Last Minute Mobile Christmas Greetings

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty 0575737

Christmas GreetingAs we THINK of friends, family, and clients we have "forgotten" to send seasonal greetings for the holiday they are celebrating, remember the mobile device. Everyone is not necessarily sending out paper greeting cards. Try

  • Text greeting
  • Text greeting including a photo
  • Short email with greeting and maybe a photo or image attachment
  • Tweet to them if they view that daily
  • Facebook comment greeting
  • Phone them

People are busy with last minute shopping, scurrying around here or there, traveling, and with a mobile device in hand your quick impromptu but well thought out greeting will bring a smile to their face that YOU were kind and considerate enough to remember them.

Gary - Picnik has an email program where you design your card and send it to all your friends - I hope you got yours; I sent it about a week ago. You'e got a great point - we may not have time to write out cards to all our friends and business associates via snail mail, but there's always a way to do it electronically! I hope you have a wonderful Holiday!

Great suggestions Gary, but I'm thinking it's time for some good old fashioned phone calling!  Enjoy the holiday season my friend.  I wish you and your family all the best!

Nothing like being remembered. It can really brighten the day and make you feel special...and you're right we've got a number of ways to spread our cheer. Not sure if you're going to be around AR this weekend - so let me wish you a very Merry Christmas. I look forward to getting to know you better in 2012.  D

Text greeting is certainly helpful with those who love their handheld devices.

"I listen for a living." It's all about you.

Everyone wants to be remembered, not everyone thinks a text is an intimate form of communication.  I have some clients who would perfer this just like I have some clients who would be offended.  Know your audience is the watchword.

Gary, People do want to be remembered so I sent out homemade Christmas cards to clients, past and present through the mail and also a few greetings to friends and clients on facebook. Working to get an electronic newsletter done to send out monthly...part of 2012's marketing plan. Merry Christmas to you!

Remembering someone is a good thing to do anytime, maybe especially now, but two months from now on Tuesday will be nice too.
