Sample business thank you notes. Do you have to send a thank you note after a job interview? Do you have to thank your customers? What about if someone refers some business to you? Or oh no, Boss’ Day- do you have to write a note to your boss?
The answer to all these questions is– it sure doesn’t hurt. People always appreciate a personal thank you note. Don’t you? Taking the time to say thank you not only shows your appreciation, but it will also help build relationships, whether it’s a client, a customer, or a co-worker.
3 Things to Remember:
- Always start the greeting by using the recipient’s name. You can begin with or without a standard salutation like “Dear” and use the recipient’s first name or Mr. or Ms.
- Be brief and specific. For example, if you’re thanking someone for taking the time to meet with you, mention something from your conversation.
- Always proofread your message, especially if it’s text or email. Make sure autocorrect hasn’t hijacked your note and be very sure you’ve spelled people’s names correctly.
