Are you convinced yet? Good. Now to the question of what to write in a Thanksgiving card to a client, especially after the year we've all had. Is it us or has 2020 just been extended? Ok first things first, avoid doing what we just did and dwelling on the past or the negatives. It's so easy to do right now, but your business Thanksgiving cards should leave your clients feeling fuzzy feelings not deppressed.
So here are a few hard and fast rules you can follow when writing your Thanksgiving cards to clients:
1. Mind the length.
You're writing a Thanksgiving message, not a novel so please keep it short. If you're using Postable to send your business Thanksgiving cards, the font will automatically shrink the more you write, but don't let that fool you. You don't want to send a message with a font so small it's difficult to read. It should be just a few sentences.
2. Acknowledge the apocolypse without dwelling on it.
Ok, so for the aforementioned negatives: mention them without meditating on them. It might feel weird for your clients to recieve a message that doesn't acknowledge the elephant in the room when they're going through a really tough time, but at the same time we all know how crazy the world feels. So, just mention that things may be hard now, but you're optimistic for the holiday season and year ahead. Or just thank your clients for sticking with you through such a tumultuous time and then move on!
3. Thank your customers.
This might seem obvious, but it's so important we couldn't not include it on this fun little list of ours. The whole point of sending your clients a Thanksgiving card is to thank them! Let them know that you're grateful for the business, loyalty, and support throughout 2021. And of course, wish them a Happy Thanksgiving with their families.
