life. Whether you choose to send an e-card, create a video message, or send a handwritten card, the most important thing is to let your clients and family know that you’re thinking of them during this holiday season.
