  10. 10. Think About This<br />Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it. – William Arthur Ward<br />Think of the last time you did something nice for someone (letting them into heavy traffic, provided a referral, etc.) and didn’t receive a “thank you”<br />© Aleweb Social Marketing, October 2010<br />
  11. 11. The Power of Thank You<br />The expected “thank you” is important, but unexpectedgratitude has far more impact (thanks for having coffee with me, etc.) <br />Sets you apart<br />Creates warm feelings<br />Is passed along to others<br />Not saying “thank you” does more damage than saying “thanks” does good<br />© Aleweb Social Marketing, October 2010<br />

  13. 13. The Effect of Gratitude<br />The great thing about it is, you both benefit! Gratitude is contagious!<br />Start your day saying “thank you” and watch what happens next!<br />Fear disappears and abundance appears (Tony Robbins)<br />Make the choice to be positive<br />The moment you permit your mind to dwell with dissatisfaction on things as they are, you begin to lose ground. On the other hand, to fix your attention on the best is to surround yourself with the best and to become the best. (Wallace Wattles – The Science of Getting Rich)<br />© Aleweb Social Marketing, October 2010<br />

  16. 16. Beware of Disguises<br />If you must contact someone for business, keep it business-oriented<br />Don’t disguise it as appreciation<br />When you contact someone to thank them, don’t hide propaganda in the message<br />Remember, the people you appreciate already know what you do for a living<br />© Aleweb Social Marketing, October 2010<br />
  17. 17. Caring Counts!<br />If you genuinely care about someone else, it’s easy to give them referrals and you can count on them doing the same<br />Cultivating relationships takes time, there’s no fast track to do it, but if you’re steadfast and patient, your efforts will pay off (Your garden will be full of tomatoes!)<br />© Aleweb Social Marketing, October 2010<br />
