I’m such a huge Happy Grasshopper fan. I’ve seen some of your other testimonials and I wanted to add my 2 cents.
Like everyone else, I was a bit skeptical of whether it would actually work. I really started to understand the power of keeping in touch and referral marketing from SendOutCards. I just wasn’t sure that an email written by someone else could actually have the same impact as a card.
Here is what happend:
I uploaded 30 contacts as part of my free trial. The first message I sent looked like this:
13 people responded immediately with things like this:
“TEEHEEheheheh ….that is so cute! I think that I have said that quote a million times – on Thanksgiving Day! You are so sweet to check in…I hope you and your family have a wonderful, loving family day tomorrow.”
“Thank you for your Happy Thanksgiving wishes. We had a great day. Hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Please send our best to Beth.”
I’ve had 7 emails go out since that one. They have been about everything from New Year’s resolutions to having a disaster plan. People respond to every message that is sent and it makes it easy for me to get conversations started with them.
I now have hundreds of contacts loaded into the system and I am continuing to grow my list.
The best part, I’ve gotten 3 referrals that I know would not have come my way if I hadn’t been staying in front of folks.
You guys are awesome – everyone should try this.
