Welcome to day 22 of my 30 days of blog post ideas series. Today we focus on getting back at it…
Wow! What happened there? Day 22 a week late?!?! 🙂 Oops! Last week got away from me. I blame staying out till midnight on Sunday – that’s not a good way to start the week…but I did have fun which makes it worth it. I’m not giving up though – I’ll carry on with the remainder of the 30 days posts – just a week later, hopefully you’ll stick with me, only 9 more posts to go.
Being British means saying thank you is second only to saying sorry for me. It’s such an easy thing to forget, but it’s so powerful. Those two words are all that’s needed to acknowledge someone has done something for you. It lets the person know you are aware and thinking of what they’ve done for you. That’s all that’s often needed to make it worthwhile for the person you’re thanking.
You might think that your customer’s owe you a thank you because, let’s face it, you’re busting your butt to help them out. And they do, but you also owe them a huge thank you – without them you’d have no business. Hopefully you enjoy your business – your customers are responsible for allowing you to live your dreams. That’s definitely worth a thank you.
There are two ways you can use this idea, either think about specific things you’re thankful to your customers for. Write them up in a blog post addressed to all your customers. Or, think about specific things you’re thankful to one or a few customers for. Write them up in a blog post addressed specifically to them. (Make sure you thank them in person or via email first).
- Be sincere.
- Make sure you get permission before mentioning any customers by name in your blog.
- Don’t be stingy with your thanks.
