How to Write a Letter of Complaint for Poor Service

April 10, 2013

How to write a letter of complaint for poor service

No matter how good our intentions and efforts, there will be occasions when it is necessary to make a complaint.

One of the most common complaints involve reporting about poor customer service. Naturally, when you have a genuine complaint you will feel upset and tend to use offensive language in your letter. But I strongly urge you to show restraint in your letter, otherwise it would create ill-feeling and cause the other party to be unwilling to help you.

You will gain nothing by being insulting. In fact, you are much more likely to get what you want by being courteous and respectful.

Here’s a sample of a letter of complaint written in a respectful tone and gives clear indication of the reason for dissatisfaction. It also provides all the details for the other party to investigate the matter.

QuickStart Copywriting Checklist (Free PDF Download)

March 30, 2012

A Copywriting Checklist I Know You’ll Love (Yes, it’s Free!)

I value all my readers and I love to reward them with gifts in appreciation for their support towards my blog.

The gift I’m giving away is a Copywriting Checklist that I know you’ll appreciate (I spent several sleepless nights and invested plenty of tender loving care developing it).

As you know, there are so many important details to consider when writing a sales page or a marketing email. Sometimes, we tend to forget something as we rush to meet deadlines and do our best to get the job done properly at the same time.

Has that ever happened to you?

That’s why I love checklists. They keep me from forgetting to include all the important details in my sales copy and I’m sure you won’t
forget them too!

Just click the image below to download your copywriting checklist (yes, it’s free!). It’s in a PDF format that you can print and use right away. Stick it on your office wall if you’d like!

Download your free copywriting checklist here!

Meanwhile, here’s a quick note that I might be raising the price of my ebook as the weeks go by. Many of my readers have emailed me to ask how I am still able to keep my blog business viable since I’m offering my ebook at such a low price. They feel that I should make it available at a higher price since the value they’re getting out of my contents are worth so much more than the amount they invest.

I’m still considering their feedback, but as it stands now, it’s still available at just $9.97 :)

Go ahead and get your copy here.

Don’t Be Afraid to Write as You Speak!

February 6, 2012

Don’t Be Afraid to Write as You Speak!

I often find it amusing when I read my emails.

It almost always starts off with “Dear Marc”, and then goes on with “Please find herewith…” or “Kindly be advised..”

I find that amusing because not only does it sound old-fashioned and boring, they are just not written in the language that people speak.

Do you feel the same way too?

In modern sales writing, it is important that your messages are the same as what you would say to your readers if you were speaking to them face-to-face. If you were talking to somebody in person, you wouldn’t use words like “Dear Sir” or “Please be advised” would you?

Let’s say you want to invite somebody out on a date. Can you imagine going up to that person and saying “Dear Michelle, I would kindly like to invite you to a seafood restaurant tonight. It is a very famous restaurant located in town. Please kindly RSVP. “

You wouldn’t say it would you?

In fact, you are far more likely to say something like this, “Hey Michelle, there’s this new restaurant in town that’s famous for its amazing seafood! Why don’t we go try it out?”

See the difference in the emotions? One is written in the way that WE would speak, while the other is written in the way that our great-grandparents were taught to write in school.

In copywriting, it’s all about the results. Sometimes it doesn’t really matter if you write in perfect English or grammar as long as you achieve these 3 things:

  • Did you get your intended message across?
  • Was it interesting (and FUN) for other people to read?
  • Was it written in a conversational tone that you would normally say face-to-face with a friend?
