2. Gratitude is powerful ( 16:00-17:00)
Gratitude not only makes people feel appreciated in your personal life, but it also builds loyalty in your clients. Mailing cards to your clients can help you lower the cancellation rate and build long-term relationships.
3. Daily habits build the business ( 25:00-27:00)
You create the security in your business by cultivating habits that attract and retain clients. Put together a plan and set aside some time every day to cultivate a habit that will constantly improve your marketing and customer retention.
Showing gratitude is easy, and it can change lives. Invest a bit of time every day in showing gratitude to those who deserve it. Most people are never thanked for their hard work, and you never know how you can touch someone deeply just by saying the right words at the right time. Cards can also be used to show your database that you care about them and appreciate their loyalty.
