Thank You BLOG

People love to be appreciated, and that includes your clients!

More business can be generated from sending thank-you cards/notes than any other activity and implementing a simple daily ritual of writing 5 – 10 cards per day can dramatically increase your business. That’s a fact you can take to the bank.

We’re told this all the time, we are in the relationship business! What does it take to connect with and make someone feel special? It’s doing that extra bit, going that extra mile, doing what’s not expected.

Put yourself in the client’s shoes. If someone were to send you an email thanking you for listing your home with them, or, someone taking the time to handwrite you a lovely note and mail it to you. Which would impact you more?

What a great way to make use of this unusual time that we’re living in! Why not carve out half-hour to hour per day to writing notes? It’s so personal and unexpected. Start this habit today!

Here are some thank-you note ideas that when implemented on a consistent basis, will definitely generate more leads to you. That is the name of the game, isn’t it?

With each card we suggest that you include your business card  with “Thank You” handwritten on it. In this electronic age, sending a thank you note is a refreshing and much appreciated way to say thank you.

All generations like it and a card will go a long way in keeping one’s memory of you in a very positive light. Some examples would be sending a note thanking people for introducing you to a new referral or client, for picking up the cheque at lunch, or just for being an inspiration.  


Whatever it is, if you are feeling gratitude for someone, send a note. Go for old school style.
