We’re all grateful for our customers. They are the lifeblood of our companies, the fuel to our fire, the engine that keeps us going. As Thanksgiving grows near, it’s a good time to reflect on those that have given us so much. 🦃
Need ideas? Here are 5 thoughtful ways to show them your gratitude:
1. Write a handwritten note.
In today’s age of electronic everything, the fact that you took the time out of your day to hand write a thank you letter for someone truly shows that you care. It may seem old-fashioned, but a handwritten note still comes across as a thoughtful, poignant gift. It’s simple, easy, and effective.
2. Send a personalized gift or gift basket.
Along that same line, a personalized gift or gift basket goes over well. Flowers, chocolates, and other goodies are nice gestures, but be sure to know your customers’ allergies or dietary needs. The last thing you want to do is send them something they can’t fully enjoy.
3. Reward them on social media.
Do you have a follower or followers that consistently respond or reach out to you? Make them feel special by rewarding their engagement: give them points for commenting, sharing posts, and even leaving a review. A special gift for so many points is sure to inspire followers!
4. Have B2B customers? Refer them!
Nothing shows more appreciation to another business than a warmhearted referral. They also go a long way towards new business for your customer, which helps elevate your relationship with them as well. If you can’t refer, at the very least, leave a nice, thorough review of your customer’s business online.
5. Offer a great deal or special upgrade.
Have you had your current customers for a while? Offer them a special discount code or upgrade part of their purchase for free. The surprise will surely be well-received.
These are just a few ways to show gratitude to your customers.
