e- Christmas Cards for law firms
Thank you for your interests in our e- Christmas Cards for law firms service. On this page, you will find our how we manage and deliver the entire process for you. The whole process is very straight forward. Here’s what’s involved:
Select your video or image
The first stage in this process is the selection of the video or image you’ll use in your e- Christmas Card. You can choose from the selection available from our e- Christmas Cards for law firms page. If you haven’t yet visited that page, please click here to go there now.
In the case of a video, we’ll need your firm’s logo to add to the end of the video. It is also possible to change the words in some of the videos. Send us a note of your changes. We’ll then commission the changes and send you an updated version of your video for your review. Of course, if you have your own Christmas video (and some of our clients have prepared some superb videos over the years) you can certainly use that!
Using an image
We’ve only included a small selection of images you can use in your e- Christmas Card. If you wish to view the wide selection available, please visit 123rf.com and type Christmas Card or Christmas Scene into the search box. Browse the images and select the one you want to use. Email us with the number and we’ll purchase and download it for you. If you have your own image you’d prefer to use, we’ll be delighted to include that for you.
Creating your e- Christmas Card
Once you’ve selected your video or image, we’ll start work on customising your e- Christmas Card. Each e- Christmas Card includes an image from your selected video or the image you’ve selected along with a Festive Greeting. Please note, if you’re using video, it won’t play in the email but is used as a link to the location the video is hosted. We discuss video hosting below.
Once we’ve created your e- Christmas Card, we’ll send you a Proof for your review.
Here are some samples of how your e- Christmas Card might look:

If you’re using video, we recommend that you embed the video on your website. We can advise on how best to do this. We can host the video as a private video on the Client Communications Vimeo Channel and provide an embed code to enable the video to display on your website. This avoids potential streaming and speed issues when the video is embedded in your website.
If you can’t load the video onto your website, we’re happy to host this as a private video on the Client Communications Vimeo Channel. That means you can only access it through the link in your e- Christmas Card.
Whether you host your video on your own website or on the Client Communications Vimeo Channel, a link will be inserted into your e- Christmas Card to enable your clients to click on the link and view the video.
Sending to clients
Clearly, once your e- Christmas Card has been prepared, you’ll want to send it to your clients. To do this you’ll need an email list. If you have your own email list and an email marketing account like MailChimp, we’ll provide you with the video and you can send it yourself.
We’re happy to help send out your e- Christmas Card on your behalf. We use the same methodolgy as we use when sending eNewsletters for our clients.
To do this, the most basic details we need are the first and last names of the recipient along with their email addresses. A title is useful too. We recommend that these are exported from your practice management or CRM system. If you don’t store client and contact email addresses in your practice management system, we can help you mine Outlook to find these.
Once your email list has been created, you’re now ready to send your e- Christmas Card to your clients.
If you need our help to create your client email list, please speak to us about this as soon as possible.
