Thank You for Doing What You Do

Written by Renee Clare-Kovacs April 20, 2017

Thank You. Nice Job. Yo.

Saying thank you can be difficult, especially in the workplace. We’re paid to do the job we do—isn’t the paycheck enough? Yes and no. Despite the number of zeros on your paycheck, it’s always nice to have someone recognize what you do—in person. How thank you is said is different from person to person. Personally, I love telling people how they’ve contributed to making my job easier so it’s typical for me to say something like, “Hey, I really appreciate that graphic you created. It got across the point I was trying to make. I dig that”. (I don’t know why, but I love “I dig that”.) For others (the Sellr developers), a quick “That was great” is all you’re going to get. Both have the same level of gratitude, it just varies based on the person.

Today is National High Five Day, a holiday completely made up by social media people, I’m sure, but the idea behind it, saying thank you, is good. If you don’t know how, exactly, to say thanks after giving your team a high five, read on.

By the way, our contribution to High Five Day is giving away five free Sellr websites on April 30. Don’t miss your chance to win—register now.

Thank You Basics

A quick Google search will give you hundreds of ways to say thanks. This list from has formal, polite, and informal ways to say thank you.

This year Starbucks has also opened the door to follow up with a Unicorn Frappucino. If you aren’t into colors, sugar, and mango flavor, a gift card is also a nice thought.

Thanks for That.

Let’s face it. Anyone can drop a quick “thanks”, but the sentiment is more meaningful if it is about something. Don’t let this overwhelm you. There is some good in everyone, even your dreaded third grade teacher. Think about what that thing is. For my dreaded third grade teacher, she could certainly keep the lines straight on the playground when it was time to head back inside. Take a step back and think about what it is you appreciate about the person you’re giving credit to. Here’s a list to get you started:

  • Quick display reset
  • Moves the checkout line quickly
  • Always knows how to find what the customer wants
  • Punctual (if all else fails)

Don’t think too hard about this. It should be pretty obvious.

Thanks Marketing Team!

I am biased here, but I think your marketing team deserves some major thanks. There is your store, sitting there on Main Street, well stocked and waiting for customers to come in. Your marketing team makes sure that your store is more than just the store on Main Street; they make it the go-to place to get just what you need. If you’ve (wisely) made the move to social media marketing, they’re checking your Facebook and Twitter pages to promote products and protect your reputation against those negative reviews. They are the front lines of customer service. They are your biggest cheerleaders even when your Yelp rating has dropped below 3 stars. They deserve a big high five!

If you are the one marketing your store, you know how difficult this can be. If you are the marketing team, even if it’s a team of one, some help with your job would probably be a welcome way for your boss to say thank you. Sellr knows.
