Our Moms taught us the importance of the thank-you note - heartfelt gratitude for kindness shown. It's just good manners.
When it comes to business, thank-you notes are a must - especially when a customer or client refers your business. They are paying you the ultimate compliment. They value your service, trust you and your product, and have confidence in your abilities.
Why not express your gratitude for their referral with a little more than just a thank-you note?
I recommend a food gift like gourmet brownies from Fairytale Brownies. Think about it. You can't go wrong with a food gift because everyone eats! If you discover your recipient doesn't care for fudge brownies, send chewy cookies or buttery bars instead.
Referrals are strong business builders. When a client or customer tells their friend about your awesome service or product, they not only are advertising for you, they're building your reputation as a trusted and valued business.
The clients don't have to say a word about your business, but you obviously made a positive impression on them and they want to share their experience with people they know. Reward their loyalty!
Clients not only will feel valued when you send them a food gift with a thank-you note for their referral, they will refer your business again as well.
