The excitement and happiness that comes from receiving a handwritten letter is so unique. It's a love letter to your customers.

Just imagine the joy of receiving a thoughtful message in the mail.

Handwritten letters make your customers feel valued and heard — something we can't say about an email or a text.

A handwritten letter shows you care about your customers because it takes time, money, and effort to send one. When someone takes the time to send something physical in the mail, it's a sign of appreciation for their business.

If you've been wondering how you can better connect with your customers through snail mail, here are some ways to use handwritten letters in your business:

  1. Send thank-you notes after an event or meeting
  2. Announce new products or services
  3. Remind them of their next appointments with you

Do your best to insert a heartfelt thought or something a bit more personal about the relationship your business has with each client.

There's something special about receiving a handwritten letter. It's a connection that doesn't exist with email or text messages. It's like receiving a handwritten note from a friend, or someone you admire. You know that they took time out of their busy day to sit down and write this letter just for you.

It makes you feel good and the excitement and happiness that comes from receiving a handwritten letter is difficult to replicate via email or even text message.

In fact, studies have shown that people actually prefer letters over email when it comes to customer service inquiries — even if the response time is slower!

Receiving mail is a lost art. Just think about how many times you've received a handwritten letter or card in the last month. It's both an exciting and meaningful experience for the recipient. They are reminded that they matter, and that someone took time out of their day to send them something thoughtful and personal.

A handwritten note can make a big difference. It shows that you've taken the time to consider your customer and their needs, rather than just sending out yet another email campaign.

Customers want to know that they're valued, and sending them a handwritten note makes them feel special.

If you're planning on sending out holiday cards or birthday cards, why not send one directly to your customers? You'll be surprised at how much of an impact it can have on their overall experience with your company — especially if they're feeling overwhelmed by other companies around the holidays.
