With Thanksgiving right around the corner, and the joy and celebration of Christmas right behind it, mot people tend to get in a festive and thankful mood this time of the year.
Even if you aren’t in this camp, you still need to make sure that you use this time of the year to let your clients know that you are thankful for them. It’s the perfect time of year to truly standout; most businesses forget about Thanksgiving and wait until Christmas—just like everyone else.
So this year, separate yourself from your competitors by letting your clients know how much they mean to you and the success of your business. Here are a few ideas for you:
- Contact your most important clients and let them know you’d like to have lunch with them (knowing that you will be footing the bill). Take the opportunity to let them know how important they are to your business and how you can help them in the future.
- Send a basic Thank You card. Maybe even include a small voucher for a discount.
- Consider giving them a gift of some kind, even if it’s as simple as a pen. Anything that is sent with a heartfelt “thank you” is always appreciated.
- A step beyond y clients and think about your community at large. This is a great way to show the community that your brand is thankful for what you have and that you like to give back from time to time. Participate in a local Toy for Tots campaign or come up with your own. Perhaps consider giving a portion of your proceeds to a local charity for the month of November.
Do you have any other ideas as to how a business can give thanks to their clients in a way that isn’t already saturated by Christmas?
