Nothing impresses more than a handwritten note or card. In today’s tech world, the fact that you’ve taken the time to sit down and express your thanks to someone, or your congratulations or your sympathy, shows the receiver of your note how important they are to you.
In business, dropping a note on your correspondence cards – not the company letterhead – in your own handwriting – is a great compliment to the receiver. Whether it’s a note to the new business contact you met at a party or a handwritten thank you to a service person who did something exceptional for you, it shows you care and you’re aware.
Keep a stack of cards or notes handy, with a pen and stamps, so you’re always ready to dash off a note in a timely fashion.
