Think how great you feel when you receive a nice note. We live in a fast paced, techno savvy age. Not everyone remembers how nice it was to receive a handwritten note in the mail. It is still such a welcoming way of staying connected and reminding others about you.
Especially in business, you will be making an extra effort with your handwritten note.
You will stand out from others that think an email is the way to stay connected with prospects, clients, and friends.
Did you attend a great networking meeting and made a new connection? Send them a “So nice to meet you” note. Did you have your first appointment with a prospect? Send them a “Looking forward to meeting with you” note. Did you make a sale? Send them a Thank-you note.
Don’t write the same thing in your notes. Take the time to customize the message, make it personal. People will appreciate it and remember you.
Don’t forget to include your business card! Put in two cards, that way the customer will be able to give one away as they are recommending you to one of their connections!
Do continue to be thoughtful and do send special e-mails, along with e-cards, there is nothing wrong with showing you care. That extra touch of the handwritten note will make you stand out and will be beneficial for you and your business.
