Social media is a great medium to use to give thanks. With Thanksgiving is almost here, we have so much to be thankful for. I am so thankful for my business and I’m sure you’re thankful for yours too. But sometimes we get so busy that we forget to say thank you to people who have helped to get us where we are. Social media is a great resource that can be used to give special thanks your clients and customers. Here are some ways in which you can utilize social media do just that:
- Like a Business Fanpage or regular Facebook page. When you like a fanpage you offer credibility to that business or person.
- Endorse someone on LinkedIn. Endorsing people’s skills is one of many great ways to say thank you to your professional connection. The thing with endorsements is that you allow the person to use your influence to the employees who see it.
- Write a recommendation for someone on LinkedIn. A professional recommendation of someone’s skills is a great way to say thank you.
- Give someone a special spotlight feature or post on Facebook. There is nothing like being in the spotlight. Do a spotlight on someone as a kind gesture of thanks.
