Top 5 Reasons to Choose Digital Holiday Greetings from Curtis 1000

Let’s talk about how you can save hundreds of dollars while sending outstanding, tech-driven Holiday eCards that will engage your customers.

Yes, the planning season for eGreetings is in full swing, and we would like to count down the top 5 reasons our customers choose Curtis 1000’s Holiday eCard greetings:

Reason Number 5 

They can track results through measurable metrics, such as who opened the eCard, did they pass it on to someone else, and did it drive traffic to their Website?

Reason Number 4

They can reinforce their brand and build the customer relationship.

Reason Number 3

Time savings – it’s so much easier to click than order cards, pass them around the office to sign, seal, stamp and mail.

Reason Number 2

Because they want to upstage their competition.  They want to send a holiday message that is engaging, memorable and, yes, even entertaining.  They’re all about building that relationship, and if they can make their competition look less tech-savvy by sending an eGreeting, then that just about makes it perfect.  And it’s a green alternative to printed cards—never hurts to hug that tree. 

Reason Number 1 

Show them the money.  As our customers’ databases grow, the cost savings of a Holiday eCard automatically grows too.

Don’t forget to factor in postage!  With a database of 1,000 names, you could save ho-ho-hundreds of dollars.

Please visit our website to view our Holiday eCard collection and our new interactive designs. Then contact us for more information. We would love to help you with these fun greetings that all of your customers will be talking about!

Girl Scouts take multi-channel approach to communications

Multi-Channel Campaign Helps Nonprofit
Organization Collect Data for Promotions


The Girl Scouts of North East Ohio serves nearly 40,000 girls in grades K-12 and 14,000 adult members in 18 Ohio counties. The organization wanted to collect as much data as possible about the young, active Girl Scouts and adult volunteers in their district to best plan events, camps, and activities—and the communications to promote them. Information they were seeking from the scouts and volunteers included updated contact information, email addresses, ethnicity, hobbies/interests, languages spoken, special needs, and the willingness to volunteer. They especially wanted to determine the Hispanic presence in their district and whether any volunteers were bilingual. Secondarily, they wanted to promote their new camp guide and Operation Sweet Support.


Curtis 1000 helped design and implement
a two-component campaign to the
district’s girl scouts and adult volunteers,
consisting of an initial drop of 26,138
postcards with a personalized website.
Each postcard encouraged the recipient,
with an offer of a free tote, to visit their
personalized website to update their contact information and to give feedback. On their website, each recipient first saw a welcome page with a letter from the Girl Scouts of North East Ohio thanking them for visiting and expressing the survey objectives. The scout and adult volunteer in the household then proceeded to the survey. Each family member was able to complete an individual survey using the one personalized website address. After completing the survey, recipients were taken to the thank-you page, where they had the options of downloading the new camp guide and donating to Operation Sweet Support. All responses to the survey could be associated by name and family.


This campaign spanned three months and netted a great response: 2,659 people visited their personalized website (10% response) and 3,935 individuals completed the survey (15% completion rate). The completed survey rate is higher that the visit rate because multiple family members could each complete their own survey at the household website. Further analysis showed that, of the surveys completed, 44.3% were from adults and 55.7% from girls age 19 and younger. Another discovery was that 55.7% of respondents preferred email as the communication method, which could save the Girl Scouts of North East Ohio mailing costs in the future.
