During the holidays one nice gesture you can make is to send a little holiday greeting to clients. You can accomplish a few things by acknowledging clients during the holidays…
- Keep your name on the client’s radar.
- Score a gig – i.e. use this opportunity for contact, to ask about their needs for writers on upcoming projects.
- Set yourself apart. Face it, good writing is well, good writing. Hundreds of writers can sufficiently complete a project. Sending out a holiday greeting sets you apart as the good writer who is also friendly and thoughtful.
You can send greeting cards, but that’s a little much. You can also send postcards or e-cards. I usually send e-cards, because of the eco-impact, although on the paper upside, a client may keep the postcard around, but delete an e-card.
If you’re thinking that this holiday gesture sounds like a plan, we’ve got a great giveaway that can help you out.
