How to Throw a Client Appreciation Party

If you work in sales or with clients you may consider hosting a Client Appreciation Party to give back to your wonderful clients.  I recently threw just that and I have a few suggestions on how to make an impact while keeping it very simple.  

To start pick the appropriate venue:  I picked a nice local park that had picnic tables, play structures and large grass areas.  This was perfect for families and it was cheap to host there (read: free).

You don't have to serve lunch or dinner; I offered beverages and dessert and so the start time of the party was after dinner.  We have a local vendor, Pop's Emporium that makes gourmet popsicles that are to die for!  Some of my favorite flavors include Cookies & Cream, Pistachio, Cheesecake and Watermelon.  There is something for everyone's taste and they won't last long.  I highly suggest you consider having these at your next party if you are local!

I also had a local professional photographer, Melissa Gotelli on hand for clients to take family photos.  In the invitation I alerted everyone that she would be there so they would be prepared.  My thought was that clients could save themselves the time and the money to take Christmas photos and use these instead.

Towards the end of the evening I hosted a raffle where everyone got tickets based on their attendance and the clients they've referred to me in the past.  Lastly, everyone left with a very small token of my appreciation; a lotto ticket with a tag that read, "I won the LOTTO with you as my client!"
