Looking around the world today there is enough busyness to make heads spin. People are running here and there, going to and fro trying to get the most from their day, their livelihoods and their lives. It takes a lot of energy to maintain positive attitudes. Truth be known, it doesn't take a lot of effort to support the nature of positive interaction.
In the business world there is also a grand plethora of accentuated busyness going on through the channels of marketing efforts, personal goals, bottom lines and reputation. Put the two worlds together and a connection is formed - good or bad. Isn't it time to get back to basics to reconnect?
When folks and businesses choose to join positive forces together through various paths of purchasing processes, referrals, business deals or osmosis there is an immediate connection, an introduction if you will, to get-to-know and experience the relationship's pros and cons at that moment. A type of partnership begins, sparking reactionary expressions which will hopefully serve both parties well. When a business or persons within a business have been deemed worthy of positive recognition several things may happen. For bystanders who have chosen to simply observe without taking any particular purchasing power with a business, positive word-of-mouth communications may likely occur, thus spreading mutual appreciation around a larger circumference.
For consumers and partnerships, repeat purchases and future, even profitable collaborations may ensue. Often these exchanges can be somewhat impersonal or even covert, removing the personal connection.
Then there is the unique by-stander, consumer or partner who prefers to take a different road where acknowledging a business with a complimentary letter of thanks or appreciation means keeping the lines of communication flowing and the doors of opportunity open. This person understands the art of communication and relationships.
Whole New Dimension
A business compliment letter adds a whole new dimension to the relationship between buyer and seller, even if no purchase has yet been made. But what kind of letter makes the most significant impact? Every complimentary letter should be unique because every business and every person within a business is unique.
Guarding the word "unique" is a critical component in writing a complimentary business letter. Keeping life's value personal and esteemed is part of the goal when writing a complimentary business letter. Sincerity, appreciation and delight delivered in positive tones are often unexpected in today's business structures. Take the time to express these elements within each unique letter.
Below is a sample letter which conveys these positive attributes. Tweaking letters to suit the pyramid of styles, from casual to formal and every style in between will be necessary. Sticking to human instincts which promote good will, appreciation and encouragement will always be a winning message.

While there is obviously a respectable statement being made when a business compliment letter is written; there is also an invaluably honorable composition being exposed. Character, ethical camaraderie and encouragement are being upheld in a world where integrity often seems to have slipped down deeply into the cracks of Forgotten-ville.
Whether a business compliment letter touches the heart, positively impacts the bottom line or simply acknowledges kindly, three main ingredients matter - integrity, respect and connection. On a business level such personal attention to detail can make heads turn for all the right reasons. On a personal level it feels good to be the focus of genuine appreciation.
So, write those complimentary business letters. Reinstating goodwill toward men is good for business and great for the spirit of mankind. By Andre Bradley
