How To Say Thank You To Your Readers & Clients
When December rolls around, it is the time of year when people start to think about Christmas and thank their clients for their loyalty. I remember one year I received a Christmas Card from a fellow blogger in Switzerland, Ashley Faulkes of Mad Lemmings.
I hadn’t received any cards from abroad before. It was really touching that he took the time to send me a holiday card to say thanks for connecting online.
This was at least 8 years ago now and I still remember it. I would pick one or two bloggers to send holiday cards to in the following years. Even the younger bloggers love being thanked today.I hadn’t received any cards from abroad before.

Holiday Gifts For Readers And Clients
Why not take it a step further a send out a few holiday gifts for clients? Years ago many businesses used to send out calendars during December.
It was a way for people to remember them throughout the year. Eventually, the price of printing went up over the years and many businesses stopped sending calendars out.
Recently I found a company that does custom gift cards. I love how brands can put a logo on gift cards. You can really personalize them for your clients, fellow bloggers, team members, or co-workers.
It doesn’t have to be just for the holidays, it can be for birthdays and blog anniversaries!
Thank You Cards
They also offer holiday thank you cards that are unique. I really like this idea as you can offer them in any denomination. Furthermore, they can be sent anywhere in the world where Visa or MasterCard are accepted.
Imagine a fellow blogger or client receiving one of these cards from you. They will surely remember who you are years from now. Similarly, you will feel good acknowledging them.
Yup, it pays off sending out those cards to keep in touch with customers and clients 👍 Have you discovered the magic of SendOutCards yet? 📱+💌+📬 =❤ Send your first card FREE!…https://t.co/U85wGX2l3j #hugsinthemail #sendingsmiles #promptings #sendoutcards pic.twitter.com/qsSWPNQqB0

How To Stay Thank You On Blog With A Special Page
What got me thinking about thanking readers was the time when I visited a blog post and commented. After I left the comment I wanted to share the post on social networks. But the post instead took me to a thank you page.
Really? Is that really necessary? Consequently, I didn’t have time to go back to the home page and figure out where the post was. It was a frustrating experience because I do like to share posts if I leave a comment on them.
Could the blogger have thanked me in other ways? Or is a thank you on the blog page a good idea?
5 Favorite Ways To Say You Appreciate Them
- Giveaways – Have giveaways for your readers on a monthly or seasonal time period. You could give away a product, a PayPal gift card, an eBook, etc.
- Comments – You can thank them in your comments and/or you can go comment on their blog.
- Share your reader’s posts on various social networks. And share more than one time. Schedule their posts in Agorapulse. Of course, be sure the posts you share are relevant to your niche.
- Mention your readers in your future posts. People love to be mentioned on others’ blogs. Why not give them a mention if they are worthy of one in a future post?
- Finally, send them something like a gift card or special note. People today will love receiving something in the mail as it is not used often anymore today.

@Lisapatb Interesting question. I try to show them I respect them by posting as consistently as I can. I try to acknowledge comments, too.
