It’s the busiest time of year for millions of assistants around the world with dozens of extra tasks this month, most notably the dreaded – er “exciting” holiday card mailing for their managers. This is a busy season for RedCape as well because we’re one of the first people you call when you need help. So this year, I’ve compiled a list of resources to help you get those holiday cards out the door fast and error free!
#1 (Free) 70-Minute On Demand Webinar: “5 Timesaving secrets of Mail Merge”
In this webinar I walk through my favorite timesaving tips when performing Mail Merge on PC & Mac. One of my examples is the holiday card mailing.
Length: 40-minutes of training PLUS 30-minutes of Q&A with attendees. Get access to the free session and find out how you can even train your entire team!
#2 (Free) 11-Minute YouTube Video: “Create name tags using the Mail Merge feature in Microsoft Word”
Only have a few minutes to learn some tips? In my most popular YouTube video, learn how to effortlessly create name badges. But what does that have to do with holiday cards? Answer: a ton! Name tags are essentially a version of a mailing label. So use these same steps for creating mailing labels for your holiday cards as you would name tags! https://youtu.be/qneeq9rCADQ

#3 Mail Merge Boot Camp (On Demand)
The intensive 3-part Boot Camp is for you if you have mailings that require data clean up, advanced filtering and streamlined process to make it easier each year. We also walk through all types of mail merge scenarios such as name badges, table tent cards (you won’t believe the trick to get names on the front and back), personalized email messages, letters, and more! If you truly want to master the process so that you can save time each year and reduce errors, invest in the Boot Camp for your learning library to access anytime, anyplace. It’s like having me right there with you all year ’round. Get more info
Boot Camp students get free access to my live Office Hours session on December 9th. See #4 below.
