3 reasons why you should offer Holiday Cards
- Help clients share precious moments with loved ones
With a pandemic that has brought unprecedented changes to how we connect with family and friends, it's even more important now to create tangible opportunities to reignite human connection. Photography is a powerful tool that eternalizes memories and allows us to share the emotions from special events with those we love, who couldn't join us due to travel restrictions. If you shot events this year, it is possible that your clients had only a sliver of the people they wish were there to celebrate with them. Go beyond digital, and allow your clients to share their most precious moments in a caring and meaningful way, such as a holiday card.
- Stand out by bringing more value through your brand
Not one photographer is the same. As with any business, you are on the road to shape your brand's identity and your client's experience with your business. If you are exploring ways to stand out from the crowd, and bring more value to your clients, offering Holiday Cards to your mini sessions may be just the solution. It does not require any extra work on your side, but will bring so much joy to your clients and their families.
- Free Marketing
If the first two reasons are not enough to convince you to turn on this feature inside your Store, we're sure this one will. Imagine your clients ordering Holiday Cards, having those mailed to their loved ones. Family and friends, people you don't even know, will receive these cards, read heartfelt greetings and admire beautifully printed images. Your images. They may even add the card to their mantelpiece or night table for everyone to admire. This is a brilliant way to promote your services and your craft, in a way that does not impose any costs on you.
