At ProBiz Centre, we are deeply grateful for our members, colleagues, and community. We wish you a harvest of blessings, good health and good times!
Expressing gratitude is one way to help your business thrive, and often, it tends to get lost in the day-to-day.
It distinguishes you from a sea of competitors, and even small acts of appreciation can solidify your key professional relationships. It can create a connection that becomes the basis for a powerful alliance you never considered.
One of the ways we like to say THANK YOU at ProBiz Centre, is by providing Educational, Engaging and Empowering Events! Don’t miss OUR NEXT BEYOND BUSINESS NETWORKING EVENT, TUESDAY, OCT 15TH, 5:30-9 PM!
We go Beyond Business to bring entertaining & valuable networking & learning experiences!!
Don’t Let Your Business Suck The Life Out of You!
Business professionals have this to say about Gratitude:
“Gratitude is the healthiest of all human emotions. The more you express gratitude for what you have, the more likely you will have even more to express gratitude for.” —Zig Ziglar
“Finding gratitude and appreciation is key to resilience. People who take the time to list things they are grateful for are happier and healthier.” — Sheryl Sandberg, COO, Facebook
Gratitude Builds Trust And Promotes Excellence
In many respects, expressing gratitude is the sister to giving feedback. Fortunately, it is easier to be grateful than to give any type of feedback. It costs us nothing, builds our own internal resilience and empowers those around us.
“Learn to be thankful for what you already have, while you pursue all that you want.” —Jim Rohn

Here are a Few Tips for Saying Thanking to Your Customers
1. Send a Thank You Note
A handwritten thank you note goes a long way and makes a great impression. The note doesn’t have to be long – just tell your customers how much you appreciate working with them and maybe include a coupon or exclusive discount code.
Don’t feel like you have to sit down and write all the thank you notes in one day – sit down for 30 minutes a day and write just a few.
2. Host a VIP Event
You can host an event exclusively for your best customers. You have lots of options here, depending on what your customers would like most:
keep the store open late so your best customers can shop without the crowds;
host a holiday party for your most loyal customers; or
host a free lunch and learn to teach your best customers a new way to use your products.
3. Showcase Your Customers Online
Showcase your best customers on your business’s blog or social media accounts. You can do this by
posting your customers’ pictures (of them shopping in your store or using your products);
asking a customer to take over your social media account for the day; or
including an interview with your customer on your blog.
4. Start a Loyalty Program
If you don’t already have a customer loyalty program, start one. Then, invite your best customers to join it so they can get exclusive discounts and sneak peaks at future products.
5. Treat Your Customers to Coffee
Go and buy a gift card to Perks Coffee shop right here in Spruce Grove or Stony Plain. Then, share the code to the gift card on your Instagram account. Let your followers buy coffee on you until the card is empty.
There’s a good chance that your most loyal customers will be the first to see the code, so they’ll be able to go grab their morning coffee for FREE.
OR, better yet, stop by on WEDNESDAY mornings for Coffee Connections, 7:30-9:00 am, starting October 9th, and bring a colleague! Coffee's on us!
6. Offer a Free Upgrade
Surprise your loyal customers by upgrading their next service for free or throwing in a small gift with their next purchase. (Did they buy a dress for a holiday party? Throw in a lip color that would look great with it!)
7. Implement Their Suggestions
If a customer suggests for you to change something or add something to your business and you make the change, let them know. By telling them, “I implemented your suggestion”, you’re letting your customers know that you listen to them and that their feedback matters.
