Tips and Tricks for Better Letters: Following the proper formatting is only the first part of writing a letter that gets action. The content of a poorly formatted letter is unlikely to be read _ in one study of HR personnel, more than 80% said they’d throw out a resume if there were only one or two errors in the cover letter _ but even a well_formed letter is unlikely to be acted on unless the content is powerful and engaging. Once you have their attention, you need to create interest in whatever you’re offering. Promise to solve their problems _ with a great product, with your services, with a partnership, with whatever it is you’re writing about.
Body: The body of the letter has three parts: an introduction that should explain who you are and why you are writing, a middle part that gives the details and persuades your reader to act, and a closing that tells your reader what action you expect or would like them to take. Valediction: (Left_aligned, two lines below the body) This is the line before your signature. For people whose name you don’t know, use “Faithfully yours” _ but avoid writing letters without finding out a name first.
