It's hard to believe that only three days ago at this time, I was snorkeling with my clients in Costa Rica and seeing my first sting ray! Spending a few days with my clients always gets me thinking about networking, as you know, but it also gets me thinking about client service. So for today's Two for Tuesdays, I have two tips for improving client service!
Tip One: Say Thank You
In the US, this week is Thanksgiving, so people are talking a lot about gratitude and what they are thankful for. After a tumultuous few years in the world economy, I think we can all agree that along with family and friends, we're also pretty grateful for our clients. What better time to tell them?
While I advocate active gratitude on a yearly basis, Thanksgiving can be a good reminder for this. Reach out to your top five clients this week and thank them. Even if you're not in the US, use it as a reminder to offer your clients your gratitude. Try:
- Thank you for trusting me with your business.
- I'm grateful for the opportunity to work with you.
- Thank you for being a client.
- I appreciate being your business adviser.
