How Christmas Cards Contribute to your Points of Difference


All business owners are looking to get any advantage they can get over their competitors. This is why it is important to have a list of compelling reasons as to why your company is better than others in your category. Having a clear idea as to the benefits received by your customers when they do business with you is the starting point for any marketing campaign. These benefits will help you market your business better and increase sales.


There are seven points of difference in doing business with Australian Christmas Cards. The reasons below make us stand out from our competitors. 1. We have a culture of friendliness and helpfulness with our professional team. 2. We exceed expectations and provide free gifts and bonuses for our clients and donations to charity. 3. We have great relationships with our customers – some we have helped for over 25 years. 4. It is very easy to order from us. Customers can pay on account and talk to us about their requirements. 5. For Christmas card printing, quality and accuracy are vital. Yet, we look to protect our customers rather than ourselves. There are no multi page contracts. Our customers just email or call to say the proof is good and please print. 6. We educate our clients. I write and print a monthly newsletter called Keeping Your Customers for Life and also two ezines per month called SmallBizTips. 7. Finally, we are the only Christmas card company in our industry that has a 120% Money Back Guarantee. This means if you are not happy with the quality of our Christmas cards, we will give you your money back plus 20% for wasting your time or alternatively, pay someone else to print your cards for you.


Obviously, as one of the leading suppliers of corporate Christmas cards in Australia, we send Christmas cards to our clients. However, suppose we provided other products and services besides Christmas cards. We would definitely still send Christmas cards to our clients.


Point 1 says we have a culture of friendliness and helpfulness. Point 3 says we have great relationships with our customers. With these two points of difference in our list of benefits, do you think the sending of Christmas cards would be part of that plan? Of course it would. If friendliness and strong relationships with your customers are part of your company culture, then you would enhance your reputation in these areas of your business by sending Christmas cards to your clients.


Your points of difference are not the same as a Unique Selling Proposition. A Unique Selling Proposition is a much shorter statement that can be a powerful influence on buying decisions but generally it is lacking in detail. Most consumers will want more detail before being influenced by a company’s short Unique Selling Proposition.


An example that I often use when talking about Unique Selling Propositions is Woolworths. Its slogan, “the Fresh Food People” is short but effective. It lists one benefit of doing business with Woolworths. It’s used in an effort to distinguish itself from other supermarkets rather than claiming to be the only seller of fresh food in Australia.


Other benefits might be low prices, convenient locations, large trolleys, fast checkout, large range of products and free parking. These are really supplementary benefits but when added to the Unique Selling Proposition, make an even more compelling case to buy their products and services.


Large companies may find it easy to have a short Unique Selling Proposition that is easily recognised. Here are two more.

Domino’s Pizza – We deliver fresh hot pizza to your door in 30 minutes or less or it is free.

Federal Express – If it absolutely, positively has to be there overnight.


It is important not to try and be everything but specialise in just one thing. That is why the above are so powerful. They are easy to remember. Note that Domino’s Pizza does not guarantee to bake the most nutritious pizzas. Federal Express does not guarantee to be cheapest freight company.


Smaller companies tend to have longer Unique Selling Propositions and they simply become a point of difference or in some cases, multiple points of difference. Here are three clever Unique Selling Propositions from smaller companies.

a) Saddleback Leather’s website is full of stories about Mexican bullfighting and travel in third world countries. Their slogan is “They’ll Fight Over it When You’re Dead.”

b) Mast Brothers Chocolate has a compelling story about how their chocolate is made. The brothers relate stories back to the 18th century when people took a lot of pride in working with their hands. They tell stories of travelling in a wooden sailing boat to faraway lands to find the best cacao bean possible. Then, the beans are shipped back by sailboat. The brothers make every chocolate bar themselves from the cacao bean to the packaging.

c) Steve “created Nerd Fitness to give people struggling to get healthy a fighting chance.” His slogan is “Stop taking advice from the dark side. There’s a better way to get healthy.” Nerd Fitness is unique because it sells to a certain group of people.

Reference

Ideally, a Unique Selling Proposition should be brief but this is not always possible. It is not easy to come up with points of difference for your company. You could tell interesting stories about your products to make them appeal to your buyers as Saddleback Leather have done. You could also talk about how your product is made and explain the effort taken to manufacture your product and why this process makes it the best. Thirdly, you can make your product appeal to a certain audience and Nerd Fitness has done this in a clever way.


There are other ways to make your product stand out. You can exhibit exceptional service as Federal Express has done. You could offer an amazing guarantee as we have done with our 120% Money Back Guarantee – unheard of in the Christmas card printing industry. Also, Domino’s Pizza has a simple and easily remembered guarantee. You could also take one aspect of your product and highlight this. Woolworths highlights the freshness of its food.


Other ways you could stand out is with your prices, how your product helps the environment, the results your products or service generate, how you help the community such as charities. You could also talk about the safety of your product or any awards you have received.


There really are endless ways to explain your points of difference. Firstly, you must determine who your target market is and what is needed to please them. If you are still stumped for ideas, just ask your customers. They will tell you why they buy from you. These answers may vary and what you will get is a list of points of difference which are easier to gather than a single Unique Selling Proposition.


Sending Christmas cards to your clients helps you keep in touch with your clients and builds on that relationship and it will make your clients more willing to communicate with you. It will help you to gather a long list of points of difference for your business. Then, it is up to you to live up to those points of difference. If one of those benefits is a strong relationship and effective communication, then the sending of Christmas cards will help to build on that perception of friendliness that your customers currently have about you.


The Double Benefit of Charity Christmas Cards

Why should businesses send charity Christmas Cards?

The simple reason is it is profitable to send Christmas cards to your clients. If you have a customer that is worth hundreds or thousands of dollars to you in annual sales or profit, then this customer is worth nurturing. The more times you keep in touch with customer, the more chance you have of keeping that customer. It is important that at least one customer touch per annum is of a non-selling nature.

Customers like to be appreciated rather than simply be asked to give more and more money to their supplier. If you only thank or recognise your customer once a year, then the logical time is at Christmas time for two reasons.

Firstly, Christmas is a time of giving. Families exchange presents. Volunteers give their time to help charities. Others give money to charities.

Secondly, Christmas falls at the end of the year. Many businesses are closed from Christmas to the New Year so Christmas Day really symbolises the end of the business year. For businesses, Charity Christmas cards serve as end of year thank you cards. It makes more sense to thank your customers for their business over the past year in December than at any other time of the year.

In recent times there has been a gradual trend away from corporate Christmas cards as businesses mistakenly shun the mail as a communication media. This is a mistake as the open rate of a printed Christmas card is over 99% whilst the open rates of emails whether they be at Christmas time or at other times of the year is now under 20% and falling.

I could not imagine sending a message of thanks to my customers knowing that statistically speaking, the chance of that message being read was less than 20%.

You may well say that surely, a Charity Christmas card can’t really make that much of a difference.

Let me share you with two true stories of a commercial moving company and a mortgage broker.

The mortgage broker kept in touch with his client annually for seemingly no benefit. Then several years after the first loan was written, the borrower came back to the same mortgage broker for another loan. This is the power of Christmas cards and other greeting cards. Customers do remember them.

Recently my business was seeking a commercial removalist company to move premises. It was over six years since we last moved and the company did a good job so I wanted to hire them again. However, I could not remember who they were. They had never kept in touch so we decided to hire another business. Here is a classic example where an annual Christmas card would have generated a future sale well in excess of a thousand dollars.

I hope I have convinced you that Christmas cards are worth sending and offer even greater benefit when your competitors don’t send them. The question then remains, why send Charity Christmas cards instead of regular corporate Christmas cards.

Let me draw your attention to an article in Forbes Magazine. It basically records the results of a survey by Reputation Institute, a private consulting firm based in New York. 47,000 consumers participated in this survey. It listed the top ten companies in the world for corporate social responsibility. The top three were Microsoft, Google and Disney.

OK, so it is hard to match these massive global companies for corporate social responsibility. Again, I head to Forbes magazine. In January, 2015, Paul Klein, founder and president of Impakt, stated that one of the ways of doing this is to be philanthropic but by giving, not just for the sake of giving, but towards appropriate and worthwhile social causes.
Reference - http://www.forbes.com/sites/forbesleadershipforum/2015/01/05/how-companies-can-become-more-socially-responsible-in-2014/

Most small businesses I deal with are time poor and want to engage in corporate social responsibility but just don’t have the time to do so.

Philanthropy is one way of demonstrating corporate social responsibility. The best way to do this is give money in conjunction with something you were planning to buy anyway.

This is the power of charity Christmas cards. They provide a double benefit. You boost your relationships with your clients which in turn will lead to more repeat sales. Also, you can demonstrate to your clients your worth as a corporate citizen by explaining on your charity Christmas cards that you have donated to a worthwhile charity. In fact, the actual donation will add to the effect of the Christmas cards.

Your clients who receive your charity Christmas cards will be appreciative that you recognise their contribution they make to your success and also appreciate that you have taken the time and money to donate to a worthwhile cause.
