Using Emails to Get Ready for the Holidays
November 25, 2016
The holiday season might be considered the most wonderful time of the year, but sometimes it feels like the most stressful time of the year. That’s why it’s vital to prepare early for the holiday season so that you can enjoy time with your family, sipping hot cocoa, and drinking in the holiday spirit. The first way to prepare for the holiday season is starting with your email.
1. Gift Customized Email Addresses to your Family and Friends
A customized email address is a great gift to express that you know someone well. You can create an email address that reflects the recipient’s interests and personality. When someone sends an email to this new address, the email is forwarded to whatever email account the user primarily utilizes. This allows the recipient of this gift to have a personalized email while keeping their same email provider. If you plan on creating a custom email address as a gift, let us know and we won’t send the recipient any notifications until you give the gift.
2. Email Your Holiday Cards
Sending your holiday cards through the postal service is expensive and time-consuming. You need to pay for printing the cards, postage and have to spend time packaging your cards. However, if you email your holiday card, you just need to send it as an attachment. Websites such as Smilebox allow you to easily create custom ecards that you can send to your friends and family and if you create a holiday-themed email address to send them from, it will likely make the recipient’s smile even bigger.
3. Email Holiday Party Invitations
Emailing invitations is much more efficient than mailing them or inviting people in person. Email allows invitations to arrive in seconds and attendees can RSVP with only a few clicks. Use a website such as Evite to invite people to your gathering and they can RSVP on the website.
4. Use a Custom Email to Receive Coupons
If you’re looking for an easy way to find bargains on holiday food and gifts, sign up for discounts on coupon websites using a customized email address. You can receive various deals on Groupon from jewelry to theme park discounts. If you’re looking for specials on food for a holiday meal, try CouponMom. Searching for great deals on holiday gifts? Woot has discounts on tons of items on your holiday list.
5. Use Holiday Themed Subject Lines
Using catchy holiday subject lines is a great way to show your friends and family that you’re in the holiday spirit and makes your emails eye catching. You can write something as simple as “Happy Holidays” or “Season’s Greetings.” However, you can also get creative and use puns. For instance, if you are planning on having a cookie decorating party, use a subject line like “Season’s Eatings.”
6. Make a Custom Email for the Holidays
If you want to be really festive, create a custom-made, holiday-themed email. This new email is sure to catch the attention of your friends and show your holiday spirit.
The holidays are just around the corner! Take the time now to prepare, starting with your email, so that you don’t feel stressed later on. Happy Holidays!
