In the 21st century, many people are using all kinds of technological advances. With the advancement of the internet and more households buying computers, the internet is one of the main way that people communicate today. According to an internet demographics survey done in December of 2006, the total percentage of adults that used the internet was 70%. 69% of women used the internet while 71% of men logged onto the internet. 83% of internet users were between the ages of 18-29 and 82% of users were between the ages of 30-49.
It’s common that most of these people will have their own personal email address. Millions of emails are sent out daily, and most email users commonly email their friends and family throughout the day or week. It is easier to also communicate through email than the old fashioned way such as “snail mail” or as we know it, the United States Postal Service. With the rising rates of the average postage stamp, more and more people are turning to free email accounts. The cost to send out invitations are more expensive, and others will look for more cost effective and affordable ways to send correspondence and invitations for parties, weddings, and other kinds of family functions.
It’s not out of the ordinary to see that most party invitations these days have an email address in which you can reply your R.S.V.P to. Party guests find it quicker and easier to reply to an email than to send out a postage card. This is why many internet users are turning to ecards and email to send out invitations for parties and weddings. While it’s easier to send out ecards or email invitations, there are some tips that users should keep in mind before emailing their invites to the guests.
First of all, when planning your party, it’s a good way to personalize your return email address according to the type of party that you are giving. If it’s a wedding, you could personalize according to the bride and groom’s name, or if it’s a birthday party, you could name it with the person’s birthday and the year. This way, it makes it easier to remember for your guests. Also, if you haven’t’ already established a mailing list with family and friends, it’s a good time to start one. Contact all of your guests to obtain their correct email addresses and information. Most ecard websites will allow you to log in to your personal email account address books.
Before you send out all of your ecards, it’s a good idea to research your greeting card websites. There are a variety of ecard websites on the internet and it’s easy to get overwhelmed by all of the types of ecards that they are. Find one that works with your personal email account, and one that offers the types of cards that appeal to your type of party that you plan on having. Some great places to start are BlueMountain.com , Hallmark Ecards, and 123Greetings.com,
Those are some of the top Ecards websites that are easy and user friendly. Once you begin sending out your ecards to all of your guests, you may want to write down each person’s name in a notebook or type it out in your word processor. As you receive a reply from each guest, you can place a mark next to their name. This will make it easier to keep an ongoing count of the number of guests who are attending your function.
Sending ecards is user-friendly for all of your guests. People are busy in this technological age, and the idea of taking pen to paper seems to be fading fast. While you may find it simple, these tips listed above are good to keep in mind. All it takes is having correct email addresses and an easy to use ecard website. After that, you just wait for your guests to respond, and of course, it’s time to party.
