10 Occasions in Business to Send a Thank You Note
Updated: Mar 25, 2022
When was the last time you received a handwritten card in the mail? You likely remember when it was, who sent it and how you felt receiving, opening and reading it. This is because receiving handwritten notes is no longer the norm so it stands out when someone takes the time to not only think of you and say something, but to actually write it by hand and send their sentiments to you on paper. It likely made you feel special, noticed and connected. Now, imagine if you receive a thank you letter from someone you do business with. It would likely stand out from the sea of emails and pre-printed mailers bombarding you for your attention.
