The holidays are a special time when people are emotional. Sharing with friends and family is a top priority during this season and there is no reason why you shouldn’t use this in your marketing plan. Writing a Christmas card for your clients may be a way to thank them for their loyalty. It’s also a good opportunity to tell them about your projects for the upcoming year.
What to consider when writing a Christmas card for your audience
Writing to your clients is not the same as writing to your friends. With these people, you have a professional relationship. However, you shouldn’t underestimate the power of emotions. Experts in brand development and awareness stress the importance of having a connection with clients and this can only be achieved by combining two factors: quality of service and emotional bond.
If you choose to work as a freelancing writer, writing a Christmas card is something that you’ll have to do eventually. So, here’re some tips to consider when writing a Christmas card.
