As a business owner, or maybe you’re just looking to write someone a thank you letter. I wanted to give you some key tips that you can take to heart today, so that you can create the perfect thank you letter.
Should you send one? The first thing that you have to ask yourself is if you should send one out. If someone stopped by your office to say, “Hi”, I really don’t think that holds ground to send out a letter. Instead, you should send out thank you letters for receiving something, such as a gift, etc.
Be fast with it: Don’t sit back, wait a few weeks, and then send out the letter. Instead, you’re going to want to write one up right away. This way, it’s going to show that you truly care, and you didn’t put it off.
Make it short and sweet: A thank you letter doesn’t have to be a novel on what you want to thank him/her about. Instead, remind them what you’re thanking them for, and tell them a little about what you’re going to do with the gift, or what you’re thankful for.
Talk from the heart: Don’t find a template online, fill in the blanks, and send it out. Instead, you’ll want to write it from the heart. Think of something that will mean something to them, and don’t make it sound so generic.
Send it via mail: Yes, we’re in the technological era, but it’s always best to send it via the good old postal service. People still love to receive mail, and if you take the time to mail it out, you’ll show that you took some effort, rather than shooting over an e-mail on your lunch break.
Check the spelling: Like anything that you will send out over time, make sure that you get a spell check done, as well as check into the grammar. What you will find that if you get another person to check it out, you may catch errors that you weren’t able to notice.
Writing a thank you note / letter really isn’t that hard. Just create something from the heart, be short, and always make sure that you mail it out.
