The Absolute, Most Definitive, and Best Way to Say Thank You

Written by Brandon Schaefer, Founder of eioLIFE

Saying thank you is one of the most important things an entrepreneur can learn how to do correctly. Saying thank you in a proper, polite, timely, and etiquette manner can make all the difference in the world. By far, the absolute, most definitive, and best way to say thank you, is by writing a hand written card or letter.

There’s something about putting ink to paper, it’s an art form, it’s an expression that takes time to do, and people on the receiving end will remember it forever, especially because so few people do it. We live in a world of e-cards and automated thank you’s, don’t get me wrong, these have a time and a place, what I am talking about is making a unique difference for yourself, and separating yourself from the pack.

I personally understand the true value of writing a highly personalized thank you note, and attribute my continued long term success with clients because of this. A hand written note says you care, it says you took the time to buy a piece of stationary, write the note, seal the letter with your own tongue, and place the stamp on it. Wow, now that sounds great, that sounds powerful, this is why writing a hand written note makes a difference.

You are most likely saying by now, ok, I get the hand written note thing, I am in, but what do I write in it? What you write in a highly personalized hand written note is very brief, this is an example of one of mine.


Thank you very much for your continued support of my live training seminars. Many of your staff still reach out to me from years ago saying how much value they received from the live training seminars and how thankful they are that you invested the time and money to have them trained. Ed, not only have you made a difference in my life, but you have made a huge difference in many of your employees lives as well. I personally wanted to thank you and look forward to many more years of continued success together.

Thank you,

You get the drift, I am sincere when I write this, this is really the way that I feel, these are my true emotions bleeding out onto the page. Let your emotions hang out their in a thank you note, you’re not going to go wrong with a hand written thank you note, it’s in your effort, not in the result you are looking for.

I’m not going to go on and on, I’ll write more later on timing and some other small perks you can add with a proper hand written note, the main point is that you start to take the time to write hand written thank you letters today. If you need help, reach out to me directly, Brandon Schaefer, and I will personally assist you, after a couple tries, you will be assisting me, I guarantee it.

To wrap it all up, remember, the absolute, most definitive, and best way to say thank you is to take the time to write a highly personalized thank you note or letter. My ask is that you report back to me, let me know what worked for you, and what I may include in any future articles.
