February is upon us, and love is in the air. This is a month where we often think about hearts, flowers, and Valentine’s Day plans. It’s also a great time to think about showing the love and appreciation we have for our clients. Why not? While we’re in the spirit, try these ideas for simple, meaningful ways you can show your clients how much they truly mean to you.
Pick Up The Phone
Taking a moment to pick up the phone and call your clients is an inexpensive way for you to show your appreciation. These are the type of calls that often get made on birthdays or the anniversary of starting a business, those dates we have saved on our calendar. A call out of the blue can really help though. We feel more appreciated when that little extra effort is made, and this is a great way to do it.
Or Write It Down
Phone calls can take more time than we’d like sometimes, so an alternative is to write a thank-you note. A handwritten note shows a nice touch of effort with a bit of personalization. You can either send the note in the mail or drop it off in person to add an extra touch. Whatever you choose, this is a great way to let someone know they are more than just a number to you.
Offer a Discount
Your clients have voted for you with their wallets. They’ve supported your business by patronizing it and helping you grow. Why not take a moment and offer them a discount on services as a thank you? A special code, a promo item, or a discounted rate for loyalty are all great ways to financially show someone you’re grateful for their faith in you. It also helps them know you want them to continue their business with you too.
Send them Referrals
This is the gift that keeps on giving. Let’s face it; your clients have kept your business running. They’ve probably even referred some business your way. So why not send them some referrals as a way to say thank you? Take the time to consider your network and whom they might be able to truly help. Then sit down and make the introduction in the best way, whether that’s email, phone, or whatever else comes to mind. Show them you appreciate them by investing in their success like they invested in yours. After all, love is in the air!
