5 THANKSGIVING MOBILE IDEAS FOR SMALL BUSINESS
When you’re a busy small business owner or a manager, Thanksgiving approaches quickly and as it gets there, all you get time to do is to thank your customers with an e-blast or a social media shout out, however Thanksgiving is a great holiday to get more personal with your clients and partners and make them feel like family. And as long as you have a mobile phone along with you (which, of course you do), there are many cool things you can do that will help to make the holiday with your company feel special.
1. Thank Your Customers with a custom framed photo or a holiday card.
It may sound simple, but we do appreciate a great thought and sometimes even more in a shape of a DIY custom holiday card or a framed image. Depending on your brand, your relationship with your clients and your resources, use these mobile tools to send out warm vibes to your customers. Encourage them to use your frame to post their family celebration pictures on your social media or share the cool animated card with wishes you’ve created with their friends and family.
It is a great opportunity to not only strengthen your relationship with existing clients but to also find new ones.
