- Handwrite it. Emails and texts are convenient and quick, but they just aren’t as memorable as a handwritten card. There’s something so personal and touching about being the recipient of a real, paper card that someone took the effort to write and mail. Handwritten notes will put you head and shoulders above your digital-only competitors.
- Express Yourself. Not sure what to write? Make it personal by starting with their name. Then, get to the point by thanking them directly for whatever you’re grateful for — a listing, a showing, a purchase, etc. Including a personal detail about your experience with them is a great way to show that this isn’t a canned message. Don’t forget to sign it!
- Personalize it. You don’t want to be unprofessional, but don’t be scared to show a little personality! Whether that means quirky stationery, stickers, or personalized doodles, the recipient will appreciate a human touch.
Everyone appreciates the personal message that a handwritten card sends! Make sure you’re making the most of this easy, highly effective tool.
