Further things to consider when writing direct marketing letters to business partners
Direct Marketing Letters
Direct marketing letters are letters written to persuade the recipients to purchase products or services in the absence of salespersons. If drafted correctly, direct marketing letters can be one of the most effective marketing tools for your business. They have been used by businesses to cut the cost of advertising and to inform their loyal customers about discounts and special offers. In most cases, they usually advertise single service or product line, especially one that is considered to generate great profit to the business. Direct marketing letters allow you to reach prospective customers and generate business.
Direct marketing letters should be sweet and to the point. Begin the letter with a provocative idea that captures the recipient's attention and makes him/her want to keep reading. Clearly state the top benefits of the product or service you are selling, giving practical and real life examples. If necessary, include testimonials from customers who have used the product or service. Write in a conversational style and use short paragraphs. Use an active voice too and interesting phrases that encourage the recipient to continue reading. Conclude the letter with a strong statement or argument that compels the recipient to respond or take the necessary action.
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.
