Why use a thank you card?

thanks

It’s personal

Its personal especially if its hand written. Very few people make a habit of thanking the people they interact with on a business level. If its carried out, its by the oh so convenient email which has less and less impact. Taking time to provide a short personal message tells your audience you care. If you don’t believe me then wait till you receive one.

 

Helps you stand out

There’s very little that’s unique in this world these days so we need to be creative to stand out or just do some of the basics really well. You will get regular customers just by doing the simple things consistently well. These customers regard you highly and delight in telling others about the unusual. Sending them a personal handwritten note says so much more about you.

 

It’s appreciated

If you have ever received a personal note sent through the mail you will understand why it has such an impact over a personal note sent electronically (or nothing at all). People appreciate the time and the thought and it reflects how they interact with you.

 

It makes good business sense.

Using just the normal courtesies of life, a little of your time and you can establish a point of difference with the recipient. It makes even more sense when the card has a multitude of messages you can send. Yes you can thank someone but you can invite them, you can recommend them, you can make a suggestion that might not have the same impact any other way. Heaven forbid you could even send it to your staff!

Boxes ALWAYS get opened! Always. Just make sure to include your name and company very prominently. Avoid tube mailings, once you've opened them they tend to be hard to read due to their curl. Plus people will generally put the contents back inside of the tube and forget about it! ... See MoreSee Less
