Successful people keep in touch with the people they know. Things can get hectic during the holidays, but it is the perfect time to go through your contact list and send a brief email. It's important to remember that we are all more likely to do business with someone we know. Sending a brief note to the people you haven't seen for a while keeps you on the top of their mind and lets them take a look at your website to see what you have been up to. It's a new kind of social networking tool.
As 2011 winds down, take time to make a list of the people who have helped you achieve your goals this year. Then send them a note to let them know how grateful you are for everything they’ve done to make your success this year possible.
