Why You Should Send Congratulations for Opening a New Business

Besides simple courtesy, congratulating a new business can bring you bonuses.

If you are seeking a job or clients, a new business means new opportunities. If you provide services they are likely to need, it pays to get your name and contact info into their hands.

Include your email address, phone, website, and social media handles in your message to make it easy to contact you.

If you had applied for a job with the company before they opened but didn't get hired, this note will keep you in mind in case of openings. While they may have filled their initial positions, they may realize they don't have the right mix or there may be some early departures.

Your well-wishes will show you support their operation and will put you in good stead for future opportunities. Be a supporter in getting out the word about their launch or grand opening. Follow them on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other platforms. Note the hashtags and handles used and repost them.

Even if you don't get their business or aren't hired, your support may lead to more leads on jobs or clients.
