Thank you notes are a great way to spread positivity to those around you. There are a millions reasons everyday you could drop a thank you note by your loved ones.

Everyone appreciates a thank you note. The sender feels good about appreciating their loved one and the receiving party really enjoys the love. This creates a circle of appreciation that tends to have a snowball effect on those around you.

10 Ways To Say 'Thank You'

Expressing a little appreciation can go a long way. Here's how to take it beyond the greeting card sentiments and have meanin
13
<div>Its amazing how far a simple thank you can go. Research shows that customers spend more, employees accomplish more, and vendors are more likely to pay on time, if theyre thanked regularly.</div><div><br></div><div>We're living in what I like to call the Thank You Economy, because only the companies that can figure out how to mind their manners in a very old-fashioned way -- and do it authentically -- are going to have a prayer of competing, says social media expert and author of the book The Thank You Economy Gary Vaynerchuk in a recent Entrepreneur.com column. I care a great deal about the bottom line, but I care about my customers even more. That's always been my competitive advantage, Vaynerchuck says.</div><div><br></div><div>How exactly can you harness the power of appreciation? Here are 10 ways to thank your customers, employees and vendors this Thanksgiving -- and all year.</div><div><br></div><div>1. Be specific.</div><div><img src="http://www.thankyounotes.org/img/pics/201504_2215_hhffi.jpg" width="330" height="211"></div><div>Focus your gratitude on what the employee or vendor actually did. Rather than saying, Thanks for your good work, it would be more effective to say something like, Thanks for staying late last night to close that deal; your dedication will really help the company grow. Use a similar strategy with vendors: Recognize them when they go above and beyond whats expected.</div><div><br></div><div>2. Make it personal.</div><div><img src="http://www.thankyounotes.org/img/pics/201504_2215_aehfh.jpg" width="330" height="211"></div><div><div>Connecting your appreciation with the recipients personal life can make your message more resonant. If you show gratitude with a gift, Joey Faucette, author of Work Positive in a Negative World, suggests relating it to life beyond the business walls. For instance, if a vendor recently had a baby, give her a baby book in which she can add pictures and notes about the little one. Or if an employee's mother recently died of breast cancer, make a donation to Race for the Cure in her name.</div><div><br></div><div><b>Why its important:</b> Faucette says such intimacy breaks the ice in an emotional, not just a professional, way, which is the game-changing pathway to greater profits.&nbsp;</div></div><div><br></div><div>3. Take it old school.</div><div><img src="http://www.thankyounotes.org/img/pics/201504_2216_bdfba.jpg" width="330" height="211"></div><div><div>When was the last time you received a handwritten thank-you note? In the era of Facebook and text messaging, its likely been quite some time. Dont underestimate the impact of sending a note through snail mail.</div><div><br></div><div><b>Why its important:</b> Taking the time to write a thoughtful note indicates a deeper level of appreciation than simply dashing off a short email or text. Because the hand-written letter is pretty much a lost art, the extra effort will not go unnoticed and may make customers more inclined to give you repeat business.</div></div><div><br></div><div><div><b>4. Be authentic.</b></div><div><img src="http://www.thankyounotes.org/img/pics/201504_2218_gahea.jpg" width="330" height="211"></div><div>If you dont mean it, dont say it. Your customers and employees will know right away if a thank you is genuine or not. Similarly, dont dole out gratitude when its not deserved. If you go around thanking everyone for every tiny thing, it wont mean much when its actually warranted.&nbsp;</div><div><br></div><div><b>Why its important:</b> If I or my employees had come off as phonies or schmoozers, my company would not be what it is today, Vaynerchuk says. You cannot underestimate people's ability to spot a soulless, bureaucratic tactic a million miles away. Engagement has to be heartfelt, or it won't work.</div></div><div><br></div><div><div><b>5. Add some real value.</b></div><div><img src="http://www.thankyounotes.org/img/pics/201504_2219_beafb.jpg" width="330" height="211"></div><div>Host a customer appreciation day with deep discounts and giveaways for your loyal fans. Offer free shipping on all online orders. Give your employees small incentives for going above and beyond, like a gift certificate for a night at the movies or a small monetary bonus.</div><div><br></div><div><b>Why its important:</b> Sometimes words arent enough. Its gestures such as these that in the long run can help boost your bottom line. If your customers feel that you go out of your way to reward them, theyre more likely to choose you over your less-appreciative competition.&nbsp;</div><div><br></div><div><b>6. Don't forget the little guy.</b></div><div><img src="http://www.thankyounotes.org/img/pics/201504_2219_iffdi.jpg" width="330" height="211"></div><div>Its easy to remember to recognize the people you work with directly everyday. But its also important to give thanks to the often-overlooked crew that helps your business run smoothly. Leave a thank you note for the trash collector, give the mailman a gift certificate to a local restaurant, or get a dozen cupcakes for the UPS guy.</div><div><br></div><div><b>Why its important:</b> Most people dont thank these hard-working people. So, a little effort will make you stand out and can go a long way toward getting great service from these folks. &nbsp;</div><div><br></div><div><b>7. Refer business to your vendors and partners.</b></div><div><img src="http://www.thankyounotes.org/img/pics/201504_2219_hdffb.jpg" width="330" height="211"></div><div>There may be no better way to thank your vendors than by sending more business their way. While such a direct referral is always appreciated, you also could go a step further and host a party for all your vendors and partners. Invite your suppliers, accountant, lawyer, investors and anyone else you do business with.</div><div><br></div><div><b>Why its important:</b> If you throw a party, you will not only be thanking your vendors with a great time, but youll also be giving everyone a chance to network and connect with new clients.</div><div><br></div><div>Related: 3 Tips for Using LinkedIn's New 'Endorsements' &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;</div><div><br></div><div><b>8. Think outside the box.</b></div><div><img src="http://www.thankyounotes.org/img/pics/201504_2220_afceg.jpg" width="330" height="211"></div><div>If you want to get the attention of vendors and clients, send a distinctive thank-you gift. Consider geographic-specific gifts -- if youre based in Wisconsin, for example, send a selection of high-quality cheeses. Peruse Etsy for handmade or vintage items that say thanks in a unique, memorable way. Or create a personalized golf towel, wine glass or other item using a service such as RedEnvelope.com.</div><div><br></div><div><b>Why its important:</b> Because some people receive hundreds of gifts throughout the year, you need to send a thank-you gift people will remember when its time to pull out their wallets. &nbsp;</div><div><br></div><div><b>9. Thank your complaining customers.</b></div><div><img src="http://www.thankyounotes.org/img/pics/201504_2220_agfge.jpg" width="330" height="211"></div><div>Complaining customers are going out of their way to tell you why theyre dissatisfied. This generally means they still want to do business with you, assuming youre able to fix the problem. When a customer complains, thank them first for their business, then explain how you will make things right and offer an exclusive coupon to be used on a future visit.</div><div><br></div><div><b>Why its important:</b> Most unhappy customers dont bother to complain, but simply take their business elsewhere. So every complaint should be seen as an opportunity to improve relationships and win repeat business. &nbsp;</div><div><br></div><div><b>10.
