What do we do when someone does something excellent for us? Typically we say “thank you” as an expression of gratitude, but we aren’t limited to a face-to-face interaction. Actually, it’s sometimes more valuable and permanent to do something online for others to see.
We are the sum of what others say about us, so of course when you have something nice to say, people will generally want others to hear it too. This is especially true in the world of business. Your thank you is an endorsement of our work. So what are some of the ways to go about this?
1 – One Minute Facebook Live Video
This doesn’t HAVE to be exactly one minute. It can be as long as you’d like since most people won’t complain about being complimented. If you have one, post the video from your Facebook page instead of your profile.
2 – Share something specific, not a general testimonial
While people love the “(Insert name of company) is great”, it’s more powerful when folks discuss their issue, what was done to address it, and the result.
3 – Tag across various channels
Create a post on FB (at least), but re-share on Twitter and LinkedIn, tagging whoever you’re thanking, so they can pick it up in their mentions process
