You Have The Power

“Make someone smile whenever you can, you never know how much of a difference you could be making in their life at that moment.”—Anonymous 

smile 2Nothing in this world is more powerful than a smile. It’s nearly effortless for the person smiling but the impact a smile can have on someone is undeniably powerful. They are mood boosters, feeling soothers and friend makers. This simple expression we do on a daily basis carries the ability to uplift and change the course of a day.

Many people do not realize the power of a smile. It can work like magic, it can heal emotional pain and it can remove physical pain. When you smile at another person you not only let them feel that they are wanted, accepted and appreciated, but you also give encouragement as well.

We all know how much fun laughing can be; it’s a belly-aching good time! Imagine that same elated feeling of happiness in an instant facial expression. It surges through your body, giving you the same joy you gain when laughing and having a good time.

smile

One simple smile has the power to calm fear, insecurity, hurt and anxiety. It has the power to change the world because smiles can be shared free! It’s the emotion that keeps on giving. When you smile at another person you pass all the wonderful benefits of smiling on to that person, and in turn they are more likely to pass that smile on to someone else.

“Making one person smile can change the world, maybe not the whole world, but their world. Start small. Start now.”—Anonymous

smile3Try it. Tilt up the corner of your lips at someone on the street and the odds are you will make that person grin back at you…and when they smile back, they too will feel a wave of happiness. It puts pep in your step and can make you realize how wonderful the world truly is.

 We all know what it feels like to open the mailbox and see a card in there. A smile leaps and bounds across your face. That feeling is amplified every time you send someone a card or a sweet gift in the mail. Not only are you full of love when sending, the recipient it overjoyed when they see how much you care, and yet again a smile takes place on another face.

 You have the power within you to change attitudes and to change lives, yet all you have to do is smile. Take the happiness challenge today and vow to smile as often as you can. Imagine how great you will feel throughout your day by doing this. Imagine the contagiousness of this challenge. Wouldn’t it be nice to see more and more people smiling on the street, feeling cared for and full of happiness? We truly can change lives one card, one gift and one smile at a time.

Sendcere Card Sharing Through Social Media

We recently added social sharing capability to Sendcere in the form of share buttons to your card collection pages. Once you build a card you can collect it to Sendcere and then conveniently share it to your Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Google + accounts. You can even send a link to your card directly to someone’s email.

We have made it very convenient for your social media friends to instantly set up a Sendcere/SOC account and send your shared card or any card they find on Sendcere. They can set up an account with their email address as their username and a password of their choice. They can also purchase cards one at a time for $1.98 with their credit card.

We will soon be adding a new feature that will allow your social media friends the ability to send their first card from Sendcere for free. These free cards will come from social card sharing kits that SendOutCards distributors can purchase. This ultimately will give SOC distributors the reach and exposure to potentially have hundreds of their friends sample SendOutCards.

So what kind of cards should you share?

You want to share a card that your social media friends would want and need to immediately send. The most common types of cards that are in high demand are: Thank You cards, Gratitude cards, Nice to Meet You cards, Next Step cards, Thinking of You cards, and Birthday cards.

Imagine scrolling through your news-feed on Facebook. What type of greeting card and post would get your attention? What kind of greeting card would you see yourself needing to send?

With this in mind, I have written some suggested social media posts that will get the attention of your social media friends. I have also included examples of cards you might share with these posts:  Keep in mind, when you share a post with a greeting card, there is always a caption below the card that says: 

This is a real card (not an e-card) shared from Sendcere.

Have You Sent a Greeting Card Lately?

Card from Sendcere, created by Jane Taylor

When was the last time you sent a “Get Well Soon” card to an ailing friend? Make that time now and drop a line to cheer them up, or better yet, send them an unexpected sentiment in the mail that is sure to brighten their day.

Sending a “Romantic Card” can be tough. Looking for the perfect message amongst the piles of cards stocked on the shelves to tell your loved one how special they are is a task in itself. Take the time to sit down and create a card laced with your special message that has all the aesthetics you desire and that you know your sweetheart deserves.

Do you know when your friend’s birthdays are? If not, it’s probably time to update your contacts so you are never to miss an occasion again. Be the person who sends cards ahead of time. Don’t miss out on sharing your gratitude towards that special person. Nothing puts a smile on a face faster than a piece of mail that expresses love, thought and makes that person feel unique.

Have you ever sat down to browse through the number of festivals and holidays that are being celebrated? What about the number of greeting cards for every emotion a human being can feel? If you haven’t, then you should.

It was so great to see our fellow SOC family actively engaged in the live webinar and posting selfies with their teams, kids, cats, dogs, boats, friends and even flying solo… those were the ultimate selfies
