Thanksgiving is all about giving thanks and giving back. Host a canned food drive for the local food bank or give away a Thanksgiving dinner. There are many ways you can give back this Thanksgiving season. Look around and see what needs your community has and try to help alleviate them in some way.
Send custom thank-you cards to your customers to let them know how much you appreciate them. For your best customers, include a deal or "thank you" gift. This will help boost your customer loyalty and goes a long way with your customers.
Get involved with your community this season. Look for local volunteer opportunities, like a food bank or a soup kitchen. The community is essential to your business, and it's great to take the time and get involved with the people you work and live around.
Each day of November, feature one of your employees! Ask them what they are thankful for and post a picture of them with their answer. This is a great way to tie in the holiday season with your social media channels, and it gives your audience the chance to learn more about your employees. You can also include some posts saying thank you to your employees and how grateful you are to have them. This will help boost employee morale and allows you to recognize the hard work your employees do.
