MAKE SURE TO FOLLOW-UP & STAND OUT DOING SO Sending a follow-up email is good, but you want to make sure you're remembered. Try sending either a hand-written thank-you note or even an online greeting. Mitchell recommends using SendOutCards.com, which allows you to customize your digital cards for a set price. After meeting someone who she's now very close to at a convention, Mitchell sent the professional a card from the site. It made a memorable impression on the professional, who classified it as quite creative. She was even able to include her own handwriting and a snapshot the two took at the conference.
