Writing a Thank You Message For a New Customer

It’s always a good idea to send a thank you note when you land a new account. It shows the client that you value their business and sets the tone for the start of your relationship. You might say something like this:

Dear Leslie,

We’re so very excited to have you as a customer and wanted to thank you from the bottom of our heart for choosing us. Our mission is to deliver our clients the very best experience we can, so please know that we value your feedback. We know you’ll be happy with your decision and can’t wait to get started on your project. We look forward to speaking with you soon. Have a wonderful day! 

Cordially yours,

Showing Appreciation For An Existing Client

It’s a good idea to say thank you to clients for business they’ve given you in the past. Not only does this convey genuine gratitude, but it’s also a good way to nurture the relationship in preparation for future work.

The last example was fairly universal, but for existing clients, it’s better to send a personalized message. You could word your message something like this: 

Dear Robert,

We wanted to take an opportunity to express how thankful we are that you’ve been such a loyal customer. It’s hard to believe we’ve been working with you for over five years! It’s clients like you that make our business possible. We recognize that there are other choices in the market, so we wanted to make sure you knew just how much we appreciate your continued patronage. Here’s to many more years together. Thanks again, and have an excellent day! 

Warmly yours,

Sending Thanks For Fast Payment

what to write in a business thank you card for payments

Cash flow is critical for every business. When you find a customer that pays you on-time, or early, it’s smart to acknowledge them. Saying, “Thank you for your business invoice payment” when it’s taken care of quickly is a great way to encourage this behavior to continue.

By sending a thank you note you’ll formalize the payment as a benchmark that they’ll likely try to live up to in the future. A good example:

Dear Linda,

This is just a quick note to thank you for your recent payment. We appreciate your business and wanted to acknowledge you for your professionalism in getting it to us early. It’s not required or expected, which makes it doubly impressive that you choose to run your business that way. We’re very lucky to have you as a customer and we look forward to serving you in the future. Thanks for being a dependable customer! 

Yours in gratitude,

Writing a Thank You Letter For a Business Partnership

It’s good to cement a new partnership with a sincere expression of gratitude. Trust is a critical element for any new venture.

Sending a thank you card demonstrates your willingness to open your heart and your business to your new partners. You say something like:

Dear Felipe,

A single note isn’t adequate to express how thrilling it is to be joining forces with you, but we wanted to make certain you knew how thankful we are that you’re now a part of our business family. Please pass on our thanks to everyone that worked to make this venture possible. Good things are coming in the future and we look forward to forging a path forward together. Thanks again to you and your whole team!

Saying Thank You For an Employee’s Extra Effort

When business is good and work is hectic, it’s easy to forget to say thank you to your people on the front lines, working extra hard to make sure your customers are satisfied.

Sending a quick thank you note goes a long way to buoying their spirits, and they’ll be more likely to put in extra effort that next time it’s required, too.

Dear Jaimie,

I wanted to make sure you knew how much the company appreciates that you stepped up and put in the extra effort when we needed it. It shows just how valuable you are to our operation and demonstrates your commitment to our customers. We certainly try to limit extra hours when we can, but it’s gratifying to know that we can depend on you when it’s needed. Thanks to you and your family!
