Writing an effective client business letter

Writing an effective client business letter

Simply use the powerful AEIOU formula as a handy guideline to writing business letters that will be read.

Captivating layout

Ensure the layout and design of the letter remains visually pleasing.

Use minimum 12-point font (recommend Arial, Times Roman, Calibri or Perpetua)
