TaxAssist christmas cardHave you got your Christmas cards ready?

With the Olympics almost over we will find ourselves trying to get back on track and now Christmas is just around the corner.

Harrods, however designed their Christmas calendar well in advance!
The company were well prepared.

The Christmas department opened before the Olympics started when the London store saw Father Christmas arrive in a Union Jack-painted Jaguar wearing sunglasses for its July 26 festive launch. Fair to say┬áSanta arrived along with the Olympic torch! He certainly didn’t detour!

Planning ahead is essential for all businesses, avoiding that last minute tax return or advertising deadline! Planning your day, your week or your month – for those of you who are that organised – just makes the rest of us plain jealous!

Certain events create a neccessity for the most unorganised to get organised, dates like exhibitions need careful planning, the required media, advertising, literature and staffing can’t be left to chance if you want to get the most out of the money invested. Product launches and promotions need careful planning, seasonal campaigns aimed at specific customer communications are much more effective when timed with foresight!

Christmas campaigns being one of the most important and easiest to implement!

What a great opportunity for sending a thank you to your loyal customers or offering a special Christmas offer!

eslip christmas cardThere are many choices for sending your Christmas greetings, and a great excuse to send your clients emails and ‘Seasonal’ Newsletters but a Christmas card is usually a nice touch and often guarantees a response.

However how many cards get stacked on the side with half a dozen of the same kind? Even the run of the mill corporate cards can find themselves duplicated in the ‘In-Tray’.

Wouldn’t it be great to know your Christmas greeting was filed for reference in the new year or was added to the suppliers database?

Finding a solution is easy, be different! Think original and tailor your Christmas greeting to your clients interests or humour. What makes them laugh, what do they like to eat or drink, or which sport do they play?

What would interest you and why would you keep a card back for future reference?
