Gift Baskets; Four Ways to Win Repeat Business From Clients

unique-gift-baskets-for-menWhether you're the president of a large corporation or a customer representative for a smaller company, you can easily give lavish gifts to your clients or prospects by having corporate gift baskets delivered to their home or office. Adorable Gift Baskets provides high quality corporate baskets to make you shine among all your business acquaintances.

As a small business owner, it is easier and more cost-effective to win repeat business from existing clients than to gain new clients. Existing clients have already reaped the rewards of using your services and know that you can be relied upon to do a good job. Here are four ways in which you can maximize your chances of winning repeat business.

Always Meet Your Deadlines and Try to Deliver Work Ahead of Schedule. If you consistently deliver high quality work on time or even before your deadlines, the client will turn to you first when he has extra work as he knows that you can be relied upon to meet your commitments in a timely fashion.

Bear this in mind when negotiating deadlines. Do not feel obliged to accept a deadline that is too tight. It is better to ask for some extra time in which you will be able to deliver a high quality product than it is to agree to a tight deadline and produce sub-standard work. The client will be more likely to remember the quality of your work than the fact that you met a tight deadline.

Always Answer Emails and Return Telephone Calls Promptly. This does not mean that you should rush to answer a client’s question. If you don’t know the answer immediately, just send the client a quick reply thanking her for her question and saying that you will get back to her with an answer as soon as possible. It is much better to keep the channels of communication open in this way than to ignore an email or telephone message from a client because you are unsure of the correct response.

At the End of a Project, Thank the Client With A Gift Basket. Thank the client for the opportunity to have worked with him on this project. Say that you have enjoyed working with him and that you look forward to the opportunity to work together again in future. Express your genuine feelings about your good working relationship without being pushy or over-the-top.

Keep in Touch with the Client Regularly. This does not mean that you should ring the client every week asking her if she has more work. Instead, send a link to an article that you think may be of interest to her or forward information on a conference that she may be interested in attending. Don’t do this too often. Once every one to two months is often enough for the client to remember you and to be grateful for the snippets of information that you bring to her attention.

If you follow these tips, there is every chance that your client will turn to you first when he requires someone with your expertise to work on a project. If your client changes jobs, you may even find that he calls on your services from his new company, thereby enabling you to win business at a new client company and extend your list of clients.

Impress Your Dad With A Father's Day Gift Basket

Picking out just the right Father's Day gift for your Dad isn’t always an easy task. 
Maybe your dad is the strong silent type who doesn’t ever give any clues about what he wants for Father’s Day, or maybe he just insists that you don’t need to get him anything at all.

Father's Day gift baskets allow you to present your dad with something that is both creatively arranged and filled with things that he loves. There are many benefits of sending a gift basket for dad through the mail versus giving a traditional gift, and here are just a few.

The Selfish Act Of Giving, by Laura Tucker

Traditional knowledge tells us the business of gift giving and receiving is built around the old adage, "It's better to give than to receive." As a society of giving people we want to make an acknowledgment to the people in our life of what the relationship means to us, but the act isn't nearly as selfless as it seems. 

At first, thought giving a gift seems like a selfless act, but once you follow all the thoughts involved, it isn't really selfless after all. There is something you are hoping to gain from it, so it can't be completely selfless. You're doing it so that you will feel good about yourself. Seeing that look on the recipient's face, the immediate knowledge that they've been waiting for this gift or are genuinely surprised by it is what we're waiting for. This becomes a gift to ourselves. 

When I shop for a gift for someone, I try to find something that lets them know how I connect to them, a symbol of our relationship. This is someth…
