Posted by jshelston on 250 Points
I'm having trouble writing a letter requesting to use a customer's logo on our website. Does anyone have a template that I can personalize? TIA

    Would it be easier if you called a contact at the customer's company and got verbal agreement, and then followed up with a confirming letter? Somehow that seems like a softer, friendlier way to approach this.

    It's easier to say "no" to a piece of paper or message on a computer screen than to a real live human. And if the customer has a question, it's a lot easier for most folks to just ask it in the course of a person-to-person conversation than to compose it in a piece of correspondence and wait for an answer.

    Thanks for your comments. I also agree and yes, we do have strong relationships with these clients, but I'm just looking for a rough outline of important information to include in an email that I will personalize to each company. Any thoughts?

    Dear ______________,

    Your work on XYZ subject on ABC is really inspiring. Your article on PARTICULAR SUBJECT really caught my attention, and it's because of this that I'm writing to you to ask your advice.

    Starting on (DATE), my website on NICHE SUBJECT will offer content on SPECIFIC SUBJECT, which will feature the work of YOUR COMPANY NAME and how you've helped people successfully overcome PROBLEM 123 with your SOLUTION 123. Because I'll be featuring your company, I'm writing to ask permission to use COMPANY XYZ's logo in the article.

    To provide greater detail, I'd greatly appreciate the chance to discuss this outline with you in person. May I call your office on DATE/TIME? If an alternative date and time would be better for you, please call or e-mail me at YOUR PHONE NUMBER/ YOUR E-MAIL.

    Sincere thanks for your kind cooperation. I look forward to a mutually beneficial outcome.
