Tips + Solutions:
ZEF'S TIPS FOR SENDING EFFICIENT NOTES:
I am not a "snail mail" kind of person; if I can avoid standing in post office lines - I will! I agree that a handwritten note is much more powerful than sending a note via email. I make a huge effort for big occasions and when I can.
However, we live in a day and age where we have the tools to work and live smarter.
I have learned a more efficient way of sending notes, which is most effective when I want to send notes quickly/immediately!
I have used Paperless Post to send thank you notes, referrals, recommendations, birthday greetings, "job well done" notes, and many others.
LIRONE'S TIPS FOR STRUCTURING RECOMMENDATIONS:
JOANNE'S TIPS FOR MANAGING CONTACT WITH CLIENTS:
The bottom line is keeping top of mind. You want repeat business but you also want referrals.
The key is to never ask someone to pass along your information. Always ask them to give you the contact information of the people who could use your service. When this happens, always send a thank you note, whether you get new business or not.
