Motivational Speaker With a CREATIVE Idea to Show Your Customers You Care

08 Feb Posted by in Business | 4 comments

motivationalspeakerslovecustomersOkay, Valentine’s Day is coming up. (I still have flashbacks of all those single years when Valentine’s Day was just a reminder for me that nobody was going to send flowers. So glad I’m married now so when Valentine’s Day comes and I still don’t get flowers, at least I know who to hit.) But what if we saw Valentine’s Day as an opportunity to show the love to our customers? What if we sent our customers a note telling them how much we love doing business with them? Talk about different! I would bet nobody else is showing customer appreciation on Valentine’s Day. You would certainly be different. And don’t make it a puffy little card without real sentiment. Spend some time really thinking about it – and expressing why you like doing business with them. Don’t make this about your company doing business with their company. Make this about you doing business with that person – face to face – person to person. Just one little way you can stand up and stick out in a crowded market. (And I would bet they won’t be throwing that card away!)

And by the way…if your love note involves a lipstick kiss, pictures of you in your underwear, or involves you hanging out in the bushes by their front door –  you’ve gone too far.

Happy Valentine’s Day from your wacky motivational speaker trying to find a way to get noticed in a crowded market,

    Kelly, great idea. But I have to change my plans a bit…I was strongly considering me in my undies. But I think you are right!

    Hello Kelly from across the state.

    Funny quote I just found. “I don’t understand why Cupid was chosen to represent Valentine’s Day. When I think about romance, the last thing on my mind is a short, chubby toddler coming at me with a weapon.” -Author Unknown

    What a great way to be different. I encourage you to do this using some awesome new technology at Send a card on me including postage.

    Happy Valentine’s Day everyone !!

    Hey Wayne! I agree about Sendout Cards. I use them already and love them. And it makes it easy to send a bunch at once – and use our own handwriting font to make it look like we wrote it! Too cool. Thanks for the post!
