Ways To Include More Gratitude In Your Online Business
Here are some of my favourite ways to add a little thankfulness to a business each and every day. Try and implement at least a few of these into the running of your online store and I promise you’ll not only see an increase in sales but your mindset will become more positive.
Write A Daily Gratitude Journal
Writing down a daily journal of all the things you are grateful for is a beautiful way to contemplate and recognise the great things in your life.
Having a bad day? When you write about it, try and reframe the experience, focusing on what you’ve learnt, how you’ll grow and use language that’s positive.
Include Handwritten Thank You Notes With Orders
I mentioned earlier how adding a little note expressing thanks to your customers can encourage them to become repeat purchasers.
I know your busy, and adding this to your ever growing to do list may feel impossible, especially on high volume sales days. If that’s the case, just promise yourself that you’ll write notes to at least the first 10 customers each day.
Each note needn’t be more than a line or two, it’ll just take a few seconds.
And for those of you with handwriting resembling a toddlers scrawl (like me!), try not to worry. It’s the thought that counts rather than the legibility – plus practise makes perfect.
Make A Love Folder Or Thank You Board
Every time you get a glowing review, or a customer shares how much they love your store on social media SAVE IT! It’ll help you remember why you started this business during challenging times.
I have a folder on my computer filled with wonderful mentions of my business that makes me glow with happiness every time I open it. If your a more visual person, print them out and stick ‘em to your office wall. Whatever works for you.
Treat Yourself Once In A While
All those late nights, headaches and challenges you pushed yourself to overcome – they led to that sale!
So, take time to thank yourself for all your hard work.
Book yourself a celebratory spa day once in a while, indulge in your favourite dinner, or as I do, use a subscription flower delivery service to send yourself beautiful blooms with a thank you note attached every few months.
Forgive The Difficult Customers
Yes, even those nit-picking, headache inducing, snooty customers are worth sending gratitude vibes to.
After all, without them you wouldn’t be able to keep improving and growing. Trust me, by recognising the value in those less than lovely customers, you will erase soooo much daily stress.
Pay It Forward
Supporting other independent online businesses, even your competitors, is a really great way to feel good.
Give them a shout out on your social media accounts, let customers know about brands who share your ethos that they’ll also love, and shop independently yourself.
Remember How Far You Have Come
I’m going to hazard a guess that a year ago your business wasn’t doing as well as it is today. Yes, you might not have grown your sales as quickly as you’d hoped, but just look at all the steps forward you have taken.
Feel thankful for finding a way through those ups and downs, and for the new exciting challenges that arrive every time your business up levels.
Use Positive Language
Changing the language you use has a huge effect on how you feel about a situation. Instead of focusing on negative emotions, use positive turns of phrase to redefine the moment.
So, there’s only one thing left for me to say…. THANK YOU! Thank you for reading to the end of this article, allowing me 10 minutes of your precious time and trusting in the value of gratitude to add sales to your business.
As always, I’d love to hear your stories about how adding a splash of gratitude to your day has made a difference to your business. Let me know in the comments below.
