Today’s 1-minute small business tip for entrepreneurs is about thank you cards! They are simple and incredibly powerful. Sending a thank you letter to a new business connection is a way to get their attention, show them that you care, and remind them of who you are.
Frigibar President Shuly Oletzky recently wrote about her thank you note success in the Huffington Post, and I’ve included the link below. She has landed business partnerships and many new friends just by strategically sending letters. I have just started to send thank you letters, and have already seen benefits as well, including renewed business relationships.
Another friend and great entrepreneur, not mentioned in the video tip, Mike Veny sent thank you cards along with funny finger puppets. He would run into someone years later at an event and they would tell him they still had the puppet and remembered him because of this.
Learning is a part of being an entrepreneur, but so is being overwhelmed with the wealth of information available online and all of the tasks and responsibilities we have. We created the 1-Minute Small Business Tips for Entrepreneurs Video Series to focus on one tip in a minute that can be applied to your business today. Each tip will include an actionable step you can take.
