How much GOOD mail do you get these days?
When is the last time you got a cute postcard in the mail?
How many times have you meant to address an email only to find it buried (or never find it again?!)
I am a firm believer of Snail Mail Is Not Dead and I use it in many parts of my business.
When you are in the party plan business, your hostess is the most important person involved in the health and success of your business.
Those of us who do party plan for a living know that this relationship is crucial and we have key tasks to tackle from the time a hostess says YES to well beyond the end of her party. Show her you are excited about her upcoming event and committed to serving her by doing a few key communications from start to finish.
One of the first things I do immediately after a hostess goes on my calendar is send her a “Thanks! You Are Awesome” Postcard with her party date and time, my contact info, and a sincere thank you. I want to reminder her that she agreed to host, and I want to be able to get that party to stick by staying in touch, and if she should need to reschedule, the earlier this can happen, the better!
Many times I get to my parties and see these postcard on the fridge– they work!
If you are looking for a place to design your own postcards, check out Canva. I LOVE Canva.
I do anywhere from 8-12 parties a month, so as a timesaver I use Avery labels in many parts of my business. Avery Circle Label #22808 is featured on this postcard shown below.
So tell me party plan girls….. do you diversify your methods of communication with your hostess?
