Thank You Notes 101

Posted by on Dec 14, 2010 in strategy, Uncategorized | 0 comments

“Thank You Notes 101” is the title I decided to give this blog post because it’s better for SEO, but I really wanted to name it “Why Bother With Thank You Notes” or “Thank You Notes and then some…” I know a lot of folks think that thank you notes are more in the realm of etiquette, but I believe they are not only a sign that someone has good manners, they also indicate what I refer to as “basic business savvy.” Not much else creates the same impression or positive social capital as a well written, genuine and timely thank you note. (Earlier this year, I even wrote...

As tough as things have been for most of us these past few years (we’re definitely included in this), I feel that I have so much for which to be grateful this Thanksgiving and now just need to know to whom I write the thank you card? Between finally getting out of dreary and “frosty” Seattle, thanks to Keith (my incredibly creative and talented husband) landing an amazing opportunity at what we’re pretty certain is his dream interactive agency in San Francisco, and a healthy and happy enough circle of family and friends, I thought I had been blessed enough.

Kudos to the University of Washington (UW) School of Law Career Planning folks for having a “Best Thank You” contest for the law students to enter because as they note in the blog post, “Networking with a good reputation as a trustworthy, amicable, and fair professional with integrity and the client’s interests at heart is the ideal every lawyer should aspire to.”  What do the 2 winners get?

My 3 Starbucks freebies

Today, I submitted what I consider 3 freebie Ask SandyJK answers to their “Got a great idea?” site and have already seen at least one other comment that’s in agreement with the “No Need to Say Thank You” policy Sbux appears to support: 3 ideas from BellaD: First off, the login from my starbucks.com registration should have populated the login when I was redirected to the Got an Idea site. 2nd, happy that y’all finally came up with a motivator to get people to register their cards (besides tracking just how much serious coin we are spending w/Sbux) in the...
