Client Appreciation Parties
At least once a year invite all of your past clients and referral contacts (your A's and B's) to your annual Client Appreciation Party.
Ideas for parties:
• Backyard barbeque
• Halloween Party
• Sports Celebration
• Rent your local movie theater
• Harbor cruise (on the coast)
• Cooking demonstration
• Pool party
The most important thing is your contacts get to know you appreciate them and the referrals they send to you.
This is also a great way for you to network within you referral database.
Once you have arranged the venue send out written invitations at least three months in advance; then follow-up with a phone call to confirm receipt / attendance.
Mail a reminder card the week of the party.
Now add at least one Client Appreciation Party to this years marketing and promotions plan and calendar.
Budget about $250 - $1,000 a year for these Client Appreciation Party's and watch your investment come back 10X.
