In the spirit of being 'green', many of our customers are planning to send holiday eCards and online holiday party invitations instead of the traditional postal mailing. But, using eCards goes beyond a company's going green initiative. eCards offer interactivity, card view tracking and much more that you just can't get from a printed greeting card.
Holiday eCards also help with party planning and consolidating guest lists. Managing a holiday party is so much easier with an online event management tracking system.
Here are some of the holiday eCard trends we are seeing this year...
eCards and Social Media: Many companies are using CorpNote’s social media sharing feature to post a link to their holiday eCard from Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and more. Check out our online tutorials: Using eCards in social media
eCards Posted on your Website: You can use our direct link feature to post a link on your website to your holiday eCard. Check out the tutorial: Direct Link to your eCards
Online Holiday Party Invitations: CorpNote has a lot of great features for sending your online holiday party invitations. For example, you can ask questions of your guests such as their meal choice. But did you know you can also send reminder eCards and follow-up thank you eCards? One of our members told me she sends a survey after her company's annual holiday party asking what her employees liked and didn't like about the event so she can make it better next year. That's a great idea! Learn more about online invitations in the tutorials section of our site.
Video Links in eCards: Most everyone knows that holiday eCards are more economical and they support a company's ’green’ initiatives; but, eCards also offer a more immersive experience than print. Some of our members are linking their eCards to interactive games or online video stories of what their company did this year that made a difference. For example, one of our members had a video made of their employees doing volunteer work and how much money they raised for various causes. They posted the video on YouTube and then linked to it from their website and their holiday eCards.
We're sure you will come up with lots of creative ways to engage your audience with holiday eCards this year. If you need more holiday eCard tips, follow us in social media or sign up for our email newsletter.
