The holidays are fast approaching and now is the time to make your decisions on gifts for your customers. Remembering your clients during the holidays is a way to express gratitude for your customers and enhance your relationships.
In return, your customers might be more likely to spend more money with your company in the coming year. Tug at your customers’ heartstrings and aim for an emotionally driven experience so they won’t feel this is like another sell.
Keep in mind:
- Not everyone celebrates Christmas, so go for more generic holiday cards.
- Addresses change; make sure you have your customers’ most current address.
- Order custom cards in time to address and ship to arrive before Jan. 1, 2023.
- If it’s too late to get your holiday cards, consider ordering New Year celebration cards.
5 Ways to Thank Clients
Consider any of these five unique and affordable strategies to express customer appreciation this holiday season.
Send a Thank-You Card
Write a note to express gratitude for purchasing your products or services during the holiday season is a meaningful way to demonstrate your appreciation for their business. Include the note in purchases during the holiday season or even send a message to loyal consumers with a special offer to come back in the new year.
If you get too far into the holiday season and realize you don’t have time to send a thank-you card, send a personalized email instead.
Give Away Gift Cards
Another easy way to show your appreciation is by offering gift cards. If your company sells products, you can give customers gift cards to your store with the thought they will bring more business in the future. Give your company even more exposure when your gift card giveaways are done via social media. This will increase awareness about your business and bring in new customers. It’s a win-win for you and your customers.
Free Product, Service, or Upgrade
Who doesn’t love freebies? Show your gratitude by offering something to say thank you and not break your business bank account. Whether your company sells products or services, your business could give a free monthly upgrade to a service your customer has already bought.
Coupons or a Special Offer
If you can’t offer a physical gift to your customers, coupons and special offers could be your best option. Coupons such as “buy one, get one free,” “25% off with any purchase,” or “$15 off when you spend over $50” are simple ways to keep customers coming back.
A Free Gift with Purchases
Since it is the gift-giving season, consider giving your customer a free gift with their purchase. Your gift doesn’t have to be expensive to make a lasting impression. The simple thought will ensure your customers feel like a valued part of your business. Branded items such as sample-size products make great free gifts for the holiday season.
If branded products aren’t in your budget this season, offer candy or cookies at the register of your brick-and-mortar store or include a free PDF checklist download during online checkout.
