5 Reasons Why It’s Important to Celebrate the Small Stuff
Is a fun holiday coming up? Offer themed beverages and limited-time services! Did you hit your goals for the month? Celebrate! Did a service provider get promoted to a new pricing tier? Have a party! Celebrating the small stuff is a great way to keep the momentum moving at your business.
#1 Celebrating Boosts Morale
As hard-working professionals, sometimes we just need that one thing to look forward to in order to keep us energized. Celebrations help boost morale by helping to keep your team motivated and your clients looking forward to fun experiences at your business.
#2 Your Celebrations Can Be Used in Your Marketing Strategy
Celebrating holidays like Cinco de Mayo at your business can also be implemented into your marketing strategy. Try posting a flash sale on Instagram Stories or Snapchat where the first “X” amount of clients who come in and use a secret word, or screenshot the coupon on your story, receive a discounted service or product. You can also try creating special themed services surrounding your celebration. This helps incentivize clients to try new services and join in on the fun.
#3 Celebrating Makes Employees Feel Rewarded
Your employees put their heart and soul into the business, and celebrating achievements will make your team feel rewarded. Saying ‘thank you’ goes a long way!
#4 Celebrating Creates a Culture Around Goal Attainment
Goals can sometimes be scary. Celebrating little milestones on your journey to success can help your team stay focus and excited. Creating a culture around goal attainment helps your team stay on the same page, working towards the same dream. And you know what they say, “team work makes the dream work!”
#5 Celebrating Helps You Create Balance
We all get frustrated and burned out at work. Celebrations help balance hard work with fun and help mix up the structure of a usual workday. Sprinkling in fun and playtime helps keep your work environment positive and healthy.
