At Thanksgiving time, we usually reflect on how much we appreciate our family, friends, and the loved ones in our lives, but as a business owner, I find myself adding my clients to my gratitude list. As a Business and Marketing coach, I am truly grateful to my clients who have touched me both personally and professionally.
As we know, a company is only as good as its owner, so work must be done not only on a revenue/productivity level, but also on a personal level. The relationships I have acquired through my business require trust and sharing and I appreciate them greatly.
This Thanksgiving, I am looking back at a prosperous year with true gratitude to my clients who helped to make this happen. We all work very hard to have successful businesses and I thought I would share with you some ideas to demonstrate gratitude to our clients and colleagues:
Referrals: Our intimate knowledge of each other’s expertise can be appreciated by giving a referral! Talk about each other. There is no better referral than word of mouth.
Testimonials: I know we are busy, but finding the time write a testimonial is enormously helpful. Once received, they can be used on all of our marketing collateral, including our most important websites.
Social Sharing: There are simple things we can do on social media — post on our clients’ accounts, share their newsletters, share their posts, and equally ask for a share.
I am grateful for the opportunity to work with so many smart, talented people and for the chance to be a part of their journeys.
Thanksgiving is the perfect time to pause and think about how your clients have touched your life and be thankful for them.
Have a beautiful, gratitude-filled Thanksgiving holiday!
With Warm Regards,
