Welcome to the Age of Information where you can live stream a breaking news story on your iPhone while simultaneously checking emails, googling dinner recipes, and downloading cat memes. We can thank the digital revolution for bringing us here – computers, phones, and the internet have changed how we seek knowledge and communicate with one another forever.
While technology has made information more accessible, it’s also brought about a shift in the way we process it. We skim through social media feeds bursting with articles, videos and photos. Facebook and Instagram pages roll into one and despite having access to more information, it’s not uncommon for consumers to actually absorb less.
So if your customers are being inundated with information, how do you cut through the noise to get them to focus on you? It’s simple really. Reach out to them and thank them for their business and valuable time. And if you really want to stop them in their tracks, send them something they won’t find on Facebook: a handwritten note. Here are Printroom’s most frequently asked questions about with compliments slips.
What is a with compliment slip?
A DL sized printed paper containing all your business’s contact information with the phrase ‘with compliments’ appearing on the page, and room for a written message.
Why should I use them?
It gives a personal touch. Perhaps you’re sending out freebies to a potential business partner. Or simply shipping an order. Either way, the person receiving your goods has likely never had a conversation with you or your staff. A handwritten note thanking them for their purchase, or introducing them to your product, reminds them that there is a person on the other side of that parcel who values your time and business.
What do I write on them?
This comes down to what you’re sending them with. If you’re sending a box of freebies to a well-known celebrity in the hopes of gaining some exposure, then tell them how much you love their work and how you think your product will benefit them. If it’s a customer’s 10th order – tell them how much you appreciate their business. Just remember to keep it short and sweet!
