What's New in Holiday Greeting Cards This Year - Part 1

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and the winter holiday eCard season is already beginning. This newsletter gives you the skinny on:

When Should You Send Your Holiday eCards?

Sending Seasons Greetings eCards for the holiday season

Many email marketing companies have published statistics that Tuesday is the most popular day for sending emails and has the highest open and click through rates. Does that mean you should send your eCards on Tuesday? In our experience we see a higher open rate for email sent earlier in the week, but not enough of a difference to delay sending an email message that is time sensitive.

We do recommend that our customers avoid sending during peak times like Black Friday and Cyber Monday because your email has a chance of getting ignored in someone's overwhelmed inbox. Most people check their email more during the week so pretty much anytime Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday is optimal. But, even if your 'timing' is excellent, there are other important factors to consider when ensuring your eCard gets through.

CorpNote's motto has always been quality over quantity. First, it is important to verify that your email list is up to date and you have removed any bouncebacks or unsubscribe requests from your last mailing. Second, you need a strong subject line to ensure that your recipients will be prompted to open your email. Good subject lines and a high quality permission-based email list, will always give you the highest success rate. With CorpNote, you will see if someone picks up your eCard within the first 24 hours. If they haven't, you should make sure the email address is current and then send it again within 48 hours using a new, better targeted subject line. (E.g. "You're Invited (second notice) – Your response is required")

Seasons Greetings eCards

We've been busy this year! Here are some of the highlights.

Effortlessly Send your eCards to Larger Lists

Sending holiday eCards

The CorpNote system enables you to send an eCard to 250 recipients at a time with a single click. But, what if you want to send your eCard to a larger list? Here's how to do it in 2 easy steps:

  1. After you send your holiday eCard to the first batch of 250 recipients, click the button that says, 'Copy This eCard.'

  2. Click on the 'Address & Schedule' button, add (from your address book or paste in) your next 250 recipients and click the 'Send' button.

You can continue this easy process until everyone on your mailing list has been sent the eCard.

Another time saving tip: Create 'Groups' in your CorpNote Address book to make sending eCards to large lists even easier. Groups can hold up to 250 recipients, and can be accessed with a single click when you are addressing your eCard.
