Grand Potential Podcast


Building relationships and customer loyalty by showing how grateful you are for your customers, partners and team is the foundation of appreciation marketing. Appreciation marketing is much more than a thank-you card. It also incudes staying in touch, compensation for referrals, and seeking feedback that can correct problems before they blow up.

In this workshop we will dive deeper into appreciation marketing by:

a) Looking at your marketing strategies and processes
b) Finding the right messaging and content that resonates with your clients
c) Following up in ways that create meaningful relationships

Save the date for this valuable master class where you’ll have the opportunity to build appreciation marketing into your company culture.
