12 Days of THANKS - Day Four

Gregory Ciotti | December 16, 2011

On this fourth day of Christmas, the gift to your true love is four calling birds. PetSmart quotes the current price for four small canary songbirds at $519.96. You’re probably familiar with the famous yellow cartoon canary: Tweety Bird. Therein lies your affordable alternative ... instead of four canaries, one sentimental Tweety Bird doll for a mere $13 (MP3 Player Pouch included!).

Your Company’s True Love: Customers

Tweety reminds us of a perfect way to say “thanks” to your customers today. You guessed it—tweeting! Call out customers via Twitter to let them know how much they mean to you. Sing their praises to your followers and refer them some business. The 140-character challenge: make it personal, be sincere and leave them smiling.
