Christmas ecards are becoming more and more popular, whether you want to connect with clients or friends and family.

If you are still sending paper cards, then you might like to consider the many advantages that have put business ecards out in front for celebrating Christmas. Before you call the printer or rush to the nearest shop, consider how an ecard can deliver festive cheer.

From being more cost-effective to environmentally friendly, ecards give you the opportunity to have an increased relationship with the recipient. Clients, customers, employees and investors – each can receive a personalised ecard, unlike traditional paper cards.

It’s not what you say but how you say it and this is never more true than with an ecard – it’s how you make your recipient feel.

Personalisation is the biggest advantage of ecards over paper alternatives. Personalising the ecard to fit each recipient will allow you to take your relationships to another level. You have a great opportunity to connect with an ecard. Clients respond much more to a personal touch – it can build a stronger relationship.

Ensuring a client knows that this message is just for them, that’s when it says something special about your relationship. Personalisation makes clients feel loved, so this is where targeting comes into play. Use your mailing list to make sure you understand your clients and ensure your relevancy to their interests.

The same can all be said for your employees when you send them a festive message. It’s why ecards are much more than your average Christmas card.

Kinder to the Environment

We all have an obligation to reduce our carbon footprint and ecards are part of the solution for going greener.

When you factor in the ecological cost of making and printing the card as well as the petrol used in having it delivered, then there is no real competition. Holiday ecards for businesses are far more eco-friendly than hard copy paper cards. Green businesses have an edge over non-green businesses as being environmentally responsible is essential for brand image.

You no doubt have much more pressing matters to attend to before you finish for Christmas. So, using ecards can save you a considerable amount of time. Instead of having to write out card after card, you can send them all out at once with a few clicks of a button. Even better, though, you can still ensure they’re personalised with unique messages.

People are more likely to use their PC and smartphone to buy or send a card. In fact, people are more likely now to create a personalised ecard to send to their friends and family than go to a shop and buy a card. Christmas ecards are the modern solution to sending out those all-important season’s greetings for businesses.

All you need to do is complete your layout and message before you press the send button. You’ll save time and prevent any potential damage to your relationship with a customer.

Cost-Effective for Businesses

Christmas can be excessive. Whether it’s gifts, visits or meals out, budgeting can be very useful over the festive period.

If you send out paper cards, then you will be aware of the cost and the time needed to sign them. If you are branding your cards, you will need to send them to a printer and proof them prior to press. That’s before arranging staff to sit down and get them ready for posting, pay for delivery and sending. It’s all a bit much.
