Holiday customer appreciation email tips

In such a short piece of content as this, small details have big effects. Here’s how to get it right.

  • Keep it short and use a conversational tone. This is an e-toast, not a live journal.
  • Be warm and positive, but not overly hyped. The holidays can be difficult for many people.
  • Make it visual with some graphics or a team photo.
  • Share your growth and achievements to give customers a reason to stay confident in your business.
  • Make it about them. The growth you achieved with their support. Express gratitude!
  • Connect it back to your mission. Not your value prop.
  • Focus on the future. Speak to an ongoing relationship, but not through a CTA or sales promotion. You can (and should!), however, incorporate CTAs into a year-in-review email.
