Personal Notes

Personal notes are the thing that can seal a deal. It is always wonderful to find a small card sized envelope in your mailbox. You eagerly open it to find out who it is from and what it is all about. Just a message saying hello or a thank you for attending a meeting can be appreciated beyond a text message, a phone call or a page “like”.

The following list are some ideas on when and how to send a personal note. Always make sure these notes are short, to the point but definitely heartfelt!.

Send a note following a phone call that was important. It not only shows appreciation for the time it took to talk on the phone, but for accomplishing the task at hand.

If someone just stops in, a followup note is always appreciated for recognizing their visit and how nice it was to see them. Catching up on exciting news is important and can cement a relationship.

If someone sends a referral, a note is essential. Thank them for their trust in your abilities to take care of their referral and for any in the future.

Service can be everything and a thank you note for a job well done assures great service in the future and a possible client for life! Servers, mechanics, hair stylists and shopkeepers who went out of their way deserve a thank you and a note is definitely endearing!

A thank you note for joining an online mailing list requires recognition for taking the time to fill out the forms. And this note will be a surprise since the receiver will be expecting a text message and not a personal note! Make sure to say how excited you are in being able to build a new and great relationship!

Just like a RSVP card, a few days before an appointment, send a personal note stating how you are looking forward to your meeting. Confirm time and date and all will be well!

After a presentation or meeting,send a personal note thanking them for taking the time for the meeting. Even if they haven’t made a decision regarding the subject of the meeting, a personal note can get in a couple more points and explain some things even further. If they did purchase or sign the dotted line in the meeting, your note should again thank them for the time spent and to solidify the next step in the process.
