Every order online that I receive from my Etsy store, I send a “thank you gift”.
I use my stash of beads and make a key chain, or a pair of earrings, or a stretchy bracelet and include an hand written thank you card along with the business card stock that I made and printed “A thank you gift from ZeeBlings by Kathy Zee.”
I get five star ratings for my jewelry on Etsy, and many thank you’s from customers.
Cost is deductible at tax time, and it costs me literally nothing to do this extra thank you.
I have a stash of beads that would fill a store…not really, but enough that it’s easy to “give” something and I have many repeat customers.
