-- The SendOutCards program has had a strong impact in the growth of Kim Hughes’ Real Estate Virtual Assistance business. According to Hughes, “Businesses are in the midst of a service crisis that has left disillusioned customers in its wake from coast to coast. My referral marketing systems have created innovative techniques that can help create a revolution in businesses across the country while turning customers into referral magnets!”
A recent survey showed that consumers send an average of 10 cards per year, or roughly one card per month. SendOutCards believes that there is an incredible opportunity for people to improve their professional and personal relationships by sending out a card, from thank you notes to business anniversary recognitions, every single day. Business owners often claim that they are too busy to send cards to every consumer that does business with them or sends referral business their way, but such a simple gesture can gain a customer’s loyalty for life.
The main reasons that people give for not sending more cards out are inconvenience, forgetfulness, and cost. The SendOutCards program eases each of those issues, making it unbelievably simple to stay in touch with others. Consumers can purchase entirely customized cards with a click of a button at less than a third of the retail cost of standard greeting cards. Account holders can also enjoy the benefit of an online contact manager that holds contact information and a calendar that stores important dates and even issues advance reminders to eradicate the risk of forgetting those dates.
Many business owners have found that relationship marketing, which is simply showing appreciation for a customer’s business, is the key to a successful business. Customers are much more likely to take notice and remember your name if they get a note of thanks in the mail than if their mailbox is cluttered with promotional marketing materials, which only annoys many consumers. Hughes says, “I can show professionals how to invest in this referral marketing system and end up with strong and lasting business relationships, an endless stream of referrals, and more business than they've ever dreamed possible.”
Not only can business owners grow their current businesses with the SendOutCards program, but being a distributor can be a business in its own right. By teaching others how to utilize the program, distributors can earn money while building a team of hard-working professionals. And getting ahead only requires a little hard work and dedication. After a mere six months as a SendOutCards distributor, Hughes was recently promoted to Manager. In her new role, Hughes is committed to teaching others how the amazing system can help improve their professional and personal relationships.
