Краткий справочник по деловой переписке
Типы деловых писем
Ответ на запрос. Предложение
Помните, что вы начинаете общение с вашим возможным клиентом. Ему будет приятно прочитать, что ваша фирма была бы очень рада с ним сотрудничать и помочь ему с выбором товаром. Поэтому непременно высылайте с каталогами, прайс-листами и т.п. небольшое сопроводительное личностно-ориентированное письмо.
Постарайтесь писать ответ на письмо-запрос в тот же день, когда вы его получили. Тем самым вы не только покажете свое внимание к потенциальному клиенту, но и опередите своих конкурентов.
Если у вас нет запрашиваемого товара, необходимо написать письмо-отказ. Выразить сожаление в письме и написать отказ - недостаточно. Каждый шаг должен иметь положительный эффект для вашего бизнеса. Поэтому вместе с извинениями желательно грамотно предложить альтернативу отсутствующему товару.
