CardKITs are H.O.P.E. – Helping Organizations Prosper… Effectively
retention & growth – a universal challenge
A principle objective of CardKIT.org is to help organizations grow, based on the simple premise that ALL organizations have the same fundamental goals: getting more people involved and having more money coming in. CardKITs can help groups accomplish these goals.
More members, volunteers, customers, donors = more dues, efforts, sales, donations.
In the case of clubs, associations, etc., they use their existing internal communications (newsletters, magazines, emails) to encourage all of their participants to purchase these unique and useful cards. By including the organization’s logo on the cards, along with their own photo and contact information, these cards enhance a person’s experience in three ways:
- By enabling them to easily keep in touch with people they meet
- By enabling them to help raise awareness of their organization
- By helping them support a worthy charity, foundation or cause

If an organization has a designated charity, foundation or worthy cause of their own, we will send $2 from every order requesting that group’s logo (quarterly, annually…) to an authorized person in the organization.
Businesses benefit from personal referrals. Many actually rely on them. The following bullet points are from a 2016 Nielsen’s Harris Poll:
- Word-of-mouth isn’t limited to specific industries (i.e., it’s not just for eCommerce brands) or demographics, but certain age groups and income levels do rely more on referrals
- The vast majority (more than 80%) of Americans seek recommendations when making a purchase of any kind
- When someone shares or talks about a brand on social media, there’s a significant correlation to purchasing behavior
- Incentive structure plays a big role in increasing and scaling referral activity
That’s just a sampling of the findings, but the general conclusion from the study was clear. Referrals don’t just help us make decisions. Often times, they’re the primary driver of them.*
RV & Car Dealers, Travel Agents, Real Estate Agents, Financial Planners, Personal Trainers, Home Renovators, etc. can now give CardKITs as a “Thank-You” gift to their customers (instead of, or as well as, gift cards or logo’d apparel). These cards are powerful conversation starters, with a color photo of a company representative passing keys or tickets to their customers in front of a new home, car, RV… or a cruise ship poster! No one should go on a cruise, tour or resort vacation without being given a CardKIT to take along.
For about what a lunch out would cost, businesses can look forward to having up to 72 cards given out, with their color logo on the front and 3 lines of text on the backs. These will be seen by many people, very often with the same interests and in the same community. The conversations about why the logo is there will prompt endorsements and referrals. As a “Thank You for your business” gift, CardKITs will deliver higher marketing value for money spent than, for example, a gift card which will be seen by no one but the person who’s already a customer and will NOT generate any referrals.

Helping Individuals meet, connect & keep in touch
“A great paradox of our hyper-connected digital age is that we seem to be drifting apart. Increasingly, however, research confirms our deepest intuition: Human connection lies at the heart of human well-being. It’s up to all of us — doctors, patients, neighborhoods and communities — to maintain bonds where they’re fading, and create ones where they haven’t existed.” *

We meet people, we connect with them and we want to keep in touch, but an address on a scrap of paper is easily lost. These cards, the same size as a business card, have a color picture to make it easier for new friends to remember us, so they are more likely to be saved. The front of each card has a coated, glossy finish for bright color photos, while the back is uncoated, leaving a matte finish suitable for pencil or pen.
Clicking on “Create a CardKIT” will take you to an easy-to-use template where you can upload your photo, add your contact information and mailing address, proof-read it (carefully) and order a CardKIT of your own.
