To take advantage of this offer, stop by before March 27 to reserve your X-12. We look forward to making your yard work more enjoyable.
Since the customer is already buying from you, the purpose of this letter is not to hard-sell your product, but to let your customer know that you are interested in doing further business. Often, this letter can be used to sell a product or service that the customer has not bought from you before, simply because their ordering routine tends to overlook certain available products or services. The tone of the letter will vary depending on the customer. A very important customer should receive a personal, friendly letter, while a lesser-known customer may receive a more formal one.
1 Open by expressing continued interest in doing business with the customer.
2 Introduce the product or service you are selling to the customer, stressing its benefits to the customer.
3 If appropriate, offer added incentives for the customer to buy your service or product.
4 Instruct the customer on how to proceed with the order.
5 Thank the customer for continuing to do business with you.
