3 tips to Love Your Clients Up on Valentines + Yummy Cacao Recipe for Your Sweetheart

http://www.dreamstime.com/-image12930993Valentines’ Day only comes once a year and it’s can be a fun way to let your clients know how much you appreciate them. ‘Cause without your clients, you wouldn’t be in business! The problem for most Holistic Pro’s is that there’s only so many hours in the day and it’s easy to spend most of your time focusing on getting new clients or doing new marketing. But nurturing your existing clients is one of the best things you can do.

I like to keep my Valentines’ Day love simple and sweet.

Here’s 3 few tips you can implement by tomorrow to show your clients some love:

Send a Special Email
Send a simple email expressing appreciation for your clients. Let them know how much having them as a client means to you. For some clients, this may be the only “love letter” they’ll receive.

Share a delicious, healthy Valentines’ treat
Everyone loves a little sweet treat on Valentines’ Day! If you see clients in person, you can make them something, create a recipe card or share your Top 5 Tips for self-love on Valentines’ (bubble bath?) Or simply create online access to this special tip or goodie.

If you don’t have one, use the recipe below for Cacao & Pistachio Bark, one of my favorites!

Offer a heartfelt gift
Everyone likes a gift! Keep it simple and create a pdf report of tips, a video message from you, an audio clip, or access to a special live call with you where you can answer questions from your community or clients. (Here at the IAWP, you can access our Wellness Leaders Webinar all day on Feb. 13 and 14th! Just click here now, no opt-in required.)

Make sure to keep your gift personal. Who doesn’t love something homemade! Share a personal story or a personal favorite tip or idea.

A few other things to keep in mind when loving up your clients on Valentines:

*Don’t sell anything – The main reason for sending a Valentines Day promotion or gift is just to express your gratitude and appreciation for your clients. So don’t use this as an opportunity to sell anything or create discounts on your products. Just offer something of great value without a pricetag and it will be extra sweet!

*Don’t overcomplicate – Don’t get overwhelmed in what to do or how to say it. Keep it simple for yourself and sweet for your clients. Speak from your heart and hit send!

I’d love to hear from you! What are you doing to love your clients up on Valentines’ Day. Share your comments below.

And here’s that delicious recipe…..


Cacao & Pistachio Chocolate Bark

1 8 oz dark chocolate bar (80% or higher cacao content is best)
2 Tbsp Cacao Nibs
1/4 cup ground pistachios (substitute walnuts or almonds if you prefer)
1 tsp favorite spice or herb, optional (cinnamon or cayenne or lavender are all nice)

Melt chocolate slowly on low heat. Prepare a cookie sheet with tin foil. When chocolate has melted, use spoon to pour entire contents onto cookie sheet. Sprinkle with cacao nibs and pistachios and spice. Alternately, use other toppings like walnuts, almonds, coconut, or pomegranate seeds.

Place in refrigerator for several hours until hardened. Break into chunks for bark. Enjoy with your sweetie.

Thriving Together,

    Hi Suzanne,

    Thanks for this wonderful article. I sent my subscribers a message about how they should not forget to love themselves also because self-love is the greatest love of all; that we cannot love others unless we first love ourselves.

    Then, I provided them a link to a YouTube video of Whitney Houston singing, “The Greatest Love of All.” Two people responded and thanked me for my message!
