GUIDELINES

  1. Make this letter quickly when you obtained and examined the complaint. When a client takes the time to submit a report, you can either keep his r her business. It is easier to please a current client than to invite a new one.
  2. Recognize the complaint and tell him or her your regret, referring to his or her issue or complaint.
  3. Shortly discuss that you are currently examining the problem and the actions that you are doing to solve it. If you want to explain only the actions on how to solve it, go to step 3.
  4. Describe the actions that you have taken to solve the client's issue.
  5. End the letter positively, It is your goal to make the client focus on the compensation that you are preparing, not the bad experience he or she has gone through.

Dear [Recipients Name],

Thank you very much for your frank comments regarding the level of service I have been providing so far. You mentioned that the quality of work has remained healthy, but that my sometimes curt attitude is getting in the way of how we communicate. Please be assured that I have no malicious intentions, and neither am I unwilling to work with you. It is simply a manner of working which I have gotten used to and am not very comfortable. I'm glad you pointed it out to me. You can be sure that I will be trying to improve my communication style in the coming weeks.

Sincerely,

[Senders Name]

Further things to consider when writing response letters to business partners

Response Letters

Response letters are letters written to provide answers or information requested in letters of inquiry. The main purpose of such letters is to satisfy the recipient with an action that fulfills his/her request. A response letter can be used to respond to a query about company's products and services or just to respond to a complaint. It makes the recipient feel valued and helps maintain strong relationships between the parties involved. A response letter also gives you an opportunity to clear up any misunderstandings with the recipient or ask questions. Response letters should be sent promptly, and all issues must be addressed courteously (even those that seem irrelevant).

When writing response letters, it is advisable to keep the message short and to the point, taking into account that the recipient may lack your expertise. Make sure to address the letter to the person who made the inquiry and mention that this is a response to that inquiry. Maintain a positive tone even if the letter contains negative information. Make your response as clear as possible. If you are responding to multiple questions, for instance, consider putting your answers in bullet form. Close by offering to give further assistance.

Letters to Business Partners

Letters to business partners are letters you write to people with whom you have some degree of involvement with their business dealings. A business partnership is a legal relationship formed when two or more people agree to run a business together are co-owners. When you make such a partnership, you need to write a letter to your business partners to convey your message clearly and strongly, and to keep a legal record of the partnership. The letter should be formal and must contain the partnership offer, names of all the business partners, and the terms and conditions of the partnership.

Letters to business partners should be written with a professional tone. They should conform to all the accepted business letters standards. State the purpose of the letter. Give all the necessary details regarding the partnership as outlined in the contract. Include the name and title of the recipient. Employ the appropriate formal salutations and closings. State the date clearly and mention any document that is enclosed with the letter. Close the letter on a positive note and sign it off with your name and title. Letters to business partners should be printed on the company's letterhead.
