Research indicates that, for clients, good communication and customer service are of the utmost importance.

Sending personalised greetings cards can aid communication and enhance your customer service, helping to consolidate a good relationship with your client. In marketing terms, sending greetings cards is very effective because it shows you are thinking about your clients on an individual level.
