This post today is by Anastasiya Day – Owner and Founder of AD Virtual Assistant LTD. Editor’s note: Mailing a card at all times in business is a great idea, even when conducting a job search.
Are you sending gratitude cards to your clients? If not – Why not?
In today’s article, I would like to talk about “Thank You Cards”. I know that not a lot of entrepreneurs or business owners send the cards. But as we all know a thank you goes a long way. You can send different cards it could be thanks for new business, for a referral or simply just to say “Hi, I hope you are well”.
By sending a “Thank You Card” you basically show your appreciation to your clients or people who are supporting you. I personally send these cards to my clients, when I finish working on a specific project. You can send appreciation cards every season – Christmas and New Year, Easter, Bank Holidays etc. Nowadays we receive a lot of emails and leaflets on different services, which is great but I personally think that entrepreneurs and business owners should send more appreciation cards too.
Even if you don’t have any business dealings with a prospect yet, you still can use these cards to build a relationship with them and let them know that you value their relationship – be supportive, stay in touch with them and grow your referral network.
Every other week, I also post thank you notes on my facebook fan page and twitter to show my followers and fans that I appreciate them. I always thank them for taking the time to come and visit our page and comment on my notes, posts etc. I know how busy we are on a daily basis, running not only the business but also looking after the family and for them to find the time to come and comment on what we do – I’m thankful.
As we all know it is the thought that counts and it is important to show your clients that you care about them. I just want to encourage you to take the time and to send “Thank You” cards and you can also send small gifts.
Timing Is Everything
We are all very different and sometimes when you say something we don’t know how this will resonate with other people. And it could be that when they receive your card it will be just the right time for them. So stay in touch with your audience.
