Want to build customer relationships? Then appreciate your customers for being there! As they are mostly the ones who allow sales in the future. Building a relationship comes with a “Thank you note to customers.”
Make your customers feel appreciated by writing to them professionally. The impact of it may not be visible now but is worthwhile in the future. Like you, they love appreciation as well. So, why forget the existing customers while making new ones? Appreciate every new customer for coming onboard and the existing ones for taking up the surveys or new purchases.
That’s the attitude you must never miss upon and if so, your competitors are well ahead of you. And it’s a gesture that comes genuinely!
Why does it matter?
- Builds customer loyalty for the value invested by them.
- It shows them you care and it’s impactful in the needful times.
- It’s room for greater business and high Return On Investment (ROI).
- It promotes business to other valuable customers.
How to write a thank you note to customers for business?
The letter is a true expression of emotions and need not be obligatory but a grateful gesture for their new purchases. If it’s not a handwritten note but an email then it must be addressing them delightfully.
Pick upon a format
How importantly it needs to be genuine, it also needs to be professional. Know how you are thanking them. It may be a postcard or an email note!
Know how you are greeting!
Like every business has a brand voice and style. It can be witty, sassy or quirky, or humorous!
As you write, it starts with a “Hey” or “Dear” to address the recipient. On a formal note, address them with the last name which starts with a Mr or Ms depending on the recipient.
Deliver thank you message
Thank you note to customers for business purposes may be hard to write but shouldn’t lose the sense of genuine expression to the customers. Tell them you appreciate their business and it helps them evolve and grow.
It may be,
“You are appreciated!

Add the details that matter
It’s not just their time and money but also the contribution must be a reason for adding value. Personally write them about the interaction you had.
“Thank you for filling in the survey. Regardless of the feedback, we appreciate your opinion and it matters to improve ourselves.”
Add the certainty of looking forward to again!
It builds customer loyalty in a long run and conveys seeing them sooner. And if both are valuable to each other, it would leave an impact in the needful time. It’s more open to opportunities, anytime the client wants to reconsider and it must knock them off you.
Closing that ends well
An ending note is something that brings a smile and reminds them of your note that was written by you. Use of ending like, Cheers – Sounds fun-loving, Respectfully – Indicates you respect their presence, Have a wonderful day – delights and wishes them. Use the one which suits the business brand voice!
