Surprise Newcomer Wins by a Landslide
About.com announced that VerveCards.com is the winner of its Readers’ Choice Award for Best Ecard Site 2011. VerveCards, a relative newcomer, captured 90.65% of the votes, while industry giants, Jacquie Lawson, 123 Greetings, American Greetings and Hallmark received 4.96%, 2.10%, 1.34% and 0.95%, respectively.
VerveCards.com is a boutique ecard site with glorious color, vibrant design, ingenious wit — and no scary links. With VerveCards’ unique linkless format, ecards are embedded in the recipient’s email for instant viewing. No links, no virus risk, no waiting — and, the recipient can write back to the sender simply by hitting Reply. These distinguishing features are what set VerveCards apart.
Clicking an unknown link in a notification email poses a virus risk. Some folks simply won’t do it, so an ecard sender’s thoughtfulness could go ignored. Over the years, reputable ecard sites, such as Blue Mountain, American Greetings and, most recently, Hallmark have fallen victim to virus hoaxes. Bogus notification emails with a link to a rogue site have caused unsuspecting recipients to download malware.
“Any ecard site that links to a host site for ecard retrieval is vulnerable to attack,” explains VerveCards CEO/Co-Founder, Nancy Rielle. “Our linkless format solves that problem. We’re grateful to About.com for this award, so we can reach more ecard users and eliminate their fear.”
VerveCards was founded in 2008 by Nancy Rielle, a copywriter, marketing consultant, and former fine artist/painter, and her cousin/Co-Founder, Leigh Copin, a graphic designer. When an ill-fated search for a decent ecard uncovered slim pickings, they created “wry and snappy – never sappy” ecards for savvy senders like themselves.
VerveCards’ vibrant design, ingenious wit, and unique linkless format provide a quick, quality, secure ecard experience. A flat annual fee for unlimited sending makes these eco-friendly greetings money-saving and time-saving, as well. Set-it-then-forget-it future scheduling – or the freedom to send at the very last second mean important dates are never missed.
