Sales Tip: Gratitude sells

June 19, 2019
Say "thank you" more often than you think you should.

Gratitude sells. Say “thank you” more often than you think you should; tell your customers that you really appreciate their business at least once on every sales call and you will reap the rewards many times over. Your customers are counting on you having good products and treating them right. Make darn sure that they know you count on them to buy from you and that you appreciate their business.
