Have you ever felt that your business doesn’t show enough appreciation to your clients? It’s not just good manners to say thank you, it’s also good business sense. When you show your clients that you appreciate their business and are thankful they chose you over your competitors, they are more likely to come back and continue doing business with you in the future. It’s also helpful to send them cards whenever they have a special event coming up, like a birthday or wedding, or when they do something special like refer new customers to you or provide valuable feedback on your products or services.
How many times should I send a card?
I know some may think that sending thank you cards is something we only do when someone gives us a gift. However, it’s important to keep in touch with your clients throughout the year. Sending them a card on their birthday, or just thanking them for their continued business can go a long way.
When is the best time to send cards?
Why thank-you cards are important and when you should send them. If you’re sending a thank-you card, you want to be sure it makes an impact. Consider sending it out as close as possible (but no earlier than) the next business day after your client has received their gift; if they receive it on Monday, let them know how much you appreciate their business on Tuesday at their office or by email if they’re not in that day.
Who should I send them to?
Now that you’ve come up with a wonderful idea for your thank-you cards, you need to decide who exactly should receive them. First, think about all of your clients and remember that you’re doing all of them a huge favor by sending them thank-you cards. It costs little money, but it goes a long way in terms of building rapport and showing appreciation. Make sure everyone gets one—no matter how small or large they are!
What should I write in my card?
Personalized thank you cards are a great way to express gratitude for business relationships and customer service. This can be as simple as a handwritten note or as formal as you’d like it to be. Regardless of how formal or informal your thank you note is, don’t forget about addressing it! Be sure that your card is both personal and professional.
Do thank you cards matter?
If you’re in business, it doesn’t matter how big or small, you should be sending out thank you cards. It shows your customer that you truly care about their business and not just all about making a quick buck. For some businesses it might seem like an unnecessary cost but if you consider yourself a professional then keeping in touch with clients through thank-you cards shouldn’t be optional!
Where can I get thank you cards?
If you don’t have any of your own, there are plenty of places you can get custom business thank you cards printed. I love Minted; it has some really beautiful designs and is easy to navigate. Other sites include Wedding Paper Divas, Noteworthy Papers and more. If none of these sites suit your taste or budget, it may be worth investing in a template from a site like Zazzle so that you can design them yourself. (Just don’t put anything stupid on them!)
