The Importance of a Sales Letter Writing

In today's world, where email has outpaced every other modes of communication, many people might wonder the need for letter writing. Emails, more precisely automated emails, can be sent at a fraction of time, when employing the resources required for developing a sales letter are compared. The truth, however, is quite contrary. An email can never achieve the impact that a well-written letter can generate. Be it sales, cover, or a presentation, in fact you cannot afford to ignore a sales letter.

What is a sales letter?

A sales letter is form of direct mail, may be an email, or printed mail, in which an advertiser sends a letter to a potential customer. How does a sales letter writing differ from writing an email? The difference between an ordinary email and a sales letter is that a sales letter is much more elaborate and eye catching, and if properly laid out, can be more enticing. This calls for the effectiveness of a sales letter when compared to emails.

What constitutes a winning sales letter?

The content of a letter should be planned well. This will help in a systematic and useful communication. A very effective way of writing a sales letter is by first jotting down the points and then elaborating each one. This is a fail-safe method and ensures omission of important highlights.

Language goes a long way in determining the success of a sales letter. The web has lot of examples of well-designed and planned sales letter those have failed to create the desired effect due to language constraints.

Remember, language is all about communicating to your visitors. It doesn't pay to brandish your command over language if the message is not clear and well understood by your targets.

Important language selection tips:

Always use formal language for business letters, cover letters. Personal letters can have a more flexible language. However, you should be judicious in selecting the tone for your letter lest it create an adverse effect.

Use a catchy headline. Remember, a headline is the first step to your success. A visitor will certainly not take the initiative to go through the rest of your sales letter if he doesn't find the headline attractive enough. You are at liberty to use an informal language here.

Try to make your points in least number of words. Remember that people do not have time to read long letters and will simply totally ignore the letter if it does not appeal to them in the first glance.

SEO copywriting should be done as if addressed to an individual. This will make the reader feel more comfortable, and make him feel as if his individual needs are being catered.

Be acquainted with all the latest writing techniques, which, are continuously evolving. Headlines, bullets, simple language etc, all go a long way in defining the effectiveness.

Different people need a different type of approach to be convinced. You cannot make your sales letter to suit each and everyone directly. However, sticking to the basics ensures that a judicious approach is maintained, that will help you address your target in a broader scale.
