Sending a simple “thank you” can go a long way in creating a strong connection with your clients.
It’s incredible how far a “thank you” can take you when it comes to your clients. Customers spend more, and vendors are more likely to pay on time if they receive a regular thank you. But when it comes to showing your appreciation towards your clients for their business, it can be tough to find a balance between staying professional and creating a personal connection. Simply saying “thank you,” doesn’t feel like it’s enough, especially for those clients with whom you hold in high regard. Here are a few tips on how you can thank your clients in a unique fashion and hold professional integrity while creating a personal connection.
Send a Personalized Gift
Everyone loves getting gifts, and that includes your customers. If you want your “thank you” to be unique, make sure to think outside the box. Here are a few ideas you can use to spark some inspiration:
- Coffee mug
- Wine glasses
- Beer mugs
- Gift basket with favorite treats (e.g. brownies, fruit, et cetera)
- Leather-bound journal
- Bottle of their favorite wine or spirit
Write a Handwritten Note
There may be no better way to let your clients know how personal your “thank you” is other than writing a handwritten letter. It signals to them that you took time out of our day to foster this relationship. When crafting your letter, stay focused and be specific. Find a way to say how their business has influenced you and your business, and include details of the relationship you both have fostered. This personalized letter will make your message more meaningful and will increase their motivation to work with you again.
