Contact Information: The first section of your letter should include your contact information and the contact information of the person you are writing, too. Also, include the date you are writing at the top of your letter. Letter Salutation: Unless you know the reader well and typically address them by their first name, you should include the person's personal title and full name in the salutation (i.e., "Dear Mr. James Franklin"). If you are unsure of the reader's name, include his or her title (i.e., "Dear Executive of Marketing"). If you are unsure of the reader's gender, simply state their full name and avoid the personal title (i.e., "Dear Jamie Smith"). If you are unsure of the reader's gender, name, and title, simply write, "To Whom It May Concern." Leave one line blank after the salutation.
Let us discuss the parts of a business letter. The Heading or Letterhead: It usually contains the name and the address of the business or an organization. It can also have an email address, contact number, fax number, trademark or logo of the business. Date: We write the date on the right_hand side corner of the letter below the heading. Reference: It shows the department of the organization sending the letter. The letter_number can also be used as a reference. The Inside AddressIt includes the name, address, postal code, and job title of the recipient. It must be mentioned after the reference.
