Real SMB IT: A Little Thanks Can Go A Long Way

March 24, 2010

You can reach out and touch me with technology, and why a digital thank you goes a long way.

If your e-mail in box is like mine, its gets overloaded with automated emails asking me to sign up, asking me to register, or simply telling me that there is a short term discount this week.

Improving customer satisfaction and loyalty can be as easy as the occasional thank you!
