Every year, companies, freelancers and self-employed people face the "Christmas question": should you contact customers and partners on the occasion of Christmas? And if so, how?

Showing emotional connection
A Christmas letter or greeting card is generally not promotional in nature. By conveying good wishes with beautifully designed Christmas mail and taking the opportunity to thank customers and business partners for their good cooperation, a company demonstrates a special bond with the respective recipient that goes beyond the purely business level. This, in turn, also strengthens the business connection.
Liven up contact
Communication thrives on occasions - and Christmas is an excellent communication occasion. With Christmas greetings, companies can bring themselves back to the memory of customers who have recently been less active or with whom contact has somewhat "fallen asleep."
"Small" customers appreciate
In particular, those customers who are not major revenue generators can be conveyed through Christmas mail that they are nevertheless valued as business partners. And also new customers, who ordered only once, feel accepted and estimated by Christmas post office.
Phrasing business Christmas greetings in such a way that they sound neither forced nor stilted is not so easy. If you then want to combine a business message with the greetings - for example, if you also want to thank customers and suppliers for the good cooperation in the past year - it becomes even more difficult.
In principle, it is advisable to formulate greeting card texts as simply as possible. Long-winded sentences such as "We would like to wish all our customers a Happy Christmas and at the same time thank you for the trust you have placed in us" are bad for several reasons. On the one hand, they seem due to the formal style of language almost like a farewell formulation, and on the other hand, the use of auxiliary verbs such as "would like to" casts doubt on a genuine greeting. Better is a short formulation and a concrete statement: "We say THANK YOU for your trust and wish you a blessed Christmas and a happy new year."
