Letter Writing Tips
Always proofread your letter after writing it, check for sentence structure, grammar, spelling mistakes...
Proofread your letter again (and again) after you have revised it.
Keep the recipient in mind, and write in a way that he/she can easily understand the letter.
Don't use abbreviated dates, e.g. use November 19, 2004, and not 11/19/04
Be respectful when you write, even if you are writing a letter of complaint.
Business letter writing tipsBe concise and keep to the point, but don't leave out any important information.
Try to keep your letter short enough so that it fits on one page.
If your letter is more than a page long, use another page, don't use the back of the page.
If you have access to company (or personal) stationary with a letterhead on it, use that instead of regular paper.
