At the end of a busy day, one of your many chores may be to collect your mail and sort through it. Amid the usual collection of junk mail and bills, you occasionally receive a personal piece of mail that brings a smile to your face. How much do you enjoy getting a handwritten card for a special occasion or a thoughtful thank you note from someone you know?
If you’re a business owner, wouldn’t it be a wonderful idea to send a welcomed thank you note to your clients? The easiest and most economical method is probably a form letter or email where you simply fill in their name and maybe mention the product or service they purchased from you. Nice, but…does it really send that sincere, appreciative message you want them to receive, or does it fall just a bit into the “junk mail” category?
We think there’s a unique and genuine way to truly thank your business clients. A thank you photo card shows you care about them, that you would like to be remembered when they need to refer friends and family, and a reminder to come back to you when they need you again.
First step, your thank you card needs to be handwritten by you (including the envelope). If you need a little help getting started, here’s an easy format on how to write a customer thank you note (hyperlink for credit: https://www.helpscout.com/blog/how-to-write-a-killer-thank-you-note/)
Then, increase the “wow” factor by including a photo of that memorable purchase with your client. Help them remember the joy they felt that day by capturing their excitement with a personalized photo you’ve printed and inserted in one of our custom photo cards.
Here are a few examples of some of our clients and other business owners who could use these thoughtful thank you card ideas:
We recommend using your local photo lab to print your photos. We also like Walgreen Photo since you can order online and pick up within a few hours.
