Today’s Tip – The right way to write; Cover Letter: Proposal –
Cover Letter: Proposals are essential when cultivating/growing relationships with people. In business they are very important, business in any field. The point of a Cover Letter: Proposal is to get a person(s) attention, present your interest, and insure a continuous working relationship with them. This week we’ll go over a design for perfecting a Proposal and getting your point across while pulling in your reader. To start, you need to understand structure. A letter is set up in 3 paragraphs (which we have gone over before).
Paragraph 1 is all about them and the past. Paragraph 2 is your section to be direct about what your interest in them is. Paragraph 3 again is about them and the future, plus your farewells. When writing your first and second paragraphs remember to do your homework. Research, Research, Research!!! If there is one thing we tell clients, is Research! It saves your career, and keeps you from looking foolish. The more information you know about the person(s) you’re talking with, the more value you’ll bring to yourself, and your cause.
Finally, at the end of the week we’ll go over “Growing relationships with a few words”. Which will show you how to utilize the first and second paragraphs to your full advantage. When trying to get a person to notice you, knowing they are busy, you take on the two paragraph method. Which is different than the “I want something” Three Paragraph method. We’ll go over each paragraph this week while also explaining there purpose, and how they get it going. We’ll also show you what a nice Proposal looks like.
