Samples of sales letters

I'm having alot of trouble throwing together a sales letter to gain more accounts. This will be my first year in this business, and i know some of you have been doing this a lifetime. Do any of you guys use sales letters? If you do can you show me them, just so i can get ideas of what and what not to put in mine. Even if you dont have one, can you give me ideas of what to put in there, and also what NOT to put in there. Thank you

1... Get Attention
2... Show People an Advantage
3... Prove It
4... Persuade People To GRASP This Advantage
5... Ask For Action

These are your basic steps for formatting your letter...

Timing is very important in marketing, but if you can write a great sales letter, they will hold onto it until the timing is right...

Always highlight your "Unique Selling Proposition" and make sure you answer the most important customer question in advertising... "What's in it for me????"

Good Luck, Clay

PS... I helped Tom at "Everything Green" in Virginia write his sales letter and I think he is rather pleased... Ask him what he thinks at ChaseGregory@aol.com
