People generally have the wrong mindset about client gifts and how often you should send them.
One of my friends who is a start-up owner recently told me about his client who does business with him continuously.
According to him, within the last 4 months, he has made over $35000 from the client alone.
And he was wondering what he could do to make the client feel valued and appreciated.
I actually advised him to consider sending the client a gift.
My friend responded with a funny reaction – “gift”? He gave me a grimace and said who sent gift to a client in the middle of the year.
I actually smiled because I knew most people have a wrong mentality about sending gifts to client.
And it’s quite unfortunate that my friend was a victim of such a mindset.
Unlike what most people may think, client gifts are not kind gesture you only send during end of year.
