A Note About Thank You Notes

by | Apr 27, 2012 | Business-end-of-things | 4 comments

This blog is to remind me to say thank you.

Actually, I love to say thank you, especially to my clients…and I do it often.  But I’ve never sent a physical thank you note to a client in my life.

That’s gotta change.

I figure there’s one rule:  Keep it simple and sincere.  No ulterior motives. No biz card included. No upsell implied.

It might not even hurt to include a small gift, like a Starbucks card…but no branding elements.

What to say?  Well, there are a lot of thoughts about that, and below is a list of some of the best suggestions I’ve been able to find on the subject.  Glean what you can, but remember, the best approach is simple and sincere…no ulterior motives.  Thank you is thank you.

    Greetings, Dave! Some people have differing views about sending a thank-you note after a job. This blog entry includes comments made by Don LaFontaine on the subject:

    I always send a handwritten note with a Starbucks card to my corporate clients after the first gig. I do include a couple of business cards as I ask for referrals in the note.

    However, I confess I haven’t sent one to my audiobook clients, so your post today is a good reminder for me. Gratitude is a necessity if you want to attract more good things to your life!

    Thank YOU for this memory-jogging idea, and have a wonderful weekend!

    Cordially,
