Thank You for Your Business Note

Category: Thank Yous

Whether you’re just starting out in a new business venture or you’ve been at it for a while, maintaining relationships with your customers is so important. A heartfelt “thank you for your business” note, at the right time, is an invaluable tool for fostering relationships.

Once you know how to create a meaningful message to thank your customers (or business partners), you’ll be well on your way to sending notes that help foster and strengthen ongoing relationships. Here are a few tips about how to write a thank-you for your business note to help get you started.

Why Are Thank You Notes Important?

Maybe you often send a thank you note for every little gift, or maybe you’re totally new to this form of communication. Either way, learning how to write an effective “thank you for your business” note is a great skill for any business owner to have. This underrated method of outreach builds a relationship with customers that’s hard to get from other business communications. When you send thank you notes, you can:

  • Show the recipient that you care. Your recipient will see that you care about them personally, and you care enough to spend time sending this type of note.
  • Tailor messages to specific customers. Personalize your note and address it to a specific person, which can help make them feel special.
  • Build a personal connection with your customers. You may even make their day a little brighter, which is good for your business in the long run.
  • Retain more customers. When customers feel appreciated, they’re often more likely to be a repeat customer.

How to Write a Thank You For Your Business Note

Here are some helpful tips to structure and create an effective and engaging “thank you for your business” note:

  1. Start With the Opening

Consider the tone you want to take before writing. Do you want to sound formal in your business thank-you note? Do you want to sound personal or casual? This will depend on the type of business you have, and any existing relationship with the customer. Some tried and true openings include:

  • I hope this note finds you well.
  • Thank you so much for _____.
  • Just wanted to send a quick note of thanks for _____.

Feel free to tailor your opening so it fits with the vibe of your business. The message that follows will continue to sound authentic and heartfelt that way.

  1. Keep It Brief, But Be Memorable

Keep your thank-you note to exactly that ⁠— a thank you. Pitching other services or products at the same time may make your thanks come off an insincere, even if that’s not how you meant it. You can, however, offer a promo or future discount as a gesture of your thanks.

Also, a thank you for your business note should include a message that’s memorable, too. One great way to craft something memorable is to add personal touches as much as you can, which customers are likely to notice. Details like handwriting and signatures show the recipient that you value them since you’ve taken the time to create something special for them.

  1. Be Prompt

Send your note out shortly after the event you’re thanking the person for, whether that’s a purchase, a meeting, or booking a service.

  1. Be Distinct

If you’re including the note in a package you send to the customer, make it a different size than the rest of what’s included in the mailing. This can make your note or card more noticeable so your customer doesn’t miss the personal touch.

  1. Pick An Appropriate Closing

Just like your opening greeting, your closing signoff should fit in with the overall tone of the message you just wrote and the products or services your business offers. If you’re thanking a close friend for helping you with an event, for instance, signing off with “Your friend” will work. If you’re thanking a customer you don’t know well for buying something from you, you’re going to want a closing that’s not as familiar.

Some common closings include:

  • All the best,
  • Best regards,
  • Sincerely,
  • Cordially,
  • Many thanks,
  • Kind regards,
