Corporate Thank You Cards Make Good Business Sense

By Edited Mar 2, 2016 0 2

There are many occasions where your business can benefit from sending corporate thank you cards. These personalized notes are a good way to express appreciation to your clients, vendors, and other businesses that you work with. But many people find corporate etiquette tricky. You need to know whom to send these corporate thank you cards to and what you should say in them. The following tips will help you decide when and where to send these.

Start by figuring out when you need to send thank you notes. Whenever someone does a favor for you or your business, consider thanking them. A new client referral, for example, is an excellent example of this. Not only are you thanking them for the current referral, letting them know your appreciation will mean they are more likely to refer new business to you in the future. Corporate thank you cards are also good to send to prospective customers who have heard your proposal and are considering doing business with you. Of course, don't forget about your loyal customers. If you have some clients who have been with you for a couple of years, you should thank them. Its better to send too many cards than not enough.

Timing is an important part of thank you cards etiquette. If you want to acknowledge a specific incident, don't delay in mailing out the card. Try to send out something within a week. Longer than that will be less effective. While your wording is important, don't worry to much about this aspect. As long as you are genuine, your message will be well-received. You don't need to write a long note. To be most effective, however, it will be personalized and a hand written note is the best. This doesn't mean that the whole thing needs to be written by hand. It is best to get printed corporate thank you cards and write your note underneath. This combination will save you time and make your appreciation seem more genuine.

You don't need great writing skills to use thank you cards effectively. If you are unsure of your wording, write the message on a separate piece of paper and have others read it over before you send it out. Ask them to look for typos and to critique the wording. While you want to avoid all typos, pay extra attention to the spelling of the person's name. You can also ask someone else in your office to write the note for you. If you do this, don't let it mail out until you have read it and gave it your personal approval. You should be the one who hand writes the note and signs the card. Because of that you want to be sure that it conveys the message that you want to send.

You will find that there are many benefits to sending out corporate thank you notes. Although you should always send them to show honest appreciation, you can also enjoy the benefits that they bring. This small investment can bring you more referrals, new business, and a closer relationship with others in your community.
