While cards and flowers are being delivered this Valentine’s Day, be sure to do something special for your customers too! Offering a small token of appreciation is a great way to make your customers feel appreciated and contribute to better business relationships.
Get started with one of these affordable and easy gift ideas that any customer would love to receive!
Send Your Customers A Thank You Card or Email
Who doesn’t like to be thanked? After searching for the right business, trusting your company, and paying for services, the last thing people want is to feel like they’re just another number on your list. And that’s exactly what will happen if you don’t show your customers that you’re grateful for their business.
A few handwritten lines can go a long way in letting customers know that you care about them.
Try mailing your top customers a small note thanking them for their business. Make them feel special and they will be more likely to continue working with you.
Include A Small Gift Card or Coupon With Your Next Invoice
Take the time to send a coupon for a discount on future services. Or a gift card (doesn’t have to be for your business – it could be something as simple as a free coffee at a local shop).
Whether by email, through the mail, or included in their next invoice – this gesture will not go unappreciated.
Most customers aren’t used to being treated special by their service providers. This is a great way to stand out against your competition and secure more future business.
Put Together Goody Bags For New Customers
There are lots of businesses that offer freebies or samples. Consider going above and beyond by gifting a bag of goodies for new or returning customers. There are many things you could include depending on your preferences.
Some inexpensive options are candy, lip balm, mints, lotion, travel sunscreen, a small mirror, hand soap, water bottle, or antibacterial hand wipes. You can also customize bags to match your business like adding dental floss for a dentist’s office or a loofa for a boutique beauty store.
Don’t forget a small thank you note that includes your contact information.
Show your clients and customers that you truly care about them by finding creative ways to be kind, considerate, and thoughtful.
