I’ve written several posts recently on the topic of writing thank you notes. The first one in early March discussed two ways to differentiate yourself from your competitors with one of those ways being the use of handwritten thank you notes. The second offered several different resources to help improve your note writing techniques.
It takes extra effort to write a thank you note, especially for someone whose handwriting is as poor as mine. But then it’s all made worthwhile when I receive this, excerpted from an e-mail sent to me by one of my organization’s senior managers.
I wanted to thank you for the gracious hand-written note you sent after our last FIC meeting. It sits on my desk and reminds me that in this age of im and emails and voice mails, a simple note like yours gives gentle pause to the day.
Now that’s what I’m talkin’ ‘bout!
