Expressing Gratitude (and a giveaway!)
Do you send thank you cards?
I have been collecting some great articles lately on writing thank you’s, so I wanted to share them with you:
- Alt Summit recently published a post on expressing gratitude, emphasizing the importance of following up later to let someone know their actions affected you in a significant way, whether it’s a client or a friend.
- Moo.com talked in this post about creating lasting relationships by taking the time to say thank you with a handwritten note. I love their perspective that saying thank you with a handwritten note helps build relationships, shows you care and is also a chance to showcase your creativity.
- This etiquette advice on sending thank you notes and letters recommends sending a thank–you note as soon as possible, preferably within two or three days. They also say the sooner you do it, the easier it gets. And more importantly, keep it short and sweet, which also makes it easy.
I know most people don’t hand write letters anymore. Typing an email or a text is easier and faster for most. People don’t like to hand write anything anymore either.
It’s always been very important to me to write thank you cards, whether I’m thanking someone for a gift or a meeting. I want them to know how much I appreciate their time and attention.
So I’m giving away this set of four thank you cards, with the nice Marvy pen pictured, AND first–class stamps included.
For a chance to win a set of thank you notecards, leave me a comment by 7:00 pm on Tuesday. I would love to hear who you would send a thank you note to.
UPDATE: Comments are closed to enter to win the thank you notecards.
