Sending assorted greeting cards for different occasions to clients, customers and business associates is a great way to advertise and keep your company on the minds of many throughout the year.
Most of my friends usually send me an email or call me on my birthday. At my age (which we will not disclose now that I became a Grandmother), we rarely get gifts. That day usually consists of many calls and a dinner somewhere during the weekend with the entire family. After the calls, the greetings are gone and there is nothing in the house to remind me of my birthday. So by receiving birthday cards in the mail from my doctor, dentist, and insurance company, I get to look at them every day with a smile on my face.
Not only do I get greeting cards for my birthday and Christmas, I also get All Occasion cards from businesses throughout the year. On July 4th my local town hall sent a card to wish everyone a happy holiday and to advertise the parade and fireworks. On Thanksgiving I received a greeting card from my local produce shop with a coupon inside. It’s great receiving these cards as they remind me to call for a doctor’s appointment or order my holiday dinner trimmings! Now that spring is in the air, I just received a card from the real estate agent I rented a house from last summer to remind me to book it again soon.
These are things I may not have remembered to do if I didn’t receive greeting cards from these businesses. What a great and inexpensive way to advertise, especially in today’s economy!
