Curtis Lewsey with his over 15 years of experience in the sales and marketing industry, has carved a remarkable path by understanding the true essence of relationships. Starting as a cold caller, he quickly realized the value of building genuine connections and earning referrals. This shift in focus, combined with a profound belief in the power of gratitude, led to Curtis co-authoring the national best-selling book, Appreciation Marketing® – How to Achieve Greatness Through Gratitude.

The success of the book opened doors to a global stage, where Curtis had the privilege of educating teams worldwide on the profound impact of implementing an Appreciation Marketing® strategy. The message was clear: in a world driven by technology, personal connections are the true currency of life. Inspired by this philosophy, Curtis founded AMcards, a groundbreaking business tool designed to create, strengthen, and nurture relationships in a tech-savvy world.

Although appreciation & gratitude seems like common sense, Curtis recognized that it’s not common practice in the business world. Customers often feel the love during a transaction, but when business is completed, there is often little to no follow up after the sale. AMcards helps businesses implement an automated Appreciation Marketing® Strategy- a simple, inexpensive and highly effective system for long-term follow up with real greeting cards.
