Building Better Business Relationships

By: Elizabeth Bambara

Business Thank You Notes and Cards help your customers to know you a little better. They will like how you make them feel. They begin to trust you even more than they already do because of the effort you made to sending a note or card. A simple, but vital step in building better business relationships. But when should you send one?

Writing Business Thank You Notes or Cards...

There are numerous occasions that you could send out notes or cards expressing your appreciation. They will probably be surprised to receive a thank you from you. Very few people do, so you will stand out from the competition. That being said, don't be surprised if you hear from the recipient.

The note or card should be brief and to the point. But warm and friendly.

Send a note or card for a telephone conversation, a meeting, presentation, obtaining new or increased business, business anniversary, your customers birthday, and for referrals.

Your note or card should be in your handwriting. Sent out quickly. Never give your prospect or customer time to forget about you.
