Re: Social Media vs. Postcards

Technology has made many changes to our habits and lifestyles.


In my experience, I find that age has a lot to do with some of these new behaviors.


Surveying my older clients, I find that they do still use postcards when they travel. Other than checking in with their family via internet to make sure all is OK, they would rather be enjoying the experience personally.


Many marketers ignore this demographic of individuals with disposable income who rely upon their tried and true habits.


Wishing you awesome and continuing success,
