Never underestimate the power of events that show appreciation to your clients. Customer appreciation events are a great tool to express gratitude, create positive brand image and maintain relationships. Organizing a quirky and engaging client appreciation event is particularly important for the businesses that depend on building connections, such as real estate agencies.This is what April Ross of the Venture 303 real estate agency had in mind when she decided to throw an ultimate pet-friendly customer appreciation picnic for the families she serves in West Denver. Some wonderful memories were made as families enjoyed the outdoor BBQ, participated in face-painting and game activities, and had the dogs play off leash. I was happy to be there to capture the day and photograph the families with their beloved pets, while making sure to include the company branding in the picture.
