I recently found this awesome book that is truly the ultimate resource for getting your Appreciation Marketing on the right track.

If you own a business of any sort, then you need to have a plan in place for Appreciation Marketing.  It is crucial to show your customers and prospects you appreciate and thank them for their business.

If you don’t take care of your customers and make them feel special – someone else will!

    Hi Glyna,

    I take appreciation marketing long, long before a friend or prospect becomes a customer. I do my best to show my gratitude even when my friends and followers leave an intelligent comment on one of my video blog posts.

    I absolutely love connecting, making new friendships, and leading by example as a positive, proactive and grateful person. I am especially grateful that I can include You as one of the people who had positive influence on my life and business.

    Thanks so much,

    David H. Paul

    Hi Glyna Everything that you said towards appreciating your life and what you already have is so true. To me it is not about all the wealth that I can receive but all that I can give not only to make my life better but to help others who are more in need than you and I are. Awesome video and keep up the good work!

    Glyna Humm Reply:

    Thank you Tony! I totally agree with you. It is so great to help other people and make a real difference in their life.

    You said it girl!
    Giving appreciation for any reason makes the world of difference. Glad to see you back in the swing here.

    Those appreciation zappers won’t last too long1 So we’ll just keep on doing what we’re doing.

    Have an awesome day Glyna,
    Val 😉

    Relationships, Relationships, Relationships. That’s the key to living a full life. Yes, we’ve all heard about appreciation marketing in one way or another but as you said we have to be reminded. It’s far too easy to take for granted all the people in our life and not to let them know how much they mean to use.

    Obviously, it must be a good book filled with nuggets of Gold if you’ve read it twice. I know for me when I find a great book I read it more than once too. Thanks for the reminder. It’s a good thing to keep in the top of mind awareness as we move forward in the new year.

    What a great read. I’ve been through Tommy’s book several times. He is a very funny guy with super insights to our business. I like the statement he makes that he was so in awe of his wife that he didn’t pass wind for five years. Funny guy with a real message.

    His sense of humor does crack me up and is another reason I love this book so much! Thanks Nelson!

  7. What a great video and I have to agree with you. The relationship you build with your customers can last forever. I personally try to stay on top of that game because I know how important it is to my business.

    Last thing left is a drive down to the bookstore and picking up your suggestion.
    Can’t wait to read it, thanks for the recommendation.

    This is a must read for anybody that works with others. I have used this concept for 27 years. You are truly a person that has always shown appreciation for others. Thats is one of the key points I like about you!

    Glyna Humm Reply:

    Oh – thank you so much Bill. I feel the same about you:) It looks like Appreciation Marketing has definitely served you well over the years!

  10. Thanks for the suggestion, Glyna. It sounds like a great book! Appreciation is built in to the approach I take to my home business. For what is network marketing if it doesn’t start with building solid relationships?

    Glyna, what a refreshing message. This is a true life lesson. I don’t know why it is that people are ready to complain any minute of any day, but oftentimes forget to pass along the positives. Thanks for the reminder. Your point is well taken.

    Hey Glyna,

    Thanks for touching on this very important topic Appreciation Marketing and for your suggested reading, it definitely sounds like a great book.

    Showing your appreciation towards your customers, business partners, family and friends is so vital to maintain healthy relationships and yet it is something that I think everyone can improve on.

    Tomorrow why don’t we make it a goal to sincerely thank at least five people for making a difference in our life and show them how much their love or their friendship or their business means to us.

    Thanks Glyna for putting this at the forefront.


  15. Glyna,
    Great post and great video! Appreciation and gratitude are such keys to success in all areas of our lives. Marketing is about building relationships and that begins by acknowledging and appreciating our clients and prospective clients. It’s something I teach all couples that I counsel early on as well, as appreciation begins at home!

  16. Hi Glyna, loved your video. Thanks for the reminder to appreciate people. I did a relationship course once, and they suggested to write little post it notes to people in your family, telling them what you appreciate most about them! I have my note ready to write on as soon as I’m finished typing!

    Have lots of fun Glyna, I love listening to you, you have a beautiful voice for video. bye for now, Julieanne

  17. Hi Glyna ~ Enjoyed your video & couldn’t agree more…what you give out comes back to you ten-fold! For me, it’s all about YOU (meaning everyone else, not me) and it is so enriching to know that I can help someone even if it’s a little thing like showing my appreciation (which is actually a pretty big thing!). As always Glyna, I truly appreciate YOU sharing 🙂 Christine

  21. Hi Glyna
    Thanks for the Appreciation Marketing. Too many a times we tend to be so laid back and not show our gratitude to friends and loved ones. We must make an effort to make it a point to let allow our counterparts be aware of our appreciations be it small or big.Its good that we have this book as a reminder of what we should not neglect in our daily lives. I believe that when you give whole heartedly you will get back in return ten folds.

    Hello Glyna,

    Thanks for the review! You have nailed it here. I think it’s too easy for network marketers (and other marketers as well) to forget about the human element that is so important in life and business. Everybody has heard the old saying “what goes around comes around” – this says it all.

    Thanks for the reminder of a very important key to happiness and success — appreciation. Expert success trainers tell us that if yo help enough others get what they want, you will get what you want. Most people want appreciation more than almost anything else. Believe it or not, for most people, appreciation and recognition is better than money.

    Because giving appreciation costs us very little but it worth a lot, it is a good deal, and it is a win-win because we feel good about ourselves while we are making others feel good about themselves.

  25. Hi Glyna,
    Thanks for the reminder of appreciating your clients, friends, and family. It is so important in today’s market to keep in contact with people and tell them how you apprciate them on a more personal level. Your ease on the video is something I am going to strive to accomplish. You make it look effortless.


  26. Being grateful is critical to our success in life, not to mention our business.

    This was an excellent reminder, Glyna, of how our success is a composite of the assistance of those around us. We really need to acknowledge that from time to time.

  27. When you think about it, Appreciation Marketing is really a key factor in developing great relationships with our prospects/clients/customers. Expressing gratitude for ‘following’ you or become your ‘friend’ is the beginning of the relationships you are developing online.

    This sounds like a great book Glyna and I am putting it on my list. 🙂

    I like how you expanded appreciation marketing beyond business. I’ve been trying to teach my kids the 7 habits by Stephen Covey and one thing we’ve been doing at home is called the Emotional Bank Account. We created a box to represent the bank account and we’ve been putting in “deposits” which in essence is the appreciation that you’re talking about. We’ve become more conscience in thanking each other and giving compliments. The children love it and can’t wait to read their “deposits” every night.

    Hi Glyna,

    Thanks for sharing this important topic, your great video and your passion. It is easy to see that your genuinely care about your customers, prospects and friends that are a part of your life and appreciate what they add each day to your life.

    One of the best feelings is to be able to bring a smile to someone’s face and often times that can be done simply by saying “thank you” or “I appreciate you”.

    No matter how self confident we are, we often need to be acknowledged and appreciated for what we do. Even for the little things that people take for granted. It takes very little time to do and the effect can last a lifetime.

    It is one of the best ways to solidify a relationship and that’s what we need to do in order to have a successful business and life.

    I appreciate this great post…
