Hands-On Hello

Interactive invites and greeting cards enhance social exchanges
Implications - Consumers today are often so distracted that if something isn't engaging, it's often ignored. This applies to things like invitations and greeting cards -- the more interesting and interactive they are, the better. As such, many people are going all out when it comes to creating a unique wedding invitation or greeting. From word searches to scannable cards and those that are scented for effect, the number of interactive and engaging communication methods is increasing. And while this particular trend relates to consumer-to-consumer exchanges, a better understanding of the impact of interactivity is something from which all marketers can benefit.
