Everyone (especially mark),
What is the etiquette regarding the senders contact info in a thank you?
After sending many TY's to people I know, or at least people that have my email, I have received a number of emails back about either: how nice they were, or regarding an interest to keep in touch. How can I evoke this same response with people who don't have my email, unless I include it in the TY.
A little background:
I recently graduated college and just returned from 5 week post graduate study trip in SE Asia. I am in the process of writing thank yous to both: eveyrone that's helped me during college, as well as all the people I met overseas. About 40 TY's.
I am very interested in building my network but do not want bother people that have no interest in being in it. I feel if recipients have my email many will ask to keep in contact, which lets me know that they are "for sure" interested in staying in contact. The alternative is not including an email, and me blindly contacting everyone in 3 months.
Is there a correct way to get the result I want? or am I thinking of TY's as serving too many purposes, besides genuine thanks?
Sorry to all the High D's for the long post, including Mike and Mark.
