You already know that your annual holiday card is an important part of your ongoing communication with current and prospective clients, as well as with colleagues and vendors. But the time and effort required to select, purchase, sign, and send holiday cards can be daunting, especially at mid-size and larger firms.
ASL can ease your burden by providing you with several streamlined options for purchasing cards and coordinating their mailing.
Microsite technology takes the hard work out of holiday card purchasing. Microsites make it much easier to coordinate card purchases across multiple departments or attorneys by allowing each individual to order the number of cards they need with the correct imprint information.
Microsites also allow users to view and purchase only “firm approved” holiday cards.
Three Kinds of Microsites
Standard microsites, which restrict card choices to standard selections only.
These sites allow your firm to show and order any number of stock cards. Each individual user can log on – using one universal user name and password – choose the card they want to send along with the greeting typestyle, and process they would like to apply to produce the card. This order is then placed on your account and is sent directly to the individual who purchased the card.
This is type of microsite is ideal when your firm wants to send only 1 or 2 card designs, but each attorney or sender would like to have their own greeting and personal verse on the inside.
Custom microsites, which include all the standard functionality, PLUS allow credits card purchasing and restriction of greeting and imprint options.
These sites allow your firm to keep control of your brand standards while allowing each individual attorney/sender to order to exact number of cards they need. You choose and approve the firm imprint, but the individual attorney/sender can choose the quantity.
Have you decided not to offer traditional printed card this year? You can still offer this option to the attorneys in your firm, keep your brand standard, but have the attorneys place their individual orders on their personal credit cards, outside the firm’s budget.
Programmable microsites, which include additional customizations. Should your firm need any additional requirements not available in the types of sites described above, you should request those as early in the year as possible, as the site will require programming time.
