1. THE BEGINNING
This innovation initially came to life when…
Through life experience from home and work. I realised everything, thanks to the power of technology has sped up the old fashioned art of showing genuine thanks. Gratitude and thoughtfulness has fallen to the wayside. I developed Thankly as a convenient 3 steps in 3 minute solution to make appreciation easier. Handwritten cards + unique gifts that connect people and nurture relationships no matter how busy your life is, Thankly makes it easy to show gratitude, celebrate, sympathise and for corporate businesses. Strengthen network relationships + show authentic gratitude for their staff.
2. WHAT & HOW
The purpose of this innovation is to…
…make it easy to send a genuine note of thanks/gratitude and or a token for any occasion overnight across Australia.
It does this by…
…having a tech savvy user platform where customers can personalise their card and gift. Giving and receiving injects positivity for both parties involved and encourages feelings of gratitude, care, thoughtfulness and appreciation.
3. PURPOSE & BENEFITS
This innovation improves on what came before because…
Sending a Thankly handwritten card or gift, is more personal than an email or a text. For companies and businesses, sending a Thankly card or gift, strengthens relationships.
