Subject : 50 ways to thank your clients
One of the foundational pillars of designing an abundant business is being in a state of gratitude for what you have: recognizing the good in your business and giving thanks to your clients.
Besides earning major karma points and getting a warm fuzzy feeling for doing something good, thanking your clients can also count as a marketing touch. When you say thanks you create an opportunity to have a heart connection with your clients and thus deepen the relationship.
Recently, I've challanged some of my coaching clients to strive for a more intentional state of gratitude with their clients. We focused on being more active and paying more attention to the way they thank and appreciate their clients.
Being in a state of gratitude is not easy for most business owners. When we're not actively recognizing the good we tend to see what's missing, what's wrong and what we don't have. We live in a culture that thrives on bad news and worry, so paying attention to what's working doesn't appear on our radar.
Just like any other marketing activity that must be practiced on a regular basis, giving thanks and being in gratitude is also a practice. Point your radar at all the good your clients have brought to your life and your business and make a deeper human connection by saying thanks. Do this on a regular basis and watch how your business gets into a beautiful flow of giving and receiving from your clients.
You don't need a special occasion to say thank you. Sometimes random moments are the best. A heartfelt letter (or email) telling your client how much you appreciate working with them, how they help your business grow and how much you enjoy the creative challenges you get from them will bring a smile to their faces and make them only want to give you more work.
And if you're too shy to write that letter (but trust me, it works) here are 50 more ideas you can do to say thanks.
