“Hi” is overrated,
“Thank you” is underrated.
I work with many freelancers.
How do I know if they are a good fit?
How do I know if I can work with them long-term?
Their words of acknowledgement.
I process the payment,
Share the screenshot with the freelancer.
Normally, the response is:
“Received payment, thank you.”
Sometimes, the response is:
And… it’s odd. Really odd.
Some things are never outdated.
Saying thanks tops that list.
Someone filled in your survey?
Someone gave you feedback on content?
Someone confirmed the deal?
Someone set up a call on a weekend?
Say “Thank you.”
Always say “Thank you.”
If you want to stand out,
Say thanks & acknowledge others.
Do you say “thank you”?
P.S. Anyone too busy to say thank you will get fewer and fewer chances to say it.
