I love technology. It's made it possible for marketers to fine-tune their marketing strategies, meaning less wasted budget and fewer aggravated “non-customers.” It's made graphic design faster and easier than ever. It's made supply chains more efficient. All of these things converge to help you out if you need to promote a sale, event or party in a flash.
Say an event of national importance happens and your business can take advantage of it. If you were a car salesperson, Cash for Clunkers would be an example. So, the government comes out and says “OK, Cash for Clunkers is approved. The program begins in one week.” You want to have a big event to attract new customers before your competitors do, but you only have seven days to do it. Online invitation cards save the day! Here's how to do it fast. Get a graphic designer on the phone. If you don't have one in-house, order a rush job from a proven provider from Elance, ODesk, or another freelance website. Say you need an invitation card design within 24 hours. Alternatively, you can find a free invitation card template and simply fill in the information yourself. Since invitation cards can be printed through online printing companies such as PsPrint, you can choose features such as one-day production turnaround and first-class mailing services. Altogether, your online invitation cards can be designed, printed and delivered to your mailing list in three to seven days – just in time to cut the competition down and bring all the customers to your door. Ten years ago, this would have been no small feat for a small business to pull off. Today, a single person can launch an incredibly well-targeted, highly-successful direct-mail marketing campaign in a matter of hours with online invitation cards. Isn't technology great?
