Selling to churches, do you say "God bless"?

Now I am not looking to ask the age old question of creator and existence but rather, regardless of your belief system, do you say "God bless" at your sign off when communicating to churches you are looking to do business with?


It feels tacky to me to say it just because they are a church.


What do you do?

I treat them the same with a thank you or best regards in an email.Β

That is what I am thinking, but on a deeper level, aren't we supposed to mirror/connect with our prospects? IDK if that means to mirror that much but I am currently trying to get a better grasp on connecting and earning trust/value with my prospects.

I don't say it first, I just treat them like any other prospect. If they say "god bless" to me, I might say "you as well," or say it to them first on the next call.Β

That seems like a mutually appropriate approach so you don't come off overbearing. Do you have any specific questions you ask that are tailored for a religious non-profit organization?

I work with a ton of non profits, some religious and some not. My questions are the same for both, because regardless of if they're religious or not they generally have the same goals (to support a worthy cause.)

"stay blessed" definitely has a good ring to it.Β
