How to Take the Stress Out of Sending Holiday Cards
The holidays tend to stir up our emotions – from the joys of festive environments filled with colorful decorations and delicious aromas streaming from the kitchen to the fear of experiencing another round of “holiday hand cramp” from writing and addressing your holiday cards.
On a personal level, perhaps you “recruit” or “bribe” your spouse and/or children to assist you with this task. You get your list together, buy the cards, buy stamps, draft a holiday letter outlining key events from the year and make copies on colorful paper, get photos made and printed, and print address labels. Then you gather the family around the dining table and have everyone sign the cards with a colorful pen while they groan and ask ‘Are we done yet?’. Then, assuming your “helpers” are still speaking to you, you arrange all the pieces in an assembly line and give everyone their assignments: fold the letter, stuff the letter inside the card, add the photo, place in the envelope, seal the envelope, add the address label and stamp. When the process is over, everyone is exhausted and happy the holidays only come once a year…but there is a better way!
From a business standpoint, if you’re sending cards to clients and/or prospects, you may be forced to do this yourself, assign the task to your unsuspecting assistant, or pay to have the process outsourced. This may be the only time of year you show appreciation to your clients for their business, so you know it needs to be done. Your clients expect it. We live in the Internet age, where there’s always someone offering your products and services better, faster, and/or cheaper, making it more important than ever for your clients to feel like their business is important to you. So how do you satisfy your clients’ expectations when you don’t have the time (and can’t afford to upset your assistant)? Great news!
