Last year GroupCard had the privilege of working with the fine folks at Bills.com/Freedom Financial Network. The program was a huge success and today Brent Rickles passed along some very nice words about their results.
This year, we started sending GroupCards to our clients for various occasions. What I thought would be a simple client appreciation initiative turned out to be one of the biggest surprise successes of the 2009, creating an entirely new channel of positive interactions between us and our clients.
Every day we receive replies from clients thanking us for the GroupCard we sent them. “Thank you, you’re the best!”, “You all rock!” and “I can’t thank you all enough!” are just a few of the replies from clients that arrived in my inbox this morning.
The constant flow of these messages from our clients provides us with daily reminders of the positive impact our company has on our clients’ lives. We’ve even gained some new clients from current clients who have shown the GroupCard we sent them to a friend, who in turn came to us for services.
Without a doubt, GroupCards have been a grand slam of a success!

As we welcome our new users, we ask them where they found us. It’s amazing to see that friend/colleague referrals account for the vast majority of our new users.

Happy Testimonials keep us energized to keep making GroupCard better. This one just came in, and the story is such a real play-by-play of how special it is to send and receive a GroupCard.
Big thanks to Eric, Judy, and Rebecca for sharing…

The Group Card was a BIG SURPRISE for Rebecca. Before and during dinner she received some phone calls, all along asking “when she would hear from you”.
I mentioned 7 o’clock and she asked why seven. I told her it was a magical number. In no way did she understand what was to come.
The step by step process of receiving the card kept her in major suspense.
THE OUTCOME: AWESOME!!
WATCHING HER READING THE INDIVIDUAL NOTES WAS SUCH FUN. SHE COULD NOT BELIEVE THAT YOU HAD TAKEN THE TIME TO INDIVIDUALLY EMAIL FRIENDS AND FAMILY TO DO THIS!.
WHAT A NEAT WAY OF ENDING OUR BIRTHDAY DINNER CELEBRATION…
YOU TWO ARE THE BEST…………..

Efren “Kuya Ef” Peñaflorida grew up threatened and harrassed by ganges in his school in Cavite City. But by the time he was only 16 he created the Dynamic Teen Company – which now has over 10k members. This year Efren was named CNN Hero of the Year for all he did as an advocate of Filipino out-of-school youth.
Today, I was proud to discover that Efren’s supporters have started a GroupCard Congratulations Card for him! The card has been signed by hundreds of admirers and thankful signers around the world.

It’s always fun to do a monthly round-up and proclaim a record, even before the month is over!
It’s true, GroupCard had a really sizable month in terms of all metrics… including revenue, cards, users, and pageviews… Thanks to all our loyal users, and please keep in touch if there’s anything you think we should do to make November a record!
