Christmas eCards are a fantastic way to send multiple Christmas greetings cards out quickly and cost-effectively 

When you send a Christmas eCard, you do not need to design and print, or purchase physical cards and stamps. What’s more, your Christmas wishes will reach their destination immediately and, most importantly, on time as you are not relying on the postal service, which can become incredibly busy during the peak holiday season.

And if that wasn’t reason enough, by sending a Christmas eCard from eCard Shack, you can bypass the time-consuming and often monotonous task of manually writing and addressing multiple Christmas cards. This can be a lengthy process, not to mention the unnecessary wastage due to spelling mistakes and unsightly ink smudges!

eCards are an environmentally friendly way to send a Christmas greeting

At the end of the holiday season, Christmas cards are simply tossed in the bin and may end up in landfill sites; this is especially the case if they are designed with non-recyclable materials such as foil or glitter. 

A Christmas eCard allows you to send a meaningful Christmas wish safe in the knowledge that you are helping the environment and reducing your carbon footprint. This is particularly important for businesses looking to become more environmentally friendly in their ethos and approach.

Your clients may also be trying to become more sustainable with their environmental efforts and they may not want to be responsible for disposing of non-recyclable Christmas cards. 

What’s more, Christmas cards take up space and perhaps your clients would rather avoid the clutter? In this instance, a holiday eCard makes a perfect choice.

eCards are a safe and brilliant way to send a creative Christmas message directly to your clients whilst eliminating waste.

Corporate Christmas eCards are a fantastic marketing opportunity

Not only do corporate Christmas eCards help you express festive best wishes to your clients, suppliers and colleagues – but they’re a fantastic marketing opportunity too.

Christmas is often a time when people begin to wind down and work-related activity is less hectic. If you’re looking for a way to drive new traffic to your website and generate new leads and enquiries, then sending a corporate Christmas eCard is the perfect way to do this. 

Here at eCard Shack, we can include links to any part of your website – so, if you are looking to raise awareness of a new service or location, sending a Christmas eCard is a subtle, no pressure way of doing so.

As you can see, this is something which certainly sets Christmas eCards apart from their traditional paper counterparts.

(Plus, if you’re working in the marketing department, sending out business Christmas eCards is an excellent way of hitting your monthly website targets at what is usually a quiet time of year for many business websites).

You can measure the success of your business eCards

Related to the point above about eCards being an excellent marketing opportunity, eCards are also trackable. 

If you choose to send the eCard yourself using an email marketing service such as Mailchimp, you’ll be able to track who has and hasn’t received and opened your corporate Christmas eCard.

This can lead to some really powerful insights, such as finding out who your most (and least) engaged customers and suppliers are. These insights can help feed into future marketing activity, providing further value on top of the goodwill that an eCard generates.
