One of the best things about the Christmas season is showing those around you how much you care. For a business, this means sending messages to staff and customers who help make your business thrive. Although the Christmas season brings thoughts of warm fuzzy feelings and casual encounters, the best way to wish your workplace family a merry Christmas and Happy New Year, is to send a thoughtful, yet professional eCard branded with your logo. Never send the cards too late, as it reflects poorly on your image. Christmas and New Year Ecards are best sent during the first week in December as open rates are far better because your clients and contacts are still in their offices. Also - as the year gets closer to Christmas, people simply get busier and have less time to spent on checking out your awesome branded eCards.
The world is a very diverse base, and so are your customers. Try not to offend anyone’s religion or sense of humor. The best route is to make your wishes as generic as possible. Substituting “Merry Christmas” with “Happy Holidays” is a popular route many businesses take. However, if you run a more conservative company, chances are your customers won’t take offense to the “Merry Christmas” phrase. You can never go wrong with “Happy New Year”, so New year eCards for businesses are often an excellent alternative to Christmas.
Your customers and clients want to know that you care, so sending a heartfelt message shows them that they are more than just a source of revenue.
Lastly, when it’s time to send a card, e-cards are the best route to take as most businesses have thousands of clients and it would be too much of a hassle to send individual paper cards to each individual. Additionally - by using a service such as ekarda to send your Christmas greetings - you can automatically personalise the name on each card you send. There are many designs you can choose from when creating an e-card. Go for one that’s tasteful and really supports the brand and image of your company.
If you’re after something fun that your clients and staff can interact with - think about choosing an Interactive eCard design.
With all that said, here are some sample greetings to accompany your corporate Christmas eCard:

We have been creating corporate Christmas eCards for clients across the globe since the 2004. Initially we created the Christmas eCards and then sent them out manually on behalf of our clients.
