Do you have a need for sending cards to clients?
How about a card with personalized photos and signatures?
Imagine sending cards to your current client base requesting referrals, introducing services, or just saying thanks! Well look no longer. I personally own my own landscape business. So I know this works.

I liked the service so much I became a Independent Rep.

Check it out!! Watch the video and press the link to send a couple of free cards on me!

These cards only cost 31 cents per postcard or 62 cents for a bi-fold.

Thanks

Great question Steve!!! This service/system allows you to customize your cards with your own pics if you would like or pic from a card catalog of over 14,000 cards.

The card stock is heavy duty not flimsy like some cards that you buy bulk.

You can also send campaigns to your clients, meaning you can send the same card to multiple clients very quickly and fully personalize them with their names in the cards!!

I urge you to try the service: Go to that is my site. Click on send a free card and away you go!!

Enjoy!
Jon Marshall

Are there any scans you can show us of what you chose to use so far? Or maybe what you plan on doing for your marketing campaign next year with this service?

What do you feel is the ideal marketing plan when using them?

Steve, I will get you some examples of cards.

I use my cards in various ways. First, when marketing to customers we need to realize that we don't always need to promote our business. That is why I send various holiday cards, like: Christmas, Thanksgiving, 4th of July etc..
If you show them that you care, they will treat you like family.

In regards to business development, I typically send cards to notify clients on what services they might need. Like mulching and edging, dethatching, in the spring, or maybe weeding and pruning. I recently sent out cards to get clients thinking about Snowplowing. The earlier they sign up the better so I can figure out my routes!

In a nutshell, keeping in consistent contact with customers, they know that you are there and you have your finger on the pulse. That way they don't have to worry about anything, you have it taken care of. After all that is what they pay you for. Your not necessarily cutting their lawn, you are solving a problem for them. Maybe time issues, or spending time with family.

I will get some renditions and post them.

How many times per year do you recommend sending out material to your customer base?

What % of them should be marketing material and what % should be just a simple Happy Whatever Day type of card?

Jon,

First off, that is AWESOME!

Now here is my view on this. Most business owners have no time to think about anything. Everyday is a mad dash to work and finish up the day so they can get home, eat and pass out.

VERY FEW people think about things like this.

What you could do is become their marketing director. You should be on here with different marketing packages. Take care of all of this stuff for them.

Have different marketing packages that offer different amounts of mailings per year at different prices.

Then every time you are about to start sending out material, notify everyone on here they need to do this and get more customers lined up to hire your services.

As members see more results from it, word will spread and more will want this.

You could come up with a lot of great photos they could use too that are themed per season along with some kind of hint of lawn care or snow plowing services.

Keep up the great work!
