Everyone loves getting things in the mail. Especially children who are waiting for letters from Santa Clause, Easter Bunny or Tooth Fairy. Can you remember what it felt like when you were a child to receive something in the mail?
In this digital age, getting email or a private message is normal. But getting something tangible is becoming very rare. Imagine all the joy and excitement of getting mail, and combine that with holiday characters: Personalized letters from Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny or Tooth Fairy.
Getting Started with Your Holiday Letters BizFirst off, you'll need to decide which holidays you want to offer personalized letters for. Do you want to do Christmas only? Or do you want to offer letters for other holidays.
Next, decide where you will find your target market. You can work online exclusively, offline exclusively, or both. Having an online set up for your Holiday letters business will increase your profits and make it easier for customers to pay and to make repeat sales. You will also need to decide how you are going to send out your personalized letters from Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny.
