Generating sales can be especially challenging during a downward economy. How can you boost your business without breaking the bank? Using promotional cards can be a cost-effective way to market your business and provide your customers an incentive to shop.
It’s easy and affordable to make your own professional-looking promotional cards right from your desktop with Avery Clean Edge® Business Cards and the free Avery Design & Print Online software. Create your own custom design or select a pre-designed template to help get you started. You can print as many cards as you need, or change your design at any time. For a little inspiration, take a look at these ideas:
To reward loyal customers
Taking care of your current customers can be worth the payoff. The 80-20 Rule, or Pareto Principle, is a common rule of thumb in business that states 20% of your customers are responsible for 80% of your business. By rewarding your loyal customers, they can reward you back.
- Thank you. Give out cards that can be redeemed for a discount, free gift or service upgrade as a simple “thank you” to your loyal customers who frequent your business.
- VIP membership. Make your customers feel special with a VIP membership card to give them exclusive access into private sales, special discounts, complimentary consultations and more.
To earn repeat business
- Buy one, get one half off. Get customers to stock up on their favorite items by offering the second item at half the price.
To attract new customers
Once you’ve created your promotional cards, send out a mailer to all your current customers. In your mailer, announce your special promotion or event and include your card. Then give your mailer that professional touch with a custom label you can create using Avery White Easy Peel® Address Labels and the free Avery Wizard software for Microsoft® Office. When you need to pump up your business on a budget, using promotional cards can give your customers a little “push” toward your business.
Tip: Want to increase the chances of getting your mailer opened? Entice your customers with a callout message such as “Special Offer Inside,” attached to the outside of the envelope using Avery Clear Easy Peel Address Labels. Our Clear Labels virtually disappear onto the surface when applied giving your mailing piece a neat, clean look. Your customers won’t be able to resist what they’ll find inside!
