With this week coming to an end, let us look at all three paragraphs together. Take a look and see the layout. You can feel how they flow into one another, working with each other. Use this as a template, not what we wrote, but how we wrote it. Each sentence has a purpose, each paragraph has its purpose. Utilize this while writing your proposal out to people. Research everything you can about any company you are writing to. Practice writing these letters to friends, family or even to imaginary people. See how they are received from those people and learn from doing.
“What I appreciate about BBR Productions Inc. determination has always been its selflessness. Working hard to bring possibility to life, starting out as a one person company in illustration then turning into a multipurpose company over its 15 year growth. Helping more than just artists find their own path, but companies, individuals, and people looking for an opportunity to bring their dreams to reality. If, at all, this letter is a representation of my gratitude for your company’s inspiration for my personal success.
I have a great desire to continue growing my success in my field. Over the last 5 years I have reached heights on a good deal of my own personal goals, finding motivation at every turn. I am aware that you have signed projects on, such as Martyrd and Erin Chase, allowing them an outlet to move forward. Teaching, guiding them on how to best create opportunity for themselves. I would like the chance to present myself in an appointment based meeting to talk this out further in person, as I have a great ear for absorbing information and utilizing it.
I am happy to also see your work with Martyrd has lead them to another level. I am excited to see BBR Productions Inc. involvement with (another client) in the coming months. As I saw on your website you are involved in a few more development projects in many other areas. I wish you a grand year, and may all your ventures continue moving forward with success!”
“Peace in harmony, until again…”
I did say today we’d go over the two paragraph style. When building relationships with individuals or companies, you can start by sending a letter, or post card to them using only the first and third paragraph. Leave out the “What you want” section. Grow your relationship with them for about 3-5 months. Each month (every 3 weeks-ish) mail, or email them this letter… or a post card. Always showing you are watching their efforts and that you support them. Adding a “If you need me to advertise anything, or help you promote, or (add helpful services here)” that will also help you cultivate a great relationship with people.
Once those 3-5 months are through, than you can start adding your second paragraph into the fray. Building relationships helps solidify possibilities more than just contacting a person for the first time asking for something. You’ll be amazed at how hard work, dedication, and effort really pay off in the end. And, by end, we mean your beginning! We have included a template for writing a proposal letter, what it should look like if you are emailing, or mailing a letter. The post card layout is different than a letter, though, this should help you on your way.
