Thank-You Notes Pay Off

Last summer I attended a panel discussion about working with the media. After it was over, I went home and sent handwritten thank-you notes to the panelists. That’s the only reason I can figure out how the Rocky Mountain News tech editor, Darrell Proctor, knows who I am. He was one of the recipients of my notes and suggested me for this week’s regular column, My Cyberlife, which appears in today’s issue.

Keep up those handwritten notes and contacts. You never know when they’ll pay off!

Excuse me while I go write another thank-you note.

  1. Thanks for the recommendation. I’m a first-time unknown author with no money for advertising. I never bothered to look for the physical address of people that have helped me, but I will in the future.

  3. I think you are totally on target with this one. I usually try to hand-write thank you’s, but have fallen off lately because of my own disorganization — but in the past, this has been a very good technique for me. It makes you stand out, because very few people do this anymore. My current plan is to make up a desktop box of notecards, so it so convenient that I don’t have an excuse not to send them.
