I know that you know that what I am about to suggest, you already know! So why am I going to suggest it you may ask? Because I also know that even though you know about it, it may have slipped through the cracks……..
What am I talking about?
Saying thank you for a referral from an existing client – BUT please NO Gifts – that’s so awkward and really not needed, but I would suggest this is…..
Either a hand written note or email (whichever you feel best) with the simple words
Thank you for referring Jane onto our business. Please be rest assured that anyone you refer to me will be treated with the utmost care and professionalism. Jane and I met this week and we are starting to work together.
And then you may like to add a little personal note here.
One more tip – if the person who referred a client to you has their own business, you may also like to add
If I can refer any business your way, I certainly will, thank you John.
Simple yet effective – one of the laws of marketing.
