Research conducted by Heartfelt Charity Cards reveals common techniques for managing and executing a successful business greeting card campaign during the holiday season. A survey of clients in small and large businesses across a variety of industries finds planning, budgeting and list management among the top reasons why their efforts are successful.
Heartfelt's customers buy anywhere from 25 to 25,000 cards each holiday season. Most agreed that holiday greeting card marketing is not an "add-on" program but an important element of an integrated marketing plan.
The top five techniques to implement a successful marketing campaign for business greeting cards are:
1. Create a plan and systematize the process and timeline
2. Quantify a budget
3. Maintain your customer list
4. Incorporate interest
5. Build ownership
Most effective plans start with the early selection of artwork and the message, followed closely with the selection of holiday business greeting card recipients.
Cards should be ordered by early November.
Nicki L. Schuh is the owner and President of Heartfelt. "One of the major changes we have seen over the past several years is the inclusion of a logo in the imprinting of the cards and the writing of a more personalized message."
