Pet Peeve #17: If I have taken time out of my day to send you a referral, you better take time out of your day to thank me.
Isn’t that how we are supposed to function? The Golden Rule: Treat Others As You Would Like To Be Treated
Its definitely easy to forget to say Thank You. Especially when the reward comes long after the initial introduction, however those 2 little words can play a large part in re-occurring referral business. When people feel appreciated and remembered they will keep doing what it takes to feel that appreciation again.
A Thank You can be as little as a quick text, a handwritten card, maybe a phone call even, or small gift. It does not have to be huge, time consuming or expensive. Just set your Thank You plan in motion and stay on top of it.
Wouldn’t you love it if your business was all referrals? Just remember this…the more Thank Yous you give the more Thank Yous you’ll give. (Get it)
Now its my turn, THANK YOU to everyone who reads, shares and comments on my posts. It means so much to me to know that you’re getting something out of them and its worth my time to keep writing them. It lights a little spark in my heart every time I get feedback. Keep it up!
