5 Ways Gratitude Can Increase Your Business

We’re coming out of one of the busiest time of year… between holiday shopping and tying up end-of-year business, all of our plates were overflowing.

I want to take this time however to remind you to stop and really give thanks.  Not just in the traditional sense, rather to really sit down and take a moment to think about all of those who have made 2015 what it was for you. And think about what from 2015 you want to bring with you into 2016 and what would be better left in 2015.

“Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.”

~ William Arthur Ward

There’s no better time than January to do this since it’s at the top of most people’s minds.  Plus, having an attitude of gratitude is good for the soul, as well as your business.

My personal business motto is: Serve More. Earn More. Enjoy More!, and gratitude can help you better achieve all three of these things!  Here are five ways your business can grow by simply showing a little appreciation.

Are you talking to yourself on social media?  Social media is more than just posting. I so often work with clients who have gotten the hang of what to post on Facebook but they are not getting engagement on their posts. The same thing happens on Twitter. Tweets are being tweeted but they are not seeing anyone Favorite or Retweet what they are tweeting. 

Are you experiencing this with your social media?  It seems to be a natural inclination to think that if we put out enough information on social media and make it interesting, that people will just flock to us. I would agree that posting interesting, educational and entertaining information on Facebook and Twitter is a great start but social media is so much more than just what you put out.  How are you engaging with others to give them a reason to reciprocate and engage with you on social media?

Here are a few pointers on this:
