When to send business anniversary cards?
Celebrating well-earned milestones is an important part of keeping your spirits high as business owners. While you’re sending these cards to help boost your business (more on that later) you’re also allowing yourself to make a fuss about all the hard work that you’ve put into this thing.
The anniversary of the start of your company.
For one, there’s the anniversary from the day that your company was started aka your own business anniversary. It’s no small task running and maintaining a successful business so don’t be shy! Let the world know you’ve been around killing it for the last year, two or TEN!
Your customer’s time with the company or service.
While celebrating your time as a company is important, it’s equally as important to mark your customer’s time with you and your company. This is applicable to just about any kind of business or service.
- Realtors: The one year anniversary of helping your clients buy their home.
- Product businesses: The one year anniversary of their big purchase. Check in on them to see how it’s going!
- Any service provider: The X time anniversary of the last time you helped them. The timing for this last one will vary based on industry (hair salon vs. taxes).
So you obviously want to boost awareness of your brand with your clients, but don’t forget about the employees that make your company run on the day-to-day. Boosting and maintaining a high employee morale is an important aspect of running any successful business. Sending your employees these greeting cards to mark the time they’ve invested into your company is a tiny gesture of gratitude that will speak volumes.
Why send company anniversary cards?
Ok, so you know when some good touch points are for business anniversary cards are, but why would you even bother sending them?
Customer retention is key.
The number one reason is customer retention. Direct mail is an easy way to boost this important metric for your own company.
Your clients want to feel that you value them and their business. They want to feel important (don’t we all). Sending them personal snail mail is an easy way to acknowledge them and their value.
At the end of the day, your ultimate goal in running just about any business is to sell something to someone. Sending these personalized business greeting cards allows you to place your branding in front of customers who have already proven that they value your service or product.
Direct mail that looks personalized and enticing has an unfathomably high open rate (as in 100% because who in their right mind would toss a lovely looking envelope with a handwritten address). So while you could send promotional emails all day long, you’ll never be able to compete with these open rates.
Build brand loyalty and generate word of mouth.
What is a business anniversary card if not a thank you note in disguise? If you treat the messaging on your anniversary cards as an opportunity to express gratitude (and avoid selling anything), your clients will be struck with all the fuzzy feelings.
It is incredibly rare for companies to mail out personal [handwritten] thank you notes. This act of gratitude will stand out to your customers who will then be converted from simple customers to life-long brand loyalists.
And brand loyalists will help you boost your word of mouth like no others!
