How To Express Gratitude In Business
At Thanksgiving time, we often reflect on how much we appreciate our family, friends, and loved ones in our lives, but as a business owner, I find myself adding my clients to my gratitude list. As a Business and Communication Strategist, I am genuinely grateful to my clients who have touched me personally and professionally.
As we know, a company is only as good as its owner, so work must be done on a revenue/productivity level and 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 client’s accounts, share their newsletters, share their posts, and equally ask for a share.
I am grateful for the opportunity to work with so many intelligent, talented people and for the chance to be a part of their journeys.
Thanksgiving is the perfect time to pause, consider how your clients have touched your life, and be thankful for them.
