Holiday greetings!
Posted 11/26/2012 7:51:00 AM

Well, there it is. I've just sent all the holiday greetings I need to. Or not.

Depending on who you ask, holiday greeting cards are either completely unnecessary, or still very much worth the effort. For friends, a Facebook message or online card is probably all that's expected nowadays. Family members - particularly those who live out of state - will still enjoy seeing the updated family photograph and a couple of lines about what's happened since last holiday season (a day-to-day journal is a bit more than needed).

The one place where sending traditional holiday greeting cards is still recommended? At the office.

According to experts at Allison & Taylor, sending a traditional greeting card to your boss, co-workers and other business contacts is a great way to network. It's a positive form of contact, where you're giving, but asking for nothing in return. The card is also a tangible reminder of you - and will keep you top-of-mind for as long as the card remains standing on a desk, taped to a credenza or posted on a bulletin board.

Some guidelines to remember if you're going to network with holiday cards:

Be sure the card is appropriate for the person to whom you're sending. That includes being aware of the person's religious background, and whether they prefer cards with a serious or humorous tone.

Sign each card personally and include a brief greeting.

Check the spelling of your contact's name. Misspelling someone's name, or putting the incorrect job title on the envelope is a sure way to be remembered - for the wrong reasons!

"Happy holidays, hope you've had a wonderful year, and look forward to seeing you soon!" - ellen
