It’s coming up to that wonderful time of year! Are you starting to feel all warm and fuzzy for the Christmas season or feeling the stress weighing you down as you finish off everything that needs to be done for the year, on top of trying to show your clients some Christmas love? It’s tough, we know!
A Virtual Assistant can help you get through this exciting, but stressful time by helping you manage the Christmas rush to show your appreciation and loyalty to your clients!
Christmas is all about sharing the love!
Sharing kindness and love is the very essence of Christmas! It not only makes those around you feel appreciated, it also puts a smile on their face. During this time of the year, it’s important to send thanks to your clients, and to take the time to gift them something special. Here are some of the tasks your Virtual Assistant can do to make your clients smile.
1. Personalised cards
Sending a typical, automated card, takes away from the personal connection you have with your clients. That’s why making a personalised card that includes something about them, will not just show the bond you both share, but they will want to keep it forever!
Your Virtual Assistant can:
- Create lists of clients and their delivery addresses
- Source images for the cards to personalise the front and back
- Write a nice message
- Organise the delivery of the cards once approved by you
To make the card as personal as possible, you can personalise their name or source a photo of them or their family to place on the front of the card by using sites like SendOutCards.
Personalised cards will make a huge difference!
2. Montage video
Your Virtual Assistant can put together a collection of all the achievements and happy memories from the year with your clients in a montage video. That will make their day!
The best part is that nowadays, you don’t necessarily have to be a video editor to put a montage video together. Your VA can use tools, such as Canva and Biteable, which can assist in editing videos using their templates.
If you want to make your clients laugh their heads off, creating personalised eCards with hilarious videos and animations is the way to go!
All your Virtual Assistant has to do is create an account with a site like JibJab, upload images of your face or your client’s face and it will create a personalised video of your faces dancing away! There are hundreds of different eCard options, so there’s one for every occasion.
4. Surprise gift delivery
We all love surprises! So why not ask your virtual assistant to look into your client’s interests and organise a suitable gift to surprise them for Christmas.
For example, if they’re a thrill-seeker, who loves experiences, you can get them the experience gift from Red Balloon or if they love reading, get them a gift voucher for a Kindle book. There are so many options!
5. Updating clients on holiday hours
During this holiday period, every business’ trading hours change, allowing employees to spend time with their families. Therefore, your clients may be unaware of these changes, so your virtual assistant must update your clients on your Christmas and New Year trading hours.
This can be done through updating your social media channels, your website information, autoresponders, calendar, reminders and more.
