What Should Christmas Greetings Have?
When sending a Christmas greeting, you want to send a message that conveys the intentions. Many people create Christmas messages, but when you take a message you received and forward it to others, people ignore it.
Thus, a creative Christmas greeting must contain the following elements:
Be Tailored for a Given Individual
When sending a greeting, you must make it for a given individual. When people receive a message, they want to feel it was for them and not for a crowd. Thus, it is a good habit to tailor it to a given individual.
Mentioning someone’s name is good to make a message look personal. When you do so, it is easy for the receiver to send a response.
Keep It Short
Most people don’t like reading long messages. Thus, you must ensure your message is short and straight to the point, so the receiver will not just open and ignore it for being too long.
