In every stage of my life the most important thing I’ve learned is that people will appreciate being appreciated. From my time in the Army when our commanders acknowledged our birthdays or anniversaries to when I was working in a corporate environment and smiled every time my bosses praised me for a job well done. Even walking down the street and someone saying a simple “Thank you for your service” when they saw my military shirt. It just feels wonderful to know that people care. And it’s a great motivational tool. That’s why when I started my own small business, I didn’t hesitate to order business Birthday cards from the Gallery Collection. I knew from experience that it was well worth the few extra dollars to let my employees and clients know that they weren’t just a number to me and that they were valued. More so, I wanted them to know they were worth the best quality cards out there, not some cheap dollar store card.
Once you give your employees and clients their special card on their special day, it’s hard not to light up inside just as much as they do. The feeling of making someone smile is great. And you know what, I notice that once you give cards your employees and clients will be more loyal, friendly and appreciative back. It’s not only a good thing to do, but it’s also a great business investment. I find that throughout these years since I started sending cards my business has only gotten stronger. In fact, now I buy my birthday cards in bulk, in case I have new clients who come in. As the Army taught me, it’s always best to be prepared. I wouldn’t want to miss a single chance to reach out to a client and dazzle them with the beautiful cards that we have. They create a lasting impression and it’s always nice to let people know that we’re much more than your average business.
