When it comes to engaging with your audience on social media, saying thanks is a great way to show your appreciation. Whether that’s for their support during a difficult period or their continued custom, we’ve put together five ways in which you can say thank you on social.
Give somebody a Twitter shout out
Thanking your customers with a shout out makes sense – you can show your appreciation and give them exposure in return. Whether they’ve mentioned you in their latest blog post, placed a particularly large order or sent you a thank you note, you can use social media to show that you’re connecting with your customers on a one-on-one level.
Endorse a client on LinkedIn
If you work with a particular client or supplier on a regular basis, then give them a knee up by endorsing them on LinkedIn. If they’ve been particularly valuable to your organisation, consider writing a recommendation to endorse their skills and expertise – and be sure to link it back to your organisation’s LinkedIn profile for added exposure.
Use milestones to say thanks
Creating special graphics or videos when you hit a particular milestone is a great way to give back – 100, 1,000 and 10,000 are all appropriate follower/like counts to celebrate. If you’re feeling particularly generous, consider running a giveaway to celebrate your social media success – not only will it help you show your followers that you care, but it will open your brand to even more people.
Feature a success story
Expressing gratitude doesn’t have to be done in the form of a thank you note. Featuring a success story on your website’s blog is a great way to show your clients that you value them – and give your business another case study to use when pitching to prospective clients.
Do something fun
A thank you doesn’t have to originate from social media – indeed, you could send a handwritten thank you note, card or message to a client and then ask them to share it on social media and their website. It’s a fun, simple and unique way to show that you care.
