SendOutCards: earn referrals by staying top of mind

Sending gifts and cards to clients can be time consuming and expensive, but this solution takes the pain out of the process and saves small businesses money.

Maintaining relationships with clients

As a small business professional, reaching out and maintaining relationships with current and previous clients can take a lot of time, work, and dedication. That task alone can be a full-time job. And chances are, you don’t have that kind of time. Even so, you probably know how important those relationships are to your professional success and future recommendations and referrals, not to mention it’s just good business sense.

Through just an easy internet search, you’ll come across pages of results for companies who specialize in sending professional gifts and cards for you, right to your clients and users. However, these can come with a steep pricing list. Or, you could choose to do it all yourself—the purchasing of the gifts or cards, addressing them, buying postage, and dropping them off at the local post office.

While this will save you some money, it will use up your precious time, time that can be productively used on other business-related tasks. Don’t get frustrated just yet. There is a solution that fits right in the middle of those two polar opposites –

Solution for small business owners

SendOutCards offers a unique service for small business owners. All you have to do is create an account and log in to their system. From there, you can design, develop, and create personalized and professional cards to send to your own clients. You also have the option to include a gift card or even choose a gift to go along with it. While this may not seem unique to other similar companies and services, there is more.

After an order, many similar companies will then send you the large box of cards, and you get the pleasure to address, stuff, and send them at your convenience, which isn’t convenient at all. SendOutCards will actually do all of that for you. So, all you have to do is upload your clients’ mailing addresses and choose a gift and card. And the best part of it all? This service usually averages about one dollar per card, making it an affordable and convenient option for any sized business.

Reminding your customers that you’re aware of them and appreciative of their business and loyalty through a card and gift can earn you better reviews, more loyal customers, and happily-shared recommendations. SendOutCards enables you to stay in contact with your clients and stay on top of and focused on your day-to-day work tasks. Staying productive, within budget, and connected is not only possible, but easy.

    This sounds great on paper but when you go to the site you can’t register /join without having a sponsor. You have to call customer service, then they track down a “sponsor” which you have no idea how long it will take for them to get back with you and all of this work is before you can even LOOK at the cards, gifts and examples of their products. Is there not a smarter company that can offer the same service without taking away our control as a customer? I wanted to get in, register, check it out and get started within 5-10 minutes. Not be at the mercy of a string of other people/sponsors.
