It’s important to show an organization or individual that you recognize and appreciate their confidence in your business. Letting someone know that you recognize what they’ve done for you can also encourage future business and referrals. Fostering your business relationships in this way can result in valuable partnerships between your organization and others. Follow these steps to write a "thank you for the referral" note:

  • Greet the recipient professionally - Include your salutation and greet the recipient using their last name. Greeting them in this manner conveys a sense of professionalism and respect.
  • Express your gratitude - Be specific about the nature of the referral and explain how the referral helped your business. Sharing how their referral created a specific outcome will emphasize your genuine appreciation.
  • Conclude and pledge to return the favor - Write a brief conclusion, letting them know that you will return the favor with referrals and can also show your appreciation.
  • Include your contact information - Include your direct phone number and email address to encourage a friendly relationship. This can lead to additional business referrals or add to your professional network.
  • Proofread and send your note - Have a friend or colleague review it to catch any misspellings or other writing errors.

Knock their socks off! You can fully seize the opportunity presented by an incoming prospect call by following up with a quick thank you note and at least your business card, if not a full magazine. On the call, mention that you’ll send them a magazine, and ask for their mailing address. Then you can include your business card and a nice handwritten thank you.

Whether you want to thank your amazing client for a 5-Star review, show a key industry partner your appreciation for a referral, or even just thank a prospect for giving you a call to discuss the project, writing a simple thank you note is an easy way to show you’re thinking of them and you appreciate them.
