“We predict we are going to see a 200% increase in sales in ecards this year due to the combined factors of recession, postal strikes and an increased awareness of environmental issues,” says Ed Myer of charityecards4business.com
Top 5 reasons to use www.charityecards4business.com
1. Cheaper and quicker
Charityecards4business.com offers a fantastic selection of high quality animated ecards, offering a uniquely interactive experience for the recipient. They’re fast, easy to send, far more cost effective than traditional cards and can be sent anywhere in the world.
And what’s different about this site is for a £20-50 one-off fee, 10% of which goes to charity; you can upload a personal message, add a company logo and send to unlimited recipients. And rather then having to provide a database of recipients, you will receive a link to your ecard which you can send from your email to your whole address book.
“Many companies just don’t have the same budget this year for Christmas, so ecards are a great alternative. Not only do you save on card costs, postage and carbon footprint with ecards, but you save staff time stuffing and sealing envelopes, not to mention the endless time spent chasing directors’ signatures for conventional business Christmas cards.” Ed Myer of Charityecards4business.com
2. Reduce your business carbon footprint
Every year hundreds of thousands of trees are pulped to create the Christmas cards we send out, they arrive at their destination and are left on a desk until after the festive season when many are simply put in the bin – not even recycled! Hardly environmentally friendly!
“More and more businesses are trying to be greener and ecards are a simple, cost effective step in the right direction. By sending ecards this Christmas businesses can decrease the use of paper, ink, distribution and packaging materials that are key sources of carbon emissions,” says Myer.
3. Beat the postal strike
Don’t panic about your business Christmas cards arriving on time this year. Sending ecards removes the stress factor, guarantees delivery on time and saves £’s!
“With postal strikes looming from now until Christmas, ecards are a great alternative and are guaranteed to arrive! Many companies are already prepared for the strikes and we’ve been seeing a huge increase in hits to our website around strike days as businesses look for an alternative to sending traditional cards this year. Once on the site, companies are realising the money they could save, postage alone for paper cards can run into hundreds of pounds”, says Myer.
4. Hottest animators in the business
Lukas Pazara struck gold when he worked on the animations for the BBC introduction to the Beijing Olympics! Also having worked on projects such as Gorillaz with Blur lead Damon Albarn, Pazara has used his skills to produce some fantastic animations for Charityecards4business.com.
The site also sees designs by Ed Myer who has worked on the Disney production Beverly Hill Chihuahua and Call of Duty 3, the no1 selling PS3 game!
“When it comes to animation, the quality is crucial that’s why we use top names as it puts us ahead of the competition. Last Christmas we produced ecards for companies including Texaco, McCain’s, SAS Airlines and SpecSavers – it’s definitely a growing trend,” says Ed Myer of charityecards4business.com.
5. Marketing opportunity
Sending an ecard doubles up as a great marketing opportunity as you can add extra information into the email about your business, such as Christmas opening times, offers and promotions. In every business, you need to be one step ahead of the competition and by using ecards you can do just that!
