How many times have you received a thank you in a way that felt genuine? We hosted Thanksgiving this year for our family and a few extended family members and friends. It was a lovely meal and lots of fun to have everyone at our place. A few days after Thanksgiving, one of the extended family members sent us a hand-written thank you note for including them in our celebration. It was so genuine and heartfelt and truly not necessary and it really made us feel a tremendous amount of gratitude.

Fast forward to my business and now I am a business owner and am constantly thinking of ways that I can thank my customers for their business in ways that they will really feel. Can I give them a free service, or help them to optimize their latest video on YouTube just because I happened to watch it? What are ways that you can thank your customers or clients? When was the last time you received a hand-written thank you note? And if you did receive something so personal from a business owner, do you think you might mention it on your Facebook page? Do you think you might be more willing to give that business a positive review online? It’s such a quick and inexpensive way of really showing your customers that you appreciate them.
