Tis the season for spreading joy and love and apparently some pretty bad taste. As a business owner and professional, you may be sending out Christmas cards this year to your clients and fellow pros. It should be about thanks and spreading the joy of the season, not a time to solicit business!
Here are 4 well thought out tips for sending business holiday cards courtesy in large part from the very professional Courtney Hammons of A Magical Affair.
Do not include your business cards – if I am important enough to send a Christmas card to than I should be someone you know!
It is not the time to plug what you do with photos of your work!
If I have not worked with you this past year telling me it has been a blessing working with me leads me to believe I am just a long line of cards you were signing your name to!
Take the time to sign the cards! You are not the queen of England or the president of the United States if the people you are sending the cards to are not worth the 3 seconds it takes to sign your name than you should not be sending them!
All of these strike me as in as bad of taste as telling your brides to send cards in their invitations advertising where they are registered!
