What is a Handwritten Note Action and why should I send one? A Handwritten Note allows you to send a one handwritten note and ship directly to your potential leads/contacts. The goal of the handwritten note is to create a super personal touch during the sales process - usually as a closing action or follow-up to an already established conversation. At this point, the lead already knows you by name and may even have had a conversation with you on the phone or in person. Ideally, this would be the encouragement to open the letter - the personalization and the name recognition.
