In an increasingly informal digital world, continuing to pull out pen and paper to write a thank you note is a way to distinguish yourself. The handwritten thank-you note speaks volumes simply as a medium and sends the message that you care enough to invest yourself personally in acknowledging another. The hand written thank you card is also one of the oldest and smartest forms of marketing out there. Here are 4 reasons why:
As the late American author and poet, Maya Angelou so eloquently put it: “People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
A hand written thank you card definitely puts a check in the warm and fuzzy column; so send Thank You cards and send them often. You never know what kind of an impact it could have on the recipient’s day. As an added bonus, studies show that those who express gratitude also benefit by experiencing better health and sleep, less anxiety, and more life satisfaction. Taking the time to write out your gratitude to another will benefit giver and receiver alike.
