When people think of construction they think of hard hats, rough shod men and women, and bright orange safety vests. But you and I know that construction is big business and you have to look and act professional when you are working with clients. But you would be surprised at how many busy contractors are running around with dirty jeans and t-shirts when they meet with clients who are in charge of writing big checks for their projects.
A construction sales letter is no different than you. As a matter of fact, it’s you multiplied and it’s just as important as your first personal meeting with a client. The first contact is the one that sets the tone for your business.
But you don’t want to be too professional and bore your potential clients. A good sales letter for a contractor or construction company will convey the benefits of working with you and what sets you apart from the competition.
There is a second, third, fourth and fifth component to a construction business letter. You have to mail to your prospects more than once. In fact, you need to contact them over and over again because they will forget about you weeks after you send each letter.
So send two or three follow up letters, postcards, and even a newsletter. Include a promo item in at least one of the letters so that they have something in the office or home to remind them of you days after they trash your letter.
