I am a long-time writer who enjoys writing articles about birthdays and other holiday celebrations!
Maintaining a relationship and keeping in good standing with your customers and clients is good for business. For these reasons, many businesses tend to send birthday cards, emails, or text messages to their clients and customers.
These messages shouldn't sound like a bad or cheesy advertisement. In fact, it's better if you try to hide your logos and slogans. A birthday card, be it for a customer or your wife’s sister, should always be personalized. In this article, you'll find some tips on how to do that. In addition, you'll find some sample messages you can use and customize for your customers and clients. Enjoy!
Tips for Writing Birthday Messages for Clients
- Try to make it as personalized as possible.
- Do not use the same birthday card template for everyone. Identical cards may lessen the importance and emotional value of one's birthday.
- With that said, try to find some unique birthday card styles.
- Always know and use the client or customer's name in the message. Addressing them by their first name will create the illusion of intimacy.
- Keep the quote simple and to the point. Overly flowery language is not required and may seem insincere.
- Humor can be used to make your wishes interesting. But be careful not to cross any lines. Vulgar jokes are unprofessional and not expected from reputed business owners.
- Send your messages in a timely manner. If somebody gets a birthday message three weeks after their actual birthday, this not only hurts your brand's image but would likely annoy the client or customer.
- Make sure you write your own name along with the company’s as the sender to make it more sincere. For example, do not write “from ABC LLC.” Instead, it would be better to write “from Stewart Mill, ABC LLC."
