Quick tips for feedback, thank you

o Except for the phrase "thank you for the extension," use the phrase "thank you". It's classic for a reason.

o Use the word "you" more than "I" – especially in business. Studies at Duke University indicate that the word "you" is among the most convincing and powerful words in the English language.

O Send your note asap. For business interviews on the same or the very next day for gifts or sympathy within two weeks. However, there is no law on restrictions to give thanks. The late thank you is better than no thanks at all.

O Make sure it is specific rather than generic. This is easily done by stating the specific gift or favor and treating the specific person or spouse.

Avoid "Thank you group" notes. Every person (or couple) gets a thank-you note.

Send it the old way with a stamp. Unless you know about the fact that a person prefers email (especially in business or for major events such as weddings, showers for children, and christening), put it in the mail.
