The holy month of Ramadan started in May 2017 and marks the start of a month long of fasting and prayers for Muslims all around the world. It ends on the 25th of June 2017. This marks the celebration of Eid al-Fitr, which is the first day of the Islamic month of Shawwal.
This is a great time to start sending well wishes to customers/clients, business partners, friends and family. A few universal greetings to remember are:
- Ramadan/Eid Mubarak = Have a blessed Ramadan/Eid
- Ramadan/Eid Kareem = Have a generous Ramadan/Eid
There are also localized greetings in every other country. For example in Malaysia the two main greetings used during this festive season are:
- Selamat Berpuasa = Have a blessed fasting month
- Selamat Hari Raya = Have a blessed celebration
However if you are unsure, the general greeting works just fine.
The next question is, how do you want to send this greeting? Sending greeting cards the old fashion way works fine but sending an e-card just has so many upsides; much easier when sending to many people, can be personalized, cost effective and can be used as a marketing tool too by posting it on your social media accounts. The best part is you can send either a simple image e-card or a short video e-card to share your well wishes. Both options definitely stand out and gives you the ability to personalize it with your logo.
