Further things to consider when writing announcement letters to consumers
Announcement letters are letters that notify or give information about a certain occasion, special event, or occurrence that people are required to be aware of. They could be for a concert, a special sale, or even a graduation party. Announcement letters are usually informal and state clearly and concisely what the event/occasion is and what further actions the recipient should take. Announcement letters can be used in many personal and business situations. In personal situations these letters may be used, for instance, to announce a birthday, death, wedding, or graduation. In the business world, such letters may be used to announce a new policy, change in management, financial summaries for investors, grand sale, or actions against a customer due to nonpayment.
Announcement letters should be written in a straightforward manner stating all the necessary facts. Clearly state why you feel the occasion is important. If you are delivering bad news, be optimistic for the future. Bold and highlight the points that need focus so that the content is clear to the reader. Add any information which you think your reader might want to know and do not miss out any important detail. End the letter on a positive note.
Letters to Consumers
Letters to consumers are letters sent to people who purchase goods and services in retail for their own use. These could be response letters from companies to respond to claims, requests, or queries from consumers. They could also be inform letters to notify consumers of the best products on the market or about the termination of a previously offered service. Letters to consumers are formal and are usually printed on the company letterhead. Depending on the issue and the nature of the content, the letters can be addressed to specific people or generalized for all consumers.
Letters to consumers usually follow all the rules of formal letters. First, the senders' and the recipients' addresses must be well stated and placed properly in the letter. Then, the subject of the letter must be clearly stated so that the recipient can quickly know what the letter is about even before he/she reads it. When it comes to the content, be concise but thoroughly discuss the subject. Mention any action the recipient is supposed to take and why this is important. If there are any enclosures, explain them briefly in the letter. Close the letter with your name, signature, and job title.
