After completing a quick purchase or other business transaction with someone, instead of just saying “thank you”, let them know you appreciate them.
A genuine smile and a quick, “I appreciate you” or “I appreciate ya'” works just fine. It’s that little extra special touch that separates you from everyone else – even the polite people who say thank you – and makes you memorable in his or her mind.
You become that person they’ll go out of their way to please during the next transaction. Do this just a couple of times; note the surprised and delighted expressions on their faces. It becomes habit-forming.
By the way, thank you for taking the time to read this…I appreciate ya’! :-).
