A Six-Letter Word to Use Often

Latest posts by Melanie Rembrandt (see all)

With the way things are right now in the business world, there are many four-letter words that I’m sure you have no problem saying! But, at the same time, have you thanked your customers, partners, associates, and media contacts lately for helping your business stay afloat?

 

If not, here are three simple ways to use the six-letter word, “Thanks,” to improve your relationships… and your business:

 

1. Just Say It.

 

Whenever you speak to someone related to your organization, make a special point to thank them for their business. Sometimes, we get so busy that we forget to say, “THANKS.” It’s a simple word that can turn a person’s day around.

 

2. Send a Note.

 

While e-mail thank-you-notes are always nice, when was the last time you sent a handwritten thank-you to your favorite customer, employee, partner, or media member?

 

With today’s fast-paced technology, people appreciate receiving a special “thank you” just for them via snail mail. This little note can make a big impression and show that you really appreciate someone’s actions. And if you send a thank-you message to reporters after they cover you in a story, they will definitely remember you the next time they need a resource!

 

3. Take Action.

 

If a customer, vendor, dry cleaner, accountant, or someone else does something nice for you, think about taking your “thank you” once step further. Send flowers, offer a special coupon, hand deliver a sweet treat to their door, or just stop by with a personal note of gratitude.

 

It may take a few extra minutes, but you’ll create a lasting and personal relationship with the people who can help you save time, money and effort in both your personal and business life.

 

Change Your Attitude – And Have a Better Day.

 

It can be difficult to stay positive with all of the negative news out there. When you’re having a day like this, try to think of the top ten things you are thankful for and make a quick, mental list of gratitude. It will change your attitude significantly.

 

Everyone likes to be acknowledged for a job well done… so with this in mind, take a few minutes right now to think about what you are thankful for… and say this six-letter word often to the people who help you. This simple action will help put you in a better frame of mind – and those around you too!
