Customer Appreciation Without Spending Alot 

It seems that’s when November comes around is when we really focus on customer appreciation and showing thanks. Sometimes, it can get overwhelming because we tend to also see dollar signs when it comes to showing our appreciation. I’m sharing with you 50 different ways you can show thanks for little to no dollars (under $5 to be exact). 

1. Send a personalized thank you email. 

2. Write a heartfelt thank you note.

3. Create a customized digital thank you card.

This said, I would like to say “Thank You” to the entire team at Cleaner & Launderer magazine for giving me the opportunity to contribute to this wonderful publication. Enjoy the upcoming holiday everyone and happy creativeness with your holiday appreciations.
