As one of the most difficult years for businesses, the support of clients has been more important than ever. Without their business and continued support, many businesses would have gone under.
With the end of the year approaching, it’s a time to say thank you. And while traditional corporate thank-yous might be off the table, there are still some great ways to show your appreciation.
Take a look at some of the ways you can thank your clients at the end of this difficult year.
Send them a festive gift
A gift can be a wonderful way to thank your clients for their continued support throughout the year. No matter what your budget this year, there are some unique corporate gift ideas you can buy that will be sure to make an impression. It’s the thought that counts, and it’s nice to show your clients a small token of your appreciation.
Invite them to a (safe) social gathering
Things are still very uncertain at the moment, but if you are planning some kind of holiday party, whether in person or online, then an invite to your clients can be a great way to say thank you, and get a chance to socialize with them before the year is up. Make the occasion a special one – starting with your invitations! Some custom holiday stamps for party invitations can give them a little something extra, bringing a smile to someone’s face. While your annual holiday party might be more low-key this year, it can still be worthwhile to do something to say thank you this year.
Write them a note
Sometimes it’s the personal touches that mean the most to people, and you can’t go wrong with a handwritten, personal message. There are different approaches you can take when it comes to writing thank yous to clients, but you can be sure that they’ll appreciate the effort you’ve made to thank them in a more heartfelt way.
Give them a special promotion
While it’s nice to thank clients for their support over the year, you’ll also want to make sure that they continue to work with you next year. Providing clients with special promotions can be an excellent way of thanking them and helping to ensure their continued business in the New Year. From special discounts to existing client-only deals, your thank you can also serve as a reminder to keep working with your business next year.
The importance of community and appreciation has never been more apparent than this year. Saying thank you to your clients helps show that you care, but it’s also a great way to improve communications with them. Say thank you to those that have stuck with you this year and then draw a line under things ready for the New Year. While it might have been a tough year, you can certainly end it on a high note.
