Digital Thank Yous

It was my daughter’s 4th birthday a couple of weeks ago, and of course she was spoiled rotten by friends and family.

Of course in this busy life we all lead, finding time to write thank you letters is a tricky business. Cue technology!

First up we hopped onto Facebook and created video messages of thanks. If you have a webcam it should be remarkably straightforward. Just go to ‘compose message’, click on the video button and record!

The quality isn’t brilliant, but the ease of use definitely makes up for that (image below)

For those not on Facebook, we used the Voice Memos app on the iPhone to record a very simple message of thanks.

Clicking on the red circle starts and stops recording, and then you can email the mp4 file wherever you want.

Check out a sample thank you below!

I promise you, this took hardly any time at all, and I know the people who received their digital thank yous absolutely loved them!

  1. Digital Thank Yous, what a great idea! I like the personal touch and the uniqueness of it. It’s funny how I hadn’t paid any attention to that feature on message section of facebook – too often we miss what’s right in front of us, always doing what we’ve always done. Watch out – you might be my recipient of a trial video message.

    • Thanks Craig – I stumbled across that feature kinda by accident! I know I’ll be using it again.
