    I am making a newsletter type of thing to send out to all my customers. It basically is saying that I will be mowing more frequently, advertising mulch and spring clean ups, and thanking them.

    For some reason I cant think of what to put as the intro. Dear ____________. Dear customers or clients doesnt sound right. How do you greet them if the letter is generic going to all of your accounts? Thanks, sorry for the dubm question.

    Yeah I guess I'll use that. I just could not really put it together. I'm not an idiot I promise. This is the first time I have sent out any type of letter to everyone like this. Thanks for the help.

    I always use Dear valued customer.

    I don't think it sounds bad or unprofessional but thats JMO.

    If you have your customers in some kind of spreadsheet or table it is really not all that hard to create a mail merge in something like Word so that all of the newsletters are personalized. If can help walk you through if you wanted to do something like this.

    Thats alright, I appreciate it though. I really do not have that many accounts that it would be difficult to do.

    I agree, use their names. A more personal letter always make them feel like they matter.
