Thanking your Freelance Writing Clients

When I used to work in sales and marketing, clients would always send me cards and gifts around Christmas time. These thoughts were always well appreciated, and personally, those were the type of clients that I wanted to continue doing business with. Of course, I also sent out my fair share of cards at the same time.

Do you ever send thank you notes to your freelance writing clients? There is no better time for this than the end of the year. If you forgot about this and missed the window for sending a Christmas card, you have not missed the boat just yet. Remember, you can always send a card directly after Christmas wishing your clients a happy New Year.

Believe it or not, thanking your freelance writing clients can go a long way. You may think that this gesture will go unnoticed, but the fact of the matter is that you are probably wrong. Most companies, especially smaller ones, take great notice of who sends them what over the holidays. This is not to say that they are materialistic, but it only makes sense that they know what is arriving in their mailbox.

Before I even sent out any cards a few weeks back, I received five from clients of mine. If they are going to send me a Christmas card it only makes sense for me to return the favor, right? This has a lot to do with business, but at the same time it helps to keep things personal as well. Remember, when you have a personal relationship with clients they will want to do more business with you in the future. And it is always more difficult for a client to stop sending you work if you are friends with them.

There is no better time of the year to thank your freelance writing clients. All you need is a box of cards, some stamps, and the time to head to the mailbox. For a few bucks you can show clients how much you care about them. It is safe to say that you will more than earn back the cost of cards and stamps with repeat work in 2008!
